Hat Saturday

Work has slowed down & it's wonderful!
We've had 2 whole days pottering about at home & it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Tomorrow, we're heading up to Stoke for a few days, where we'll be staying in a warm hotel room.

Unlike here where it's very cold... Shower time, in particular has become quite a challenge, as our bathroom is freezing.  
One consolation though - we have discovered we can hit some really high notes when singing our favourite opera pieces & our pogoing has taken on new heights! 

We're still determined to get through the Winter without our heating & thanks to Rose...

We're doing it in style!
(She left them behind when she moved)

Time for bed & see you all soon.

Aren't you worried about burst pipes? Our heating is on a thermostat which only kicks in when the temperature falls below 18 degrees. I've taken to sitting on the sofa wrapped up in a fleece blanket to keep me cosy.

Gai - it very rarely gets below 4c in our part of Cornwall, but if it does - we might re-consider!

Mel & Sooz - thank you, we have thermal underwear & hot water bottles, so we're fine!

Kath - wait till we get on our home brew over Christmas...

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
