New utensils pot = living the dream 😊

Hi, I love my new utensils pot for the newly refurbished kitchen! I’ve been looking for one recently to replace a blue jug and a ceramic pot that looked cluttered and not in keeping with the new grey and neutral colour scheme. I know this was quite expensive, £22.97 including post and packing from Amazon,Continue reading “New utensils pot = living the dream 😊”

March is flying by…

March has been a whirlwind, don’t you think? It’s really sped by. I’m afraid crafty March has not been very crafty. I have run out of time and it is nearly over. The three craft activities completed have been: 1 Hand hemming to take up my new work brown trousers and wearing them several timesContinue reading “March is flying by…”

Beautiful Spring has Sprung

Hi. Magnolia trees are blossoming everywhere. Don’t you just love them? This one above I spotted in Kingston when I took my Mum to the dentist both on Tuesday and Wednesday… a long story. There are also lots of friendly little robins around. This little chap was trying to nick my breakfast at Costa yesterday.Continue reading “Beautiful Spring has Sprung”

Snowdrops and Camellias

Hi. I took this shot above of the beautiful snowdrops in my garden today. Aren’t they lovely? Isn’t it amazing the detail you can get with an iPhone camera? There are a few clumps of snowdrops. They’ve only just come out properly, later than a lot of my neighbours’ for some reason. I was alsoContinue reading “Snowdrops and Camellias”

Another sunny day in Windsor, a bit ill and off work

2021 – the year that was

Hi. Happy New Year’s Eve. I’m just looking back on my photos from this year, to remind myself of the highs and lows. This time last year I was enjoying a walk to Budgen’s supermarket to buy our New Year’s Eve ready meal. I looked forward to the outing for quite a few days, asContinue reading “2021 – the year that was”

Everything including the kitchen sink…

So here you are, my new kitchen sink. You get everything on The Waffle including the kitchen sink. It’s going to look better with the new quartz worktop. That’s being measured up tomorrow and being installed on 21 December I believe. We also got a new induction hob installed today. I have absolutely no ideaContinue reading “Everything including the kitchen sink…”

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!”

Lockdown no.3

Hi. Greetings from England and indeed the UK’s lockdown no.3. I predicted a long time ago we would have a total of 7 lockdowns in the end. “7??!” I hear you cry, yes 7 my friends. I hope I’m wrong, but we are constantly underestimating this virus and it’s certainly not done with us yet.Continue reading “Lockdown no.3”
