And there are always silver linings in every grey cloud. Not being able to physically do what I usually do, has allowed me instead to indulge in a little light reading and I have discovered some splendid books, A Cat, a Hat and a Piece of String, The Prisoner of Heaven, Foal's Bread, The Man who Forgot his Wife, The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris and the most recent read, Falling in Honey - which couldn't fail to put one in the right mood for summer - I even managed to finish it in a sunny spot in the garden whilst eating breakfast and having a coffee. What could be better!
This last weekend, as well as moving the hot water shower out of the campsite paddock, to be replaced by a cold water shower beside the tap and sink......but do not fear campers the hot water shower will still be available, but is to be repositioned in the wooded glade alongside a second tap and sink. We also managed to get down to the beach at Hayle, in front of the Surf Lifesaving Club, for the youngest son to have a paddle board. Admittedly he wore a winter rash vest and a winter wetsuit, boots and hat, but he informs me "it wasn't even cold mum!" It was a glorious, mild and sunny april day.
And what better way to finish a perfect day, but with the first barbeque of the year and a sunset over St Ives.............purrfect! Putting us all in a very optimistic mood for the summer to come...........
P.S. also got time to develop a new look blog, hope you like it.
