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!

Looks like a great day! Is that law about the dogs being wheeled serious?

Hi Molly, That's just Sime being silly - He comes out with lots of rubbish like that!

Top Of The World

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!

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

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 …
