Easy like Sunday morning

Today’s picture was sent by my Newcastle correspondent and shows her son on an outing to the Soutar Lighthouse near Sunderland which happily coincided with a kite festival.  I would have liked to have been there. My morning was a bit less exciting.  After a late breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in theContinue reading “Easy like Sunday morning”

Another go at resting

Today’s guest picture shows William and Sara, who are being looked after by their grandparents Mike and Alison, enjoying a visit to Hermitage Castle.  It was almost as much fun as frog hunting. As I spent most of it sitting down, working hard at some serious resting in an effort to chase away the hipContinue reading “Another go at resting”

Today’s guest picture is from the camera of Mrs Tootlepedal and shows Matilda in her grandly named ‘personal transport system’.

What a shower

Today’s guest picture is another stunner from one of my sister Mary’s visits to Regent’s park in London. I had an up and down experience with the weather and the weather forecast today.  Last night, when Dropscone and I were considering a morning run today, the forecast painted a picture of unrelieved gloom with heavyContinue reading “What a shower”

Waiting for the man

Today’s guest picture shows the delightful town of Rye.  It is a town which used to be a port and is now several miles from the English Channel coast.  It was sent to me by my brother-in-law Huseyin. I couldn’t go for a morning pedal with Dropscone today as Mrs Tootlepedal and I were waitingContinue reading “Waiting for the man”

I love it when a plan…..(a pedal and a tootle)

Today’s picture, sent to me by my daughter, shows a well known Edinburgh dog.  He is named after a church and has a pub named after him.  I have often in my youth tipped my hat to him when passing on the way from the pub but only once when passing on the way to theContinue reading “I love it when a plan…..(a pedal and a tootle)”
