Summer day

It was a lovely day in Edinburgh today and Mrs Tootlepedal’s guest picture of the day shows TWGT on Portobello promenade beside the sea. For some reason, I felt a touch weary this morning so I let Mrs Tootlepedal go off to Edinburgh by herself. Because there wasn’t a chilly wind blowing, this felt likeContinue reading “Summer day”
