Breakfast, A Rose and Gifts

Fluffy blueberry pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup was my breakfast treat – the lovely Mr S chose not to have the bacon but I love the sweet and savoury combo.

A rose we were given for our Golden Anniversary three years ago is still, in mid October, giving us beautifully scented blooms.

We’ve been at the allotment for hours today in beautiful Autumn sunshine trying to get the better of all the weeds. We have made progress. One I pulled up was a carrot which we have had for tea along with two Sweetcorn cobs which have been left behind by the previous owner. We have landed in a lovely community. One fellow allotmenteer kindly gave us a cucumber and some tomatoes this afternoon.



Marrow, Smiley Bus and Baskets

Last night as we came home quite late we found this beautiful marrow on our doorstep – from Sue-next-door’s allotment. Thank you. Now to find a new way to cook it! Marrow and Ginger Jam was a family favourite. I shall have to look up the recipe.

I love our new Cornish buses. As they approach they seem to be smiling and each one makes me smile back!

Smiley Cornish buses – you can just see the Town Clock in the distance, towering over the main street

This may not seem to be a beautiful thing but it is in that it takes away all the uncertainty – I have my date for my second Hip Replacement operation – August 19th.
This is a very good date as all the family will just have left after a 10 day holiday with us, D&A&NM from Barcelona, KJ,J&T from London, L&B from Norfolk and M from Exeter. We will have all our four together which hasn’t happened for almost two years so it is very exciting.  It is also more than 12 weeks before Christmas so I will be back, all singing and dancing for that celebration when we are hoping that the whole family will be together again as the Visas needed by the Senegalese contingent of our family are for 6 months. Big smiles all round!
