Mindfulness, money, meals, movies

Hi there. It’s a post full of MMMMMMMs. It should be Monday. 1 Mindfulness I’ve just finished reading this book on mindfulness. This author was recommended by my blog friend Liz from Liz’s onward journey. I found this book to be very peaceful and powerful at the same time. I really enjoyed it. Some ofContinue reading “Mindfulness, money, meals, movies”

The Windsor Waffle goes to Bordeaux

Bonjour! David and I have just spent an enjoyable 5 nights in Bordeaux, France; our first flight and holiday abroad since before the pandemic started. We’ve had a good time and done far too much eating and drinking. The weather wasn’t as hot and sunny as we’d hoped for. It was 32 degrees C onContinue reading “The Windsor Waffle goes to Bordeaux”

Best meals of the week

Yum yum. This week I’ve been quite busy so we’ve had a couple of ready meals: lasagne with carrots and fish cakes with baked beans. But I have also managed to cook 2 home cooked meals and 1 more coming up tonight. My favourite so far was the sausage and squash risotto we had lastContinue reading “Best meals of the week”

April = garden month 😎

Hi. I don’t have Covid any more 😊. I had my first properly negative test on Saturday, just in time for my birthday and Easter Sunday yesterday. It’s been a great weekend. Glorious sunshine. Out and about again without the Covid. We’re still a bit tired on and off, David’s ears are still bothering himContinue reading “April = garden month 😎”

March is flying by…

March has been a whirlwind, don’t you think? It’s really sped by. I’m afraid crafty March has not been very crafty. I have run out of time and it is nearly over. The three craft activities completed have been: 1 Hand hemming to take up my new work brown trousers and wearing them several timesContinue reading “March is flying by…”

Looking back on Covid 2021 to present

This is part 2 of my post looking back at the pandemic so far. So where was I? January 2021. This was a bleak month for me. My father almost died from an abdominal aortic aneurysm and had emergency surgery for the same. A week later partly due to stress and lack of sleep IContinue reading “Looking back on Covid 2021 to present”

Swansea trip – part 2

Hi guys. Here are a few more pics from the weekend. Three Cliffs Bay is so beautiful. You can’t see the beach or the three cliff peaks at the start of the walk so you are rewarded with the lovely view when you’ve done some of the walk and turned the corner. We started atContinue reading “Swansea trip – part 2”

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”
