Holiday

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!

I’m Melting!

It’s still hot! I just can’t believe how long this heat has gone on! I’m not complaining! Honest!

Yesterday we did the shopping, along the way we purchased two things – a lawn sprinkler (!) and a brand new Audi A1 car!!! Blimey! It won’t be delivered for 4 months, but how exciting is having a new car!

Today we pottered at home and then went for a hot stroll around RHS Rosemoor.

It’s a beautiful place with a stunning rose garden.

20130721-192353.jpg

Oh, how I wish you could smell these!

20130721-192421.jpg

Mmmmm!

20130721-192440.jpg

Beautiful! It was do hot though – the car said 27.5 degrees in the shade! Tomorrow they are talking thundery showers – the garden will be happy!

Have a marvellous Monday!

Back in Cornwall!

Hello!

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

20130718-203154.jpg

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

20130718-203236.jpg

Plus lots of water drinking and paddling!

20130718-203329.jpg

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

20130718-203408.jpg

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!

Quick Holiday

Sorry to have been a bit lacking on the blog front!

On Tuesday we popped down to Cornwall for two days staying at the Metropole in Padstow.

20130712-181655.jpg

We had a lovely room and great view!

20130712-181735.jpg

We did quite a lot of walking and paddling to keep cool!

20130712-181821.jpg

20130712-181839.jpg

We also took a trip on the Jubliee Queen!

20130712-181920.jpg

We saw puffins and seals! So cute!

We ate quite a lot, but we also walked miles, so that isn’t too bad.

Yesterday we left the hotel at mid day and headed straight to Exeter hospital where I had another CT scan and got three dots tattooed on me in anticipation of starting radiotherapy in a couple of weeks.

We saw the consultant again and chatted through the plan, in addition to the 15 days of treatment to the chest tumour we agreed to a further 10 full head treatments. The down side is that I will lose my hair again, but the up side is good evidence that it can prevent tumours forming in the brain. Evidently there is a 60% chance of lung cancer spreading to the brain, but preventative radiotherapy can reduce that by half. I am happy to do anything reasonable to do what I can to get better odds!

Today we popped into town and I drank this!

20130712-182625.jpg

I could do with more of those! Fabulous!

Tomorrow is probably shopping, but we’ll see. Have a super Saturday!

Home Again

After a week of non-stop activity, we are back home and struggling back into a ‘normal’ routine.

Yesterday we drove home via Tintagel and then Boscastle, leaving this lovely place for a while.

20130628-200415.jpg

Now we have to wait until Tuesday when I have an appointment with a radiology specialist to tell us what is happening next. Once we know what is expected of us we will book a weekend in Cornwall. I won a 3 night stay in an auction a while ago, but need to know what our radiotherapy will consist of before I can arrange dates.

We also want to book a couple of nights in London to see the Lowry exhibition at the Tate. 🙂

Tomorrow I have an appointment at the optician too see about contact lenses – I am completely fed up with wearing glasses all the time. The chemo, or maybe the steroids, have really made my eyes poor.

That means a trip to town – so shopping and coffee may be on the cards!

Have a super Saturday!

Cornwall!

We are having a great holiday! The sun has shone and I have walked miles!

20130624-183827.jpg

We have been surfing too, and invested in bats and balls!

20130624-183914.jpg

It’s been exhausting!

20130624-183945.jpg

Today we took the ferry to Padstow and had fish & chips for lunch.

20130624-184030.jpg

We made up for them by walking, an hours surfing and then an hour bat and ball on the beach. I think we worked off all the calories because I am starving again!

Time for this soon –

20130624-184212.jpg

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Back here!

20130621-200905.jpg

Holiday again as it is my birthday tomorrow! We have a cottage booked for the week & it has started sunny and warm.

20130621-201046.jpg

We had a nice walk this morning and then spent most of the afternoon on the beach playing martok (sp?)

20130621-201203.jpg

We paused for coffee at the beach cafe where this chappie stole from the tables!

20130621-201255.jpg

Here’s hoping for more sun tomorrow! Have a superb Saturday!

Home

The end of another lovely holiday!

20130510-181247.jpg

Yesterday was wet and windy, today it was just windy! We came home via a look around Tintagel – a bit too commercial for my liking, but some pretty bits.

20130510-181644.jpg

We got home mid-afternoon so we are now unpacked with the heating on! Tomorrow we must go shopping as the fridge is bare!

Have a super Saturday!

Wild & Windy

Today it has been wet & windy!

20130509-211733.jpg

Wild sea too! To get out of the rain we took a shopping trip to Truro.

20130509-211814.jpg

We did some shopping and quite a lot of drinking!

20130509-211849.jpg

First proper coffee of the week. 🙂

Tonight we have been over to Port Isaac for dinner with my brother & sister-in-law.

20130509-212020.jpg

We spent quite some time taking pictures of each other and the food – which was terrific!

20130509-212103.jpg

If ever you visit – I recommend the food at The Edge – wonderful.

Home tomorrow, via Daymer Bay I think.

Have a fab Friday !

Sun, Sun, Sun

It’s been another cracking day!

20130506-204547.jpg

We walked miles!

20130506-204634.jpg

And it was sunny ALL day!

20130506-204701.jpg

The walk was fab – the coffee and cake at the end almost made it all worth while!

20130506-204745.jpg

This evening we ate at The Point – another lovely place with a view.

20130506-204837.jpg

We had a really good rib eye steak and chips! Oh yes! 🙂 Happy Days!

Have a tremendous Tuesday!
