We moved to Cornwall from Birmingham when I was six years old. I had already lived in Cockerham, Surbiton and Edgbaston before that and was to live in ten more addresses before Mr S and I had our first home together. These are all the beautiful (well, most of them) places that I grew up in with fields and lanes, creeks and the beach as my playgrounds. I was so very lucky.
