One to go

Today’s guest picture from our son Tony shows an East Wemyss stairway. Not the ‘stairway to heaven’ but the next best thing. We had a grey but dry day today and with the temperature well above freezing, it seemed like a good day for both a bicycle ride and putting another slab in place inContinue reading “One to go”

Mrs Tootlepedal goes up in the world

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She has a very tall wall at the bottom of her little garden and she was quite surprised to look up one day to find a fox sitting on top of it. She is going to try to get a better picture next time it appears there.Continue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal goes up in the world”

The curtain falls

Today’s guest comes from our son Tony.  In spite of the endless sunshine, Christmas does come to East Wemyss and Tony likes to make good use of a log or two to welcome it. The day started with a trip to church where we sang some cheerful hymns chosen by a visiting minister and followedContinue reading “The curtain falls”

Power fencing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday.  He has sent me a lot of good pictures but this one gets my seal of approval. We had another fine day and I had hoped to get some useful cycling in, but a sore back when I got up put paid to anyContinue reading “Power fencing”

Taking the biscuit

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who took this charming view of St Paul’s  Cathedral across the river from the cafe outside the Tate Modern art gallery which she was visiting. We had plenty of sunshine here… …and quite a few birds… …on what would have been a grand day for a walkContinue reading “Taking the biscuit”

On the mend

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk on The Edge in Derbyshire which my brother Andrew shared with his walking group….and some cows….and some very nice weather. Our weather improved today but it was still pretty damp in the morning. I didn’t go out to take a flower picture until nearly midday. Oddly, many ofContinue reading “On the mend”

Short but sweet

Today’s guest picture is another bridge on the Brecon Canal from Irving, this time a rather more modern construction. After a night of wind and rain, the morning of the shortest day was only marginally better with the occasional heavy shower and very overcast skies. It was brightened by the arrival of Mike Tinker forContinue reading “Short but sweet”

Two excursions and a night out

Today’s guest picture comes from my Newcastle correspondent who visited a LEGO exhibition where she saw this magnificent if highly coloured model of St Pancras.  Rather strangely, it was in the  Woodhorn colliery museum. We started the day off here with a visit to the Moorland Feeders as I am a relief feeder filler forContinue reading “Two excursions and a night out”
