Winding about

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He came across a tree full of waxwings in East Wemyss yesterday. It was grey and chilly when we got up here this morning, but it was above freezing so that was welcome. After a leisurely breakfast and an enjoyable crossword, I roused myself enough to haveContinue reading “Winding about”

Up to a point

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. It shows our granddaughter Evie leading me across the hill this afternoon. The guest picture takes away quite a lot of the tension that I was hoping to build up regarding whether the weather would lighten up in time to let us get out for a walk.Continue reading “Up to a point”

A misty pedal

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew who is staying in London to help my sister Mary for a while. Our other sister Caroline joined them today. Andrew took this picture of Hawley Lock at Camden on a sunny but chilly day in the south. The temperature crept up a degree or twoContinue reading “A misty pedal”

A surprise

Just to show that it still often sunny in East Wemyss, our son Tony sent us this picture taken a couple of days ago. We expected it to be cold this morning, but all the same we got quite a shock when we looked out of the window when we got up. The snow didn’tContinue reading “A surprise”

Second sight

I have stolen today’s guest picture from some which Big Deev sent me to show at the Camera Club meeting on the theme of winter. The day started well in three ways: firstly, it wasn’t raining, secondly the replacement lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader arrived in the post, and thirdly, when Nancy andContinue reading “Second sight”

Definitely dreich

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He came across this unusual bird a day or two ago. It was raining today when we got up, and things didn’t improve as the day went on. As it was cold and pretty windy too, the best thing to do was to stay inside. Fortunately bothContinue reading “Definitely dreich”

Changeable

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who kindly forwarded this picture taken by his partner Marianne from her place of work this morning. Some workplaces have better views than others. I had to be up and about quite sharply today. The new lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader had arrived and IContinue reading “Changeable”

Musical pews, chairs and seats

Today’s guest picture comes from our granddaughter Evie who recently took her parents to enjoy the lights at Kew Gardens. As she is only three, it is possible that she commissioned one of her parents to take the actual photograph. It was dull but dry when we got up, and Mrs Tootlepedal and I tookContinue reading “Musical pews, chairs and seats”

Staying in and going out

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She had the chance to go down to the river and enjoy some sunshine a couple of days ago. We had no sunshine to enjoy here, as we were literally under a cloud all day. We were not entirely idle though. I went shopping, Margaret came roundContinue reading “Staying in and going out”

Boxing clever

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He spotted some grasses being tossed this way and that by a brisk breeze while he was on his walk this afternoon. After a very rainy night, we had a rainy day here until well into the afternoon. As a result we had time on our handsContinue reading “Boxing clever”
