My the blog is quiet….(must be watching tennis 🎾)

So, on top of all the usual busyness of my life, there is now Wimbledon. I ❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍😍Wimbledon. Watching Wimbledon is a very time consuming hobby. Loved watching Emma Raducanu. Next time Emma, next time. Currently watching Cameron Norrie whilst blogging. He’s doing very well.. 1 set up and 5 games to 1. Go Norrie! He’sContinue reading “My the blog is quiet….(must be watching tennis 🎾)”

March is flying by…

March has been a whirlwind, don’t you think? It’s really sped by. I’m afraid crafty March has not been very crafty. I have run out of time and it is nearly over. The three craft activities completed have been: 1 Hand hemming to take up my new work brown trousers and wearing them several timesContinue reading “March is flying by…”

2021 – the year that was

Hi. Happy New Year’s Eve. I’m just looking back on my photos from this year, to remind myself of the highs and lows. This time last year I was enjoying a walk to Budgen’s supermarket to buy our New Year’s Eve ready meal. I looked forward to the outing for quite a few days, asContinue reading “2021 – the year that was”

Mmmmm…. 🤔

Hi. How are you? This arrangement of paving and greenery caught my eye yesterday lunchtime outside Holy Trinity Church, Windsor. An interesting jigsaw. Here are a few more bits… I have titled this blog post “Mmmmm….🤔” as, unusually, I don’t really know what to say to you today. I can usually look through my photos,Continue reading “Mmmmm…. 🤔”

Lavender, loved by the bees.Continue reading “Flowers, tennis, maybe a little football?”

Smoky sausage chilli (and tennis)

This was last night’s dinner. Very yummy. You’ll have to bear with me as I am simultaneously blogging and watching Roger Federer. I ❤️Roger Federer. He’s amazing. The Polish guy who’s playing him, Hurkacz, is looking pretty good too. Anyway, back to the sausage chilli. It had black beans in it, and basically tasted likeContinue reading “Smoky sausage chilli (and tennis)”

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”

The first daffodils

I’m cheating a little bit here, as these are not my daffodils, mine are still in bud. But I was very excited to spot these on my little walk today outside one of my neighbours’ houses. I also spotted some gorgeous snowdrops. I’m still very much into snowdrops. When I got home I also hadContinue reading “The first daffodils”
