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”

Happy Weekend

Hi everyone. Do you like these big tyres? I took this arty farty shot this afternoon at Windsor Home Park. It’s quite cold in Windsor at the moment. I had my hat pulled down right over my ears. Everything was looking a bit January bleak and not very pretty or photogenic. I only took aContinue reading “Happy Weekend”

Bird flu and other thoughts of the day

Hi. How are you all? I had a visit from the local council today to ask if I am keeping any birds? The answer is no, by the way. I think the foxes would probably get them anyway. I thought maybe they were here about the rats.. David and his guitar student saw a massiveContinue reading “Bird flu and other thoughts of the day”

Another sunny day in Windsor, a bit ill and off work

Hi folks. This was the blue sky in Windsor yesterday, and we’ve had the same today. It’s cold but bright and sunny. I think I’ve got a cold. Negative lateral flow tests. My throat has been very sore and my ears inflamed. I have a very croaky voice. I was going to go to workContinue reading “Another sunny day in Windsor, a bit ill and off work”

Finding healthy foods you actually like

Hi. I’m a great believer in finding exercise that you enjoy doing, so that you can stick to it and it doesn’t feel like a chore. For me that means walking, swimming, gentle cycling (to the pub!) and yoga. Occasionally I play non serious tennis (followed by a little après tennis 😊). Similarly I thinkContinue reading “Finding healthy foods you actually like”

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”

A muddy walk around Stubbings (near Maidenhead) after a busy weekend out

Hi everyone. Just waking up after my afternoon nap! This is what weekends are for. Friday night we had a meal out at the Gurkha Royale (Nepalese) with Mark, which was very nice. Yesterday we headed into London to see Pantoland at The Palladium in London. Such a beautiful theatre, I love it there. WeContinue reading “A muddy walk around Stubbings (near Maidenhead) after a busy weekend out”

Sunday’s blog.. the colour orange

Hi. These gorgeous vibrant berries caught my eye the other day walking around the block. I’m loving all the autumn oranges around in nature at the moment. It’s been a busy but fun weekend. We went to a new restaurant in Windsor last night. It’s called Plate at No.6 and I thought it was superb.Continue reading “Sunday’s blog.. the colour orange”

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”
