Family, Friends & Falmouth

Yesterday, we arranged to meet up with Scarlet, J, KL...
 As well as our tribe at Miss Peapod's in Penryn.

It's an ideal place to sit & chat... 
Which we did again for another 3 hours!

Our kidlets had breakfast & Sal had to go off to work...

Rose & Asa then took Hugo off to see their new flat...

Sime's breakfast  - wilted spinach & mushrooms on toast, with beans & chutney!

We were going to park & float into Falmouth afterwards, but it was £16 per car & it was already 2pm...
So we parked in town - £3.50 for 3 hours.

Sime got a bit snap happy...
An electric road/litter cleaning machine - you can tell we don't get out much!

"And it was this big..."

An ancient Falmouth by-law states that all dogs must be wheeled.

Would you want to eat here?

Scarlet bargain hunting...

A lot drier this week...

How about that for colour co-ordination?
Our summer outfits of course...

We had a fab day, Scarlet & family are just such lovely people & we look forward to seeing them again.

You look like you've known each other forever! Isn't it great that you all met up (twice!).

I for one, love random photos. Keep them coming.

How I would have loved to have met up with you all as well- blogfriends are great in the 'virtual' world, but even better in the real one!!

hey Sime, taking photos of everyday objects and activities makes you a social scientist :-D
Catherine said…
What a terrific day you had! OK ~ the dogs having to be 'wheeled' is a very funny law. Haha!

Wishing you both a very beautiful weekend!

We had a fab day with you. It's hard to believe that it was only yesterday, now that we're safely back in Lancashire.The beans are already in soak!

Hi Angela,

It's great meeting virtual friends & funny to think we all know so much about each other before even meeting - so nice though & we'll definitely keep in touch with Scarlet!

I love catching snaps of life, that exist "between the pages". Kay's the spotter, I'm the recorder! I'll have to do a post of random snaps - I've got lots!

Shepherd's Pie on the cards for tomorrow?

Keep in touch.

Looks like a great day! Is that law about the dogs being wheeled serious?
The Smiths said…
Hi Molly, That's just Sime being silly - He comes out with lots of rubbish like that!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
