Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale

Hi. Just waiting for the roast chicken to finish roasting in the oven. Yesterday David and I went for a walk in the Home Park in Windsor. David noticed the nice reflection of this house boat in the River Thames. I’m quite pleased with this photo I took. It seems well balanced and I likeContinue reading “Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale”

Trip to Antwerp

Hi. Long time no blog. I’ve been so busy. Last weekend David and I went to Antwerp. We’ve been there several times before as David used to work there and still has ex colleague Belgian friends there (maybe one less since this weekend 🫤).

A little overwhelmed

Hi. Today I’ve felt a little overwhelmed with all the stuff to do for my parents.

Yesterday in Richmond

We can’t remember when it last rained. David can’t remember when he last wore trousers instead of shorts. I can’tContinue reading “Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵”

The lavender is out

Hi. How do you like our lavender? We have 2 big pots of this at the front of the house. We used to plant these pots up with something like begonias every year. The lavenders are less work and more cost effective as they stay in the pots year round. I believe the bees likeContinue reading “The lavender is out”

Too hot to blog?! 🥵🥵🥵

Hello my friends. How are you? It’s over 30 degrees C in Windsor today. That’s very hot for us. The Thames Valley is like a cauldron of heat, not that I’m complaining or anything 🤪🤪 So I worked hard in the office today with no A/C and it was a busy and productive day butContinue reading “Too hot to blog?! 🥵🥵🥵”
