That was the most uplifting and beautiful concert by the Truro Cathedral Choir featuring gems from all seven of the G7 nations and sung in six languages. I gave you the song, Gee 7, written by Sir Tim Rice a few days ago. Here is the link if you’d like to listen. It’s really lovely .

I have mentioned a number of times that the G7 Summit is happening over this coming weekend in Carbis Bay, Cornwall. Everyone has now arrived and talks as well as various protests have started. Another film being shown is this one from children from Marazion School near Penzance and Stoke Climsland School near Callington. It, too, like Gee 7 which I gave you a couple of days ago, is very moving and really needs to be listened to by our leaders and by all of us.
Even before the G7 had sat down to begin their Cornish summit, Mount Recyclemore, a sculpture made of discarded electronic waste depicting the visages of the seven leaders, looked bound to be one of the stars of the show.
About 15 artists helped create the structure over a frantic six weeks at Rush’s scrapyard/studio in south London. Parts were then shipped down to Cornwall on lorries and put together in situ.”
We need to visit Sandy Acres Beach to see this. This afternoon we did one of our favourite walks along the cliffs at Godrevy. We had thought it might be blocked off but apart from the radar area and seeing army personnel, all was much as usual.
It’s 28 years since my Mum died on this day and I still want to tell her stuff that excites me or that I need her wisdom on. It doesn’t go away.
Today I want to celebrate her life by recognising some of the gifts that came from her – my love of gardening and of cooking.
She would have been delighted with us having an allotment so here are a couple of the flowers from there today.
After she retired, she used to fill in forms that asked for her profession not as ‘Retired Teacher of the Deaf’ but as Head Gardener.
She was a brilliant cook too so here is a coffee cake I have made today for the cake stall at the Redruth Butter Market stall tomorrow.
We met at the Blue Bar for a long and lazy brunch, spent the next three hours playing on the beach, had MooMaid ice creams for lunch, came home and played in the garden, had dinner outside, visited the allotment and waved goodbye. What a lovely, lovely day and a wonderful start to Joyful June!!
here is this month’s happiness calendar.
