Five go to Smugglers top...

Home and Garden Outings

Heres the cottage where we stayed…
Little people battled through thick undergrowth on cliff pathes…
The scent of Bluebells filled every path we walked…
Sea Campions smiled at us as we passed them by…
Huge clumps of Thrift covered the cliffs and path edges like pale pink clouds…
There was a lot of gazing…
Morning, Noon and Night…
This is the sun going down behind Mount St Michaels one evening.
And here on another day, the same wonderful property swathed in misty fog.
Special toys came for a holiday too…
Every available rock pool was searched top to bottom…
Seagulls circled high overhead, warning us to stay away from their nests…
We even found this nest below with no eggs or sitting bird. Where were they???
 
And best of all we found HUGE caves (look how tiny we look stood at the mouth), dark and deep, but all the smuggled brandy and rum was gone… did they smuggle tea bags?


BUT the bestest, bestest bit of all was that we came home again!
It was a wonderful holiday! We were so lucky with the weather. We had fun together and it was a special time for that alone. The children played games, went boating, swimming and fishing everyday. I drank vast amounts of tea and finished a hat, and my Little Sparrow cardigan. I also started a new hexagon blanket and a pullyover to match the cardi, so it was a productive week. I even made a dress for the shop today!


Last notes:


*I cant fit everything in this post so will do another, BUT the children brought home an owlet today. Ive taken pictures… Its unbelievable.
*My Son is hatching ducklings in his bedroom…. dont even ask! Ive got a day old one here with me next to the laptop keeping warm. The house is cheeping… More are apparently due to night and he has set his alarm clock to keep checking the rapidly cracking eggs.
*Ive so far washed 9 loads of dirty holiday washing… thank god the sun is shining to dry it all. Ive got 3 left to do tommorow, together with a load of handwash woollens.
*Back to work tommorow, a million emails to see to and orders to package up ready to send on Tuesday.
*Sshhhh, the ducklings gone to sleep…






Mr Fairysteps is up under the stars in the garden bath… I think I may go and join him for a soak under the warm night sky.


Its good to be home… I missed my nest!
