Pumpkins, Foxes, Twinkletoes and Trees…

Hi everyone. Do you like my pumpkins 🎃? I grew them myself. I know they’re supposed to be orange. I’ve now brought them into the house as apparently that will help them to turn orange. They are clean, warm and cosy next to the kitchen window for sunlight. I was planning on making curry andContinue reading “Pumpkins, Foxes, Twinkletoes and Trees…”

Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻

So my colleague Tina was right when she said “Isn’t 1 Sept too early to start your autumn capsule wardrobe, Gail? It might be really hot at the beginning of September?” ….. “No, I’ll just keep out a couple of short sleeved tops and it’ll be fine”.

Brimstone moth and other important matters

Hello world. This lovely Brimstone moth visited our house recently. It was on the floor downstairs, then upstairs on a window ledge and then on the stairs’ carpet for a couple of days. We were careful not to step on him and I called him “Mr Brimstone” which hopefully he found quite respectful! He hasContinue reading “Brimstone moth and other important matters”

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.

Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River

Hi. David and I usually just call this walk “the birds” as there are some bird hides along the walk and usually lots of birds to see. Today we saw a few Canada geese, one cormorant, one grebe, we heard some chirping from an unknown species in the rushes, but didn’t spot as many birdsContinue reading “Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River”
