More cake

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who noticed this unusual street sign in an alley when he was on a visit to Spondon. It was quite an appropriate sign for the post today, as I seemed to spend quite a lot of the day eating. After breakfast, I cycled round to the cornerContinue reading “More cake”

Having my cake and eating it

Today’s guest picture completes a trilogy of recent East Wemyss scenes; day, dawn and dusk. This is dusk today, as seen by our son Tony. It was my birthday today, and the weather gods obliged by presenting Langholm with a beautifully sunny morning to greet me when I got up. Just to make sure thatContinue reading “Having my cake and eating it”

Rest and recuperation

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline. She met this fine example of Halloween yarn bombing when she was out and about in Portsmouth. We had a brighter and mostly dry day today, which was very welcome in spite of the fact that I couldn’t make the best use of it because I wasContinue reading “Rest and recuperation”

Quick cooking, slow cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. Just to show that the sun doesn’t always shine on East Wemyss, he sent us this picture of the moon shining there this evening instead. There was no sun to be seen in Langholm when we got up this morning. The clouds were clamped down on theContinue reading “Quick cooking, slow cycling”

A drop of golden sun

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He visited Melbourne in Derbyshire and got a good view of a very full reservoir on a fine day. We had a warmer morning here today after our recent frosty starts, but this was because the skies were cloudy and we could not see the top ofContinue reading “A drop of golden sun”

Choir, no choir, extra choir

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alastair. He spotted a fine Halloween rainbow in Edinburgh this afternoon. After more overnight rain, we woke to another grey and rainy morning here. We walked to church in the dry, but we had to scuttle back home with our coats buttoned up as it was raining heavilyContinue reading “Choir, no choir, extra choir”

A lot to do

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She was visiting the Tate Modern art gallery when she took this picture of the River Thames and a familiar landmark. Our unseasonable warm spell continued today, but with only very fleeting glimpses of sunshine. It is mostly quite grey, but as it didn’t rain, we didn’tContinue reading “A lot to do”

More sound advice

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He had a lot better weather than we had yesterday when he went for his walk. We had another grey morning here today, with the occasional hint of drizzle, and we were very quiet for a while after breakfast, until we got out into the garden forContinue reading “More sound advice”

Good advice

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She made use of the brand new Nine Elms tube station in London on the very first day that it opened for business. She says that it is more impressive inside than it looks from outside. We had another grey day here with the temperature once againContinue reading “Good advice”

Singing and a sad farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. It has been another cold and gloomy day here, so I looked back into my files to find a sunny scene which she took when the weather was better some days ago. You can tell that it was before the lockdown ended. The day started with MatildaContinue reading “Singing and a sad farewell”
