From The Waffle bookshelves – part 1

Hi. How are you? I’m tired. Work is crazy busy since my return to the office after Covid, then a short week due to Easter and my day’s leave for the pottery workshop – more about that another time. I seem to have got a bit carried away with the amount of books I’m tryingContinue reading “From The Waffle bookshelves – part 1”

Mad March Hares

Hello there. I haven’t actually seen any mad March hares recently, I just fancied saying it. I think my sister may have mentioned it first. I’m quite fond of hares. They seem lucky to me, but who knows. I’m done with Fit February. Good riddance January and February. I’ve never wanted to get through thoseContinue reading “Mad March Hares”

Trip to Staines on the train

Hello my friends. I’ve had quite a nice day. It was a “me” day when I did things I wanted to do. I’ve been worrying quite a lot about other people in my life recently so decided to focus on myself today. This morning I made beef and anchovy stew and it’s been cooking inContinue reading “Trip to Staines on the train”

2021 – the year that was

Hi. Happy New Year’s Eve. I’m just looking back on my photos from this year, to remind myself of the highs and lows. This time last year I was enjoying a walk to Budgen’s supermarket to buy our New Year’s Eve ready meal. I looked forward to the outing for quite a few days, asContinue reading “2021 – the year that was”

1st December… hurtling towards Christmas☃️🤩

I love this snowman and friends display in the front porch of one of my neighbours. It’s there every year. The house belongs to a very nice lady who used to get on the bus with me sometimes, I forget her name. Her sister used to get on the bus at the top of theContinue reading “1st December… hurtling towards Christmas☃️🤩”

It’s reely good!

Hi. Do you like our new hose reel? It’s reely good 🤣. We bought this with some Amazon vouchers we’ve had for ages. It has replaced our old hose reel. Here is the before picture: Luckily David is good at DIY, as I am not, and he put the new one on the wall today.Continue reading “It’s reely good!”

The rhubarb is coming!

I’ve just had a saunter around the estate, well more of a hobble, but I am walking a little better this afternoon. At last! I still don’t think I’ll be up to going out for a walk for a while. It’s so boring being injured. Enough of my grumpiness! The garden is looking a littleContinue reading “The rhubarb is coming!”

Lockdown no.3

Hi. Greetings from England and indeed the UK’s lockdown no.3. I predicted a long time ago we would have a total of 7 lockdowns in the end. “7??!” I hear you cry, yes 7 my friends. I hope I’m wrong, but we are constantly underestimating this virus and it’s certainly not done with us yet.Continue reading “Lockdown no.3”

Beginning to feel autumnal

As this busy bee makes himself busy on the sunflower in my garden, something has shifted, and I’m not sure I like it. The weather is no longer summer sandal weather. No longer can we enjoy sitting dining al fresco of an evening. There is a shift in the air, and with this change comes,Continue reading “Beginning to feel autumnal”

The Colours of Summer

Hi everyone. I know it’s been a rainy old day today here in the UK, but now the sun is out, all the trees are looking so lush and green, and I’m feeling a bit summery. I’m not really buying clothes now as, quite frankly, I have more than enough already. My aspiration of aContinue reading “The Colours of Summer”
