Good timing

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He looked out to sea and saw a family of eider ducks swimming in the distance. We had another cool, grey day here with more brisk winds and temperatures only reaching 15°C at midday. It made a sharp contrast with my sisters in LondonContinue reading “Good timing”

Very quiet

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is over in the east. He visited Chillingham castle and found a display of McLaren cars. I would have loved cars like this when I was young but now they just look difficult to get in to and impossible to get out of. We had aContinue reading “Very quiet”

Cloudy vision

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who found some flying birds indoors. She met these bronze choughs while having coffee at Kings Place in London. We had another cool day here, with occasional sunshine and occasional rain, very much in the style that we have become accustomed to recently. In response to aContinue reading “Cloudy vision”

Some unexpected miles

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He found a boat with an identity problem last month. I had to get up early this morning because the car was due for a service in Carlisle at half past eight Luckily Mrs Tootlepedal is an early riser and had some porridge onContinue reading “Some unexpected miles”

Treacle and the end of a long wait

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. On one of his walks, he noticed that his dog had got a personal cloud. There is only time for a brief post tonight as it has been a full day. Preparations for the visit of Matilda and her parents were in full swing and my firstContinue reading “Treacle and the end of a long wait”

Down but about

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie in London. She tried to get the bus driver to take her to the pot of gold but he insisted on sticking to his route. There was no chance of a pot of gold here today. We had more than enough rain for a rainbow, but notContinue reading “Down but about”

A quiet day

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary, who found a wonderful show of colour on a recent visit to the park. We are still a bit short of colour in our garden, which is no surprise after another chilly night. At least we had a good day to follow the cold night. In spiteContinue reading “A quiet day”

Social media proves useful

Today’s guest pictures come from Laura, my correspondent from Lake Michigan. She and her mother visited a tulip festival in Holland – the city near Lake Macatawa, not the country in Europe. They found some lovely tulips there in Riverview Park in Downtown Holland. We had another cool day here, with occasional rain and evenContinue reading “Social media proves useful”

Deja vu

Today’s guest picture comes from Elaine, the sister in law of our neighbour Liz. She is over on the east coast enjoying some fine weather at Beadnell Bay in Northumberland. We had some fine weather here too today, but sadly it didn’t even last until coffee time. It clouded over abruptly, and we sat inContinue reading “Deja vu”

Delayed gratification

Today’s guest picture comes from my Welsh correspondent Keiron. Injury is keeping him off his bike at the moment, but he still managed to get out and enjoy this nice waterfall at Ynysarwed. We had another warm night here, followed by another warm day, and this time there was no rain to spoil the morning.Continue reading “Delayed gratification”
