We spent last weekend in Cornwall. It almost didn’t happen because we were booked on Flybe flights to Newquay, and the airline nearly went bust at the start of that week. But it was rescued in the nick of time and we got to Cornwall and back in a way that was a lot less tiring than the usual all-day drive, especially at this time of year when daylight hours are short.
The first day we were there, a gale blew up and hurled hail in our faces on and off, which was unpleasant. We retreated to our hotel’s hot tub, steam room and sauna. But then we had 3 mild, sunny, windless days and did several long coastal walks, timing them carefully to be able to walk across certain beaches and tidal causeways when the tide was low enough …
The mystery lighting project
The best of 2020 anyway.
I love the shadows it casts on the walls. It’s at the top of our staircase and I was a little worried that the shadows would be too distracting on the stairs, but painting the inner surfaces of the plywood shapes white means the light bounces around enough to make the shadows quite blurry and indistinct at ground level. Phew!
I have some beige Shetland 4-ply which should do – not the most exciting shade, but the little flecks of colour in it should mean it will go with a few things. I like this broken rib.
