Today and 2020

31 Dec

I am having the loveliest birthday! We started with the family tradition of croissants for  breakfast, spent the day in Penzance just wandering the streets and had lunch out. We then spent a happy hour choosing paint for our soon-to-be-transformed hall, stairs and landing.
This evening we have had a fabulous dinner of Confit Duck with Miso glazed green beans and creamy mash followed by Alice’s Caramel and Chocolate Orange Tart, just scrumptious – all interspersed with lovely calls and messages and cards and presents and video calls so that I feel very loved and very happy!

On this, the night before the New Year, I wish all my Dear Readers the very best for the coming year and beyond. I echo the words of Neil Gaiman.

      I’m impressed! I know the Cornish for happy New Year so I’m guessing that the first words are Happy Birthday! Thank you very much. I had a lovely day. 🙂
