It’s Birthday Season

Hi. In my family we have a lot of April birthdays. My Mum’s was yesterday, my niece is on Monday and then I’m next Saturday. I like sharing my birthday proximity with my close relatives. My sister does not enjoy it so much and has been known to say it is like another Christmas forContinue reading “It’s Birthday Season”

Leftover Easter eggs?!?

There was a link on the BBC news website to a recipe for rocky road made with your leftover Easter eggs. Leftover Easter eggs?! What a ridiculous suggestion. We may not have finished these beauties yet together with some other chocolate treats ongoing in our house, but I’m confident that we will. It will beContinue reading “Leftover Easter eggs?!?”

The tulips are out

Hi, these aren’t in my garden, but I spotted them on our walk today. Nice, aren’t they? These are stunning too. One of the highlights of yesterday’s walk with my friend Erica was this solitary daffodil in Clewer Park. Sometimes less is more. This one daffodil caught our eye, standing proud and full of cheekyContinue reading “The tulips are out”

When is an Easter egg not an Easter egg?

Hi guys. I do hope this blog post is going to look OK. Behind the scenes WordPress seem to change things on a daily basis and the technical process of writing the blog is different every time. It’s getting pretty frustrating. Aaaaaarrrgggghhh! Well, what was I saying? Oh yes, about Easter eggs. It seems thatContinue reading “When is an Easter egg not an Easter egg?”

Happy Saturday

Hello and Happy Saturday. It’s been a reasonable Saturday so far. I’ve had a slight headache all day. Hope you are doing well. This afternoon we went for a walk near Boveney lock. Here are a few pics. I don’t think this boat will be going anywhere soon! Lovely cream daffodils in front of theContinue reading “Happy Saturday”

Tidy kitchen cupboards

Hi everyone. I’ve had a good tidy up of all my kitchen food cupboards today. I’ve thrown quite a bit away and wiped down the inside of all the cupboards. More importantly, I now know exactly what I’ve got in stock, so I’m less likely to buy duplicates by mistake. I can’t say I’ve thrownContinue reading “Tidy kitchen cupboards”

A lazy Saturday blog with lots of blossom

Hello. I’m really blossoming now 😂😂. It’s been quite a lazy day for me today. This afternoon we went around the block for a quick walk before tea. There is blossom EVERYWHERE my friends. Don’t ask me what sort any of it is, I think some of it is hawthorn. Through the fence at WindsorContinue reading “A lazy Saturday blog with lots of blossom”

The freshness of Spring blossom

Hi. How are you all doing? I’m loving the Spring blossom at the moment. So gorgeous. I spotted some more of it today. Also a magnolia tree, on its way. Here are some other little Spring bits I haven’t shared with you yet. There are a few hyacinths out now. The pink one above isContinue reading “The freshness of Spring blossom”

A very muddy walk around Holyport

This, honestly, was one of the easiest paths this afternoon. It got really muddy after this. We were clinging on to branches at the sides of the path with brambles clawing at our jackets whilst trying to avoid getting sucked into the vortex of thick, gloopy mud below. Phew! We made it. For those ofContinue reading “A very muddy walk around Holyport”

Quick rainy Wednesday blog

Hi, this was our project for the morning. We’ve got new grass seed on this patch of our front lawn, and David noticed that the greedy pigeons were out gobbling it all up. So we went to the garden centre (Oak Tree garden centre near Winkfield) and bought some netting and bamboo poles, to makeContinue reading “Quick rainy Wednesday blog”
