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”

It’s a small world

Like it or not, we live in a global society. What one human being chooses to eat on the other side of the world, or how they interact with nature, changes the whole planet. The Covid 19 pandemic has given every country, government and human being in the world THE SAME PROBLEM. This is quiteContinue reading “It’s a small world”

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”

You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!

Hello my friends. The pumpkins are still partially green. We decided not to carve them yet. Halloween will be late in our house. I’ve never carved a pumpkin lantern before, as far as I remember. I want it to be an orange pumpkin, otherwise what’s the point? Did you know pumpkins are actually fruit notContinue reading “You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!”

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…”

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”

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”
