Welly Dogs, Fun and Helping

A delightful day was had by all, half the family going into Truro for shopping and we, with LiveWire T, going into Redruth, enjoying the Welly Dogs, going to Home Ground coffee shop for a treat, playing in the park, chopping the tomatoes for the guacamole for supper and finally learning how to do French knitting.

Daffodils, Decorations and Deer

We were given Daffodils before Christmas and they are still beautiful.

Two of our LiveWires arrived tonight. I found the little Christmas stirrers for their drinks.

I was at the hospital this evening for an MRI on my ankles- the lovely young people were working all evening – and outside the block were a Christmas tree and some charming reindeer.

Boxing Day Blooms

A wild and wet day in the garden with a brief respite for me to take some photos of the bits of colour still in the garden.




The overflowing Sailors’ Barometer indicates the impending downpour.

Frost, Sunlight and Snowmen 

A really heavy frost lay on the ground as we went to Blickling House for a walk and the grass, leaves and fungi had beautiful frosty patterns on them.



I also caught the sun shining through a fallen leaf.

When we were in the garden centre yesterday, B spent her pocket money on some 3D glasses that made all fairy lights appear to have little snowmen around them. It amused us all that my camera was able to look through the glasses and catch the little men in a photo.

English Countryside and Airport Sunset

It’s a five hour train journey from Cornwall to the metropolis and we love every minute, watching the world go by, reading the paper and our novels. Here is a glimpse from the train of our glorious green countryside.

Tomorrow we fly to Portugal for a walking holiday, four nights in Porto and five nights in Lisbon. The sunset from our hotel room was quite dramatic.

Independence, Flowerpots and Treats

We love walking to school with the children. Some of the best conversations are had on these journeys. It is also lovely to see them striding out with such confidence.

Down one of the lanes to school we spotted strange creatures in the trees over a fence.

T had art club after school today so it was J’s turn for a treat at the lovely French cafe we like to frequent when in North Finchley, Joie de Vie.

 Roses, Leaves and Sweet Potato Salad

What a scorcher, as they say! We don’t get heat quite like London heat in the far South West of the U.K where we live. We have melted the day away here! We all found respite in the coolth of the park where the children played, we all enjoyed ice creams and I enjoyed the scent of the roses and the sunlight through the Copper Beech leaves.

Supper was roast chicken and a delicious mix of salads including Sweet Potato Salad presented beautifully in one of Nicky Stephenson’s gorgeous pots.
