The One Year Anniversary

Twelve months, 365 days, that is the time that we have now lived in Lostwithiel.  Exactly! And what a lovely day it's been. But first Sunday and Monday need to be visited! Sunday: We got up late and lazed around a lot.  Dave was outside and Chris was over the other side of the river,… Continue reading The One Year Anniversary

Penzance, Flame and home

An early start on a dull misty morning and we were on the road for 7.20am.  Straight up to the A30 and on to the long back bone of Cornwall heading west towards Redruth.  The clouds were hanging low and then the clouds turned to fog, lifting slightly to hover just in the canopy of… Continue reading Penzance, Flame and home

The Friday I didn’t go to St Ives

Dave thought the scooter run today was to St Ives and it turned out that the impulse bought train ticket I bought to meet them there was a waste, as the run was always planned to go to Coverack. After my busy day yesterday and with a fair down in Penzance tomorrow I decided not… Continue reading The Friday I didn’t go to St Ives

A busy couple of days!

I had a long list of things to do... including re-doing my CV - BORING!  What a joy it was to find one I'd updated early 2017.... just a tweek or two and it was done.  Tuesday was meant to be the day I collected the sketchbooks from the printers.... unfortunately they were still battling… Continue reading A busy couple of days!

Sunday when we didn’t go to a Festival..

I've loved the rain we've had but the down side is that it was too wet for me to spend a day at the Port Elliot Festival.  The weather was meant to improve in the afternoon so we kept thinking we might go - in a minute the weather will brighter - but alas the… Continue reading Sunday when we didn’t go to a Festival..

Not a lot to see here…

...and not a lot to write about either. So shall we talk about the weather? We've had rain, lots of rain.  Cool rain, refreshing rain, soaking-you-through-to-the-skin rain.  But I didn't hear anybody moan. So what did we do today, apart from watching the rain?  Well we went down and sat in Homefront and watched the… Continue reading Not a lot to see here…

Thursday was good!

Lovely day full of discoveries and nice people. First the journey to Liskeard... normally this is an easy peasy 15 to 20 mins at the most, today I literally turned out of Brunel Quays and the safety barriers were descending and some one had already come over the bridge and so I was boxed in. … Continue reading Thursday was good!

Book Club and Frankenstein

I failed!  I couldn't read past Chapter 4, and I was looking forward to this 200 yr old classic novel.  It was a classic error of poor time management and believing I could read the flowery language easily in 2 days.  I began the book with excitement and anticipation, and really enjoyed the beginning which… Continue reading Book Club and Frankenstein

The start of the week

.. and the start of the sketches turning into something bigger. I had 3 meetings planned today and so I first went down the printers on Lostwithiel to meet up with Roy and Julian to discuss scanning the whole of the 3 sketch books and allowing me to decide later on what to print and… Continue reading The start of the week

Cowslip Workshops weekend

The alarm was exceedingly early on Saturday morning.  It was even a little dark when I looked out the window - however that was because it was raining not because it was THAT early! The car was all packed and we headed off up towards the A30.  Dave drove as I was exhausted, I was… Continue reading Cowslip Workshops weekend
