After reading other peoples blogs for over two years i thought it was about time i did my own.
Thanks to my friend petehttp://thequaksoflife who helped with the setting up, being totally useless at these things a big thanks goes to him. Your a Star or is it starr!
Now i am finally here you somehow get lost for words but here goes anyway.
Cornwall has become our home being here 7yrs after living in essex for more than 25yrs it was a culture shock to start with, less cars less people small shops took a while ,but now here we certainly would not go back, it is now lovely to visit our family and friends and come back to the beautiful scenery , dartmoor one hour away and local beaches only 4 miles away , when i am more adept at this computer lark i will attempt to get some photo's on the blog may take a while though ha ha!
Been a funny week, our daughter gave us a surprise visit all the way from kent only told us the day before, fathers day and our anniversary, and i have had a eye op which will elaborate in another post, that was why she came, we had such a great weekend, weather superb and all so unexpected, Pete also was down so went out to dinner with him tuesday b b q monday with friends and daughter out tonight and out saturday, next week NOTHING always the way, but had a wonderful week.

Well first post over

Just thought I'd say hello, welcome to the world of blogging. I am not doing too well with mine at the moment, never seem to have enough time to think! I'm looking forward to seeing some Cornish photos (hopefully) which will bring back some memories for me I expect, Pete may have told you, I lived there for 4 years (1990-94) All the best anyway. Jan (the other one!)

Well done on your first post! Pete 'sent' me along and I'd like to say that I look forward to reading your posts and to seeing your phoptgraphs. I don't have my own blog but I do co-host a foodie one.

I envy you living in Cornwall, some of the happiest times of my life were spent there.

Hi Avalon and welcome to the world of blogging :) It can get quite addictive - in the best possible way of course.
