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.

Life is a walk in the park..

Well, yesterday morning it was, anyway. I had a lovely cappuccino, carrot cake and chat with my friend at the Imperial Park café in Windsor. The sun had kindly put his hat on which was very welcome. Gorgeous views. A few little dogs but no big scary ones. We walked several laps of the parkContinue reading “Life is a walk in the park..”

SantanderContinue reading “Banks etc”

Yesterday in Richmond
