It’s Friday, 25th May. We went on an outing to Falmouth with my sister-in-law in her new car. The day wasn’t too hot and the day wasn’t too cold. The sun wasn’t very bright and the wind wasn’t very strong. We stood on Pendennis Point near Pendennis Castle to look around and eat ice cream. We paddled in the sea by Castle Beach and drove past other beaches. There weren’t many people on the beach today because it’s not the summer hol…

I have walked too far and I have a sore foot again. I am staying home and my husband has gone to Newquay with our guests. They will walk along the beach and the coast. They will see the Huer’s Hut on Towan Head. Perhaps they will eat hevva cake! I have made eight pasties for supper time: four beef pasties and four vegetarian pasties. And now I am sitting in the conservatory, my feet on a footstool.

Tuesday, 22nd May. What a beautiful day! There was a beautiful pheasant on our lawn. He doesn’t have a beautiful voice. In the morning we walked in the countryside with our friends, in the fields above. We could see the sea towards the north, and towards the west we could see St Agnes Beacon. All the fields are planted with corn, perhaps with barley for brewing. We heard skylarks singing.

A lovely start of a lovely week, I hope. We are expecting visitors from New Zealand. That is a very beautiful country. Will they find Cornwall (to be) a very beautiful country too? They are old friends. I met them more than forty years ago. They are coming by train from England. They met my niece in the morning to have coffee, before catching their train. She stayed with them in their house when she was young.

The sun shone morning, noon, afternoon and evening. A prince was married, my husband cut the lawn with his mower and I washed a blanket in the washing machine. It was too hot for me to work in the garden. The blanket dried very quickly on the line. I saw the moon in the blue sky; it’s a crescent now. It is waxing. There was a new moon on 15th May, the first quar…
