Last stop = Ely

This is Part 3 of our recent staycation in the UK. We stayed 1 night in Ely on a barge hotel. Ely is a beautiful place (about 15 miles from Cambridge) dominated by its very old and interesting cathedral. Thanks to Tina for recommending Ely as I was originally looking at Bury St Edmunds orContinue reading “Last stop = Ely”

The busyness continues…

Life is busy but good for me at the moment. How are you? This week as well as working every day I went out several times. Firstly I went to book club at The Swan pub on Tuesday night. There were only 3 of us this time (2 ladies and 1 man) but we hadContinue reading “The busyness continues…”

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”

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”

Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River

Hi. David and I usually just call this walk “the birds” as there are some bird hides along the walk and usually lots of birds to see. Today we saw a few Canada geese, one cormorant, one grebe, we heard some chirping from an unknown species in the rushes, but didn’t spot as many birdsContinue reading “Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River”

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”
