Only meeeeeeee - back in the land of the living :)
We've just got back from the annual Moog family exodus to north Cornwall.
We had a lovely time with mother-in-law and father-in-law, staying on the farm that we've been to for the past 6 years.
Someone forgot to put in an order for good weather this year but we didn't let that dampen our spirits. How could it with places like this to visit:
Cotehele House and Crackington Haven.
Sandymouth and Widemouth Bay.
There really is nothing we Brits do so well as enjoying a beach whatever the weather. When more sensible folk might stay indoors keeping warm and dry, there we will be, erecting our ineffectual beach shelters, hammering our windbreaks in with huge pebbles and building sandcastles with the rain pouring down our necks, all the while scanning the sky for a tiny hopeful patch of blue.
Moogsdad spent any free time chatting to the farm residents....
....and soaking up the beautiful view from the pigsty.
Whilst I was taking photos of the handquilted throw on our bed!!
(Don't be fooled by the photo - this bed is nowhere near as comfy as it looks, as my aching back can tell you!!!).
All in all a rather lovely week.....but it is so good to be home in our cosy little castle, with our chickens and the Moog (and a very comfy bed!).
