Our day was busy and hard work so I booked dinner at our favourite place, The Royal Oak in Perranwell. They have an airy marquee as a dining room extension and that’s where we chose to be. I started the evening with a Cornish gin flavoured with blackberries. It was delicious! That was our first visit in eighteen months though we did collect many take-aways during lockdown. We are so glad they have survived though like many places in Cornwall they are short staffed and working really hard to keep customers happy.

We stopped at our favourite coffee shop, Home Ground, this afternoon and were joined by Charlie, the Coffee Shop Cat, a very self assured individual. He reminds me of Orlando the Marmalade Cat, a favourite storybook from my childhood.
It was our last session for singing with The Suitcase Singers until September and next week is our lovely choir leader’s half century birthday. To make it special each member of the choir was asked to bring a couple of blooms or greenery from their garden so that we could put together a more personal bunch than one from a shop. The resulting bouquet was absolutely amazing, full of colour and scent and most of all, full of our love for Claire
Tomorrow we have a little visitor arriving to stay with us for about 6 weeks. She is a beautiful little cat called Fern and today we bought some Feliwell, on the recommendation of our daughter, to help her settle in. We also bought her a little toy. We are both really excited to have a little cat in our household again.
Our supper tonight was baked potatoes! They were delicious. 🙂
A gift of four lovely looking baking potatoes was waiting for us when we went down to water my seeds at the allotment tonight. They will make splendid dinners. Thank you S&M. (I put M&S first but then, dear Reader, you might have thought that they came from the store!)
I have spent the day in the shade on this beautiful sunny day and have read a whole book, completely unable to put it down – Helen Dunmore’s “Talking to the Dead.” If you enjoy a taut, psychological story that keeps you guessing, this is for you. It left me stunned.
