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..

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Last night’s Super Moon was lovely to watch. Sadly when we got up at 3am to see the Blood Moon, clouds had almost completely obscured the moon. We just had tantalising glimpses.
2 We had the most delicious breakfast this morning – an eggy bananaey bread sandwich stuffed with fruit including the few blackberries from the garden that I showed you a day or two ago. it is from a Jamie Oliver recipe and was just ambrosia!
3 The sunlight was shining in the weathervane on top of Truro Cathedral this afternoon. We called in to Truro after my six week check-up with the surgeon at Treliske and he is very happy with my progress.
