Delivery Day, Angels and Snoods

Today I took all the baby hats to the wool shop and was delighted to hear that the Midwife from Treliske Hospital will be collecting all the little hats at the end of the week. We also delivered our two goody packed boxes to one of the Cornwall Christmas box collection points. The idea is to fill them with food for a family for Christmas dinner plus some treats.

Ready for delivery

I hung some angels today and loved that they seem to be flying. Thanks, A!

When we were in Truro on Saturday, I took two snoods hoping to find the two Big Issue people that we buy from and talk to. They were both delighted to be given a Christmas present – one will be kept by S; the other is to be passed on to someone who needs it more………..

Falmouth Docks, Red Lights and The Super Moon

We had lunch with friends today and this was part of the view from the window.

I was looking for the Super Moon this evening and saw  that the light shining through the back door glass was throwing coloured lights onto the ground outside.

I found the Super Moon by going out at the front instead of through the back!

Paddling, Trevince House and Canapés 

Truro was traffic free today for a Christmas Market and this little chap took the opportunity to paddle in the Leats.

Both my choirs were singing for the shoppers at the Christmas fair in Trevince House this afternoon. I loved the stained glass windows….

And the chimneys!

This evening we have been at the most delightful gin tasting party!  Our contribution was some Smoked Salmon pate blinis and some mini Lime and Ginger Cheesecakes.

Blue Sky, Shadow and Carn Brea

On my two mile walk back from delivering our car to the garage early this morning, I was, as always, keeping a lookout for lovely things and I found them!

Long Tail Tits, Pear Shaped and Paddington Bear

My favourite birds turned up at the bird feeder this morning, about a dozen of them at the fat balls that I renewed yesterday. By the time I took my photo the skittish little creatures were away! They were truly there until I clicked the camera!

The Long Tails have just left the picture

After a fabulous sing this morning, plans went pear-shaped and the less said the better but I now have glasses that I can see through though I was too late for my lift to the singing tonight.

As compensation, we went to see a delightful film, Paddington 2 and a couple of screen shots follow. This beautiful Bear who loves Marmalade sandwiches stole my heart!

Another Dawn, Thanks and A Hedgehog Home

The beautiful colour of the dawn could be seen from the front of the house, looking North, and from the back today –  just glorious.

Thank you to Year 3 pupils #Barnacre Road Primary School whose instructional video on ‘How to Make a  Hedgehog Home’ I have followed today and now there is a waterproof and dry leaf lined home for hedgehogs in our garden. We have seen evidence of hedgehogs in our garden and hope that they will now be able to make a safe winter home underneath the Rosemary.
