Heavy drinking

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She had a very sunny day today for a trip down the river passing under Vauxhall Bridge. By contrast, we had a very grey day here, but as it was quite warm at 8 degrees and we spent a lot of the day in the car drivingContinue reading “Heavy drinking”

A toddle and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony wishes to point that they get the moon there too. We got plenty of sunshine here today, but as the temperature was a measly -5°C at breakfast time, there was no inclination to go outside and do some sunbathing. Mrs Tootlepedal went off toContinue reading “A toddle and a tootle”

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!”

Definitely dreich

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He came across this unusual bird a day or two ago. It was raining today when we got up, and things didn’t improve as the day went on. As it was cold and pretty windy too, the best thing to do was to stay inside. Fortunately bothContinue reading “Definitely dreich”

Changeable

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who kindly forwarded this picture taken by his partner Marianne from her place of work this morning. Some workplaces have better views than others. I had to be up and about quite sharply today. The new lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader had arrived and IContinue reading “Changeable”

A much better use of some sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair who has visited his local park. It shows that Mr Grumpy’s relatives are branching out in Edinburgh. After some heavy overnight rain, it was a relief to wake up to a dull but dry morning today, with the temperature well above freezing. In these dark days atContinue reading “A much better use of some sunshine”

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”

Shortbread and a short walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent correspondent, Venetia. She has recently been on a trip to Norway. She was much amused to find that the pipes on this public bench were filled with hot water to ensure a comfortable seat on chilly days We didn’t get the friendly weather which we would haveContinue reading “Shortbread and a short walk”
