Four Seasons

Today has proverbially been the four seasons, everything from wind, rain, snow, hail, sleet, ice and frost has passed by my doors.

A quick trip into Redruth saw me tucking into a turkey and cranberry pasty from Rowes, and it was as good as it sounded. I had been sent on an errand to get some stripey tights but to no avail, still I did manage to come away with a fetching pair of stripey leg warmers; all that needs to come back now is the 80's power pads in the shoulders for a real retro feel.

I had a quick look out for a memento to remind me of my times at the University of the Back of Beyond as they had taken a collection out on my departure and I am torn between a piece of cornish tin or a painting/photograph. I have a couple of pictures from back up country, one of the village church and the school which I brought for my dad one Christmas and Birthday but I am sure I will come up with the right goods eventually.

Back in my nice, almost warm caravan, looking out at the rain, I remembered last night hearing the helicopters flying overhead; sadly it was to the coach accident near Hayle due to the dangerous conditions on the roads last night when two women were killed and many will carry injuries to remind them. Still compared to the rest of Britain, Cornwall has had it relatively quieter and the weather forecast for the next few days is for milder weather.
