Sweet peas etc

Hello everyone. This is my 100th blog post. Happy century to me! I have lots to tell you and show you today, as I only did a short post last time. Also the supper tonight is already prepared so I have a bit more blogging time..yippee! Here’s the pie I prepared yesterday… Nigel Slater’s sausage and potato pie. Well, it’s not Nigel’s any more, it’s mine! And I plan to gobble this all up very soon, hot or cold, it’s usually delicious. I suppose I might share it with David…

Now, back to the sweet peas, which are looking lovely. I think my grandfather would be proud of me, although I could never compete with his wonderful efforts. These are my grandfather’s from the 1960s. The house used to smell of them placed in vases inside, gorgeous!

If you missed the blog post this historic photo is from “A trip down memory lane”. You can check out some more of my grandparents’ garden in West Sussex by clicking on the link here. I would put this post in my top ten favourite posts out of my 100 I’ve shared with you so far.

David tried to tell me the other day that my pink sweet peas would turn purple later and they were all actually the same colour bloom but at different stages. Well, this is not true! I definitely have pink ones and purple ones, pale and dark. Look!

I love them all! ❤️❤️❤️

I also still love my new home office.

I have just completed the final item of the office so the printer is no longer sitting on the floor to the right of the desk. I went decopatch crazy and decopatched the whole printer trolley in blue paper! I’d never decopatched any furniture before.

This isn’t new, but I have a mini art gallery going on in my office on the wall opposite the desk. I’ll tell you more about my pictures next time.

Today at lunchtime I stopped to admire the church windows again at All Saints’ Church, Frances Road in Windsor.

I’m not a religious person, but I do like historic buildings and church architecture. This church stands at a jaunty angle and has a Thomas Hardy altarpiece inside they uncovered a few years ago. A couple of times recently someone has been playing the organ and this lovely music has been wafting out into the street.

Another one of my favourite post/s was my walk around Windsor in the sunshine, just before lockdown. It was a serene time with not many folks about as I explored and photographed local church architecture. If you missed the posts “Hallelujah” and then “Bad hair day?” which continued on with my church photos along with early lockdown hair worries (!) you can catch up with them here and here. I STILL haven’t had a hair cut.. not since New Year’s Eve!!!!… I’m now used to it longer. No stress just lots of hair slides and bands. I might have it trimmed next week, who knows.. still considering the matter! David meanwhile has had 3 (relatively) successful haircuts at my hands. Who would have thought this is what our lives and hair would have looked like this year, who would have thought….?!

  1. Your office looks really nice. You can have done a very good job.
    I love sweet peas, as I mentioned before, when you spoke about them. I miss the smell.
