Two belated birthday presents from Rosie (daughter) this afternoon meant all good intentions of doing some painting were postponed in preference for a lazy afternoon spent using my new mug and looking at all the lovely things in this Cath Kidston book. She always buys me such thoughtful presents that I really love - Thomas Hardy is my favourite author, especially his 'Tess of the d'Urbevilles' and I can't get enough books on vintage style! Tonight we are also going to have a belated 'girly' birthday meal out together.
Last weekend we had a lovely day out in Boscastle. I haven't been since 1984 and it was interesting to see how much of the flood damage is still in evidence. For those of you who are non-UK bloggers I am attaching a video of the fateful day in August 2004. Miraculously there were no fatalities.
