Up at the O2 London – Wow!

Here I am smiling at the top. We made it! We got the cable car on the way home.Continue reading “Up at the O2 London – Wow!”

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”. Well my dear readers, it is not fine,Continue reading “Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻”

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”

One day holiday in Windsor

Hi everyone. Look at this blue sky! Windsor is marvellous today. I’ve had the day off work. There has been cycling, swimming, coffee and catching some rays of the sun, photo taking, browsing in the shops, lunch with friends and relaxing at home. Here are some pics from my stunning home town today. I likeContinue reading “One day holiday in Windsor”

Pretty stuff in Windsor

Hi. There’s a lot of pretty stuff going on in Windsor at the moment. The weather has been quite disappointing for May, but the signs of beautiful Spring are all around. Don’t you just love this purple? Here are some more that caught my eye recently… At The Savill Garden a couple of weeks ago..Continue reading “Pretty stuff in Windsor”

My funky new chair

It’s been so long I’ve forgotten how to blog – only joking! I’ve had a brilliant week wining and dining all over Windsor. I’ve had my nails and my hair done, been to the library for the first time in over a year, been cycling, walking and thoroughly celebrated my birthday with David and withContinue reading “My funky new chair”

Quick rainy Wednesday blog

Hi, this was our project for the morning. We’ve got new grass seed on this patch of our front lawn, and David noticed that the greedy pigeons were out gobbling it all up. So we went to the garden centre (Oak Tree garden centre near Winkfield) and bought some netting and bamboo poles, to makeContinue reading “Quick rainy Wednesday blog”

Inside the Royal Station shopping concourse.Continue reading “Greetings from Windsor”

Going out out

So, in the words of Micky Flanagan, last night we went out out. Not just out, but proper out out. We went out into Windsor town centre on a Saturday night, with some mitigations of course. Firstly we decided to cycle into town as we both wanted to drink and don’t feel comfortable going backContinue reading “Going out out”

Long Island Iced Tea and a load of other rubbish

Greetings. Last night was cocktail night and I made Long Island Iced Tea, as above, for the first time. They were really good, extremely alcoholic. The ingredients containing five, yes five, different spirits, really shouldn’t go together at all, but they do. This drink has absolutely nothing to do with tea other than the factContinue reading “Long Island Iced Tea and a load of other rubbish”
