Poppy, Falmouth and Jools Holland

I love the veining on the back of the white poppy. 

We went to Falmouth this evening for a Jools Holland Big Band gig and had our supper overlooking the harbour. 

Just after we arrived at the gig in Events Square I tripped over the cable cover and now have a knee the size of a rugby ball! I was very well looked after by a Paramedic, Gary, and a lovely kind woman called Sue Hollingford (I think) who turned out to be a nurse. If anyone local   reading this knows her, please tell her thank you again from me. We enjoyed most of the concert which was fabulous! I love watching Jools’ hands on the piano keys.

A Old Friend, The Kindness of Strangers and Clouds in Cornwall

1   A beautiful thing – Kanu, an old friend of D’s, took time out of his day today to come to the train station especially to meet us, the parents of his much loved friend. It was lovely to meet him.

2   The train to the airport was running so late we were in danger of missing our flight. A young woman also waiting to get to the airport had called her friend and asked him to drive her there and she had overheard our concerned conversations about missing the flight. This lovely couple, strangers to us all, invited us to have a lift with them and so we made the flights in good time. They probably won’t ever read this but, just in case or in case some one who does know them reads this  – thank you so much, Jody from Dublin and Mark from Barcelona, for your kindness to strangers.

3   Driving home through Devon and into Cornwall, the skies grew ever more threatening and then, fleetingly, this lovely formation as the blue reappeared.

Beautiful clouds as we drove into Cornwall
