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

Friday procrastination

Yes I'm typing this instead of getting down to making the last few things for Cowslip tomorrow... I woke up after being awake until 5am feeling really jittery, tired but with the need to get on with it.... so I went and got some petrol (which was on my to do list) and I've started… Continue reading Friday procrastination

One year on…

16th July 2017 I wrote: "So tonight we got to see the latest Poldark and The Handmaids Tale, then it's finishing the cleaning, sort out the keys for the Estate Agents, take the last meter readings and lock the door of 57 Eastern Avenue for the last time.  It's been an easy house to live… Continue reading One year on…

It rained and it was good

Dave was up early to go and do a lime plastering job for a customer in town, so I got up eventually and sat down to work out a plan of action for this week to get me ready for the weekend event at Cowslip Workshops.  My 'To Do' list started with *buy carrots* so… Continue reading It rained and it was good

Sunday evening ponder

The problem with thinking is that it can become a dangerous self-destructive force that will take over the logical, factual normal thoughts that keep us on the normal straight path.  Thinking too much makes normal seem so far away.  This has been happening to me today.  I woke up anxious, just a niggle nothing overwhelming,… Continue reading Sunday evening ponder
