Day 294 – Trick Or Treat…?

OK, it’s another 10 days until Halloween, but with two grandchildren to amuse, we decided to decorate the house ready for the 31st… I guess we will carve pumpkins a little nearer the time (stay tuned!) but for now we are using the plastic variety…

Day 293 – The Real Thing…

Although I read the odd book on holiday, and little otherwise, my wife positively devours books – sometimes 2 or 3 in a week. We both have Kindle e-readers, which are fantastically useful on holiday, but overall she prefers ‘real’ books. This is our bookcase at home – most of the books here are waiting to be read as we usually give them away when finished…

Day 291 – Still Going…

It was my wife’s birthday a week ago and I bought her flowers (of course). Normally, cut flowers only last a few days in our house as it’s pretty warm, but as you can see these are still going strong. It may cost more buying them from a florist rather than a supermarket, but they definitely last longer…

Day 289 – All Set Up…

Ever since I bought my laptop I’ve been planning on getting an external monitor for it, and doing away with my desktop iMac. There’s nothing wrong with the iMac, it’s just easier to manage photos on one computer only. Finally did it today!

Day 286 – Let’s Celebrate…

It was my wife’s birthday yesterday, and as usual she received a fair few cards from friends and family. There does seem to be a bit of a theme to the cards – around half of them refer to either gin, wine or prosecco. They certainly know her!!!

Day 285 – Should I Eat Them…?

More mushrooms… It’s that time of the year – a combination of damp but still moderately mild weather that causes an explosion of fungi all around. We get them in the lawn and flower beds, and further afield, in the hedgerows and fields. I’m sure some are edible, but I don’t have a clue!
