A Celebration of Women

What a fabulous afternoon being a part of celebrating the Centenary of some women getting the vote! We all gathered in Mawnan Smith – The Mawnan Smith W I, singers from my choirs, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows and many supporters and we marched along to Trebah Gardens, singing some of the way when we had enough breath! We finished in the amphitheatre  and sang for all the wonderful people who had joined us along the way. Such a wonderful feeling of solidarity, such a deep feeling of community and an acknowledgement that there is still some way to go and that we must carry on where our sisters have fought before.

Beautiful Baby, Trebah and Molls

In the words of my lovely neighbour, Sue, “Well, I think you can call that a triumph!”  We had just left the home of her niece who had let me borrow her beautiful baby boy to try out the Baby Carrier I have been making for refugee parents on Lesbos. L reported it as being very comfortable, feeling very safe and cosy for J and making him feel nearly weightless! So it works! That inspires me to make more! I have materials for two more so that will be my first target. I am hoping that they will get easier and quicker now that I know what I am doing.

I had lunch with  a good friend in the cafe at Trebah Gardens today – delicious lunch and excellent company.

S had left her very sweet little dog in the car while we ate and when let out for her walk, Molls found something very interesting in the hedge.

2   We had some lovely visitors today! L and Choir-baby T are back in Cornwall for a week and spent a happy couple of hours with us this morning.  T now has quite a lot of words and was able to ask for milk and to tell us what he was doing in the garden. He also says, “Cheese!” as soon as he sees the camera pointed in his direction!

3   This evening we went, with friends, to Trebah Gardens to watch The Venus Flower, a dance event performed all the way through the gardens down to the beach. It was a very beautiful production, full of energy and joy. Click on any photo in the gallery for an enlargement.
