Fingerless glove, Colourgirl and Deborah’s turtle

1  Mr Smith had the bright idea that a fingerless glove might keep my arthritic wrist warm without restricting movement as the wrist splint does so I downloaded a pattern and knitted one this morning. Brilliant! It’s helping.

2 The Colourgirlz started work on the front door. Veronika worked so hard and already there is transformation – ugly wallpaper gone and  undercoats on front door and porch woodwork.

3  Deborah had an encounter with a turtle:

”  I had an amazing close encounter with an enormous sea turtle yesterday.  I was close, but at a respectful distance, and he swam over to where I was.  He blew bubbles for me and looked as if he wanted to climb into my lap.  He craned his head out of the water, getting as close as possible.  He felt so wise and ancient. I stayed with him for a long while, just communicating with him and loving him, what an incredible gift.  I attached a photo of him blowing bubbles!”

20/11/2011 Singing, Cornish singing, Love song

Yesterday was a day full of singing:

1 Flash mob singing in Truro – people from all 3 of Claire’s choirs came together for three flash mob events. It was a brilliant and uplifting experience. (We hope for a YouTube link at some point.)

2  Went with next-door-Sue to Hilary, Neil and Will’s 150th birthday party in a wonderful old house in Prussia Cove – music playing and lots of very Cornish singing that was great fun to join in with. Took them a carrot cake with 150 stars!

3  At the same evening, was introduced to Rory Mcleod, a fabulous musician and singer. I loved his stuff especially the love song he did for Will and his partner.
