I’m very pleased with the colour in our Suffragette garden as October ends.
We have the treats ready for any young visitors who come to the door to scare us! Sadly, it’s a horrid wet and windy evening so maybe they won’t be knocking. That’ll be a shame as I love to see their costumes.
It’s very quiet here after a half-term week of Daughter 3’s family, followed by Daughter 2 and family, all held together by Daughter no 1 and now, suddenly it’s too quiet!. Here are a couple of photos from some time on the beach.
Someone at Community Roots was unable to collect her veg bag today so we have it instead and it is a glorious mix of fresh, organic veg that will last us more than a week. I plan on making a Chocolate Beetroot Cake, some Chilli Jam soup from the squash and …..

We had all the delicious fresh salad leaves with our meal last night and I have frozen the kale.

We took the family to Chapel Porth today where they had their lunch and then walked along the beach at low tide over to Porthtowan where we picked them up a few hours later.
I finished my first two angels today and the next two are ready for soldering.
Tonight there is a gig that we wanted to go to, Angeline Morrison with her set, The Sorrow Songs, see the poster below. We really wanted to go but missed out on tickets. Today, I stupidly replied to someone on Facebook who said she had tickets she couldn’t now use and to message her. I did. I transferred money. She didn’t send tickets. I realised I had been cheated. After almost an hour talking to the fraud people at the bank, they have assured me that my account is safe. They decided to refund me which astonished and pleased me as it was entirely my own fault. Big lesson learned today. Not everyone is kind or honest.
To make up for missing that, we are going to watch my all time favourite film which Daughter No 1 bought for me last Christmas.
UPDATE: The wonderful people at The Redruth Drapery, hearing of our plight, invited us down, saying they could squeeze us in. Angeline Morrison is as brilliant as we had hoped, her story telling and her song writing all in her gorgeous voice made for a very special evening after a really horrid afternoon.
