Cutting it fine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair, and shows just the sort of delicious meal that we would be enjoying if we were allowed to go to Edinburgh to visit Matilda. We are missing Matilda but we are missing Al’s cooking too. We had a dry but windy day today, windy and chilly enoughContinue reading “Cutting it fine”

Ten minutes of rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She mowed her lawn today but tells me not to look too closely at it.  It looks good to me. We had another lovely morning and as a result, Mrs Tootlepedal had to spend a good deal of the day watering the garden.  Even after a goodContinue reading “Ten minutes of rain”

Winter draws (back on)

Today’s guest picture is a delightful pastoral scene which my Somerset correspondent Venetia captured a week ago on one of her permitted walks. The temperature was back to being well down in single figures again this morning and I dressed accordingly when I got up after my usual lockdown morning routine of leisurely breakfast andContinue reading “Winter draws (back on)”

The B picture

I have got a great many potential guest pictures of the day on hand at the moment so if I don’t use them all, I apologise.  Today’s is a starfish which our son Tony spotted while out on a walk recently. We had a wildly different and exciting day today…..no, I am fibbing there.  WeContinue reading “The B picture”

Bedding in

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Gavin who is making friends with a cactus out in Spain while we shiver here. We had some equivalent sunshine at the start of the day…. …but it couldn’t disguise the fact that it was jolly chilly again and I had to put a coat on as IContinue reading “Bedding in”

Sunny Sunday morning

Today’s guest picture is another from Bruce. He found this signpost near Carlisle and thinks that it might be of more interest to cyclists than motorists. There had been wild talk of 7°C in the forecasts for today but the reality was 3° when we woke and 4.5° when Mrs Tootlepedal went off to churchContinue reading “Sunny Sunday morning”

Straightforward (and back)

pain Today’s guest picture shows sunset over the Mersey.  My brother is in Liverpool. It was a calm day with a good forecast so when Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing with the church choir, I got the fairly speedy bike out and made good use of some light Sunday traffic by cycling up theContinue reading “Straightforward (and back)”

Another pedal, another song

We need brightening up as winter closes in here so today’s cheery picture was taken by my brother in Sydney on his travels. It was dry and fairly bright again this morning and the temperature had hit 6.5C by the time I had finished making a lamb stew for the slow cooker. After I hadContinue reading “Another pedal, another song”

A garden visitor

Today’s guest picture is from my brother Andrew and is another canal shot from his recent visit to Amsterdam.  I take the view that you can’t have too many canal shots. It was another dry day but with some cloud cover and a brisk north easterly wind, it felt quite chilly and I didn’t setContinue reading “A garden visitor”

Transatlantic visitors

Today’s picture was sent by Dropscone who has been refereeing at an international competition for young players from all over the world near Edinburgh.  A nice finish to a swing from this seven year old lad. We were forced to endure another day of beautiful weather today whether we liked it or not.  We likedContinue reading “Transatlantic visitors”
