Loe Bar and Chyvarloe

Saturday, 8th August 2015

Hello

After a sluggish start I suddenly found some get up and go and announced a local ramble to Loe Pool.  Mr RR remembered being told about a path to some woods on the far side of the pool where, at dusk, badgers can be seen.  Despite it being 9.30 in the morning we decided to hunt out said woods, so that if we felt so inclined we could go back and spot badgers at nightfall one day!

Penrose Top Path

Thursday, 28th May 2015

Hello

The Way Through the Woods…

Monday, 4th May 2015 (Day 1, week 18)

Aiming to walk 1000 miles in a year

Total so far: 331.7 miles (4.6 miles this week)

All About the Colour

Friday, 13th March 2015 (Day 5, Week 10)

Hello,

I’ve got my head full of colour today.

I went out for coffee this morning (thank you Ms D and Ms S!) and had a lovely lemon poppy seed cake full of a raspberry pink sauce, with raspberries on top. Then I went to the fabric shop and bought some rich red cottons in two different shades – I couldn’t make up my mind which one to have – anyway you can never have too much fabric! At home I sat in the yellow conservatory and looked out at the yellow daffodils in the garden.

I’m not usually a yellow person, but I seem to quite like it lately – as long as I don’t have to wear it! Continue reading
