Home again

Today’s guest picture is from my sister Mary’s recent visit to the Lake District where she stopped at a cafe in Grange and enjoyed this lovely view. We stopped at a cafe today.  This one was at a garden centre near North Berwick where we had an excellent breakfast this morning as we left forContinue reading “Home again”

On and off

There are two guest pictures from Clare today which show why Matilda was so cheerful yesterday.  She went on a boat trip round the Bass Rock with her aunt and cousin…… …and saw lots of gannets. (This one was taken by Clare with her phone while holding Matilda in a rocking boat.  That takes greatContinue reading “On and off”

Life in the slow lane

After yesterday’s busy day, I took things quietly today.  I was helped by a very windy day which discouragedContinue reading “Life in the slow lane”

We didn’t have quite the same mountains to look at here today, but we did have some excellent sunshine.  It was still freezing when we got up but the sunshineContinue reading “Mob handed”

A little bit extra

Although we had to get up an hour earlier because of the clock change, it was brilliantly sunny so we noticed no difference in the light.  The birdsContinue reading “A little bit extra”

International cycling

Today’s picture shows an  interesting cake which Dropscone picked up for an extremely modest price when coming through Hawick yesterday evening.  I thought that it looked unnervingly like a set of frogs peering out of a very muddy pond which may have affected my ability to truly enjoy my slice. Freezing temperatures again put paidContinue reading “International cycling”
