Last Market, Cakes and A Coat

Today was the Christmas Market, last one of the year, and it went well.

The other stalls around were delightful – next door to me a cake stall with gorgeously decorated small cakes and some delightful biscuits, made by Pink Peach Cake Co.

‘Love Betty’ was across the way and a lovely young woman, a student at Falmouth University, bought a coat that suited her so very well.

Baubles, View and Light Tree

At the orthopaedics out-patient clinic today – everyone was so kind, thoughtful, informative and friendly. I love our NHS and its amazing staff who made  my visit a very good experience. All the walls were decorated with baubles and snowflakes and it was very pretty.

The view across the Hayle Estuary was lovely in the brief sunshine.

My choir did a brief warm up and rehearsal outside the Gylly cafe tonight on our way to our performance.

Trelissick Gardens in Winter Sunshine

We’ve had several sunny days and it has been glorious to feel warmth and see blue skies and blue seas. Trelissick gardens were lovely to walk around and to soak up sunshine. Enjoy the gallery.

The Sea, Logs and Glasses

We love the winter when all the leaves have gone off the trees and we can again see the sea from our bedroom window.

As we drove into the drive to visit friends today, there was this beautifully neat wood pile.

Our friends showed us some beautiful old glasses with a flower at the bottom. The effect of the cut glass makes a kaleidoscope effect which is absolutely lovely.

 

Sunset, Christmas Tree and Kindness

As I left for choir this evening, the sky was on fire.

The children at the school where we rehearse every week  had been busy today decorating their Christmas tree.

I saw this the other day and loved it. I want our town to put the I into KIND on International Kindness Day next year on November 13th.

 

Christmas Boxes

A few years ago, a young man in Cornwall started the Cornwall Christmas Box scheme. He had the idea to collect together in a box, all the things needed for a Christmas dinner for a family.Today we dropped off two boxes of Christmas dinners. They joined another 8 which others had delivered and that’s just one drop-off place and a week early so I’m hoping there will be loads to be distributed all over Cornwall. 

Last year almost 100 were donated. Maybe this year there will be even more. Sadly, the need is greater than ever. Almost unbelievable, about a third of children in Cornwall are living in poverty

St Michael’s Mount, A Lurcher and Sunset

Today has been glorious so we went off to Penzance for lunch and shops and a walk along the bay at Marazion. The sun was warm and we soaked it up.
