Joining in with the lovely Amy. Taking time out to enjoy five things from my week.
Or in this case, my day.
Which was lovely.
The eclipse was seen and admired by us all. I didn't take any of the actual event. I just kept snapping at Pops, who looked hilarious in his special gigs.
Mum has been staying for a few days, and today we went to Falmouth. For shopping and an early birthday lunch. I bought some garden twine and stickers. We had fish and chips. With lots of tartare sauce. I love tartare sauce. The flags were all flying at half mast in honour of the town's local policeman who died suddenly last week. In every shop window there was a photo of him with the words "Thanks Andy." He must have been quite a fellow. It was rather moving.
Down at the harbour, we read many plaques with quotes and memories of wars gone past. I loved the 'Britishness' of some. All stiff upper lip, and Tommy bravado.The sunshine was hazy when we arrived, but soon cleared, revealing the gorgeous candy colors of the town's buildings. The water glinted in the harbour and we stood for a while looking over the side at cormorants diving for fish. The sea was crystal clear.
It has been a very busy week, and my weekend lurgy has got worse. I have felt quite sorry for myself, and was so pleased that Mum was here. Not least because she makes the best roast dinners and did all my ironing. Olly has had a fabulous birthday week. It seemed to extend because of Mum's visit. He was spoiled with lots of attention and cuddles. Sam and Alfie found a great many treats in the cupboard. Nanny's know that the way to their grandsons hearts is through hugs and tummies!
Have a lovely weekend people
