A very Merry Christmas from The Windsor Waffle

So here we are again Wafflers, Christmas Eve. I don’t know about you but I’m all set and ready for Christmas. Today I made the wreath above, just a wreath ring from Hobbycraft with bits from my garden stuck in. There’s no glue involved. It all gets thrown away afterwards and I start again nextContinue reading “A very Merry Christmas from The Windsor Waffle”

Back Trak

Someone asked “What day is itContinue reading “Tuesday’s Waffle”

A routine check up on Tuesday led to admission the next day for urgent vascular surgery… and then when that didn’tContinue reading “A new era for me and my parents”
