So we wanted some more summery weather in Windsor, but now it’s here, it’s too hot! It’s over 30 degrees C and humid. I’ve had a migraine and generally feel a bit exhausted with it all.
Last night was very pleasant as per the picture above. We had dinner sitting outside at Gogos Waterfront restaurant at Windsor marina, next to the racecourse. It was a beautiful evening to watch the sun setting. The colours of the sky changed very gradually. Lovely to watch.
Here’s one of the big boats there. Not mine, obviously…!
The waitress told us she felt lucky to work in such a beautiful spot, like the Mediterranean.. (sometimes!).
It was busy but not unbearably so.
As for next week, the government are mad!!! What on Earth is going on with “freedom day”, more like “suicide day”. There are going to be hundreds more people dying from Covid. Most people seem to think this opening up, throw your mask away, go clubbing and pretend the pandemic is over now policy is bonkers! I will miss the table service in bars. I will miss the spaced out tables, the personal space, the protection and peace of mind we give each other with our mask wearing. I am very apprehensive about what happens next, especially as there are now doubly vaccinated people getting poorly with Covid. The new health secretary for one, my friend’s husband for another..
Boris and Rishi Sunak are now going to isolate, after their ridiculous very brief idea that the rules didn’t apply to them. What a joke! This government goes from bad to worse. Half the country will soon be pinged to self isolate through their silly app that doesn’t work properly at this rate. So much pressure on businesses, the health service, all of us.
OMG politics on The Waffle. This does not usually occur. Things must be bad!
On the plus side we had a delicious roast chicken dinner in the garden tonight. With some potatoes harvested from The Waffle plot. They were so yummy but small, I think they need another couple of weeks in the ground really, to grow a bit bigger. We also had carrots, broccoli, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. For pudding was sticky toffee pudding (not made by me) and vanilla ice cream 😋.
It’s time for bath and bed now. I shouldn’t grumble as we have wonderful A/C in our bedroom unlike most houses in the UK. Sleeping in a fridge. Bliss!!
