Birthday, Departures and Truro

31 Dec

1   We still had six family people here for Birthday Breakfast which was so lovely – haven’t had offspring here for my birthday for many years.

2    Then it was the big pack up and lots of tearful farewells as some of the family leave for London. Click on any photo for more detail.

3   We spent the rest of the day in Truro, visiting the Cathedral, seeing the Peace Tree and reading the stars, watching the ice-skaters behind the Cathedral and shopping.   D&A are now cooking up a Senegalese feast for dinner and later we are going back to Truro to hear the Cathedral bells ring in the New Year and to see the fireworks.

I wish all my readers a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.

In the bookshop, I saw a One Direction calendar  – discovered just the other day that an ex-pupil of mine, Louis Tomlinson, is one of the crew! He was a lovely boy then!
