Brightness in the Mizzle, Awake and Sleeping

It has been a murky, mizzly day and I have spent much of it reading about life in Pachuca, Mexico in the late 1800s for our project, ‘Until the Day Break.’  This was my beautiful view through the window.

Last night we Skyped with our family in Spain and I took photos of the screen of Next-to-littlest -LiveWire and his baby sister, five weeks old. They aren’t good photos but aren’t the little ones just so very lovely?

Housel Bay Day 3, Colours of Kynance and Lichen

Our third day and we had a walk around Kynance Cove before heading for home. Kynance has always been a family favourite and today the colours were as lovely as ever even though the sunshine of the last few days had disappeared. We liked the lichen patterns too.  This is the view from our room this morning.

The Serpentine is very beautiful in this Cove.

These three days have been just wonderful – totally challenging and I ache all over the place – but just think – two years ago I couldn’t even have contemplated these Cornish coast path walks. Two new hips and two years on and I can do it! I can do some really challenging walks and survive!

Housel Bay Holiday

We are having three nights away on a 3 for 2 deal for the lovely Mr S’s birthday. We are only 40 minutes from home in a hotel overlooking the sea and with the coastal path moments away. Today we did a circular walk of a couple of hours on the path around The Lizard. Our room is lovely, we have watched boats go by, seen the sunset and the lighthouse light become brighter and now it’s time for dinner!



I think this house along the path may well feel the spray!

The view from our room!The Lizard Lighthouse from our room. Let’s hope for another glorious day tomorrow.

Together, Spring Flowers and Valentine’s Day

In the last couple of hours before the family left this morning, LiveWire T wanted to do a bit more on her embroidery.

Spring is on the way! We have Tete a Tete daffodils, Iris Reticulata and Snowdrops brightening the back garden.

Peace, A New Book and More Embroidery

Yesterday we collected flat pebbles at Portreath and today LiveWire T wrote kind and loving  words on them.

This morning the family went to visit The Poldark Mine and found it fascinating. I couldn’t go as I had to go to my Pilates class which helps me stay mobile!  LiveWire J was full of information that he had learned and was very struck by the fact that boys his age had to go down the mine to work!  We feel that the time is ripe for him to be given my Dad’s, his Great Grandfather’s novel, Jeremy Visick to read. He has promised to look after it and to tell me how he gets on with it.

LiveWire T has continued to work on her free embroidery and is taking great care with each stitch. This is our last day with them so we will need to finish it off early tomorrow morning before they leave at 9.30.

The 2nd Cornwall Ukulele Festival was nearby today and I went over to see some of my friends performing.It was enormous fun, everyone having such a good time but photos of people singing are often not the best so here I show a guitar under construction, being made by Martin Douglas.

As I left Heartlands the sun was creating sparkles on the lake.
