1. You take your life in your hands walking through Penlee Park at this time of the year. I was hit on the head three times today by falling chestnut pods.

  2. On my summer hols (a day trip to Scilly with a friend). Here are the old abbey remains at Tresco Abbey Gardens.

  3. The kittens don’t arrive until Thursday but we’ve already been getting ready for them.

  4. Pizza, Cornish stylee, at the Great Cornish Food Festival in Truro.

  5. Anemones in the kitchen window (thanks, Kathy!).

  6. Autumn veg at Thorne’s.

  7. My home from home for two days this week and two days next - an intensive InDesign training course.

  8. Basking in the hot sun over teacakes and coffee with Pam at the Rock Pool in Mousehole.

  9. Today I went to a drawing workshop. Here’s my goat.

  10. An incredibly hot summer day in mid/late September calls for a consoling glass of rosé on the rooftop café at Tate St. Ives.
