This week has been quiet and I think we have found our rhythm into rural life. Daily coffee shop visits & buying our fruit & veg from little stalls at the road side & paying into an honesty box – I Iove that! It has been so warm & feels nothing like October / November its so bright and feels more like Spring. I’m sure the colder weather is on its way.
We are driving up to Manchester & then on to Scotland at the end of the month so we are trying to get all our work up to date so we can enjoy spending time with family & friends. We are spending Christmas back here in Cornwall which will be our first Christmas just the two of us in 15 years. We are usually the ones driving up the motorway on Christmas Eve / Boxing Day on a 600 mile round trip to visit family and this year we want a quiet low key Christmas just the two of us in our own home. Bliss.
There hasn’t been too much time for exploring this past week but we did manage to head a couple of miles up the road to visit Lostwithiel which is a really small village with so many antique shops. My dad would love it there. The weather wasn’t that good but we still managed to have a good look and I’m now lusting after so many antique dressers and kitchen tables, it might develop into an expensive addiction
The shops down here are limited to say the least, well I am used to shopping in Manchester so I’m becoming quite the online shopping master. Although my postman isn’t as impressed with my skills!
I’m really enjoying exploring Cornwall and if you have any suggestions of places I must see then let me know.
We are starting to get in to our groove in Cornwall, and have found our perfect spot for coffee everyday and favourite evening walk (we are creatures of habit). This week I also turned 37, because we had just spent a fortune on the move we kept celebrations low key and took a trip to Polkerris and Fowey. We have been before a couple of years ago and it is so close to where we live so it was nice just to pop there for a couple of hours. It started off a little cloudy but turned into such a beautiful sunny morning it was so nice to spend some time by the river and relax.
I don’t think I will ever get tired of seeing the sea or the beautiful white wash cottages.
This week has been mostly trying to find a home for all my stuff, the house itself is quite big but there are no wardrobes or airing cupboard and the under stairs cupboard is hiding all the boxes I am yet to unpack. So I have been hunting out storage solutions and pinning lots of ideas on Pinterest. I have a beauty / skincare nightmare that needs organising and my fridge freezer was delivered with a massive dent in the side. Thanks Argos! I now have to wait 2 weeks for a replacement.
The weather on the other hand has been beautiful again and we are really enjoying getting out and about, we’re going to visit Polkerris next week because I have heard its a beautiful village right on the beach. So that should be lovely. We stayed pretty close to home this past week because we had to be home for all the deliveries, so much like last week here are a few photos from our local area.
