Going back down memory lane

Hello there! I hope you're having a lovely bank holiday weekend! This is my home for the next week.......

Cornwall day 1 028

Mr JK and I are spending the week in Cornwall, in a lovely little cottage in Wadebridge. When I was a child, we holidayed in Cornwall every year, and I have lots of very happy memories of the county. This is the first time I've been back, and I'm looking forward to re-visiting some of the places I remember. We walked in to Wadebridge this morning, and I have spotted several shops that are going to need a Closer Investigation! And, I even found a yarn shop! I feel it my duty to take a further look and then report back to you all! There is an old bridge in the town that is know as the 'bridge of wool'. Legend has it that the bridge was founded in 1468 on sacks of wool!!!!!

The girly socks are progressing well, thanks to a rather long journey down here yesterday. I'm just decreasing the toe, so they will soon be done. Photos next time. In the meantime, I'm planning lots of clotted cream teas, fudge and ice creams! I'll share my first with you and say bye for now! Yum yum!

Wow it looks lovely, what a beautiful little cottage! Perfect for knitting and snuggling up I'd imagine. I've never been to Cornwall either but it does look lovely - have a wonderful time :)
