Hello!

Apologies for the blog gap – I have either been busy or doing absolutely nothing!

We are now on holiday in Cornwall again – with this view –

We arrived in the drizzle yesterday, but today we have walked 8 miles in beautiful weather!

Sunshine was lovely.

The beach was lovely too.

There is rain forecast for tomorrow so we made the most of today!

Have a super Sunday!

Back in Cornwall!

Hello!

We managed to bag a 3 day last minute break in a self catering apartment in Polzeath!

It’s been hot, but we have done a lot of walking.

20130718-203236.jpg

Plus lots of water drinking and paddling!

The evening sun here is just lovely – I have taken a million pictures!

Hubby says he will paint one – no doubt that will wait until it cools down a bit!

Home tomorrow via the hospital for my head CT scan – fingers crossed it is all okay!

Have a fantastic Friday!

Fresh Air & Exercise

Every day of our holiday we have spent maximum hours out and about! We have walked, run/walked, played Matkot, surfed & hiked – huge fun!

Warm too! I have flip-flop feet!

20130626-100720.jpg

We are determined to keep as fit as we can & make up for some excellent food.

20130626-100838.jpg

Happy & enjoying everyday! Have a terrific day!

Catching Up

Yesterday flew by! We had breakfast in the garden

20130508-101751.jpg

Then went walking – miles of it!

20130508-101818.jpg

Sun, sand & sea!

20130508-101843.jpg

Plus valleys too!

20130508-101912.jpg

Another well earned coffee and cake, then dinner with my lovely brother & sister-in-law, followed by an early night!

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Back in Cornwall!

Hello from beautiful Cornwall.

20130503-204542.jpg

We got up quite late this morning, packed the car and set off just before lunch. I guess that’s one advantage of doing all the packing yesterday, and living just across the boarder!

We stopped at Sainsbury’s for a few provisions, then at The Weir for coffee and a sandwich at lunch , and still got here at 2.30pm! We unpacked and headed out for a walk along the cliff path.

20130503-204849.jpg

So lovely! We have just had an Indian and are now sat, wine in hand at the Oystercatcher looking at this:

What’s not to like? 🙂

I have to admit to not feeling 100% today – my head is numb and very wobbly – but I am full of 3 days worth of chemo! All my food tastes awful – except chocolate (!) so chocolate it is for a while. Still, things will get better as the drugs wear off!

Tomorrow my big brother arrives – it will be great to see him again.

Have a superb Saturday!

Home

We packed up this morning and made our way home across the border from Cornwall to Devon. One last look at the view from our temporary home.

20130315-180155.jpg

We drove home this morning and made it here in time for lunch. As much as I adore Polzeath, it is always nice to come home!

Everything has been put away or washed and now it is time to chill a while and plan our desperately needed shopping trip tomorrow!

Have a super Saturday!

Miles

Just a quick update again – it’s been a beautiful day full of walking.

20130314-201034.jpg

This morning we walked around the coast path to Daymer Bay & back for a spot of lunch and on to the main event – a walk to Pentire Head.

20130314-201138.jpg

That’s all the way around the bay and to the end if the above headland! It’s a long way for me and my plodding! But worth it for the scenery.

20130314-201328.jpg

The dinosaur!

20130314-201350.jpg

All told just shy of 8 miles done today – that’ll do! I will sleep well tonight!

Have a fab Friday – we go home tomorrow – boo!

Chips!

So cold again today we didn’t venture out for long but did visit Padstow.

20130312-195800.jpg

Padstow equals Rick Stein’s fish & chips!

20130312-195847.jpg

That was lunch sorted!

Apart from that, we watched a bit of daytime tv and drank lots of tea! I hope tomorrow is a wee but warmer – there was snow in the air today. Brrrr..

Have a wicked Wednesday!

Snow!

It’s hard to believe we were in the sea on Sunday – today it has snowed! The wind has been extreme in both strength and coldness!

We stayed around the cottage all morning save a quick forage to the Spar shop for supplies – a French stick to have with cheese for lunch and some bacon and eggs to do a fry up for dinner tonight.

20130311-202338.jpg

Despite the cold it looked nice out of the window!

After lunch we headed off to the bright lights of Truro.

20130311-202437.jpg

We spent lots of time inside shops hiding from the cold, and even managed a Nero’s coffee and some black current and apple cake. Nice!

Home and daytime TV was our best option – it is not a day to spend time out and about. Not sure what tomorrow will bring – I just hope it’s a tad warmer!

Have a tremendous Tuesday!

I had to leave this behind today:

20120601-174942.jpg

Bitter sweet – I love that place, but it is nice to be home with our own stuff.

We called at a wildlife sanctuary on the way home for coffee – bunting out already!

20120601-175156.jpg

Now we are home and unpacked and sorted. Today is my last day eating what ever I wanted – tomorrow I am back to Paleo eating.
