On Saturday I did something that I haven’t done for a while – I snuck off the cinema alone in the afternoon.
I was on Oxford Street in London at the weekend indulging in a little retail therapy.
Our house in Cornwall is in Lostwithiel, an ancient town on the banks of the River Fowey.
Last Sunday was LostFest, Lostwithiel’s annual festival of arts, crafts and antiques. It’s a real celebration in the town – a one day packed schedule of music, entertainment, art, craft stalls, food stands, antique shops and local exhibitions.
Sometimes the best things in life are actually not the most beautiful but the most functional.
