Breakfast, Heron and Storm Warning

We spent another happy few hours having a delicious breakfast and catching up on everything under the sun with our friends at The Heron in Malpas and across the water, we saw a heron! I took the photo through the window on max zoom…..

The eggs may look over-cooked to you – for me, they were perfect!

The rest of the country is covered in snow. We just have lots of rain and very strong winds and so our  Ship’s Barometer overflowed as the pressure dropped.  I love the reflection of the spout in the glass of the porch window.

A View, Colour and Home-Made

How it rained and hailed this morning but we still had lots of fun having breakfast with friends at a favourite venue with the most beautiful view, even without sunshine.

Afterwards we briefly shopped in Truro visiting one of my favourite shops……

I loved the logo on this bag – and this afternoon we made the next two batches of home-made marmalade, another 10lbs or so.

Breakfast, Swans and Kindness

Last day before lockdown and we met a couple of friends at a pub for breakfast! We sat on the terrace with the most idyllic view in front of us, enjoying a delicious Cornish breakfast,  putting the world to rights and soaking up the sun’s rays. It was actually warm and such a tonic.

I love swans, a symbol of grace, needed by us all as we face the next months.

Outside the pub was a barrel (!) of fresh water for thirsty pups. What a lovely idea. We often see dishes of water but this is a step up!

My Favourite Shop, Dinner Out and Malpas

1   Went to my favourite shop today – fabrics, wool, buttons , ribbons – everything a knitter/sewer could possibly want – to buy more wool for the little hoodies I’m knitting for the Grandchildren.

2   Eating out again! We do this so rarely usually but with family here we are having lovely treats day after day. I chose Cornish scallops again – I do love them!

3   After dinner we drove to Malpas along the Truro River – just beautiful!

and a special bonus tonight – the Olympic opening ceremony has been brilliant!
