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!

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!

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!

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 –

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!

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 !

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!

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!

Fabulous!

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

20130504-201207.jpg

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

20130504-201258.jpg

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!

20130504-201503.jpg

Now this –

20130504-201538.jpg

Cheers! Have a smashing Sunday!

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:

20130503-204955.jpg

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!
