Time for a little rest

I never suffer from writer’s block with the blog, as I consider this simply chatting to my friends, so there’s always something to say and to update you all on. However, for the last couple of posts I’ve turned up at the page aka the iPad mini, feeling a bit brain dead, like I’m alreadyContinue reading “Time for a little rest”

A few more patterns of Windsor

Hi guys. I’ve been out and about around Windsor again. Well, only a little walk, we are in Tier 4 you know. Today was a bit colder. Without snow, frost or ice, I can’t convey the sense of cold on the streets of Windsor, you’ll have to imagine it. The sky was cold, cloudy, paleContinue reading “A few more patterns of Windsor”

Happy Twixmas!

Hi, we’re working our way through the Christmas pudding, cold or hot, it’s delicious. The cake is not so good this year, it seems a bit undercooked in the middle. I’ve never done that before. I think I’m going to blame it on the pandemic. This Twixmas period is usually one of my favourite timesContinue reading “Happy Twixmas!”
