2  Lucy’s stories of her trek up to Everest Base Camp.

3  KJ made Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s Meat Loaf for supper and it was delicious.

Singing Amy Winehouse, Lucy News from Namche Bazaar and Daffodils

1  Fabulous singing session this morning learning ‘Valerie’ by Amy Winehouse.  As the harmonies built up and then the melody came over the top – it was brilliant!  And I hadn’t liked it much on first listen. I love the way Claire can do that for us!

2   Came home to find this message from Lucy on Facebook:   “Now that was the hardest thing that I have ever done and possibly the hardest thing that I will ever do, I got very sick and nearly didn’t make it, but did and now I’m flying back down the mountains… lots of love to all… Still taking sponsorship…http://fundraise.unicef.org.uk/MyPage/LucyEverestBaseCamp

We are so proud of her and delighted, that despite being so sick, she made it!

3  There are daffodils in the garden, some open, others just bending their heads ready to burst.  There’s a field near Ponsanooth on my way to Penryn that has daffodils all over it and it’s such a delight to round the corner and see them.  It’s not commercial growing – they’re just there!

More Brass Trade, ‘Fab after Fifty’ and Everest Base Camp Reached

1  Met a lovely man this morning whose daughter saw my ad for the brass sheets on Network Cornwall. He’s taken lots of the brass and is going to make me a weather vane. Even better, he mends instruments for Camborne Brass band so the material will be used in the way it used to be. That will please Charlie.

2  Sallie Grayson of People and Places, through whom we did our Voluntouring in Mapoch, South Africa,  sent me this article about the over 50s volunteering and they used my photo!

3  Lucy is due to reach Everest Base Camp today. We should hear from her in a couple of days as they get back down to Namche Bazaar.

Goldfinches, Trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar and The Inglehearts

1  Many goldfinches were here at the Nyger seed today. Where were they yesterday when we were counting?!

2  Lucy arrived home, tired but glowing after her trek-training on Dartmoor. They walked 15 miles along cliffs, rivers and woodland. She has another 10 days before setting off on the Trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar.

3  A couple, whose wedding ceremony I am conducting later this year, came to listen to The Inglehearts’ rehearsal tonight. They like us!
