If you are regular reader, you may know that I am trying to photograph all our new buses with their very special words on the back. I caught this one speeding up the hill this morning and I love it!
Ute, one of my blogging friends has been painting her staircase and it has earned a place in beautifulthings as it is so delightful and it made me smile. I wish we could do that here.
I’ve been next door this afternoon helping to finish off the Memory boxes which we have been making with the young Mums’ group. All cats like to hide in boxes and Zorro made himself comfortable in the suitcase of plastic flowers!
A postcard arrived today, from my cousin, David, in Australia. He says, “Last time we were in the UK we visited Grandfather’s Church in Cockerham (in Lancashire) where we were jointly christened.” Somewhere I have a photo of us both in our Granpa’s arms, just christened. I must look it out. We are both Capricorns…….
In Truro today in the Lemon Street Gallery I saw some beautiful pottery that I may not resist next time we are there. The full slogan is, today you must sparkle! I especially love the little tea-pot.
We followed another of our new buses today and I caught a different back view – another for our Cornish friend S who lives in Vermont.
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
3 There are beautiful hanging baskets all over our town, brightening up the streets.
Just a few of the beautifully full and colourful baskets in Redruth
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!
