Exciting times.

It's all been go, go, go around here this past fortnight. First I was asked if I would be willing to sell some of my handmade things at Carruan farm & restaurant Polzeath. This is situated on the hill going down into Polzeath and has recently been taken over by Jackie. There's a shop and a
cosy restaurant selling reasonably priced homemade food. Outside there's more seating and a children's play area.
I made a new batch of feather filled cushions and took some pieces from my stock.






And the other exciting news! My 17 yr old was interviewed and subsequently offered a place to study English & creative writing at Falmouth University. 800 applicants for 90 places, this was her first choice & she desperately wanted to go there so smiley faces all round!
Then on Friday my 21 yr old applied for a job as commis chef with Paul Ainsworth at No 6 in Padstow. She was asked to go for a trial last night and he offered her the position of trainee pastry chef starting next week. We're delighted for her & she's very fortunate to have this chance to work at one of the best restaurants in Cornwall. Happy Days :)
