A quick blog about the Olympics: Tokyo 2020

Hi everyone. How are you all? Enjoying the Olympics? I thought I’d just squeeze in a quick blog tonight while the toad in the hole is cooking in the oven as I’m out for the next couple of nights (first cinema trip since first lockdown 2020 and 2nd tennis game in 15 + years). ThereContinue reading “A quick blog about the Olympics: Tokyo 2020”

The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year

Firstly I’d like to say I really ❤️ my aircon. So lovely. Cool. Refreshing. I’m lying on the bed after a beautiful stroll around The Savill Garden today. It was hot at The Savill Garden, but quite shady along many of the paths. I seem to be going back to this place every month atContinue reading “The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year”

Affordable Luxury

Hi. Do you like my new little wine/cocktail shelf for the bath? Quite decadent methinks. I tried it out last night with my wine glass slotted in and my little bowl of crisps. I was not brave enough to try putting a phone/kindle in the designated slot for this. I’m not one for reading inContinue reading “Affordable Luxury”

The house leek is flowering

Hi there. I have been in a low mood on and off all day, for no particular reason. What a waste of a day off, this has annoyed me that I couldn’t snap out of it. I was cheered up by the sight of our house leek flowering for the first time. We had noContinue reading “The house leek is flowering”

Hydrangeas and Delphiniums

Hello everyone. The hydrangeas are doing very well in our front garden border now. Complete with mushrooms that keep growing next to them, for some reason. We have 2 x white hydrangeas and 1 x blue hydrangea. I think they’ll look really good in a couple of years when they completely fill this space. HereContinue reading “Hydrangeas and Delphiniums”

One day holiday in Windsor

Hi everyone. Look at this blue sky! Windsor is marvellous today. I’ve had the day off work. There has been cycling, swimming, coffee and catching some rays of the sun, photo taking, browsing in the shops, lunch with friends and relaxing at home. Here are some pics from my stunning home town today. I likeContinue reading “One day holiday in Windsor”

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!”

Another walk in the rain..

Hi. How are you all? For no particular reason I’ve come over a bit tired this afternoon, so I’ll keep this brief. I still have ironing to do and roast chicken to cook. We are not just fair weather walkers, we walk in the rain too, as we did this afternoon at Windsor Home Park.Continue reading “Another walk in the rain..”

News of the Day: Swimming, pubs, food

Hi everyone. Happy Wednesday. Today I went swimming for the first time in about 2 years. It was lovely. I always used to swim once a week at our local pool, then I stopped going even before the pandemic as the pool became overcrowded and quite frankly, dangerous. The laned swimming became squashed into suchContinue reading “News of the Day: Swimming, pubs, food”

What’s for dinner?

I have to say I’ve been eating and drinking rather well recently, both outside at pubs and restaurants and at home. Maybe a bit too well 🤔I’ll share with you a few of the highlights. “What’s for lovely dinner?” my husband asks me every day around tea time. He usually is genuinely excited by theContinue reading “What’s for dinner?”
