Cornwall was great. We had a really good time and the weather was much better than in London. It was nice to spend time with my sister and nephew. We ate lots of ice cream and pasties and various other unhealthy things. We saw various sights that I had been to previously (Land’s End, The Lizard etc) but I enjoyed going back to them and we also went to some places I hadn’t been to before, such as an owl sanctuary. This was a baby owl we saw.

The highlight for my nephew was when we spent time on the beach running away from the waves. We weren’t always very successful at getting away from them fast enough though.

G was there for the first couple of days but had to be back in time for work on Tuesday. My mum had invited G over for dinner one night, but had to cancel, which I was sort of relieved about because there is something slightly freaky about G spending time with my family when I’m not about!

It was our second anniversary on Wednesday, so when I got back on Saturday we went out for a really nice meal. I had scallops and black pudding to start and wild boar as my main course followed by orange bread and butter pudding. It was a really nice restaurant and a very nice meal. I think G had missed me and seemed to have lived on take away while I was away, so a good meal was probably very welcome.

Anyway, back to work now and I don’t have quite such a “back to work” feeling this time, as I only have about three weeks left in my current job.

That baby owl is quite cute in an evil way, which is the best way.

LKSN - It was a freaky little thing but was very friendly. If you stuck your finger out it would gently gnaw it. Cute, but I couldn't eat a whole one.

Wow. That baby Owl has really big legs.

Kahless - yes you're right! I think its legs are more adult size and the rest will catch up. Or it was cold and was wearing leg warmers.
