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!

It will be our Annual Concert tomorrow evening with a visiting choir with whom we will do a workshop, then share a buffet supper before the doors are opened to our audience. My contribution to the buffet is a delicious dessert, Tunisian Almond and Orange Cake . You can find the recipe here
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 ……..
I noticed some windows in Redruth for the first time today and loved the fact that ‘DRESSES’ and ‘MANTLES’ are still etched into the glass. I’m hoping a local reader will know what the shop was in its heyday.
The West End Drapery Stores were quite something and the premises are still lovely on the outside. One section of the old shop is being renovated and has been recently painted and the floor tiles cleaned up.
I made a Chocolate and Beetroot Cake this afternoon for family arriving this evening. I love the mix when the egg yolks meet the melted chocolate.
Last night we saw our Hedgehog! Some time ago I mentioned that we had spotted hedgehog droppings and so knew there was a Hedgehog around. One of my Dear Readers suggested feeding him and as a result of her comments, we found some Hedgehog Biscuits! Now we feed him each evening as we go to bed. Last night we were a bit late and he was waiting!
It was the Crowan Cluster Preview evening for Open Studios in Cornwall and we visited our friend, Nicky Stephenson, potter, who makes the most beautiful pots. The cake is for her visitors over the week.
We’ve been busy in the garden today, planting small plants and sowing seeds.
I baked some Fruity Flapjacks for the lovely Mr S and Daughter No 1 who will be working on the boat for the next few days and will need lots of refuelling.
Regular readers will know that I like to incorporate sea glass into my glass pieces (Thank you, Judith!) I came across this poem which amused me – a lovely way to age.
