May tour of The Waffle garden

Hi guys. While I’m waiting for my garden photos to download, let’s talk about food, for a change! A couple of nights ago I made this chicken laksa. Highly recommended.

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).. Friday 36th February?! How weird is that? My clock meanwhile was 10 days’ behind showing 26th February. Oh well, panic over, the clock hasContinue reading “My favourite daffodil, 36th February!”

So whose round is it anyway?

Hi there. I am getting very excited about coming out of lockdown. More specifically I am getting super excited about going to a pub garden for my birthday in April. I have taken the week off work, week beginning 12 April, and plan to visit a different pub or restaurant outside each day in WindsorContinue reading “So whose round is it anyway?”
