Waffle pause…

Hello. Just a quick post to let all you lovely souls know I’m going off grid for a little while.. Well, not really off grid (don’t be silly!?) as I’ll still have my phone and my iPad nearby, but I will be pausing The Waffle until the end of September/beginning of October. There’s a lotContinue reading “Waffle pause…”

Windsor is getting busy

Goodbye Queen, Hello King

We can’t remember when it last rained. David can’t remember when he last wore trousers instead of shorts. I can’tContinue reading “Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵”

Tuesday’s Waffle

Hi. I nearly called this “Wednesday’s Waffle” but it appears to be only Tuesday.. so there we go, silly me! I was sitting in my Mum’s care home lounge the other day where the main topic of conversation amongst the residents was what day of the week it was. Someone asked “What day is itContinue reading “Tuesday’s Waffle”
