Thank you for all the good wishes for my recovery – still rough and again the lovely Mr S has taken these photos for me today.

The lovely Mr S has been out into the rather damp garden to find me some beautiful things as I am laid up with some vile lurgy that has knocked the stuffing out of me. Postings may be sporadic over the next few day and I apologise to followers for no beautiful things yesterday.
It was a beautiful dawn this morning.
As I was watching the sun come up I noticed a fox walking across the back field.
I made a Chestnut and Amaretto Roulade today and it was scrumptious!
I love rainbows.
I tried a new recipe for tonight and it was delicious. I’m trying to do two each of vegan, vegetarian, meat and fish over each eight day sequence and this is a splendid vegan meal.
We have been singing carols for the start of Krowji’s open week of art sales – lots of fun. Here is a small group singing a bit of Gaudete.
We had hoped to see the Marazion murmuration this evening but the wind was far too strong and the starlings just flew in in small groups and went straight to roost in the reeds. There was still beauty to be found!
We took a couple of books with us for the Grandbabies (who are now 20 months and not babies at all so LiveWires 5 and 6) and then took LiveWire No 1 shopping in Granollers to choose her own good read. She chose a Wimpy Kid book, stories also loved by her English cousin, LiveWire No 2. We also found more books for the little ones in Catalan and English. These are children who, like their big sister, are growing up speaking Wolof, English and Catalan (and later Spanish too!) It is brilliant to hear them understanding all three languages and responding.
Flying home today was almost entirely fog bound but then the clouds broke up for a few moments and we could see the snow-covered mountains.
If you read my blog regularly you will have seen similar photos before. All of us who leave Cornwall for whatever length of time and then drive back in, look forward to our first glimpse of the Nearly Home Trees which signals our return to our beloved Cornwall. This was taken at speed!
