Quick change

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who came across these interesting flats built inside old gas holder frames while she was on a walk beside a canal. We had a pretty miserable sort of day here for the middle of July. It stayed cool, just creeping over 60°F/15°C at its peak. The sunContinue reading “Quick change”

A higher purpose

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk my sister Mary took through the rose garden in Regents Park last week. Our unsettled weather continued here today with the morning peppered with short showers, some of them quite sharp with a little hail thrown in. This curtailed our street coffee meeting and kept gardening to aContinue reading “A higher purpose”

Acting my age

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  When I looked back at his pictures from Kirkcaldy’s Highland Games on the beach, I saw that as well as cyclists and runners, they had these curious characters too. It was the day of the wires in our garden and luckily, the wire hangers had a fineContinue reading “Acting my age”

Short in the tooth

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair, and shows his daughter Matilda in the nice new dress which her Granny has made for her. No prizes for guessing the theme of the performance. We had much better weather today which was very welcome, but it turned out that I had lost a filling fromContinue reading “Short in the tooth”

A dull day in every way

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce.  Having left Scotland by sailing under three bridges across the Forth, he has sent me this picture of sailing under another bridge and not just any old bridge but The Bridge.  Yes, that one, the Øresund Bridge, familiar to all lovers of Scandinavian Noir TV. Bruce may have had sunny weatherContinue reading “A dull day in every way”

A welcome forecasting error

Today’s guest picture shows a very nice bridge that my sister Mary met in the Lake District last week.  You can see Lancrigg Hotel in the background.  She tells me that Wordsworth used to sit and write poetry there. After our brief burst of unseasonably warm and sunny weather, we were promised a day of continualContinue reading “A welcome forecasting error”

Cooking and singing

Today’s guest picture shows a lovely old fashioned VW Camper, done up for a wedding in Carlisle.  It was noticed by Bruce who kindly sent me the picture. I wonder if it will host the honeymoon too. It was another day when an early start would have been rewarded with fine cycling conditions but asContinue reading “Cooking and singing”
