Once more unto the breach...



(Picture of Carn Brea.)

Life continues to be hectic. My dear sister in law Shelagh has just departed after a far too short stay in which she packed in as much as was humanly possible, but she is much missed by me, Pete and Molls.

In haste here as proofs have arrived for the walks book so I’m checking those and trying to sort out renewing insurance, writing introductions and organising tomorrow – I have won tickets for the Royal Cornwall Show. Not just that but we are to go as VIPs and I am to start the first ever polo match at the Show.

Trouble is, tickets have arrived – and there’s only one. Aaagh…. Cue phone calls and emails.

Typically, the forecast for tomorrow is wet. And windy. And we have to wear Smart clothes. With wellies and macs. Could be interesting.

If you’re anywhere near Westcountry TV on Thursday, look out for the drowned rat throwing a ball to the polo players. On that note, I am to be introduced to polo ponies and players. You know what they say about polo players…..

Then on Friday I have to do a walk for a dog magazine, then on Saturday it’s our 3 choirs and a Ferry gig where we sing on the King Harry Ferry as it gets dark. Last year it really was a night to remember, and I’m sure this year it will be, too.

On Sunday I will collapse in a happy heap!

I'm sorry for your loss - another to come to terms with. Hope you find a few minutes for yourself in your very busy schedule... and let's have a full report on those polo players!

Chris - well it's only a temporary loss - she's there on Facebook and email! Will certainly report back on those polo players!!!

Sally said...

What a week and what a lot of fun! Glad you and Shelagh had such a good time. Enjoy your important role starting off the polo! xx

Thanks Sally - Shelagh and I had lovely time and I will enjoy the polo, rain or not!

Flowerpot said...

Shirley - I know I'm tired to start with but hoping adrenaline will kick in. Thinking of those polo players, it will!

Akelamalu said...

WOW you have got a busy week!

What do they say about Polo players?

Flowerpot said...

Ak - polo players are known for their excellent riding skills both on and off horses....!!

Melissa Marsh said...

I am tired just reading all of that. But I think it's good to stay busy sometimes. And I've never been to a polo match - what fun! Take pictures! :)

Flowerpot said...

Melissa - this week is crazy but all will settle down next week. She says.... I've never been to a polo match either and I would take pictures but the forecast is terrible, so will let the press take the pics!

Gosh you ARE busy but that helps to stop you feling maudlin.

Carol White said...

I hope the choir singing on the King Harry Ferry goes ahead, they have cancelled the film shows for tonight (Thursday) and tomorrow due to the weather. If it does go ahead I will be watching via the webcam. Shelagh has described you to me so I will be waiting for a wave!

Annieye said...

I hope your weekend went well and you didn't get too wet in all this rain we are still having.

Flowerpot said...

Carol - the forecast is for the wind to die down tonight (Friday) so fingers crossed.......!! I will wave for you and Shelagh!

Flowerpot said...

Addy - no time to feel maudlin or anything else for that matter, except enjoy life.

Talli Roland said...
