What’s for dinner?

I have to say I’ve been eating and drinking rather well recently, both outside at pubs and restaurants and at home. Maybe a bit too well 🤔I’ll share with you a few of the highlights. “What’s for lovely dinner?” my husband asks me every day around tea time. He usually is genuinely excited by theContinue reading “What’s for dinner?”

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”

My funky new chair

It’s been so long I’ve forgotten how to blog – only joking! I’ve had a brilliant week wining and dining all over Windsor. I’ve had my nails and my hair done, been to the library for the first time in over a year, been cycling, walking and thoroughly celebrated my birthday with David and withContinue reading “My funky new chair”

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”

Ho Ho Ho-me made Grand Marnier

Hi Wafflers. This weekend has been all about the second stage of the Grand Marnier making. You may remember a month ago I started this project and the jar has been sitting in the bottom of my wardrobe, with me shaking it around a bit from time to time. This is how it looked likeContinue reading “Ho Ho Ho-me made Grand Marnier”

The Starship Enterprise (and other home crafts)

David has now completed his Starship Enterprise model. It turned out very nicely, don’t you think? So perfectly glued and painted. He can have so much patience when making something precise (but mostly in life has so very little!). My thanks to Julie, David’s sister, for buying this for him as a) he really enjoyedContinue reading “The Starship Enterprise (and other home crafts)”

Food glorious food

Greetings. I’ve had the day off work so today has been all about food and sunshine and I feel truly satisfied with that. I started off this morning with porridge in the garden. I like this sort and it’s really easy to do in the microwave. I have no idea what Acai is, but I’mContinue reading “Food glorious food”
