A Very, Very Good Day!

06 Jul

Today, our eldest daughter has come to spend the day with us, the first time since lockdown – and what a day we’ve had. She arrived in her best car, an Audi A8,in glorious red to celebrate our day together.

We went down to Chapel Porth, a family favourite and almost had the beach to ourselves.

We bought Cornish pasties for lunch, of course, and after lunch sat in the sunshine in the garden enjoying each other’s company.

M, like me, has a passion for making and story telling – it runs in the family. She has made some lovely 3D pieces for us and this evening has made a new button for our loo. It was lost some years ago and today, M has 3D printed us a new part. She brought her 3D printer down especially to do this job and it has been fascinating to watch the whole process.ย 

Above is the prototype starting to be printed and the final piece is below.

The only one like this in the world!

To celebrate further, I made a new recipe, Blueberry and Cream Cheese Crostata and it was truly delicious.

    What a delightful visit and the new loo button is very smart indeed. The dessert looks scrumptious. ๐Ÿ˜

    I imagine you were flush with excitement at the thought of a new button for the loo?

    The Blueberry and Cream Cheese Crostata looks yummy! And interesting that Chapel Porth was quiet although I suspect the wind would have kept many people from the beach. Was there plenty of parking then? No advance bookings? So lovely to see family again.

      There was room for about 8 more cars when we arrived at 11 wish. By the time we left an hour or so later, there were only two! I think most people must have been walking rather than on the beach. We saw two families tucked into cave areas but not many others on the beach. Fabulous to see family again! The Crostata was amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚
