A walk around Bray Lake on Cocktail Saturday

Windsor is busy. There are cars, bicycles, people, dogs, children, everywhere! It is hard to find some space. All the restaurants and bars are now booked up weeks if not months in advance. The virus figures are going down and down (thank goodness) and everyone is out and about in the sunshine. For lunch todayContinue reading “A walk around Bray Lake on Cocktail Saturday”

The tulips are out

Hi, these aren’t in my garden, but I spotted them on our walk today. Nice, aren’t they? These are stunning too. One of the highlights of yesterday’s walk with my friend Erica was this solitary daffodil in Clewer Park. Sometimes less is more. This one daffodil caught our eye, standing proud and full of cheekyContinue reading “The tulips are out”

A picture perfect day in Windsor today

Hello everyone. The sun shone and the sky was blue in Windsor today. I had a relaxing-ish day. I managed an 8 minute walk, yippee! But my ankle is aching a bit now. I think it was the over enthusiastic physio at home this afternoon rather than the walk though. I’m trying not to letContinue reading “A picture perfect day in Windsor today”

New Year’s Eve 2020 style

Well what a strange New Year’s Eve to end such a strange and challenging year. This time last year I’d just had my hair done and was getting ready to go out to our local Nepalese restaurant, Gurkha Royale, with friends. This year we decided we couldn’t even be bothered with a takeaway, as itContinue reading “New Year’s Eve 2020 style”

Fish Risotto

Hi Wafflers. How are you? I’m feeling quite tired but happy. Last night I cooked this fish risotto. It was really delicious. I would happily gobble up another plateful of it right now, but there’s none left. For tonight we are having an M & S ready made lasagne with petits pois, which is justContinue reading “Fish Risotto”

Very quick blog!

Hi, I’m just checking in after an extremely busy day at work, then lovely relaxing pub and dinner with friends. I’m a bit worn out now. Just having coffee and a bit of this aero caramel chocolate. I’m not a big fan of this, I’d rather have just normal flavoured chocolate. But it’s chocolate youContinue reading “Very quick blog!”

A taste of Gary Rhodes

Greetings from my little corner of Windsor to the world! I’m dipping my toe into the waters of one of my newly acquired cookbooks today, Gary Rhodes cookery year “Spring into Summer”. I don’t know much about Gary Rhodes and his food except that a) he died suddenly last year at the age of 59,Continue reading “A taste of Gary Rhodes”

Frustration

Hi. I’ve had a frustrating day today. Not my best in lockdown. I’ll probably keep it quite brief tonight. I spent over an hour trying to log in to work from home this morning and eventually gave up and went into the office. The laptop wanted to do updates, I hate updates. Then it justContinue reading “Frustration”

The Windsor Waffle Special Lockdown Q & A: Part Two

Hi there. Hope you’re all doing well. For those of us in the UK I hope you’re staying alert, whatever that means, staying home but also going out for work, from tomorrow seeing more people but not really seeing them, driving to nowhere on your own, not staying, coming home. All a bit contradictory ifContinue reading “The Windsor Waffle Special Lockdown Q & A: Part Two”

The Windsor Waffle Lockdown Special Q & A

Good evening, morning, whatever, my Waffle friends. The more online videos clips of social distancing I see, the more ridiculous it all appears. Like some sort of Monty Python sketch. Nearly as funny as The Ministry of Silly Walks. Why don’t we incorporate silly walks into our daily life too whilst social distancing, just forContinue reading “The Windsor Waffle Lockdown Special Q & A”
