My phone rang this week and it was a friend I haven’t seen since April on our way home from Norfolk. She was on the lookout for a bed for the night after dropping her foster daughter off for a riding holiday near Redruth. The following morning very early she and her spaniel Willow were flying by helicopter to the Scilly Isles and naturally she thought of me!
This afternoon I also had a call from Paul who wanted to park outside our garage as he was cycling the Coast to Coast route. As the space was ear-marked for Debbie I found him somewhere else to park, wished him luck and waited for him to return. When he did he was covered in mud and his bike was filthy too. He had, however, had a brilliant ride!!
Debbie arrived late afternoon and we had a good catch-up on news then she treated us to dinner at the Portreath Arms. After our meal we took the dogs on the beach where Willow had great fun in the water while Hamish did his usual trick of watching from the edge!
