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.

Our four clubbed together to send a surprise to the lovely Mr S for Father’s Day and it arrived a couple of days ago. They have twinned a latrine in Zambia and we now have the Certificate in our downstairs loo. When we volunteered in Mapoch, South Africa, building a classroom, we also worked on building a latrine for the school children and staff so this gift seemed particularly appropriate. www.toilettwinning.org
Then an peaceful hour bird watching – a lovely variety (they don’t seem to mind the rain) including our first Lesser Spotted Woodpecker in some time.
The secret bits of the house were open today for short tours and was fascinating.
While we were waiting to go in to the house we watched a pair of Martins feeding their young.
It is Refugee Week this week and today, on World Refugee Day, Claire’s No Talent Re-choired group sang Imagine and Your Love Lifts Me Higher and Higher at an open mic session where we were also collecting supplies for refugees in Greece and Calais. It is so heartening to see so much brought in – tents, sleeping bags, tinned and dry food and baby supplies – and all from a community that is not the wealthiest by any stretch of the imagination. Choose Love, as several tee shirts said and we do.
It is so good to come home! We have been in the big city for the last few days – so to come home to fresh air, peace and quiet and the beauty of Cornwall is quite something. We enjoyed our adventures but it is so good to come home. Please enjoy the gallery below giving you a taste of Godrevy and the sea.
