Tag Archives: The Fate of Jeremy Visick by David Wiseman
When our lovely friend brought some scones and Cornish cream the other day, we assumed we had some strawberry jam in the freezer but no! We had to use bought jam. 🙂 In our delivery yesterday we bought some beautiful English strawberries and today I have started making the no-cook freezer jam which tastes so fresh and delicious.
We went to visit Gwennap Churchyard in a very heavy rainstorm this afternoon as we have a plan which I shall tell you about if it comes to fruition. On the noticeboard just outside the Churchyard, there is reference to the gravestone that was the inspiration for one of my Dad’s books, The Fate of Jeremy Visick.
Today I was sent a link to an excerpt from the play The Fate of Jeremy Visick and thought you might like to see it. My review of the play was in yesterday’s blog.
I love it when our fresh eggs from friends’ chickens have straw on them!
Our Clematis Armandii is heavy with buds, the best it has ever been. We’re looking forward to the flowers.
I was told that our Tinners’ Hounds (known affectionately by locals as Welly Dogs) in town had poppies for Remembrance tied around their necks so we took a walk into Redruth to find them. For those of you who would like to know more about our Welly Dogs, do follow this link to the sculptor’s blog. I have only just found it and it is a delight to read about their origin.
Fastened to one of the dogs was a notice warning people to look in their bonfires this weekend (It’s Bonfire Night on 5th November) to make sure no hedgehogs have taken shelter there.
Today is Day 4 of the Book Challenge I am taking part in elsewhere and my choice for today of a book that I love is ‘The Fate of Jeremy Visick’ by David Wiseman, my Dad.
