Home again, home again,jiggetty jig


A friend of ours has invested in "holiday points" - a bit like timeshare - and despite having three holidays in the run up to Christmas she still had points left over so she asked if we would like to use them as they have to be used by Christmas. So we did!

We've spent a lovely few days in Devon & Cornwall. This is where we stayed.



The country club we stayed in held free classes - we went to an oil painting workshop - it was fabulous - we learnt so much.
Oh and we won quiz night - lol!

We have ambled round galleries and visited haunts of old - this is Boscastle.




And we watched the sea, of course :)


And now we are home and I feel refreshed.

Hope you are all well.
L.x.

  2. I am glad you had a good few days, sorry we couldn't meet also. We did wonder if you would be in a flood area.

    1. Hello Elizabeth - another time we will meet :)
      We did come across some flooding - another hour and I think we would not have got to our destination. The last few miles were scary but there was no turning back either so we had to carry on - in the middle of the road- single file.

  3. I've recently found your blog and I've enjoyed reading through all the archives.
    So good to see that you've been in my neck of the woods - I live in Camborne, Cornwall. We live in a relatively high-up area and are therefore not at risk of flooding, thank God. However family and friends have been affected by flooding, although only by difficulties in getting to and from work in Truro.
    (P.S. Your blog has inspired me to keep some sort of 'happiness/thankfulness' record. I'm not sure what format it will take, maybe something like a journal or perhaps a notice board with post-it notes on it highlighting reasons to be cheerful! :) Thankyou.)
