A grey weekend in Windsor

There have been no pretty skies or clouds this weekend. I don’t think we have even glimpsed the sun. As David and I sat across the table from each other at lunchtime I remarked that I could hardly see him across the table through the gloomy light. An exaggeration, of course, but the light hasContinue reading “A grey weekend in Windsor”

Trees without leaves

Hello. It occurs to me today that, in my humble opinion, trees without leaves are every bit as beautiful as those with autumn colour. What do you think? (And did you spot the bird at the top of this one? Lots of birds sitting in trees today). These were all taken this afternoon on myContinue reading “Trees without leaves”

Clewer Park, unidentified lunch and a little Covid update

Hello everyone. I do hope you’re well. Let’s start with the Covid update. The day after I heard that one of my friends had died from Coronavirus, I learned that another friend is currently in hospital on oxygen with it. I have decided that I really hate this virus, this is getting personal now. “****Continue reading “Clewer Park, unidentified lunch and a little Covid update”

Roses of Dedworth, Wildmoor Heath and Christmas cake planning

Hello Waffle friends. It is nearly the end of October, can you believe it?? It is also Tuesday whereas for me it feels like Wednesday. It’s going to be a long week. For those lovely people who noticed I have been struggling a bit recently, thank you my friends xxx. This week is still challengingContinue reading “Roses of Dedworth, Wildmoor Heath and Christmas cake planning”

Windsor Great Park (again!)

I admit this has not been the best of weekends. It was not terrible but I felt a bit depressed. I think it was probably a reaction to the week I had and the pressured return to work after my holiday. Hopefully this week will be better. So for today, I’ll show you a fewContinue reading “Windsor Great Park (again!)”

Glorious Cliveden (part 2)

Good evening. As the beautiful light streams through these golden gates at Cliveden, I want to finish showing you the photos from our great afternoon out there on Thursday. I’ve got to make this a really good post tonight, as myself and The Waffle will be undergoing a little pause this week, so there willContinue reading “Glorious Cliveden (part 2)”

Where do all the masks go?

I don’t mean the masks that end up as litter, in the street or in our oceans, I mean where do my masks go? The ones I know are in my house somewhere? Same place as the missing socks I presume? The missing sock monster has branched out into masks. I know I’ve purchased atContinue reading “Where do all the masks go?”

Going out again

Last night we had dinner in the garden of The Greene Oak, our local pub restaurant. We could walk there so no danger of picking up the virus in a taxi. It’s also ideal in that there is a big garden you can access directly from the outside, without having to go through the pub.Continue reading “Going out again”

Day trip to Winkworth Arboretum and duck curry

Hello. As my ear drums and my brain fight for a bit of space competing with the rock guitar practice going on upstairs, I’ll tell you about my day. This morning we did a few jobs at home. I did my parents’ online food shopping and gave David a hair cut. He now chooses forContinue reading “Day trip to Winkworth Arboretum and duck curry”
