Purple berries

Hi. Aren’t these amazing? I spotted these soon after the pink berries. Even better in my opinion. I also found some great holly, very festive. Ho Ho Ho. 🎅🏻 I’m pleased to report I am feeling so much better than last weekend. I have a cold but I’m not in a mental slump any more.Continue reading “Purple berries”

Pink berries

Hi. I enjoyed seeing these pink berries on my walk today. I also saw these white ones which were OK but not as nice as the pink ones. Then I saw these which I think are little flower buds rather than berries. It’s amazing how much is still in flower past the middle of NovemberContinue reading “Pink berries”

Back Trak

So this was last night, bonfire night. David’s band, Back Trak, played outside at The Swan pub in Clewer, Windsor. It was a great night. Lots of people. Lots of dancing. Good fun. This is what a happy retirement looks like for David, away from the corporate world he used to inhabit. He also teachesContinue reading “Back Trak”

Platinum Jubilee weekend

Hello everyone. We are on our 4 day bank holiday weekend in the UK. Thursday morning I woke up and felt terrible. I had a migraine. I was stressed about all the work I hadn’t caught up on in the office since coming back from holiday and about my parents. I was very grumpy withContinue reading “Platinum Jubilee weekend”

Last day of resting

Hi. How are you? Unfortunately I’m still positive. I think I’ll stop even mentioning it until I’m negative, it’s getting very boring. Apparently some people are positive for 90 days. David is out and about doing his normal activities again, although still a little symptomatic. Yesterday he bought a new jacket. David hardly ever buysContinue reading “Last day of resting”

Greetings from The House of Covid

Howdi. David is Covid positive for the first time ☹️. I am not.. so far… we are trying to isolate away from each other in the house. Last night I put fresh sheets onto the spare bed and moved into there. I had quite a good sleep until I woke up at 5.30 am andContinue reading “Greetings from The House of Covid”

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”

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..”

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”
