Last time we went on The People’s Vote March, I was touched by a young woman’s generosity when she passed out home-made Brownies to the crowd around her. Today I have baked 50 Oat and Cherry Cookies to hand out to fellow protesters. I packed them up before taking a photo so here are the three saved for us!

Another busy day starting with having a stall at the Redruth Re-use, Re-cycle Market which was fun and I sold several pieces which was pleasing. The boots are a tiny version of the Sally-boots I knit for all new babies, knitted with fine golden yarn on very thin needles.
In the afternoon I attended a fascinating conference “Cornwall – Herstory”, run by the Institute of Cornish Studies. My choir were singing at the end of the conference which went down very well. I loved this particular slide when the speaker was telling us of the part Cornish women played in the abolishment of slavery while also explaining how some Cornish women benefitted from sad slavery – very interesting.
The campus at Tremough in Penryn is enormous and set on what was farmland. From the car park down to the lecture theatre students (and I) walked down this lovely lane which was transformed into a stream by the downpour that was happening as I splashed my way back after the conference.
We arrived home on Wednesday evening and went straight to the sea.
We spent Thursday unpacking etc. On Friday morning we went to stand with the Youth strike for the Climate in Truro
…….. and in the evening to a splendid Sing and Supper at Mount Pleasant Eco Park with friends.
Saturday saw us in Truro again for International Peace Day and taking part in a flashmob in Truro Cathedral. The following video gives a flavour of the wonderful event.
Today I have made my first Christmas angel of the season out of Victorian window glass and some pretty beads I picked up while away.This afternoon we have been blackberry picking and got caught in a drenching storm and this afternoon ……..
The show was amazing! Yskynna, the aerial dance company and the singers combined to tell the story of a Cornish Bal maiden and the audience loved it. Click on any photo in the gallery for a closer look.
At the weekend, Extinction Rebellion put 200 flags on boats in Falmouth harbour to draw attention to the climate emergency and I hoped our boat was one of them. We went to have a look this evening and we have a flag!
I had two and a half hours reading magazines in a waiting room this afternoon and found several interesting recipes which I photographed. Tonight I made Maple Soy Chicken with Pak Choi and Mushroom Stirfry which was, indeed, very tasty.
Ten years or so ago, when our first Grandchild arrived, I bought a beautiful Noah’s ark. Today, as none of the LiveWires now play with it, I have passed it on to our lovely neighbour for her visiting Grand nephew and nieces to play with.
