|Moss opening a birthday present|
At my mums at the morning of the wedding. I was a bridesmaid and I was veeery nervous.
Photographing things around my mum's house to take my mind of impending bridesmaid stress.
Cornwall. We went to Mousehole, St Michael's Mount, St Ives, Falmouth and the maritime museum, Trerice House, Mutton Cove and Godrevy, and the Eden Project.
The castle at St Michael's Mount
The view of it from the beach was so spectacular. We went out on a tiny little boat!
The seals on the beach at Mutton Cove. This was amazing! I could have watched them all day.
From Godrevy back along the coast,. Here we saw a kestrel hovering dead still in the air.
Falmouth habour was very atmospheric. I have no connection to the sea really, despite its omnipresence on the South East coast where I grew up, so to experience Cornwall properly (as an adult, I have been before but a long time ago) where everything is influenced by the sea, fishing and boats was really interesting for me. Cornwall blue, the artists, the fresh fish, the boats and inlets, the white painted houses ranged along the coasts... it was all so charming.

We walked around the Eden Project until our feet were sore. It was a hugely inspiring place for me, and I hope to take with me some of the things I learned.
Autumn and winter beckons. I need to sort out our curtains and get draft excluders ready for our first full winter in an almost 100 year old house.
I feel enthused and terrified at the prospect of joblessness after the end of October. A job I thought might work out now won't, and I've no idea what will happen. If I'm jobless, at least I will have more time to work on music, learning about making things and sorting out the house...... maybe more blog posts too? Feeling of terror swing back and fore with feelings that everything will work out like it all did before in March.
