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.

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.
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.
On our walk this afternoon, J, LiveWire2, was on a mission to find beautiful things for me. First was this tiny feather which he held very carefully so that it didn’t blow away.
We are having three nights away on a 3 for 2 deal for the lovely Mr S’s birthday. We are only 40 minutes from home in a hotel overlooking the sea and with the coastal path moments away. Today we did a circular walk of a couple of hours on the path around The Lizard. Our room is lovely, we have watched boats go by, seen the sunset and the lighthouse light become brighter and now it’s time for dinner!
We have a very precious twenty four hours with Not-quite-Littlest-LiveWire and we have had a lovely day, reading stories, playing hide and seek, rooting through the old toys and stomping through puddles.
Getting ready for our walk, B happened upon a nearly finished hat and decided to wear it anyway. It fitted beautifully around her plait.
This was a wonderful new way to cook cauliflower, covered with a Romescu sauce and roasted, sitting on a bed of red onions and sun dried tomatoes. Delicious!
I made Avocado humus for lunch yesterday and usually throw the liquid from the chickpeas out but I had heard of making meringues with it so I looked it up and, hey presto, mini red fruit pavlovas for desert! Not an egg in sight but, as we are not vegan, we did put creme fraiche on top!
We have new buses in Cornwall and I really like following them as they all have different slogans painted on the back. This one was at the bus stop on the steep hill near the station, hence the angle.
