A Very Special Wedding

Here is a gallery of photos from last Monday when Mydd and Josh celebrated their marriage at Godrevy Beach, Cornwall. Click on any photo for detail. It was a day so full of love that it was tangible. The air was alive with love and laughter, smiles and serenity. May their life together be long and happy and full of beauty.

Mothers’ Day, Treats and Love

Our lovely kids were all in touch today with cards, calls, chocolates and photographs and an extra rather special gift:   Refuge_parcels_-_mother_s_parcel. Do click on the link to see the important work being done for women less fortunate than those in my family.

It has been another beautiful day so we popped down to Chapel Porth before the crowds! Join our walk at low tide on an almost empty beach.

I send my love to all my lovely readers, be you Mothers or not. I hope you have all had a good day.

World Sleep Day, Sea Otters and A Poem

My lovely Sister-in-law sent me a message from America that today is World Sleep Day. Along with the information, she sent me a photo of a glorious couple of Sea Otters sleeping together. Not my photo of course!

The following poem was published in the Guardian a couple of weeks ago and suits today’s theme. I have some special people in my life for whom this poem is particularly apt and I include myself on occasion here too.

Love, Bosses and A Warmup 

The world is in such great need of love – we can each do our bit and be willing to practise.

This evening my choirs have sung in a very beautiful building, The Alverton Hotel in Truro which was a convent in a previous life. I loved the bosses on the ceiling.

We did our warmup in The Great Hall, another beautiful room.

Family Fun and Angels in Paris

A few hours of fun with our Live Wires and we were off to catch the Eurostar  to Paris!

J is here showing his little cousin how to slide down the banisters!

We have come to Paris on an Angel hunt. We were introduced to this idea by two people we met earlier this year who had just returned from the city having scoured the streets and buildings  looking for Angels and had loved their discovery of streets and lanes where the traveller rarely goes. To help us in our quest we have Rosemary Flannery’s little book, ‘Angels of Paris’.

Can you just imagine our delight when we emerged from the Metro, having walked maybe 50 yards when we came across our first Angel serendipitously on our way to our hotel . Our first so typical view as we came out of the Metro……

….was followed closely by The Lighthouse Angel,  a huge and beautiful creature, smiling graciously over the street below.  To quote from Rosemary Flannery’s charming book, “Its tassel earrings, beaded necklace, ribbon sash and embroidered bag make him a beacon for the passemonterie, or trimmings trade, for which the neighbourhood was known.” Watch this space for more Angels of Paris over the next few days.

We are also here to mark our 50th Anniversary of  first falling in love in October 1966.

Friendship,Wupatki and Sunset at Sedona

We arrived in Flagstaff in time for a delicious lunch and a tour of their enchanting ‘yard’ and didn’t stop talking and catching up until after 6pm when we left our friends whom we hadn’t seen for 35 years!  J gave us a wonderful afternoon tour of the Wupatki Ruins  sharing his love and knowledge of the history and archaeology of the area.

As we drove to Sedona the sun was setting on the red rocks and yet again I was moved to tears by the beauty, already emotional as I was leaving our friends and not knowing when we might meet again. We had no idea when we planned  this trip that P lived near enough for us to visit – beautiful serendipity!

Baby Bird, Kindness and Romance

Only a short walk today and only a quick view of this little bird which we think is a Robin as he had a bright breast that we saw only briefly as he hopped off under the hedge.DSCN4049

These words came my way the other day. Kindness must be the most important quality of any human being. When I first told my parents that I had fallen in love, their first question was, “Is he kind?” Ah, kindness

For those of you  with romance in your hearts and those of you who have been following my posts about the marvellous Man Engine, the following is a true story.  The instigator of the whole fantastical adventure with a mission to tell everyone of the history of Cornish mining chose the end of last event to propose to his girlfriend and the Man Engine went down on one knee! Isn’t that just perfect?! This photo was taken by Mike Newman.
