The same again

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss.  “Are there any shore birds about”, I asked him.  “Plenty”, he said.  And sent me the proof. Life in the lockdown goes on in a well ordered pattern of pottering, walking and cycling and today was no different. After breakfast and the crossword, IContinue reading “The same again”

Not here

Today’s guest picture from our son Alistair, shows that Matilda needed a parasol to cope with the bright sunshine in Edinburgh today. We didn’t get any sunshine here at all.  What made things more annoying was incessant talk on the radio about not letting the good weather tempt us to go out and have funContinue reading “Not here”

Sing, walk, sing, sit down

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo in Manitoba.  She was unimpressed by my flimsy  footwear in a recent picture on the blog and sent me this shot of real boot quality in her latest pair. The ‘wet day’ marmalade which I made yesterday has set well, and this morning I put the caps onContinue reading “Sing, walk, sing, sit down”

Crotchets and crochet

Today’s guest picture comes from my ex colleague Marjorie who sent me this picture of a misty Schiehallion taken during her highland break over the festive season. We woke to another chilly grey day here but the weather forecast suggested that a little sunshine might be available in the afternoon.  This turned out to beContinue reading “Crotchets and crochet”

Calm

Today’s guest picture from my brother Andrew shows the Christmas skating rink in Derby.  These seasonal rinks have become very popular and we passed one in Edinburgh on Thursday.  I would think that skating on a wet day like this would encourage the skaters to stay upright at all costs. It was calm and mistyContinue reading “Calm”

Another eponymous day

Today’s guest picture comes from our friends Mike and Alison who are on holiday in Wales.  It is a picture of a small church near Hundred House.  It has, as Mike points out, big bells and sunshine. I was doubly surprised this morning as the forecast had talked of strong winds and rain in Scotland. Continue reading “Another eponymous day”

Hedge scratching

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit my sister Mary paid to the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park a day or two ago.  It seems like a very good place to visit at this time of year. We had yet another dry and windy day today but it was a bit warmer than it hasContinue reading “Hedge scratching”
