Tag Archives: Jeremy Visick
For years we have wondered about having somewhere to commemorate my Mum and Dad and have thought that a bench near Gwennap Church where Dad found his inspiration for his best seller, “Jeremy Visick” would be just perfect. The stream that runs by is mentioned in the story too and the place really is special to all the family. Today, with the blessing of the Vicar, we met the Church warden to discuss how this can happen and where to site the bench – just to the right of the one that is there already. So delighted that this project is finally going to happen. I’ll keep you informed as things progress.
A friend sent a message today to say that in her clearing out she has found some single earrings and can I use them in my glass projects? Yes, I can! I’ve left a little bunch of sweet peas on the doorstep in exchange.
The following words seem right in these strange and discombobulating times. I have posted them before, some four years ago.
I watched a pair of Magpies from the bedroom window this morning. They were working together to break up some thin prunings, obviously collecting for a nest. They were both working really hard!
I left the squash to roast while we were out and so the delicious soup was very quick to make for lunch. If you’d like the recipe, you can find it here.
A small packet arrived today – the gift of a DVD of the play ‘Jeremy Visick’, derived from my Dad’s book, that I saw at the beginning of the month and wrote about here. The writer and producer also sent me the script to enjoy at leisure. What a very kind and much appreciated gesture.
Yesterday we collected flat pebbles at Portreath and today LiveWire T wrote kind and loving words on them.
This morning the family went to visit The Poldark Mine and found it fascinating. I couldn’t go as I had to go to my Pilates class which helps me stay mobile! LiveWire J was full of information that he had learned and was very struck by the fact that boys his age had to go down the mine to work! We feel that the time is ripe for him to be given my Dad’s, his Great Grandfather’s novel, Jeremy Visick to read. He has promised to look after it and to tell me how he gets on with it.
LiveWire T has continued to work on her free embroidery and is taking great care with each stitch. This is our last day with them so we will need to finish it off early tomorrow morning before they leave at 9.30.
1 The sun has shone on us today. We took the twenty minute ferry ride from Falmouth to St Mawes and the fourteen of us had lunch together on the terrace at The Rising Sun, looking out to the sea.
2 There were beautiful Agapanthus in abundance in St Mawes.
3 On the way home we had a family pilgrimage to Gwennap Churchyard to see the gravestone that inspired Dad to write his first novel, Jeremy Visick.
No photos today as one of the children fell asleep in the study as soon as we got home and is still there, expected to sleep all night! I’ll add them tomorrow.
