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.


Lifeguards & ice cream!


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

Have a super Sunday!

Back in Cornwall!


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.


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!

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.


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!

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


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


It’s been exhausting!


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


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 –


Have a terrific Tuesday!

Back here!


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


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


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


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

Wild & Windy

Today it has been wet & windy!


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


We did some shopping and quite a lot of drinking!


First proper coffee of the week. 🙂

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


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


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

Home tomorrow, via Daymer Bay I think.

Have a fab Friday !

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!

Sun, Sun, Sun

It’s been another cracking day!


We walked miles!


And it was sunny ALL day!


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


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


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

Have a tremendous Tuesday!

What a fantastic day we have had! If this place isn’t amazing enough –


Today we were joined by my big brother, sister-in-law and dogs!


We walked, ate, drank and walked a whole lot more! They have now headed off to stay at a cottage in Port Isaac, but we are meeting up again tomorrow night for dinner. It is so good to see them again.

My two best men!


Now this –


Cheers! Have a smashing Sunday!

Back in Cornwall!

Hello from beautiful Cornwall.


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.


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!
