Well here we are home again after our week away in Cornwall.
Please note this wonderful pink cottage isn't our home ~ oh if only! It was one of the beautiful cottages in St. Mawes but I think I will have to do a post on just those pretty cottages alone at a later date.
We had a lovely week. Had mixed weather, some lovely hot & sunny days & then some horrid rainy ones too ~ hey ho that's the British summer for you isn't it?
We tried to fit as much in as possible and visited lots of the wonderful places to visit in Cornwall & of course ate & drank far too much and now we are in desperate need to diet but that can probably wait until Monday!!!
Needing time this weekend to relax & recover from such a hectic holiday ~ does anyone else ever feel they actually need a lovely relaxing holiday to recover from a holiday? Although last night I did have a wonderful long soak in the bath, popped on a pair of cute & comfy pj's & we had nibbles whilst sipping Pimms Royale (Champagne & Pimms) & watched a Miss Marple ~ just perfect!
Of course today I'm on with the huge amount of washing that needs to be done & the weather isn't being kind to me, I've already hung a load out on the line, in bright sunshine I may add, only to have to dash & collect it all in again 2 minutes later as it was absolutely pouring down I got soaked & then of course once I came back inside with a basket full of wet laundry, bright sunshine again! Oh I could spit! (Oh I do love that old fashioned phrase ~ note to self: use it more often!) Oh just looked outside again & it is raining again and the washing machine has just finished another load, nice!
Anyhoo, it's back to business with the shop & it certainly doesn't stop as 30 minutes after I opened again 2 orders came so it's back to work for me for sure.
It certainly is lovely to be home again though although thoughts are creeping in about when we shall be off on our travels once again ...
