Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale

Hi. Just waiting for the roast chicken to finish roasting in the oven. Yesterday David and I went for a walk in the Home Park in Windsor. David noticed the nice reflection of this house boat in the River Thames. I’m quite pleased with this photo I took. It seems well balanced and I likeContinue reading “Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale”

Life is a walk in the park..

Well, yesterday morning it was, anyway. I had a lovely cappuccino, carrot cake and chat with my friend at the Imperial Park café in Windsor. The sun had kindly put his hat on which was very welcome. Gorgeous views. A few little dogs but no big scary ones. We walked several laps of the parkContinue reading “Life is a walk in the park..”

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”

Fulham Palace

Hi. How are you all? I’m not sure my last post had uploaded properly so I’ve just hit the publish button on “Autumn Leaves” again so you may or may not get 2 new posts today. Yesterday I visited Fulham Palace with my old school friend Sarah. We’d been meaning to go there since lockdownContinue reading “Fulham Palace”

The influx of visitors to pay their respects to our Queen. There are people holding flowers here and there, on their way to The Long Walk, others looking lostContinue reading “Windsor is getting busy”

Banks etc

Hello. My life seems to revolve around many different banks at the moment, helping my parents with the Power of Attorney. The process is both frustrating and time consuming and the continuing inefficiencies of Barclays left me in tears last night. After pub and sleep it was off to Santander in Maidenhead this morning. SantanderContinue reading “Banks etc”

Tuesday’s Waffle

Hi. I nearly called this “Wednesday’s Waffle” but it appears to be only Tuesday.. so there we go, silly me! I was sitting in my Mum’s care home lounge the other day where the main topic of conversation amongst the residents was what day of the week it was. Someone asked “What day is itContinue reading “Tuesday’s Waffle”

Happy Sunday

Hello. Hope you’re all well. It’s not been a bad day for us today. This morning we collected my Dad from the care home and took him back home after his 2 weeks’ respite care. Not sure how he is going to get on home alone but time will tell. This was my Friday nightContinue reading “Happy Sunday”

The colour of hydrangeas

So the crisis must have passed a little with my family situation, as I’m now noticing the colour of hydrangeas. This is one of our blue hydrangeas 🤔?!? David says it will turn blue after it is pink. We shall see… apparently it depends on the alkalinity of the soil. I never knew that before.Continue reading “The colour of hydrangeas”
