Eden Project Time of Gifts


Last week we went to the Eden Project's Time Of Gifts Winter Festival.

We enjoyed a lovely evening...

It rained, but turned out to be warm for this time of year...

Inside the Mediterranean Biome... 

Hot Air Balloon in the Humid Biome...

The Malaysian House in the Humid Biome...

The campfire outside...

And Sime with his lantern...
(Which he nearly burnt the house down with the other day)!

Our video of the music... We loved this song!

Enjoy!

Wow, an unbeatable venue, for sure!
Hi Kath, Eden's great & as locals we get to buy an annual pass for £5, so we get in free for the rest of the year - which is nice!

Hi Catherine,

I can't believe he lit an outdoor lantern made of paper & wood & left it in the dining room... A few minutes later I heard a crackling noise & put my head around the door - the lantern had gone up in flames & one of the ceiling beams caught fire too!

He's just as nutty as a fruit cake!

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 …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

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?
