Hello everyone but especially hello today to the Swansea girls! You know who you are… Sarah, Sally, Emily and Jo. It occurred to me that it was time Swansea got a mention and these lovely ladies too. We are more likely to be seen in London than Swansea these days, but of course these days we are all cooped up in our individual homes missing each other’s company.
For those of you now missing Swansea, I am about to make it worse by showing you a big chocolate sundae from Joe’s, probably the best ice cream shop in the world. Actually there are a few branches of them in Swansea. After lockdown, just go there, you won’t regret it, although don’t go telling all you friends or anything, we don’t want the queues getting too long.
Oh for a walk on Three Cliffs Bay or out at Rhossili. What lucky people having their lockdown walks there with the sea air tangling their hair. Whilst the rest of us walk round and around our boring suburban housing estates. Enough torture thinking about that, what news from The Waffle household?
Well, I’m quite excited about tonight’s dinner which is going to be crab mac ’n cheese from a Waitrose recipe card. I haven’t made this before but I love crab.. still thinking about the seaside. And who doesn’t like pasta and cheese. This recipe also has spinach in it. Had to be healthy in some small way. Getting hungry now.
In The Waffle garden I believe there are now 5 sunflowers 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻. How exciting. Here’s one. It’s actually tiny, a lot smaller than it looks here.
A couple of weeks ago husband and I each planted a pot of begonias. David’s looks like this…
Whereas mine, disappointingly looks like this….
David has accused me of planting my tubers upside down and threatened to dig mine up and start again, but I have restrained him. I seem to remember topping up the pot with compost after planting, so I think mine are planted deeper than his, but they are fine. I have faith in my little babies.
The leftover flowers from Sarah and my parents have been amalgamated and now look like this. My birthday is carrying on in a small way… yippee!
I hope you’re all doing well, eating nice dinners etc. Have a nice relaxing evening, here’s the photos of the day…xx

Lovely pics and memories, though as you saysome locals won’t thank you for sending the post-lockdown hordes to Joe’s !
Thanks Martin, I’m loving the blogging. It’s quite addictive. And discovering other people’s interesting blogs like yours! At least we can still travel in our minds and memories to lovely places like The Gower even if not in person.
Yay, I am famous 🙂
You’re so right about the sea air. Although Bethan knows that leaving Cornwall was the right thing to do (the hospital provision in Falmouth/Truro isn’t extensive), I can’t tell you how much she is missing the sea air. She used to be able to walk from her house to the beach in just over minutes 😦
