Sunday’s update: cold weather, food, walk, memories…

This wreath made me smile one lunchtime in Windsor this week. Is it a teddy bear or Mickey Mouse?! 🤣 It’s cold 🥶. Cosy in my house but cold outside. Yesterday we went for a walk at Windsor Home Park and the wind was bitter. I wrapped my scarf around my head but it wasContinue reading “Sunday’s update: cold weather, food, walk, memories…”

Pink flowers of the day

Hi. It’s amazing how mild it’s been in October and early November. It’s just starting to get a bit chilly now. There are still flowers in bloom around my local estate. The one above I spotted this afternoon. Here’s another one..looks a bit sad somehow. I also spotted some purples and some white. Don’t youContinue reading “Pink flowers of the day”

Sunday’s blog.. the colour orange

Hi. These gorgeous vibrant berries caught my eye the other day walking around the block. I’m loving all the autumn oranges around in nature at the moment. It’s been a busy but fun weekend. We went to a new restaurant in Windsor last night. It’s called Plate at No.6 and I thought it was superb.Continue reading “Sunday’s blog.. the colour orange”

Pretty reindeer and kitchen progress (or not)

Hi all. Windsor is starting to look quite Christmassy. I like these pretty reindeer I spotted today outside my hairdresser’s. It’s called Icon in Windsor and is run by some lovely Polish ladies. They only take cash even in these post lockdown times, but their prices are reasonable for central Windsor. My locks are gettingContinue reading “Pretty reindeer and kitchen progress (or not)”

The Man in the hat and kitchen cupboards

Hi everyone. Do you like my “Man in a Hat” painting? I did this on Thursday night at Sip and Paint at The George pub in Eton. This was really fun. The tutor gave you a pencil outline for the man on canvas and then told you which colours to mix and roughly where toContinue reading “The Man in the hat and kitchen cupboards”

Beautiful pumpkins, new Aldi supermarket, wonderful trees

Hello. I am quite in love with the pumpkin on the left. I grew it myself. It is so smooth and round, the weight of a new born baby. I have watched it steadily progress from green to orange on my kitchen windowsill over the past few weeks. Maybe we will eat it soon. IContinue reading “Beautiful pumpkins, new Aldi supermarket, wonderful trees”

Rock n’ roll lifestyle

Hi. David’s band played The Swan on Friday night. It was a great crowd and a really fun night. I may have overdone the wine a bit. It can be a bit nerve wracking being a band wife. We know we will have to pick up the pieces emotionally if it doesn’t go well. IContinue reading “Rock n’ roll lifestyle”

A little peaceful waffle

Hi everyone. I’ve not much blog for you tonight, other than just to check in and say “hi” and I hope you’re doing well. I’m fine but several of my friends and family are not at the moment. There is dementia, cancer, Covid, fractures. Lots of problems. Lots going on. So tonight I’ll keep itContinue reading “A little peaceful waffle”

You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!

Hello my friends. The pumpkins are still partially green. We decided not to carve them yet. Halloween will be late in our house. I’ve never carved a pumpkin lantern before, as far as I remember. I want it to be an orange pumpkin, otherwise what’s the point? Did you know pumpkins are actually fruit notContinue reading “You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!”

Halloween is coming…bonfire night…then Christmas!

Hi. Halloween has never been my favourite festival. I definitely prefer bonfire night on 5 November, and of course Christmas and Easter. I’m not a religious person so Christmas and Easter are festivals of family, friends and food. I’m getting into the Halloween spirit nonetheless with my home grown pumpkins 🎃 – looking more orangeContinue reading “Halloween is coming…bonfire night…then Christmas!”
