Cornwall and Home Ed Madness

We had a fantastic holiday in Cornwall last week courtesy of The Sun (spit) newspaper. Instead of £409 our lovely caravan cost £215 for the whole week. We had a fab time exploring parts of that wonderful county we had never before ventured into. I finally got to go to St Michael's Mount and we had a lovely day on the beach with the gorgeous Claire and her family who were co-incidentally staying nearby. We had one day of rain but otherwise glorious sunshine. The day of rain we spent at the National Seal Centre at Gweek thinking it would be undercover for much of the day. Not so; we got very wet but had a brilliant time anyway and ds1 actually got to feed the seals himself. Our National Trust membership came into its own, and the Seal Centre was the only day out where we had to pay; we went to the aforementioned Mount, Keynance Cove, Glendurgan Gardens, Cornish Mines and Engines, Trerice, Godolphin and, on our journey home, Castle Drogo. It was all rather lovely and none of us wanted to come home. I will post pics later; you will see that my darling babe loves sand almost as much as compost. The nappies, I assure you, were horrific.

Since we got back it's been home ed madness. We've been out practically every day for horse-riding, bowling and park visits. Tomorrow we're going to an art workshop at a rather lovely stately home so I am rather looking forward to that. Busy, busy, busy. But fun. Glad to be back to bloggin' land, anyway, especially now Jackie's begun her fab Miss Read blog. I shall have to get back to reading fiction; I am such a non-fiction addict that I forget how much I actually enjoy fiction until I pick up a book and begin to read. And I do love Miss Read.

Bye for now
