Sunday’s update: cold weather, food, walk, memories…

This wreath made me smile one lunchtime in Windsor this week. Is it a teddy bear or Mickey Mouse?! 🤣 It’s cold 🥶. Cosy in my house but cold outside. Yesterday we went for a walk at Windsor Home Park and the wind was bitter. I wrapped my scarf around my head but it wasContinue reading “Sunday’s update: cold weather, food, walk, memories…”

Pretty reindeer and kitchen progress (or not)

Hi all. Windsor is starting to look quite Christmassy. I like these pretty reindeer I spotted today outside my hairdresser’s. It’s called Icon in Windsor and is run by some lovely Polish ladies. They only take cash even in these post lockdown times, but their prices are reasonable for central Windsor. My locks are gettingContinue reading “Pretty reindeer and kitchen progress (or not)”

Beautiful pumpkins, new Aldi supermarket, wonderful trees

Hello. I am quite in love with the pumpkin on the left. I grew it myself. It is so smooth and round, the weight of a new born baby. I have watched it steadily progress from green to orange on my kitchen windowsill over the past few weeks. Maybe we will eat it soon. IContinue reading “Beautiful pumpkins, new Aldi supermarket, wonderful trees”

You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!

Hello my friends. The pumpkins are still partially green. We decided not to carve them yet. Halloween will be late in our house. I’ve never carved a pumpkin lantern before, as far as I remember. I want it to be an orange pumpkin, otherwise what’s the point? Did you know pumpkins are actually fruit notContinue reading “You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!”

Pumpkin progress, trip to Reading and walk in Boveney

Well, the pumpkins are turning orange albeit very slowly. I think we’ll be having Halloween at mid to end of November at this rate 🤣. They seem to go orange from the bottom up, interesting stuff. Apart from watching pumpkins turn orange, we’ve been having a relaxing weekend at home. Yesterday we had a tripContinue reading “Pumpkin progress, trip to Reading and walk in Boveney”

Pumpkins, Foxes, Twinkletoes and Trees…

Hi everyone. Do you like my pumpkins 🎃? I grew them myself. I know they’re supposed to be orange. I’ve now brought them into the house as apparently that will help them to turn orange. They are clean, warm and cosy next to the kitchen window for sunlight. I was planning on making curry andContinue reading “Pumpkins, Foxes, Twinkletoes and Trees…”

Saturday afternoon walk around Maidenhead

Hello! For a change this afternoon David and I decided to go for a little stroll around Maidenhead after lunch. Maidenhead is about 6 miles from Windsor. It’s currently a town in transition, with not many of the locals liking the changes. One part of the new development I do like is the canal areaContinue reading “Saturday afternoon walk around Maidenhead”

I have a new washing up bowl!

Good evening, morning etc wherever you may be. I bring exciting news…….I have a posh new washing up bowl and I love it! The full details of it are here. It’s expensive, but I didn’t pay quite this much, as if you sign up to the elephant box newsletter you can get a small discount.Continue reading “I have a new washing up bowl!”

The “C” word (not Covid)… and maybe a little bit of moaning from a middle aged woman..

Hi. I am quite cross my friends. I walked up to Timpson’s to get my new watch battery just now. The shop closes at 4.00 pm on Sunday, supposedly, and I arrived at 3.05 pm. The bloke (who was busy hoovering his very small portacabin) was rude and refused to serve me as he preferredContinue reading “The “C” word (not Covid)… and maybe a little bit of moaning from a middle aged woman..”
