Bank Holiday Bits

A Bank Holiday weekend in Cornwall was wonderful medicine for the blahs - there was sunshine on a village fete: Though never fear there was plenty of rain, to remind you it was a Bank Holiday weekend in Cornwall. Time was spent on the beach nevertheless, and indoors there was the soft summer scent of Mama grown sweet peas.We returned to find we had left brilliant blue skies and sunshine in Oxford but I don't mind so much as at least the rainy days meant plenty of knitting was done.

Cornwall looks so ... British! Makes me want to go home and curl up with a good British novel.

Where in Cornwall were you? I have been away from my beloved Cornwall for 3 weeks and I'm positively homesick (and I'm not even British, just happened to live and like it there)
