Trees without leaves

Hello. It occurs to me today that, in my humble opinion, trees without leaves are every bit as beautiful as those with autumn colour. What do you think? (And did you spot the bird at the top of this one? Lots of birds sitting in trees today). These were all taken this afternoon on myContinue reading “Trees without leaves”

Clewer Park, unidentified lunch and a little Covid update

Hello everyone. I do hope you’re well. Let’s start with the Covid update. The day after I heard that one of my friends had died from Coronavirus, I learned that another friend is currently in hospital on oxygen with it. I have decided that I really hate this virus, this is getting personal now. “****Continue reading “Clewer Park, unidentified lunch and a little Covid update”

Fish Risotto

Hi Wafflers. How are you? I’m feeling quite tired but happy. Last night I cooked this fish risotto. It was really delicious. I would happily gobble up another plateful of it right now, but there’s none left. For tonight we are having an M & S ready made lasagne with petits pois, which is justContinue reading “Fish Risotto”

My goals for the next 5 years

Hello. I was so excited to capture this heart-shaped space of sky in the clouds for you today! After I found you a heart-shaped tree the other day. Love is in the air! It’s a bit of an elongated heart, but a heart none the less. The virus situation has got me doing some thinkingContinue reading “My goals for the next 5 years”

The Windsor Waffle Special Lockdown Q & A: Part Two

Hi there. Hope you’re all doing well. For those of us in the UK I hope you’re staying alert, whatever that means, staying home but also going out for work, from tomorrow seeing more people but not really seeing them, driving to nowhere on your own, not staying, coming home. All a bit contradictory ifContinue reading “The Windsor Waffle Special Lockdown Q & A: Part Two”

The Windsor Waffle Lockdown Special Q & A

Good evening, morning, whatever, my Waffle friends. The more online videos clips of social distancing I see, the more ridiculous it all appears. Like some sort of Monty Python sketch. Nearly as funny as The Ministry of Silly Walks. Why don’t we incorporate silly walks into our daily life too whilst social distancing, just forContinue reading “The Windsor Waffle Lockdown Special Q & A”
