Presents from above

Today’s guest picture comes from my recorder playing friend Susan.  She works in Carlisle and had to take the bus to work today as access to her car parking space was impossible.  The lake on the right of the picture is in fact a riverside park and only a temporary lake. They may have hadContinue reading “Presents from above”

Norwegian weather

Today’s guest post is another from Joyce’s Bermuda collection.  As well as glorious beaches she visited the zoo at Flatt Island where she found this lovely lemur. When we woke up, we were very pleased to find the Norwegian weather forecast had been reliable and we had a second sunny day in succession.  What wasContinue reading “Norwegian weather”

A small step

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony and the kingdom of everlasting sunshine, East Wemyss.  If you look closely, you might see a seal on the rock in the foreground and perhaps a cormorant too. After our recent sunny spell, we went back to rather grey and gloomy today, but the silver liningContinue reading “A small step”

A pleasant surprise

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my sister Mary.  She went to the Haynes International Motor museum in Yeovil with her friend Venetia, and her eye was caught by this shiny Morris Oxford 6 saloon from 1930. I got up intending to have a quick breakfast and go cycling but like so manyContinue reading “A pleasant surprise”

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”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture is from our son Tony and shows that the temperature was lower in Fife than it was here this morning. We had been promised a day of freezing fog so it was a pleasant surprise to find no fog and a temperature of two degrees above zero when we got up.   ItContinue reading “Uphill work”

Out and out

Today’s guest picture shows our son Tony’s dogs visiting the castle near his home in Fife.  I may have used this picture before (I can’t remember) but I have put it in regardless to remind myself that Mrs Tootlepedal and I stood in that exact spot last weekend. It was a day of mixed weatherContinue reading “Out and out”

Help from afar

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother who found this slightly unlikely windmill.  It is not producing flour but dispensing curried sausages in the market square in Nottingham.  Well I never, what next? We had a chilly day here but it was dry which was a relief after some overnight rain.  My leg rehabilitation isContinue reading “Help from afar”

A treat

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone’s niece Hilary.  It is of an Egyptian Vulture.  It was taken at Zurich Zoo on Saturday and makes Mr Grumpy look like a little ray of sunshine. Little rays of sunshine were in short supply here today as this was the view when we got up.Continue reading “A treat”
