Farewell to our visitors

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother Andrew’s shots from his trip along the Thames yesterday. He has a lot of things to do just now, and he says that his head is spinning a lot faster than the London Eye was going round. Annie cooked some cheese and marmite pinwheels yesterday, and theyContinue reading “Farewell to our visitors”

A quiet day

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He looked up the other day and found a digger in his garden. (He has kindly allowed the couple who are converting the church next door into a dwelling house to run their drainage through his estate.) I would like to start this post by thanking the many peopleContinue reading “A quiet day”

Still no cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He is in London at the moment and enjoyed a walk up a hill yesterday. to get a view and a breath of fresh air. We had been promised warmer weather today by the forecast, but it was -5°C again at breakfast time and it didn’t getContinue reading “Still no cycling”

Six bridges!

Today’s guest picture is another stolen from contributions sent to me for the last camera club meeting. This is a view that Stan took when he was up a hill in the Ewes Valley. It shows just how flat and narrow the valley bottom is. Our spell of very mixed weather continued today, and itContinue reading “Six bridges!”

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”

A surprisingly dry wet walk

Today’s guest picture brings a little sunshine to another grey day here. My brother Andrew enjoyed the setting sun picking out the fine new pedestrian bridge across the A52 in Derby yesterday. Dropscone brightened up a rainy morning when he arrived (bearing scones) to share a cup of coffee or two with me and MrsContinue reading “A surprisingly dry wet walk”

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”

Home alone

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was on holiday yesterday and was able to wait until the sun had come up before taking his dogs out for a walk in the woods. After a very welcome sunny day here yesterday, there was no chance of seeing the sun atContinue reading “Home alone”

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”

A ray of sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from my Somerset correspondent Venetia’s trip to Norway. She sent me this ‘postcard’ from the most northerly town in mainland Europe. We had a better day here than yesterday as far as the weather went. Dropscone was complaining about the cold wind when he cycled round for scones and coffeeContinue reading “A ray of sunshine”
