I sang at a care home in Falmouth with The Suitcase Singers this afternoon and it was an absolute delight to see the joy on people’s faces and to have them join in with Cornish songs. Afterwards we went to see the sea at Gylly Beach. I love the variety of blues seen here and the tiny paddle boarders, the yachts and other vessels.

Today I met a friend for lunch for the first time in three years! It was so lovely to spend time together again after so long. We went to a delightful cafe, tucked away down Cornish lanes where we could sit outside in the sunshine.
I love this! I have so many fat books that are full of memories of the times when I read them, when a friend read them or when my Mum read them – and some that really are full of pressed flowers and leaves.
While we are talking about words – is anyone else enjoying Quordle? I’m loving it!
It’s May 1st and Fete de Muguet in France. My dear friend Kath, in whose memory I write my blog, loved France and had a house in Meyssac. She always gave me Lily of the Valley if we were together or sent a card if not. These are for her and since they send good luck to receivers of the little bouquet, for you too, dear readers.

There were many interested in the steam train going through Cornwall yesterday and some friends went down to Penzance to see it. The driver invited them into the cab! Just look at that beautiful work.
Photos here with thanks to M and S.They also sent me a video but for some reason I can’t load it here.
Up early this morning and out before breakfast to see a steam train leaving from Penzance on its way up country. The Duchess of Sutherland came down on Thursday and returns today. I love the sound and the smell but didn’t get a good photo. A friend took this photo at the station. Thank you, R.
After lunch we met the rest of the family on the beach at Porthtowan where they all had fun playing on the beach and later had ice creams.
