  1. Sue and Jim, I have not checked your blog since arriving in Cornwall, and now I am back home in CA with jet lag, so decided to look back over all your May posts. What a month you have had! Firstly, I was very sad to read about Tilly, and I know it is hard when old pets begin to struggle. Your decision to go to the vet's office is one of the hardest that owners take.
    Secondly, I do hope your knee will improve, as you must enjoy seeing all the wild flowers at this time of year. We thought Cornwall looked especially beautiful this spring - maybe all that rain helped the flowering? We were lucky to have good weather most of the trip, and I can only think of two wet days, but one was a corker! We actually were at the Rock Pool Cafe in Mousehole, and the sea was wild. We didn't get to go to as many places that I like to visit such as Enys as we had my youngest with us and her partner, and they seemed to want to stay around the Helford. We also had work ongoing at the cottage, and like you, I did my knees in cleaning out kitchen cupboards that were a bit cobwebby after the winter. I should know better and use a kneeling pad, or better still sit on my backside!
    Thirdly, lucky people who bought the barn as it is in a superb position and you have maintained it in tiptop condition. I am sure they will enjoy those views of the bay and Mount.
    Sorry for the long comment, but wanted to touch base with you, and also to say I envy you being based in Cornwall all the time. Our trips go past so fast and I am always sad to turn the key and drive away.

    1. Hi Lynn, thanks for your kind words, it was time for Tilly as she's gone downhill and wasn't happy. As for my knee, I suspect the only way will be for another hopefully half-knee replacement. Can get around the house, but as soon as I try to walk further it's agony. Still I'm lucky that we live in such a wonderful place that I can see so much from home. Will be good to be able to relax a bit now the barn is sold - I take it far too seriously lol Sue
