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)”

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”

Halloween is coming…bonfire night…then Christmas!

Hi. Halloween has never been my favourite festival. I definitely prefer bonfire night on 5 November, and of course Christmas and Easter. I’m not a religious person so Christmas and Easter are festivals of family, friends and food. I’m getting into the Halloween spirit nonetheless with my home grown pumpkins 🎃 – looking more orangeContinue reading “Halloween is coming…bonfire night…then Christmas!”

The busyness continues…

Life is busy but good for me at the moment. How are you? This week as well as working every day I went out several times. Firstly I went to book club at The Swan pub on Tuesday night. There were only 3 of us this time (2 ladies and 1 man) but we hadContinue reading “The busyness continues…”

Busy week!

Hi. This is a super quick blog post to say I’m having a very busy week both at work and in my social life, but I am thinking of you. Of course! This was our quick and tasty dinner tonight. Chicken breast pieces cooked in this curry sauce with basmati rice. We’ve had Holy CowContinue reading “Busy week!”

Brimstone moth and other important matters

Hello world. This lovely Brimstone moth visited our house recently. It was on the floor downstairs, then upstairs on a window ledge and then on the stairs’ carpet for a couple of days. We were careful not to step on him and I called him “Mr Brimstone” which hopefully he found quite respectful! He hasContinue reading “Brimstone moth and other important matters”
