Going nuts

Today’s guest picture from Bruce got a little closer to the horse in the field.  There turned out to be two of them. The forecast was right and we had another sunny day but it was even colder than yesterday and struggled to get above 3°C all day. Mrs Tootlepedal and I gave up anyContinue reading “Going nuts”

A good decision

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother’s recent peregrinations.  He passed the south door of York Minster on his travels. I was slightly annoyed to find that I was no better when I woke up this morning.  If anything, I was a little worse.  My throat was better and I had stopped sounding like aContinue reading “A good decision”

An outing

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother who has recently visited Whitby and took this excellent picture of the town. We were promised a nice day today and although it had rained again over night, it wasn’t a bad morning even though it was cloudy and rather chilly again.  I was in no rush toContinue reading “An outing”

Slow going

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who found a wonderful display of crocuses on a visit to Parliament Hill Fields. We had another chilly morning with a touch of frost about so yet again I spent quite a lot of time watching the thermometer rising at a snail’s pace while I did the Continue reading “Slow going”

A little light headed

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia.  She has strayed as far from Somerset as Madeira and sent me this picture from the Mercado dos Lavradores there. After yesterday’s very dank and gloomy weather, it was a relief to wake up to some friendly sunshine this morning.  As it was combined with reasonable temperatures,Continue reading “A little light headed”

Get up and gone

Today’s guest picture comes from Tony & Co’s visit to Cephalonia.   They had some high spots in their holiday and this is one of them. My get up and go had no option but to return today as the first business of the day was to get up and go to Carlisle.   I was actingContinue reading “Get up and gone”

Out to lunch

No guest picture of the day today (hint, hint) and a rather dull blog,  The picture below gives a clue as to why that should be. I was hoping to go a bit further but I got to bed too late last night and didn’t get up early enough today so that by the timeContinue reading “Out to lunch”

A final fling

Today’s guest picture shows fungus on Hampstead Heath in London and was sent to my daughter by her friend Claudia with the note that I might find it interesting.  She was right. The day started with a successful attempt to get my cycling mileage up to my target for the year of 5000 miles.  AContinue reading “A final fling”

Step one

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by my neighbour Liz, who has just been on holiday in Spain, shows a handsome monument carved from an eucalyptus tree that she saw there.  The ladder gives a clue as to its height. I had time for breakfast and not much else before setting off to Dumfries InfirmaryContinue reading “Step one”
