Windsor is getting busy

Hello friends. We’ve been waiting for the crowds to hit Windsor this week and today we’ve noticed it’s started getting pretty busy with traffic and pedestrians. The influx of visitors to pay their respects to our Queen. There are people holding flowers here and there, on their way to The Long Walk, others looking lostContinue reading “Windsor is getting busy”

Goodbye Queen, Hello King

Hello everyone. We didn’t expect to lose The Queen this week, but there it is. Rest in peace Queen Elizabeth II, the only monarch I’ve known in my lifetime (not that I knew her, of course. I think I saw her in her car in Windsor on her way to Ascot once and I sawContinue reading “Goodbye Queen, Hello King”

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”

Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵

Hi. Sometimes hot and sunny weather is very pleasant, but sometimes like today for me, it just gets a bit too much. The grass is parched and yellow everywhere you look. We really need rain. We can’t remember when it last rained. David can’t remember when he last wore trousers instead of shorts. I can’tContinue reading “Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵”

Someone asked “What day is itContinue reading “Tuesday’s Waffle”

The colour of hydrangeas

So the crisis must have passed a little with my family situation, as I’m now noticing the colour of hydrangeas. This is one of our blue hydrangeas 🤔?!? David says it will turn blue after it is pink. We shall see… apparently it depends on the alkalinity of the soil. I never knew that before.Continue reading “The colour of hydrangeas”

Ongoing challenges

Hi. Nice bee isn’t it? I snapped this in Windsor Great Park last weekend. Life continues to be challenging for me. My Mum is relatively happy in her new care home residence. She’s very busy participating in lots of different activities. She even went on a trip to Brighton last week. One of her mainContinue reading “Ongoing challenges”
