Progress

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who has been enjoying her walks up to Kenwood recently. She had this fine view of the grounds on Wednesday. We had a cool, grey morning here today, definitely feeling like autumn a lot more than like late summer. It stayed dry though, but with the temperatureContinue reading “Progress”

Not a scone to be seen

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s recent trip to the central belt of Scotland.  He found a bit of a wall there that wasn’t built by Hadrian. There was torrential rain to the south of us today, leading to serious flooding in England but it was warm and dry here when I got up.  ThereContinue reading “Not a scone to be seen”

Sight and sound

Today’s guest picture comes from my Newcastle correspondent, Fiona.  She travelled as far as Durham, took a trip on the river and looked up at the cathedral as she drew near. It was a dull, often rainy and always windy day today so I wasn’t unhappy to spend most of the morning going off withContinue reading “Sight and sound”

The inside story

Today’s guest picture, from our daughter-in-law Clare, provided the only ray of sunshine we saw all day.  You can see what made Matilda so happy tomorrow. It was a foul day here as far as the weather went, the authorities having decided that one sunny day at a time was more than enough for us.Continue reading “The inside story”

Thank goodness for the Olympics

Today’s guest picture is another from our recent week as guests in the south.  Sally and Richard took us to the gardens of this fine mansion, Heale House, which was built in the latter part of the sixteenth century. My ideal plan for the day relied on an early leap out of bed into gloriousContinue reading “Thank goodness for the Olympics”

Too much choice

Today’s guest picture comes from my daughter who has acquired the use of a small allotment.  She is very proud of her chard which she has grown from seed. When I looked at the weather forecast last night, I noticed that the wind speed in the evening was recorded as ‘calm’,  i.e 0 mph.  ThisContinue reading “Too much choice”

Puffed out

Today’s guest picture comes from the world’s greatest baby’s other grandfather.  Matilda is requesting some more demanding mental arithmetic and her mother is trying to think of a suitable question. I didn’t have to think what to do today as it was perfect for cycling and I had nothing on my calendar to do instead. Continue reading “Puffed out”

Teething troubles

Today’s picture shows a very neatly stacked pile of Swiss firewood spotted by Dropscone’s sister Elizabeth while in the country. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to work again and I managed to stick to my plan and put the speedy bike in the back of the car and drive to Annan without any interruptions.  I hadContinue reading “Teething troubles”
