A Westi, Thrift and An Easter Cookie Cake

We followed a car this morning with a little hairy dog putting its head out of the window. Is it a Westi? I’m not a dog person but loved this little head and the reflection.

The Thrift is beginning to bloom at Godrevy. Look carefully at the second photo and you will see some clinging to the vertical face of the cliff, almost in the centre of the photo.

I baked an Easter Cookie Cake for next door where all the family are gathered.  The recipe says to serve it warm from the container, all diving in with a spoon!

 

 

Mothers’ Day, Treats and Love

Our lovely kids were all in touch today with cards, calls, chocolates and photographs and an extra rather special gift:   Refuge_parcels_-_mother_s_parcel. Do click on the link to see the important work being done for women less fortunate than those in my family.

It has been another beautiful day so we popped down to Chapel Porth before the crowds! Join our walk at low tide on an almost empty beach.

I send my love to all my lovely readers, be you Mothers or not. I hope you have all had a good day.

Duet, Knitting and Crocuses

This video of a four year old girl singing a duet with her Dad has made my day! In a world as crazy as this one seems just now, family love, talent and friendship are to be celebrated. Please click on the link.

I have a new knitting project which has to be completed by March.

The Crocuses that I showed you in bud are now gloriously out and beautiful.

Sharing, Scooting and Climbing 

A quiet morning watching Brave and sharing a bowl of popcorn followed by a busy afternoon scooting and walking to the park where tree climbing was the best fun.

Knitting, Barcelona and Bristol

A parcel of baby clothes has been sent from Daughter no 3 for the soon-to-be-born Grandbaby twins.  It contains little things that I have knitted over the last eight years for all of our Grandbabies so far and among those treasures I found the first tiny cardigan that I knitted in 1973 for our own first baby!


We left Barcelona this morning……..

……..   arriving in Bristol this afternoon where we picked up the car and are now in London with two more LiveWires. Our eldest daughter has arrived this evening and tomorrow the rest of the family will be here for a rather late family get together for Christmas!


Just before landing in Bristol, green fields of home!

Balcony, Oranges and Knitting 

The sun shone on the Geraniums on this colourful balcony in Canovelles.

We love to see oranges growing in gardens here in Spain. We don’t see this at home in Cornwall.

Oldest LiveWire has completed the first square for her blanket for her baby brother and sister whose arrival we are still awaiting!

Fathers, Brine and L R Knost

It was on this day in 2004 that my lovely Dad died and he has been in my mind and my heart more than usual today. The following cutting was found by my Mum many, many years ago and clearly made her think of her Father, my Grandfather, The Rev W R Richards, whom I knew for only a couple of years when we lived in the Vicarage in Cockerham, Lancashire with him and my Granny.dscn9591

If only – my lovely Dad was a very wise man.

The turkey is sitting in the brine I made yesterday. Isn’t it a beautiful colour?dscn9580

These words from L R Knost touched me.peace
