This morning Graham and Christine (old family friends of the Eads) joined us for breakfast. It was a full house with Nicky, Ben and Abigail also staying. Poor Ben was all upset when he had to go off to school. Must have felt like he was missing out on all the fun. We headed over to Wells markets and wandered over to feed the ducks and swans in the moat. I never get tired of visiting Wells Cathedral. It's so pretty.

Manic morning with Nicky's birthday. Ben had to leave for school at 8:15am and we were rushing to eat breakfast so that Nicky could open her presents. Ben and Abigail gave her pyjamas and a dress pillow for her bed, and Geoff & Jen re-decorated her bedroom as their present to her. We gave her a new gold watch with diamonds around the face.

After breakfast, Jen and I took Kendra & Abigail over to the Village for a ...
Today we set off from home at 8am (still hard to get used to it being pitch black in the morning) and headed to Cornwall for the day. Even though it has been cold each day, it has been lovely sunny, crisp days with clear blue sky. First stop was the Bessell's house (Geoff's cousin who is our age and used to live in Australia) for morning tea of homemade scones, fruit mince pies and gingerbread men. Delicious!
