I spent a lovely morning with a friend, first in the Cornish Studies Library at their Christmas in Cornwall exhibition and later over coffee putting the world to rights! While at the library I was able to introduce her to the wonderful Tregellas Tapestries which tell the story of Cornwall in a unique pictorial way. I have written about these wonderfully intricate works before so if you would like to see others in the series, put Tregellas into the search option.
The afternoon found us in Troon School rehearsing with the children, aged 4 – 11, for their Christmas Concert tomorrow evening. What a delight that was! In one of their playground planters was this richly velvety Pansy.
On the drive back we saw a brilliant rainbow, the end of which I just managed to catch as I arrived home.
I love how there is just a splash of blue sky and how the chimney stacks are being lit up by the golden glow of the evening sun.

You put the world right over coffee. Why isn’t the world run by mothers. A sagacious bunch you are.
You got my Google query. Tregellas. Redruth’s hidden treasure and all. You never really retired from teaching did you.

I suppose not! I was only nine years old when I wrote a note to my Mum and Dad to tell them that I was going to be a teacher so it has been with me for many years. I also told them that I would marry a teacher and have four children, including twins. That all happened too!
I truly believe that if more women ruled the world that it would be a more peaceful world (as long as they were not like Margaret T, our erstwhile PM!)

A world run with a woman’s touch could not hurt. Truth bombs wrapped in knitted hoodies (a metaphor not to be take literally) far better then say war heads. But there seems to be more and more MT’s out there and worst.
Destiny’s fledgling direct from shell; almost.

I love tapestries like these. I love the stories they tell.
