Yesterday in Richmond

Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵

Hi. Sometimes hot and sunny weather is very pleasant, but sometimes like today for me, it just gets a bit too much. The grass is parched and yellow everywhere you look. We really need rain. 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”

Bonjour! David and I have just spent an enjoyable 5 nights in Bordeaux, France; our first flight and holiday abroad since before the pandemic started.

Life after Covid

Hello. I think I’m post Covid now. Going to test tomorrow just to make sure, although my boss has told me I’m paranoid and shouldn’t be testing any more. I just don’t want to infect anyone. As far as I know I haven’t so far. David and I are both feeling better now, I wouldn’tContinue reading “Life after Covid”
