Flowers + the kitchen refurb begins

Hi. How are you? I’m just killing some time while the plasterer does our kitchen ceiling. Have you noticed that whenever you say the word plasterer, someone says “oh, that’s a very skilled job?” I’m sure it is, but it’s a bit like when you mention a swan and someone invariably says “a swan couldContinue reading “Flowers + the kitchen refurb begins”

Pumpkins, Foxes, Twinkletoes and Trees…

Hi everyone. Do you like my pumpkins 🎃? I grew them myself. I know they’re supposed to be orange. I’ve now brought them into the house as apparently that will help them to turn orange. They are clean, warm and cosy next to the kitchen window for sunlight. I was planning on making curry andContinue reading “Pumpkins, Foxes, Twinkletoes and Trees…”

Last stop = Ely

This is Part 3 of our recent staycation in the UK. We stayed 1 night in Ely on a barge hotel. Ely is a beautiful place (about 15 miles from Cambridge) dominated by its very old and interesting cathedral. Thanks to Tina for recommending Ely as I was originally looking at Bury St Edmunds orContinue reading “Last stop = Ely”

Cambridge, Cromer and Ely (part 2)

Last week David and I were on our little break away in Cambridge, Cromer and then Ely. It seems an age away since I’ve been back at work for a week. Anyway, let me update you on some of the pics before I succumb to an afternoon nap, subject to noise from my resident guitarist.Continue reading “Cambridge, Cromer and Ely (part 2)”

“No time to die”/ or blog…

Hi. It seems difficult to find the time to blog today. This evening I went to see the new Bond film “No time to die”; the last one with Daniel Craig. I enjoyed this film.. gadgets, car chases, snazzy cars and planes, sexy ladies, martini shaken not stirred and a tuxedo, of course. I doContinue reading ““No time to die”/ or blog…”

Trip to Cambridge, Cromer and Ely (Part 1)

Hi. I’m back! David and I have had a very enjoyable 5 nights away in the UK. First stop was Cambridge for 1 night. We stayed in a B & B about 15 minutes’ walk from the centre of town. We were excited to be in Cambridge again as my clever niece is just startingContinue reading “Trip to Cambridge, Cromer and Ely (Part 1)”

The busyness continues…

Life is busy but good for me at the moment. How are you? This week as well as working every day I went out several times. Firstly I went to book club at The Swan pub on Tuesday night. There were only 3 of us this time (2 ladies and 1 man) but we hadContinue reading “The busyness continues…”

Busy week!

Hi. This is a super quick blog post to say I’m having a very busy week both at work and in my social life, but I am thinking of you. Of course! This was our quick and tasty dinner tonight. Chicken breast pieces cooked in this curry sauce with basmati rice. We’ve had Holy CowContinue reading “Busy week!”

Meals of the week

Hi guys. I have not had pizza this week. David doesn’t really like pizza. What’s not to like? I don’t know. (He does, however, like cheese on toast 🤔…. pretty much the same thing I think). So, I’ll show you instead what we have been eating this week. The cooking has been all pretty quickContinue reading “Meals of the week”
