Busy doing nothing

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He was up at the crack of dawn today with his dogs to see a typical East Wemyss day in the making. On the other side of the country, we had a different picture when we got up (several hours later than Tony) with mist covered hillsContinue reading “Busy doing nothing”

A stay at home day

Today’s guest picture is a second from my brother Andrew’s trip to King’s Lynn. He passed through Peterborough on his way, and sent me another nice bridge shot. I had a very uneventful time here today where it was cool under grey clouds for the most part. There was a little burst of sunshine inContinue reading “A stay at home day”

Winding down

Today’s guest picture is another of Laura’s from St Joseph, Michigan. We got up to some heavy showers and strong winds here today. It wasn’t the best weather for the last day of Clare, Alistair and Matilda’s stay with us, but we made the best of it. Mrs Tootlepedal had a busy morning taking theContinue reading “Winding down”

Nothing doing

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia. I think this must have been a stopping point on her journey north. The offer of tea and cakes seems attractive. We had a better day here, slightly warmer and slightly less windy. As the sun often came out, it was much more pleasant in the garden too. ThisContinue reading “Nothing doing”

Sandy goes over the top

Today’s guest picture, which was sent to me by my sister Mary, is from her recent visit to Kew Gardens. The thermometer said that it was rather cool at breakfast time but the air outside was paying no attention to the thermometer and it seemed to be pleasantly warm again as I set off forContinue reading “Sandy goes over the top”

Another go at resting

Today’s guest picture shows William and Sara, who are being looked after by their grandparents Mike and Alison, enjoying a visit to Hermitage Castle.  It was almost as much fun as frog hunting. As I spent most of it sitting down, working hard at some serious resting in an effort to chase away the hipContinue reading “Another go at resting”

Dumped

Today’s guest picture was kindly sent to me by Tuckamoredew, the fearless sub-zero Canadian cyclist aka Keith.  He spotted these mud nests on the underside of a bridge as he passed.  I have cruelly cropped his picture so I hope he forgives me. Dropscone and I had another fine day for our morning pedal butContinue reading “Dumped”
