2011.03.11 My Day thus far

I booked today as holiday earlier in the week mainly for the puropse of going to the Crematorium at Cambridge.  Its been a mixed day emotionally, sadness mainly. Today has been the day where I said goodbye to my  dear friend Joe who died unexpectedly a fortnight ago.  Sad for us those of us who are left  behind that is.  We shall miss him  dreadfully as he had such a zest for life and quite bluntly was always on the go and never ever in.  Four of us friends travelled to Cambridge Crematorium to say cheerio to him.  No flowers at the request of his step-family but any donations going to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association a worthy cause.

I am now at home having had something to eat and am just relaxing as I am out again this evening to an Evening of Mediumship by my friend and Teacher Jacqueline Lesley at the Park Hotel in Peterborough.  It should be a very good night and I am looking forward to it.  It will be good to be out and about again.   Here is  a link to her website for those of you who are interested.

I sorted and tidied my hair up last night and I think I have also sorted out what I am going to be wearing this evening, now I just need to find some comfy shoes to wear with my choice of outfit.  I think I shall wear my moonstone pendant and also my ear-rings to match.  My tourquoise bracelet needs to go into the jewellers so I cannot wear that.  It is Native American Matrix Tourquoise which was bought as a present for me a quite a few years ago from a little shop in Mevagissey and is an absolute favourite but it needs the tender ministrations from jeweller to repair the silver frame.  Tourquoise is the stone of protection and I could do with that right now.

We used to go a lot on holiday in Mevagissey and what is now The Gardens of Helligan used to be part of the camp site that we used to go to at Pengrugla where we used to camp with the tent and the caravan.  I do love Cornwall, but it is a few years since we have been able to decamp and go on holiday down there (some 5 years since went there);  More's the pity.  One day I am going to live down there though.  I love the sea, the woods, the gentle unspoilt countryside.  Now I just have to find the way of achieving it.   And in the words of my father whenever we used to ask about things or specifically for things and he couldn't afford it and didn't want to disappoint.  He used to say to me  One day love,  One day.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Catch you all soon




  1. Sending a {hug} Tricia, sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend Joe. There's never a 'good' time to loose a friend or family member, but when it's unexpected it's somehow worse.
    Thinking of you.

  2. We've been to my Uncle's funeral today too.

    It's funny to see that you know this area really well - the camp site is still there, but is owned by the same company that owns the site at Pentewan Sands.

  3. Thanks Rose and Kay - much appreciated.

    Kay hope your uncle's funeral also went as well as could be expected in the circumstances. Its never easy saying good bye to loved ones and leaves an empty space within.


    We had some good times in Mevagissey and whenever and wherever we stay down in Cornwall (when we do that is) we always pay a visit to Mevagissey to look around the shops and more often or not fish for mackeral off the end of the harbour. Nothing tastier. I understand why you love it so much I would move down there like a shot. There is so much scope to do your own thing and put your dreams into action and actually live the dream. Am very partial to cider too. OOhps.

    Take care
