Hello you lovely lot. All fine and dandy I hope?
So today Olly and I drove to an unfamiliar part of Cornwall, and met up with Christina, whose blog A Colourful Life, has long been a favourite of mine. If you haven't already, you should pop over and say hello.
The weather in Cornwall has been decidedly mixed, and today was no exception. In fact I was woken up early this morning by the most torrential downpour. The night before, I had packed a bag full of sun cream and swimming shorts. This morning, I re-packed with wellies and waterproofs. As Olly and I drove from one side of Cornwall to the other, I was struck by how the landscape was devoid of colour. There were no blue hues from sea and sky. Nor any verdant green hedgerows to admire. It was all a bit murky and drab.
Looking at the above pictures now, I am struck by the three very colourful boys that take centre stage. And it's not just their brightly coloured coats, although I did think that was rather cute. The photos give an indication of their colourful personalities, fizzing energy, inclusivity, happiness and zest for life. They just got on with hanging out together, and I loved that. They were three mad pops of colour, and they more than made up for the slate grey seas and sombre skies.
I can't believe I didn't think to get a picture of Christina and I together. It was an absolute pleasure to meet her, and her family. Olly and I were made to feel so welcome, with homemade scones, cups of tea and enthusiastic (and very loud) games around the table.
What a lovely way to start our summer holidays.
(I shall be away from here for about a week).
