Checking my watch

(no subject)

I am all ready in holiday mood and I have not even got down to where I am staying. Thursday I arrived at Nora's. Had massive lay-in on Friday so I missed a trip to the pool, but probably felt better for the extra sleep... Good to see Colin rushing about on his new leg. Had a quick visit to see Ron. Then dashed off for a quick visit with Mr North for coffee and Doctor Who, before heading even further west and over the border into Kernow. Arrived at Sue's place with no more trouble then a new roundabout that confused the satnav. Sue's place is amazing. Food drink and more Doctor Who ensued before it was time to head out to (I'm not sure to where, Sue directed) meet B on the train from London, somewhere around 11pm. The class 43 did look a little incongruous sitting at (what looked like in the dark) a tiny Hogwartsesk station. Came back and, the night's driving over, I permitted myself a (some) small glass(es) of wine, While I was introduced to the world of New Zealand comedy "Seven Periods with Mr Gormsby"... Oh dear God it's sooo wrong! But I couldn't stop myself laughing.

I have just got up after an excellent night's sleep and I'm ready to get out and about (after some coffee and toast)... No sign of life from up stairs though... May be I will start banging about until hear signs of life ;-)

I think I am going to have another crack at moving down here. In the past I have had so many problems put in the way of moving down here... but perhaps the time is right at last. And I have a cunning plan that will enable me to live in Cornwall and still travel. Well I will see if I like what I see tomorrow.

Checking my watch

Further West

Arrived down in deepest darkest Cornwall… Managed to leave Sue and B’s place mostly intact apart from a slightly damaged carpet. Feeling somewhat mortified about that.

Found the cottage OK. Very well equipped. As I was unpacking the car a hiker asked me if the steps over a wall opposite the cottage was to footpath to somewhere or other… I had to admit I did’t know on account of arriving there only 5 seconds ago myself.

Had a bath, chucked a few things in the washing machine and watched even more Doctor Who (stage version of Web of Fear) Ta very much Mr North.

Neil just arrived... More later.
