I made an unambitious plan earlier in the year that throughout the month of December I would post just one photograph every day, which would not necessarily be of great merit but would merely record one aspect of my day. This could prove to be difficult next week because I am going to be away (Marrakech actually ....) and I am not taking my laptop so I will be rather reliant on my daughter's iPhone. If that wheeze doesn't work then I will just have to catch up with myself when I get back.
So here is the first photograph for today, Sunday, 1 December 2013
and, because it has been such a perfect day and Mr Gaucho, Tilly and I enjoyed a lovely walk in amongst the Lammermuirs, I am adding a few extra photos because it was all just too good not to share.

We were accompanied on our walk by the chattering of black grouse. Apart from the occasional frantic flapping flight from one patch of bracken to another, we didn't see many of them but they were definitely there. Very vocal creatures!
