Thoughts on Covid – to mask or not to mask

Hi everyone. I have good news 😎. I am very happy to say I was WRONG! On 25 July I posted on The Waffle that we had 636 cases of Covid within the past 7 days in Windsor and Maidenhead. I was all gloom and doom as I fully expected the numbers to keep onContinue reading “Thoughts on Covid – to mask or not to mask”

Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River

Hi. David and I usually just call this walk “the birds” as there are some bird hides along the walk and usually lots of birds to see. Today we saw a few Canada geese, one cormorant, one grebe, we heard some chirping from an unknown species in the rushes, but didn’t spot as many birdsContinue reading “Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River”

A quick blog about the Olympics: Tokyo 2020

Hi everyone. How are you all? Enjoying the Olympics? I thought I’d just squeeze in a quick blog tonight while the toad in the hole is cooking in the oven as I’m out for the next couple of nights (first cinema trip since first lockdown 2020 and 2nd tennis game in 15 + years). ThereContinue reading “A quick blog about the Olympics: Tokyo 2020”

The “C” word (not Covid)… and maybe a little bit of moaning from a middle aged woman..

Hi. I am quite cross my friends. I walked up to Timpson’s to get my new watch battery just now. The shop closes at 4.00 pm on Sunday, supposedly, and I arrived at 3.05 pm. The bloke (who was busy hoovering his very small portacabin) was rude and refused to serve me as he preferredContinue reading “The “C” word (not Covid)… and maybe a little bit of moaning from a middle aged woman..”

The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year

Firstly I’d like to say I really ❤️ my aircon. So lovely. Cool. Refreshing. I’m lying on the bed after a beautiful stroll around The Savill Garden today. It was hot at The Savill Garden, but quite shady along many of the paths. I seem to be going back to this place every month atContinue reading “The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year”

It’s hot 🥵!

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 restaurantContinue reading “It’s hot 🥵!”

Mmmmm…. 🤔

Hi. How are you? This arrangement of paving and greenery caught my eye yesterday lunchtime outside Holy Trinity Church, Windsor. An interesting jigsaw. Here are a few more bits… I have titled this blog post “Mmmmm….🤔” as, unusually, I don’t really know what to say to you today. I can usually look through my photos,Continue reading “Mmmmm…. 🤔”

Flowers, tennis, maybe a little football?

Hi everyone. It’s a very sporty day here in the UK with the Wimbledon Men’s singles final and then the Euro 2020 football final at Wembley later on. I’ll start off by showing you the pretty flowers in my garden and around our local estate. The stunning hydrangeas. Love these. Lavender, loved by the bees.Continue reading “Flowers, tennis, maybe a little football?”

Smoky sausage chilli (and tennis)

This was last night’s dinner. Very yummy. You’ll have to bear with me as I am simultaneously blogging and watching Roger Federer. I ❤️Roger Federer. He’s amazing. The Polish guy who’s playing him, Hurkacz, is looking pretty good too. Anyway, back to the sausage chilli. It had black beans in it, and basically tasted likeContinue reading “Smoky sausage chilli (and tennis)”

Flowers, trees and food (TWW staples)

An interesting choice of window box flowers, these tall lilies, don’t you think? They made me stop and smile on my lunchtime walk this week. Here are some other pretty flowers..firstly our beautiful blue hydrangeas out the front. They are growing FAST! Some pretty specimens around our local estate. I’m loving this rich, deep purple.Continue reading “Flowers, trees and food (TWW staples)”
