Get up and go (but not much)

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone and shows a handy chart telling me where to get my coffee from.  He found it in a coffee shop in Bromley, Kent. I had quite a full day today with a very contrasting set of weather conditions to go with it. I had to getContinue reading “Get up and go (but not much)”

A certain lack of sparkle

Today’s guest picture comes from one of Dropscone’s walks with his new camera.  He saw this vision of sunshine through a hole in the wall about ten days ago. There was no vision of sunshine here today as yet another morning of wind and drizzle kept our spirits low. Luckily we had the writing, stampingContinue reading “A certain lack of sparkle”

Under the rainbow

Today’s guest picture is the last from Tom’s wild life adventures in South Africa. We had another late start today but it didn’t matter much because it was miserable, wet and nasty morning, not fit for anything other than sitting over the breakfast table and doing the crossword.  We managed to get breakfast finished inContinue reading “Under the rainbow”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture comes in duplex form, courtesy of Irving Davidson and Alan Weatherstone who were both at the road side during the Muckletoon Adventure Festival’s cycle hill climb this evening.   They were kind enough to let me see the results of their expert photography.  In Irving’s picture on the left, I am going uphillContinue reading “Uphill work”

Sing, sing, sing

Today’s guest picture shows a fine stone bridge across the splendidly named Manifold River.  It was taken by my brother last month. After a night of rain, the morning was still gloomy and dank but for a moment it looked as though there might be a gap in the weather and while Mrs Tootlepedal gotContinue reading “Sing, sing, sing”

A happy chap

Today’s guest picture from my sister Mary shows some reflections on the Regent’s Canal. The day started with s stiff breeze and a good deal of rain but the breeze was quite a lot less strident than yesterday’s near gale and the garden was full of goldfinches as a result.  They didn’t always seem veryContinue reading “A happy chap”

Laying it on

Today’s guest picture, sent by Maisie’s mum, shows Maisie’s granddad being well looked after during his visit to NZ.  I hope he and Alison get back safely as I am missing our Friday evenings of music and conversation. Unlike the shirtsleeve weather in New Zealand, there was ice about here when we woke up andContinue reading “Laying it on”

As predicted

I am still lacking a guest picture at the moment so here is a flower from the garden.  There will not be many years when you will be able to find a wallflower in bloom here so near to the winter solstice. The weather forecasters hit the nail on the head today and we hadContinue reading “As predicted”

Puff, whizz, puff, whizz, puff, whizz, coffee.

Today’s picture is from stock as I have not received any recent offerings from friend or family….or if I have, I can’t find them. After another night of rain, the day dawned remarkably pleasantly and being forewarned by an accurate forecast,  I rose promptly and got out the slower bike straight after breakfast.   ThereContinue reading “Puff, whizz, puff, whizz, puff, whizz, coffee.”
