Hello!! It seems like ages since I was last here, I almost even forgot I had a blog, or that there was such a thing as blogland, even though I have been poking my nose into Google Reader occasionally over the last few weeks. When last I was here though my batteries were flatter than a flat thing on a flat day. First of all there was Miss L's dress to finish which I did within a hair's breath of the deadline. I learned a whole lotta stuff from making this dress. Namely, never ever use silk crepe again. It's a devil! But it looks lovely don't you think?
And then there was a much needed holiday. Back in April at the Blogerry Picnick, I mentioned to Kitty and Ali that for our holiday this year, we had decided against the Trebbia Valley in Italy in favour of the Tamar Valley in Cornwall. They both laughed out loud as you can imagine and who can blame them given the choice between blazing sunshine or blinding rain. I know, I know .. but look at the view ... don't you think it's worth it?
Especially when the man does cooks tea on a rainy day!
We managed a trip to the local rainforest..
The Eden project. Hmmm... Nice engineering but too crowded. Much better, the real Cornish landscape...
In all it's rugged beauty, even on a cold and windy day...
With each visit to Cornwall I fall in love a little bit more .. I can't wait to go back.
