We have just spent a wonderful few days in lovely Cornwall - one of my favourite places. Most of our time was spent out and about with Ruth (one of my stepdaughters) - the beaches (we visited several) were a great favourite with Otto who had a very active holiday. We also had a trip to Kennall Vale, where Dick decided to see if he could get behind the waterfall - he did, although he did come out quite damp. We also had our usual trip to St Ives - it's so picturesque and it seems to be the world capital of pasty shops, not a bad thing, and of course we tried some.
We were lucky to have a hot tub at our cottage with a view across the valley, sheer luxury. I did feel that I may have been in for too long yesterday evening though, because Dick came out with bay leaves and Bisto & asked if I was nearly cooked! I got out sharpish in case he turned the heat up to simmer.
Due to being away from home I haven't made any jewellery this week, but I have been sourcing new beads including sterling silver earring beads with a natural theme, birds, bees and shells etc, so there will be new stock arriving on the website very shortly!
