Sunday Sevens – 23rd Arpil

Joining in again this week with Sunday Sevens, which was started by Nathalie at Threads and Bobbins.

Lovely Littlest and her boyfriend came down for Easter last weekend. So on Sunday, once we’d walked Mr Hicks, we drove down to Plymouth and caught the ferry to Cawsands.

Cawsands is a pretty little village in South East Cornwall that was once renowned for smuggling. We took a wander around…

…. then stopped for a Cornish cream tea – although, as you can see, I’ve put mine together the Devon way…

On the way back to the ferry, we spotted this made form recycled rubbish…

Here’s the sobering explanation of why it was made…

On Monday weΒ took Mr Hicks for a walk beneath Meldon Viaduct, where the bluebells had sprung into bloom…

I also spotted this fairy door in a tree, which I haven’t noticed before…

Even though it’s been very dry, Mr Hicks, still found himself a puddle…

After the walk and a failed BBQ, because there was no gas in the bottle, we had a mini ‘Olympics’.

I came third overall, but won the darts and the ping pong – – although I would never have beaten Lovely Husband at ping pong, ifΒ he hadn’t given me very generous handicap. After the contest we wound down with a relaxing game of Jenga.

Having been away for a long weekend the weekend before, we’d already had two three day weeks, so spent the rest of the week doing catching up with the more routine parts of life.

Hope you’ve had a great week!

  1. The time of year has come when I see bluebells on English blogs and miss them 😦 (not to mention cream teas – I’m not fussy about the county).
    I’m coming over for a few days in a couple of weeks though so I’ll hopefully get to see some bluebells if they’re not all finished by then.

  2. Surely Jenna is the opposite of ‘relaxing’! Great fun to have a mini Olymics, though, and something I might try next time we have a barbecue. We had to buy a new bottle with our new barbecue, so there’s no danger of running out of gas:) It’s a rule of ours to always have a cream tea when we go to Devon or Cornwall, but I prefer mine with cream on top….

    1. Yes, that was a rather tongue in cheek relaxing. I’m sure your boys would love an mini Olympics – although you may want to miss out the axe throwing for safety reasons. I find the jam squishes out if I put that on first…

  3. I love the little village, so peaceful and pretty. Glad you went, I would have went as well. πŸ™‚ Sad about the marine litter, isn’t it. Seems to be a problem everywhere.
    Okay, I must ask, what is the difference between Cornish cream tea and the Devon way? πŸ™‚ I have mine with the jam, and then cream on top.
    Well done with the mini games, it looked like a lot of fun.
    Hugs to Mr H and everyone.
