Yesterday in Richmond

Hello everyone. 5 days with no Waffle. What is the world coming to? It’s been very busy with my parents and work. I went to see my Mum today.

Tuesday’s Waffle

Hi. I nearly called this “Wednesday’s Waffle” but it appears to be only Tuesday.. so there we go, silly me!

Hi. How are you all? I’ve been busy doing very grown up things. I don’t mind being a grown up, but then when your parents get old and ill you suddenly have to grow up to a whole new level. You become really responsible, they become dependent on you, and at times it’s quite overwhelming.Continue reading “And relax 🫖🍪….”
