Jubilee Wharf

Yesterday it was cold, but sunny & we had to take Hugo to a circus meeting at Jubilee Wharf. Normally, we would relish popping into Miss Peapod's, but in our quest to save money, we refrained...

We did manage to call on Rose & Asa - we got to see their "Pot Of Gold" which they have started for our family holiday next year. We also briefly caught up with Sal, who was working, but nice to get the chance to say hello...

Last night, we had the coldest night since last winter, so we slept in long johns & thermal tops... We even had to get up & find an extra blanket. Must have been the clear sky!

Cold again tonight & although it's not nice, we all agree that the wood burner has made a massive difference - it's just wonderful!

Hi you guys its been freezing here talk about brass monkeys. I have the hot water bottle two quilts on top of the duvet cover and then dressing gowns flung on top plus the hot water bottle keeps me nice and warm. Reminds me of when we were little and used to go to bed dressed in thick wincyette pjs, thick socks, jumpers, dressing gowns, blankets and quilts and hot water bottles days when you only had one fire in the house if you were lucky and used to get dressed in front of the fire and have steaming bowls of porridge for breakfast cold but happy days. Would kill for an Aga and a wood burner. Hope you guys are okay and ready for Christmas utter bedlam here as usual.

Take care

Cold here too, so I gave in and put the heating on after the sun had set. I bought a couple of long sleeved thermal tops and wear those to bed -teamed with my fleecy pyjama bottoms and fluffy socks I'm toasty warm, and occasionally wake up too hot- but that could be down to my age! You did well to ignore the temptation of Miss Peapod's!

Yes, it's been freezing this week!

A stove makes such a difference!

We only have our stove and one storage heater in our little cottage.

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?
