A new perspective

Of course, the good thing about Cream Cracker and Achernar moving over to the other side of the marina is that we get a much better view out of our starboard windows. It's what we see when we open the bedroom blind first thing in the morning. Though it was foggy on Wednesday, and we could hardly see the end of that jetty!

Furthermore, with no-one living nearby any more, I can play my music as loud as I want without the fear of disturbing anyone! And Grace can practise the flute! That said, we miss the Arrens and Phil and Jackie.

We came back to the house on Thursday, It looked as though there was no rough weather around that would bother an unheated Kantara, so we're back to put up the Christmas decorations here, and to visit former pupil Jacqui's silver jewellery fair today.

It was a lovely event, held in Jacqui's 500-year-old house. Not only was her beautiful jewellery on display, but some also made by the woman who taught Jacqui the craft. Cake and coffee were being served in the kitchen. After a lot of umming and aahing, Grace came away with some lovely, silver ear-rings. She was spoiled for choice.

The last time I'd seen Jacqui was something in the region of 30 years ago. It was lovely to see her again. She'd grown a bit!
