I am back after a most enjoyable week on the Atlantic Coast of Cornwall with my parents. The weather was mixed but we had three or four really good days which allowed Rothmans and Miss Fleet to have some fun on the beach, and your correspondent to have a few good swims in the sea, and also to get mildly sunburnt. (Please note that in the picture below that is not a bald patch you can see on my head, but a strange trick of the cornish light). My father (69) ventured in once (the pictorial evidence is too shocking to be published on this blog) but claims that his ‘feet get too cold’, which has at least sorted out his birthday present (boots for his wetsuit).
All in all it was a lovely week, although as ever coming home is a bit depressing, and this afternoon has been spent dealing with the jungle in the back garden and pouring acid down all the sinks in the house to try to counter an alarming smell which has developed while we have been away. Normality returns. Back to work for Mrs Fleet and I, and to School for Miss Fleet, on Monday. For Rothmans life will continue much as usual!
