The lavender is out

Hi. How do you like our lavender? We have 2 big pots of this at the front of the house. We used to plant these pots up with something like begonias every year. The lavenders are less work and more cost effective as they stay in the pots year round. I believe the bees likeContinue reading “The lavender is out”

Random Tuesday chat

Hi folks. I’m guessing this guy above is a giant Hagrid from Harry Potter. He’s made from Lego and I spotted him in Bentalls in Kingston today. It was a tediously long day. I spent many hours in Kingston waiting for my Mum’s dental appointment. David took me really early to Staines on the wayContinue reading “Random Tuesday chat”

Afternoon walk from Bray

This afternoon David and I had a walk from Bray. We parked near Bray lake which is one of the few places locally that you can park free of charge. It was relatively quiet today. The weather has been weird today. After the hot, hot, hot of yesterday where we stayed outside with friends inContinue reading “Afternoon walk from Bray”

Too hot to blog?! 🥵🥵🥵

Hello my friends. How are you? It’s over 30 degrees C in Windsor today. That’s very hot for us. The Thames Valley is like a cauldron of heat, not that I’m complaining or anything 🤪🤪 So I worked hard in the office today with no A/C and it was a busy and productive day butContinue reading “Too hot to blog?! 🥵🥵🥵”

A change from Bordeaux..

I still have a few more Bordeaux pics, which I’ll show you another time. For now, here are some pretty flowers of Windsor. On Sunday we bought our hanging baskets x 7. I love these. We sometimes plant them up ourselves but this year we bought them ready made to save time and effort. WeContinue reading “A change from Bordeaux..”

The rest of the Bordeaux photos..

Hi. Apart from the delicious food and wine, Bordeaux also has some very beautiful architecture. There are no high rise buildings here, which is very pleasing on the eye. We visited the cathedral which was lovely and free to enter although you could of course make a donation. It was a little noisy inside asContinue reading “The rest of the Bordeaux photos..”

The Windsor Waffle goes to Bordeaux

Bonjour! David and I have just spent an enjoyable 5 nights in Bordeaux, France; our first flight and holiday abroad since before the pandemic started. We’ve had a good time and done far too much eating and drinking. The weather wasn’t as hot and sunny as we’d hoped for. It was 32 degrees C onContinue reading “The Windsor Waffle goes to Bordeaux”
