My last post of the week, is inspired by the marvellous Gillian, who missed her weekly happy post. I miss mine too. So I'm jumping on the happy band wagon.
We have been blessed with the most wonderful weather in St Ives this week. I've said before that May is my favourite month. one reason is that the beaches are still empty. Pops and I have been to the Harbour beach and Porthmeor this week. We played in the sea, inspected rock pools, made sand castles, looked for sea glass and ate our lunch on a beach towel. The sand here is white and clean. The sea is turquoise. My legs are lily white (hence the jeans). But my face is brown and freckly.
This is a corner of the garden that I shall be looking after. I am being paid! I am quite nervous, because I want to do my best and not destroy what is already there. But I am also really excited by it. It is a small courtyard garden, and I am to look after it, tend it and grow things in it. I am on cloud nine!
Some radishes from the garden. I shall be picking salad leaves later. We are having a barbecue this evening. The whole of West Cornwall is too, apparently. We are planning another one on the beach tomorrow. Olly wants to go surfing. I am buying a wetsuit, and taking the plunge with him.
I want to share this book with you. Beautifully written. Gorgeous photography. Inspiring for a person like me who has battled with depression over the years.
Some of the broken pottery that I have been collecting while searching the beaches for treasure. I only pick up bits that have blue on them. I particularly love the triangular piece bottom centre. I am thinking of making something with them in the future. Not sure what yet.
It's been a week of posts for me. I'd like to thank everyone who have commented or started to follow my blog. It is a constant happy in my life. How I ever thought I could junk it, I do not know. I have an evening to myself tomorrow. Sam, Alf and Marc are off to the flicks. I aim to catch up on your posts, and visit those of you that have commented here this week.
Have a wonderful weekend, burnt sausages and all!
