Cathedral, Hedgehog and A House

Truro Cathedral was looking beautiful in the sunshine today.

There are hedgehogs on the Trafalgar roundabout!

LiveWire No2 has been talking about having a guinea pig as a pet. Today we saw a lovely house to keep it/them in.

LiveWires, Thunder Sky and Our Station

I enjoy getting the beds ready for a LiveWire visit. The duvet covers were made by my Mum many years ago and I love the fact that the LiveWires’ Great Granny made their bed covers.  ClothKitty,  made  by me  about  40  years ago, a Wild Thing  and  Bagpuss  await  LiveWire  No  4’s  arrival  tomorrow..

Heavy showers were threatened in Truro today but the squirrel on top of the spire still glowed.

Buying train tickets today, I was delighted to spot this planter on the platform.

Travelling to Visit the LiveWires

We love the long train journey to London. After the hoohah of getting ready, the moment we step on the train we begin our adventure which starts with three days in London with family……..  Click on any photo for the captions and a bigger view.

We left Cornwall in 10C and arrived  in London to 25C! Stepping off the air-conditioned train was like stepping off a plane in Greece!    Last night we had no WiFi hence the late post.

Peace, Blue Sky and Cathedral Spires

The sun coming through the window as I arrived in the kitchen this morning cast a shadow of Peace on the blind.

There has been a glorious blue sky all day.

Truro Cathedral is always beautiful , particularly so in the Spring sunshine.

New Baby, Cornish Cream Tea and Truro’s Flowers

We have a baby foal in the back field. We think he must have been born last night or even this morning while we were out as he is still a bit wobbly. Just look at his long legs and his beautiful perky ears. His Mum is staying very close whenever he takes a step away from her.DSCN4086 (1)

I loved the knitted strawberries on this cream tea display in a bakery in Truro.

The hanging flower baskets in Truro are fabulous again this year. Every corner turned shows more beautiful planting.These are in front of the Cathedral. A big thank you to the people who plant and look after these gorgeous displays.

Lovely People, Pink Laces and Cornwall

As well as finding many beautiful things in the last few days, I have made a couple of observations while getting about using a crutch in London –  1. The city is full of kind,  considerate and helpful people.  2. Travelling about by bus and tube and on foot is so very difficult when one is, albeit temporarily, disabled. Pavements are uneven, there are stairs everywhere and the buses are wobbly! It has been a case of, take a walk in someone else’s shoes. 

Here I have tied T’s pretty pink laces just before we left for our six hour journey home after a very busy and happy week.


I’ve often shown you the beauty of the Cornish coastline. Today here is some of the beauty of the county as seen from the train.

Lunchtime Concert, Rose Window and My Scarf

What a lovely concert in the beautiful Truro Cathedral this lunchtime!  Here is one of our songs which I hope you will enjoy. It is ‘This is My Cornwall’ by Harry Glasson and is almost our Cornish anthem! Thank you to the lovely Mr S for the recording.

We were looking down the cathedral towards the Rose window and at one point the sun came through though I didn’t catch it then as we were singing! The photo was taken as we were leaving.

You will have seen that we all wear black with some splashes of red for our choir performances. This scarf is my new accessory for performances. I bought it specially for the wedding of one of our members for when we sang at her wedding in December and I love it!
