Books, Clouds and The Nearly Home Trees

We took a couple of books with us for the Grandbabies (who are now 20 months and not babies at all so LiveWires 5 and 6) and then took LiveWire No 1 shopping in Granollers to choose her own good read. She chose a Wimpy Kid book, stories also loved by her English cousin, LiveWire No 2. We also found more books for the little ones in Catalan and English. These are children who, like their big sister, are growing up speaking Wolof, English and Catalan (and later Spanish too!) It is brilliant to hear them understanding all three languages and responding.

Flying home today was almost entirely fog bound but then the clouds broke up for a few moments and we could see the snow-covered mountains.

If you read my blog regularly you will have seen similar photos before.  All of us who leave Cornwall for whatever length of time and then drive back in, look forward to our first glimpse of the Nearly Home Trees which signals our return to our beloved Cornwall. This was taken at speed!

We love this copse in Devon, just before the border into Cornwall, that signals we are nearly home.

Glass, Pudding and A Surprise

We bought ourselves a present for our Anniversary (51 years today), a beautiful piece showing the Nearly Home Trees that we love so much.

We have come out for a delicious meal cooked by someone else! The dessert we both chose was Chocolate Fondant.

After our scrumptious dessert we were presented with the following which we are saving to enjoy tomorrow.

A Painting, A Poster and The Copse

My lovely Sister, an artist who lives in Hawaii, painted this beautiful, sunny piece and gave me permission to put it on here as one of my beautfulthings today.

We’ve been in Exeter today to have lunch with Daughter No1. This poster about migration was on a lamp-post in the city.

The copse at Cookworthy Knapp means so much to people who have been away from Cornwall, their home, even if only for a day! They tell us that we are nearly home, hence their nickname. Photos are always taken from a moving car.
