Twin Insurance, More Daffodils and Come-to-Good

Twin Insurance, More Daffodils and Come-to-Good

1   Found the “‘Twins” Insurance Certificate today, taken out on March 22nd 1977 when, at 8 weeks pregnant, I was absolutely certain that I was pregnant with twins but my GP thought I was stupid!

My lovely Mum and Dad bought us this policy as we couldn’t afford it and when our twins were born in September, the money bought us bunk beds for the two older children (one 4 and the other 20 months) and a tumble drier to dry all those nappies! For those much younger than I am, there were no scans then so no-one could be sure (except me!)  You can see a photo of my twins at nearly 2 on Feb 28th.

2   We went to Trelissick  today to find, by chance, the Cornish Daffodil Exhibition. My regular readers will know how much I love daffodils. Here there were more than I have ever seen before.

3   The Quaker Meeting House at Come-to-Good, near Feock, is a beautiful, peaceful place. The only sound was that of bird song coming through the open door. It’s hard to say what the place does for us but we both love it.

      I thought not so I wanted you to have the chance to see this, built in 1710! The thatch was renewed last year but basically it’s as it was. It didn’t seem right to take photos inside. It just has plain wooden seats and a wooden speaking place. There are baskets of rugs and cushions and a few jigsaw puzzles for the children. There is an electric light but there doesn’t seem to be any heating – hence the rugs! 🙂
