ISS, Street Art and Hugs

I couldn’t sleep last night and went downstairs soon after 5am. The kitchen was as bright as if there were lights left on and I realised that the half moon was shining in a very clear sky. I stayed for several minutes looking at the stars and then the International Space Station appeared from the right and made its way across the sky. I checked on the website and saw that it was due over at 5.22. Serendipity indeed. I went back to sleep happy!

We are enjoying the street art in our town, encouraging people to wear their masks.I really like this one.

Dear friends from choir drove by today as I was planting bulbs in the front garden. They stopped and came into the back garden for tea, cake and a chat. It was so lovely to see them but we missed our hugs.

Love, Baking and Creating

The LiveWires keep us amused, and busy, all day! It fills my heart up to have them visiting and I just love how a sleepy little girl creeps into bed with me first thing in the morning and snuggles down saying, “I could stay in here for ever!”

Love and Pooh Bear


We made Chocolate Croissants for breakfast and Banana and Raisin Buns for tea.



While I was making the evening meal, LiveWire T amused herself folding paper and made a cat!

Weather, Hip Replacement and Iris Reticulata

We are very lucky here in Cornwall as the Spring continues to develop but I know that lots of my readers from Atlanta, Georgia to Texas, to Vermont, and the far North of Canada are still in the throes of winter, so for you, here are Pooh Bear and Eeyore discussing the wintery weather.

'It's snowing still,' said Eeyore

Hip replacement!

Hip replacement!

I am extremely happy with my hip replacement making little strides like walking upstairs properly and going from strength to strength each day. If you’d like to read the Diary of my Hip Replacement, told as it was, click on the link in the horizontal menu at the top or click here

Pooh Bear, “The Cry of the Tin” and Learning French for Senegal


Pooh Bear

“What day is it,?” asked Pooh.

“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.

“My favourite day,” said Pooh.”

I love Pooh Bear! And I love the fact that he doesn’t know what day it is! I don’t ask – I just use the day’s Guardian!

2   Thanks to David who sent along emails this afternoon with MP3s of our singing from Sunday evening with the Treggies. ‘The Miners’ Anthem’ is such a haunting and beautiful song. It was written for a production called ‘The Cry of Tin’ which, I discovered is “a powerful 90 minute musical documentary drama telling the story of the rise and fall of mining in Cornwall, focusing on its impact on the people and the land.”

The title comes from when the assayer puts the ingot on a bending machine. As the tin flexes it makes an eerie sound from which he judges its value. They call it the Cry of the Tin.”   I love finding things out!

3   French Conversation was hard today! I did learn new vocabulary and I am getting more confident about speaking to Ami’s family when we are in Senegal!
