Spotlight Saturday - Cornwall

Oops! No blog post last weeekend, sorry about that! We actually were in Cornwall visiting Hugh's sister. We left here Thursday evening and drove as far as Frome and stayed in the Premier Inn there. The room was fine - the receptionist and the lack of breakfast not so! However, we went on Trip Advisor and found the most fantastic little cafe attached to a farm shop and had a brilliant fry-up - not something I would usually do!

We got down to the house just after midday.

We had a nice time relaxing and chatting with Hugh's sister and husband over some lunch then Hugh and I popped to Trago Mills to do a little bit of shopping. We always try to drop in when we are down there as there are usually bargains to be found! I managed to get 30 page protectors for my 12x12 albums and 2 packs of Thickers for a ridiculously cheap amount!

Saturday dawned sunny - yes! Sunny in Cornwall! A complete miracle for us! We have a lazy morning and then in the afternoon went up to Minions for a walk on the moor to Gold Diggings - a walk we used to do with the children when they were little. We were accompanied by Hugh's sister, niece and the dog Ruby!

In the evening we went into Liskeard to 'Daddios' for a really nice meal with Hugh's sister and husband - no photos I'm afraid - too busy eating!

Sunday it was still sunny and after a leisurely breakfast we packed up the car and left just before lunchtime. We had a really easy journey home and dropped in on Ben and Amy for a cup of coffee which was really nice.

This weekend it is Ben's birthday so we are back down to Reading with Penny and my parents to help him celebrate with a barbecue. I hope that whatever you are up to this weekend it is relaxing and enjoyable.

I've only been to Cornwall once, and your photos really show it off so well ... Looks like a lovely relaxing weekend (despite the travelling), and how nice to be able to fit in seeing as many family members as possible!
