Flowers + the kitchen refurb begins

Hi. How are you? I’m just killing some time while the plasterer does our kitchen ceiling. Have you noticed that whenever you say the word plasterer, someone says “oh, that’s a very skilled job?” I’m sure it is, but it’s a bit like when you mention a swan and someone invariably says “a swan couldContinue reading “Flowers + the kitchen refurb begins”

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.

Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻

So my colleague Tina was right when she said “Isn’t 1 Sept too early to start your autumn capsule wardrobe, Gail? It might be really hot at the beginning of September?” ….. “No, I’ll just keep out a couple of short sleeved tops and it’ll be fine”.

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”
