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”

Happy Weekend

Hi everyone. Do you like these big tyres? I took this arty farty shot this afternoon at Windsor Home Park. It’s quite cold in Windsor at the moment. I had my hat pulled down right over my ears. Everything was looking a bit January bleak and not very pretty or photogenic. I only took aContinue reading “Happy Weekend”

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…”

Sunday’s blog.. the colour orange

Hi. These gorgeous vibrant berries caught my eye the other day walking around the block. I’m loving all the autumn oranges around in nature at the moment. It’s been a busy but fun weekend. We went to a new restaurant in Windsor last night. It’s called Plate at No.6 and I thought it was superb.Continue reading “Sunday’s blog.. the colour orange”

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)”

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…”

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!”

Hello new poinsettia

Well it must be nearly Christmas as we bought a poinsettia today. Windsor Garden Centre is sadly closing down, to make way for an Aldi supermarket. Squires Garden Centre has already gone. We are going to be left with no garden centres in Windsor at all. That is a sad state of affairs. But onContinue reading “Hello new poinsettia”

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!)”
