I have a new washing up bowl!

Good evening, morning etc wherever you may be. I bring exciting news…….I have a posh new washing up bowl and I love it! The full details of it are here. It’s expensive, but I didn’t pay quite this much, as if you sign up to the elephant box newsletter you can get a small discount.Continue reading “I have a new washing up bowl!”

Hydrangeas and Delphiniums

Hello everyone. The hydrangeas are doing very well in our front garden border now. Complete with mushrooms that keep growing next to them, for some reason. We have 2 x white hydrangeas and 1 x blue hydrangea. I think they’ll look really good in a couple of years when they completely fill this space. HereContinue reading “Hydrangeas and Delphiniums”

A very muddy walk around Holyport

This, honestly, was one of the easiest paths this afternoon. It got really muddy after this. We were clinging on to branches at the sides of the path with brambles clawing at our jackets whilst trying to avoid getting sucked into the vortex of thick, gloopy mud below. Phew! We made it. For those ofContinue reading “A very muddy walk around Holyport”

My favourite daffodil, 36th February!

Hello folks. Let me start by explaining 36th February… well, actually, I have no explanation. David woke up on Friday morning and his bedside clock was like this…(excuse the blurry photo)..

This is David’s little autumnal arrangement. We collected the acorns on our walk in Windsor Great Park yesterday. I love how smooth the big, green acorns feel and how tidily they sit in their little cups. Here are some other views from our walk. I never tire of this stroll. What a majestic oak! SweetContinue reading “Acorns”

Home office revamp and the first sweet pea flower

Before I show you my home office before and after pictures, here is my first sweet pea flower. So exciting! I don’t know if all the flowers will be purple. I think they are mixed colours, but time will tell… The sunflowers have yet to flower, but one looks almost ready to bloom and isContinue reading “Home office revamp and the first sweet pea flower”

Out for a walk

Hello and Happy Sunday to you all. Have you had a nice weekend? Been out to the pub on “Super Saturday” in the UK? Got your hair cut yet? For me, I’ve decided to take it slowly. I don’t feel like rushing back to pubs, restaurants or shops. I will probably get my hair cutContinue reading “Out for a walk”

Bacon v. Sausages (and some other waffling)

Hi everybody. It was a strange feeling not blogging yesterday after 56 consecutive days of posts. I’m back, rejuvenated and raring to go! Spoiler alert – this post is not suitable for vegetarians. Or even meat eaters of a delicate disposition. So firstly, do you prefer bacon or sausages? I really like both. Overall IContinue reading “Bacon v. Sausages (and some other waffling)”
