Everything including the kitchen sink…

So here you are, my new kitchen sink. You get everything on The Waffle including the kitchen sink. It’s going to look better with the new quartz worktop. That’s being measured up tomorrow and being installed on 21 December I believe. We also got a new induction hob installed today. I have absolutely no ideaContinue reading “Everything including the kitchen sink…”

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☃️🤩”

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)”

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!”

Pumpkin progress, trip to Reading and walk in Boveney

Well, the pumpkins are turning orange albeit very slowly. I think we’ll be having Halloween at mid to end of November at this rate 🤣. They seem to go orange from the bottom up, interesting stuff. Apart from watching pumpkins turn orange, we’ve been having a relaxing weekend at home. Yesterday we had a tripContinue reading “Pumpkin progress, trip to Reading and walk in Boveney”

The “C” word (not Covid)… and maybe a little bit of moaning from a middle aged woman..

Hi. I am quite cross my friends. I walked up to Timpson’s to get my new watch battery just now. The shop closes at 4.00 pm on Sunday, supposedly, and I arrived at 3.05 pm. The bloke (who was busy hoovering his very small portacabin) was rude and refused to serve me as he preferredContinue reading “The “C” word (not Covid)… and maybe a little bit of moaning from a middle aged woman..”

Mistletoe Thursday

Hello everyone. It’s been a good day. Do you like my mistletoe? I found loads of it on a tree at eye level. Usually it is in bundles right up at the top. I’m in a good and Christmassy mood. All shopping done online has turned up, no hassle. I just have a bit ofContinue reading “Mistletoe Thursday”

Anyone lost a pair of shoes?

I saw these shoes at lunchtime on my walk. I guess it’s a student prank as it was near the College, although I’m not sure the students are back yet. Made me look and smile, not what I expected to see up there. For regular Waffle readers who read my last post, you will beContinue reading “Anyone lost a pair of shoes?”
