Banks etc

Hello. My life seems to revolve around many different banks at the moment, helping my parents with the Power of Attorney. The process is both frustrating and time consuming and the continuing inefficiencies of Barclays left me in tears last night. After pub and sleep it was off to Santander in Maidenhead this morning. SantanderContinue reading “Banks etc”

Trees of Crowthorne

Hello. Feeling a bit exhausted. As usual recently… with all that is happening with my parents. The good news is that my Mum is now out of her Covid isolation and she never had any Covid symptoms.

Yesterday in Richmond

Hello everyone. 5 days with no Waffle. What is the world coming to? It’s been very busy with my parents and work. I went to see my Mum today.

His test looks negative but if you hold it up close and screw up your eyes you can seeContinue reading “Resting is so boring”

Greetings from The House of Covid

Howdi. David is Covid positive for the first time ☹️. I am not.. so far… we are trying to isolate away from each other in the house.

A few photos from Wellington College

Hi. Where does all the time go? I always manage to achieve much less than I hoped to at the weekends. I guess that’s what weekends are for, relaxing and not doing much, but it still annoys me! My crafty March plans are just that, plans. I am not sure they will become reality asContinue reading “A few photos from Wellington College”

Mad March Hares

Hello there. I haven’t actually seen any mad March hares recently, I just fancied saying it. I think my sister may have mentioned it first. I’m quite fond of hares. They seem lucky to me, but who knows. I’m done with Fit February. Good riddance January and February. I’ve never wanted to get through thoseContinue reading “Mad March Hares”
