Rule breaking

Everyone loves a gentle rule breaker and I don’t mean anything criminal , I mean going against the norm .I’ve always been a gentle rule breaker and the worse thing you can do is to tell me no because I’ll go out the way to prove I can like being told I quite simply shouldn’t marry I’m October well nearly 23 years on I’ve proved them wrong in that one.Then there was the one where you shouldn’t holiday In Cornwall in October and again I say “ Knickers “ to that one to hell with the in crowd.Yes we all love the sunshine and yes it makes everything better but so does going again the grain.

Padstow In The Rain

It’s wetter than a Fisherman’s haddock out there and you can guarantee the moment I leave my holiday there will be glorious sunshine.But rain doesn’t matter as long as you’ve family or something that makes you happy be it books tea or that bough of a branch that dangles down.

Rain gives us another dimension to life ! and as this is the year of the obvious staycation then I don’t mind a bit of rain as long as I get some sunshine at some point.

Lobster Pots And Fishermen in Boscastle

Lobster Pots and fishermen in Boscastle

Come to Boscastle and you’ll see the sky maybe it’s Cornwall and it has license to rain , relaxation doesn’t have a price.Lobster pots and fishermen is all I see a time old job steeped in history.I diverted the journey to the shop for teabags to stop and stare at Lobster pots and fishermen.

The magical thing about Cornwall is the ability to let you relax as soon as you get there .I’m half Cornish myself with my family on my dads side going back over 500 years in Cornwall.Cornwall is a state of mind and a state of the heart.

A Reason To Enter Competitions

I was lucky enough to win some towels fro, Allure Bath fashion which has saved me from buying some and in these strange economic times everything helps.I do love comping and I’ve written before about the friendships it has bought me and some great experiences from going to the Paralympic opening ceremony to taking my late cat on holiday .

And you can't put a price on friendship ( card courtesy of Jane Willis ) 
you can visit Janes,s blog here

and without that friendship I wouldn't have ended up entering other competitions from winning cash for my school where I used to work to holidays in Berlin and Amsterdam.And then there is the towels winning such items as I mentioned helps with saving the pennies are those are the pennies which I can put towards essential bills , I truly believe that comping helps in the great circle of life ( but with out the lions and catchy soundtrack sung by Elton John)

And I don't enter everything under the son although once some horse feed did turn up and I am allergic to horses ( I have ended up in hospital because of them due to my asthma )

And going back to the friendship aspect it is very important to me to keep those online friendships going and I have met many people along the way often in real life too like the lovely Jane I went to the opening ceremony of the Paralympics in 2012 . We nearly got ushered in Boris Johnson as VIPS but then they cottoned on to us and we went through the commoners entrance.
