Delight and Surprise

My beloved Beetle has been away with Daughter No 1 for a couple of months being cherished and renovated and has come back today looking even better than when I bought her, two years old, eleven years ago. Absolute perfection!  I  am utterly delighted.

The roof hasn’t worked for many years – roll on Summer!

Just look at the wheels  and  the  finish  on  the  paintwork!

It is a joy to have my Beetle back and a joy to drive again.  Thank you so much, M, for your fabulous work.

Choir Snippet, Be Yourself and Gorse

We rehearsed outside the Gylly cafe on Friday night prior to our performance at the Falmouth Golf Club. Here is a tiny bit of us singing. I’m not singing here as I was filming!

I love e e cummins as regular readers will know. Here are some words of wisdom from him. It feels, here in the UK at the moment, that we are fighting to save our way of life as we anticipate the election later this week. 

There is a saying in Cornwall that you can only kiss when the Gorse is in flower. It makes me happy to find Gorse in flower in every month of the year!

Last Market, Cakes and A Coat

Today was the Christmas Market, last one of the year, and it went well.

The other stalls around were delightful – next door to me a cake stall with gorgeously decorated small cakes and some delightful biscuits, made by Pink Peach Cake Co.

‘Love Betty’ was across the way and a lovely young woman, a student at Falmouth University, bought a coat that suited her so very well.

Trelissick Gardens in Winter Sunshine

We’ve had several sunny days and it has been glorious to feel warmth and see blue skies and blue seas. Trelissick gardens were lovely to walk around and to soak up sunshine. Enjoy the gallery.



Perthi Kov and Habits

Sue, my lovely neighbour, and I have been to a local history society this evening to talk about our project, Until the Day Break, which was performed in St Euny Churchyard in 2017. You can check out the project and the stories on our website.This advice came my way today. Sounds good if I can stick to it.

Christmas Boxes

A few years ago, a young man in Cornwall started the Cornwall Christmas Box scheme. He had the idea to collect together in a box, all the things needed for a Christmas dinner for a family.Today we dropped off two boxes of Christmas dinners. They joined another 8 which others had delivered and that’s just one drop-off place and a week early so I’m hoping there will be loads to be distributed all over Cornwall. 

Last year almost 100 were donated. Maybe this year there will be even more. Sadly, the need is greater than ever. Almost unbelievable, about a third of children in Cornwall are living in poverty

Creativity, Mess and Ideas

Our dining room has become my glass workroom and I’ve made another pair of curtains for L today on the kitchen table. Tomorrow I can post them to the cottage.
