A few more patterns of Windsor

Hi guys. I’ve been out and about around Windsor again. Well, only a little walk, we are in Tier 4 you know. Today was a bit colder. Without snow, frost or ice, I can’t convey the sense of cold on the streets of Windsor, you’ll have to imagine it. The sky was cold, cloudy, paleContinue reading “A few more patterns of Windsor”

Super sky and architectural details of Windsor

Hi. You’re going to get a lot of photos today… brace yourselves! To start with, here are some architectural details from my lunchtime walk last week around Windsor.

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”

Fish Risotto

Hi Wafflers. How are you? I’m feeling quite tired but happy. Last night I cooked this fish risotto. It was really delicious. I would happily gobble up another plateful of it right now, but there’s none left. For tonight we are having an M & S ready made lasagne with petits pois, which is justContinue reading “Fish Risotto”

Sun over The River Thames at Windsor

Hello. I’m back. Sober. Here’s your bonus Saturday blog. After a disastrous attempt at a walk at Burnham Beeches this afternoon – do not go there unless you enjoy waiting in queues of traffic, looking for non existent car parking spaces amongst drivers of ridiculously large cars on particularly narrow roads, people everywhere, pushchairs, dogs,Continue reading “Sun over The River Thames at Windsor”

Thai red curry, the Great fig experiment and other Windsor Waffle

Tonight I’m making baked Thai red curry, from this book my friend Pat gave to me. Happy Birthday to Pat today by the way! Still young at heart I’m sure xx I’ve made the red curry paste and smeared it all over two chicken breasts and left it to marinate a bit. All that remainsContinue reading “Thai red curry, the Great fig experiment and other Windsor Waffle”

A bit of Gloom and Doom

Hello my Waffle friends/lockdown survivors. I don’t want to make you all too depressed, but there is a lot to worry about right now… the deadly second Coronavirus wave coming, the consequences of the economic downturn, the realisation that “normal” is still very far from “normal” however much we try to pretend it’s all OKContinue reading “A bit of Gloom and Doom”

Food glorious food

Greetings. I’ve had the day off work so today has been all about food and sunshine and I feel truly satisfied with that. I started off this morning with porridge in the garden. I like this sort and it’s really easy to do in the microwave. I have no idea what Acai is, but I’mContinue reading “Food glorious food”

Happy VE Day!

It’s something to celebrate, VE Day, 75 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. We haven’t got any bunting up, but plenty of our neighbours have. They have been having pretend street parties all afternoon, sitting in deck chairs on their front lawns shouting across at their socially distant neighbours. AllContinue reading “Happy VE Day!”
