Last year when I was recovering, she brought me big bags of pick n mix, a well known aid to recovery! She was there when I needed good friends around me.
Yesterday we went to Porthleven one of her favourite places and had a lovely few hours mooching around and lunching. It is a very pretty village that suffered terrible damage in the storms last year, but the whole community pulled together. They removed the boats from the damaged harbour and got them safely onto land. It was a very scary time for them, many had to board up their windows to stop the waves crashing into their homes. But I am happy to say the village is looking wonderful again, although very rainy in these photos. It has lovely craft shops and is well worth a visit. Check out Stargazey a lovely craft shop owned by a friend. Yes an unashamed plug, but I wouldn't recommend it if it wasn't good. Also the artist studios at the Salt Cellars, many years ago I learned how to weave baskets, B bought me some withies from there so I will be trying to remember how to do it.

We went onto Penzance next and 'hit' the Charity shops, B is very good at searching out a bargain! Before heading into the City for a glass or two of wine, giggling like schoolgirls on the walk home. I am very tempted to show you the photo of her pretending to be a duck with two Pringles in her mouth, but that may lead to the end of a beautiful friendship.
Here's to friends and communities, I hope you are lucky enough to have both
