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…”

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”

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”

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!”

Busy week!

Hi. This is a super quick blog post to say I’m having a very busy week both at work and in my social life, but I am thinking of you. Of course! This was our quick and tasty dinner tonight. Chicken breast pieces cooked in this curry sauce with basmati rice. We’ve had Holy CowContinue reading “Busy week!”

Meals of the week

Hi guys. I have not had pizza this week. David doesn’t really like pizza. What’s not to like? I don’t know. (He does, however, like cheese on toast 🤔…. pretty much the same thing I think). So, I’ll show you instead what we have been eating this week. The cooking has been all pretty quickContinue reading “Meals of the week”

Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻

So my colleague Tina was right when she said “Isn’t 1 Sept too early to start your autumn capsule wardrobe, Gail? It might be really hot at the beginning of September?” ….. “No, I’ll just keep out a couple of short sleeved tops and it’ll be fine”. Well my dear readers, it is not fine,Continue reading “Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻”

Food news

Hi. I’m feeling a bit shattered after a very busy day in the office. Time to unwind by chatting to you guys about food, one of my favourite subjects as you all know! 😋 I was drawn to this pic of berries as I’m trying to eat more of these recently. It’s not difficult. They’reContinue reading “Food news”

Brimstone moth and other important matters

Hello world. This lovely Brimstone moth visited our house recently. It was on the floor downstairs, then upstairs on a window ledge and then on the stairs’ carpet for a couple of days. We were careful not to step on him and I called him “Mr Brimstone” which hopefully he found quite respectful! He hasContinue reading “Brimstone moth and other important matters”

Saturday afternoon walk around Maidenhead

Hello! For a change this afternoon David and I decided to go for a little stroll around Maidenhead after lunch. Maidenhead is about 6 miles from Windsor. It’s currently a town in transition, with not many of the locals liking the changes. One part of the new development I do like is the canal areaContinue reading “Saturday afternoon walk around Maidenhead”
