Robin, Lunch and Boxes

Watching the birds has been a joy over the last few months and now that it’s getting colder, the feeders are getting busier. This little robin is at the top of Mum’s old pan stand which I use for flowers in the summer.

I love making a Frittata using leftovers! In this one were some potatoes, Calabrese, pesto pasta, half a yellow pepper, some spinach, the last shallot and some  cheese. It was very tasty.

We have delivered our Christmas dinners in a box.. This is a scheme where a whole Christmas dinner plus treats are packed up in a decorated box and distributed, via the council, The boxes are given out by Cornwall Council’s teams working with vulnerable and impoverished families, the poorest in Cornwall, to give them something for Christmas. Nearly 1000 were donated last year.  If you are local and would like to contribute, here is the link.  
Sadly, even before Covid, 1/3 of the children living in Cornwall were living in poverty. I hope there are even more boxes donated this year by those who can.

Christmas Boxes, Tree and Hugs

You may have read a few days ago of the Christmas Boxes we have contributed to, to provide Christmas dinner in a box for the most impoverished families in Cornwall. Today, they have been collected from all over Cornwall and these are the words of the lovely, hardworking organisers.

“965 boxes donated – that’s something like £30,000 of food, helping around 5,000 people this Christmas.
That is awesome!
We are so proud of the people of Cornwall!!”

Isn’t that amazing? What generosity from one of the poorest areas of Europe!

The lovely Mr S put up our tree today. We’ll decorate it tomorrow.

I loved the idea of hugs being like jump start leads. Thank you so much to the makers, creatorsneverprosper.

Hugs
