Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale

Hi. Just waiting for the roast chicken to finish roasting in the oven. Yesterday David and I went for a walk in the Home Park in Windsor. David noticed the nice reflection of this house boat in the River Thames. I’m quite pleased with this photo I took. It seems well balanced and I likeContinue reading “Windsor, Wellington College trees + my first Vintage pop up sale”

Life is a walk in the park..

Well, yesterday morning it was, anyway. I had a lovely cappuccino, carrot cake and chat with my friend at the Imperial Park café in Windsor. The sun had kindly put his hat on which was very welcome. Gorgeous views. A few little dogs but no big scary ones. We walked several laps of the parkContinue reading “Life is a walk in the park..”

Hello

Hi. It’s Sunday. I’ve had a busy, sociable weekend. I took this picture of teasels today by the Dorney river. The weather’s warmed up a bit now, not so cold. Yesterday I was out for lunch and out for dinner. What a greedy girl! In London I met up with my Swansea Uni friends forContinue reading “Hello”

A very Merry Christmas from The Windsor Waffle

So here we are again Wafflers, Christmas Eve. I don’t know about you but I’m all set and ready for Christmas. Today I made the wreath above, just a wreath ring from Hobbycraft with bits from my garden stuck in. There’s no glue involved. It all gets thrown away afterwards and I start again nextContinue reading “A very Merry Christmas from The Windsor Waffle”

Purple berries

Hi. Aren’t these amazing? I spotted these soon after the pink berries. Even better in my opinion. I also found some great holly, very festive. Ho Ho Ho. 🎅🏻 I’m pleased to report I am feeling so much better than last weekend. I have a cold but I’m not in a mental slump any more.Continue reading “Purple berries”

Pink berries

Hi. I enjoyed seeing these pink berries on my walk today. I also saw these white ones which were OK but not as nice as the pink ones. Then I saw these which I think are little flower buds rather than berries. It’s amazing how much is still in flower past the middle of NovemberContinue reading “Pink berries”

A little overwhelmed

Hi. Today I’ve felt a little overwhelmed with all the stuff to do for my parents. After a day with my Dad yesterday and bringing home several bags of my Mum’s clothes to sort through I woke up early thinking of the piles and piles of accumulated stuff in my parents’ house and I hadContinue reading “A little overwhelmed”

Back Trak

So this was last night, bonfire night. David’s band, Back Trak, played outside at The Swan pub in Clewer, Windsor. It was a great night. Lots of people. Lots of dancing. Good fun. This is what a happy retirement looks like for David, away from the corporate world he used to inhabit. He also teachesContinue reading “Back Trak”

Windsor is getting busy

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”
