Today I turned on my laptop for the first time in ten days! Can you believe it?! I've not had a break like that for years....possibly ever. It did me the world of good.
Tom and I have just come back from a week in Cornwall which was utter bliss. We rented a small stone cottage in a tiny town just outside of Padstow, which was a great base to get to beaches and lovely quaint Cornish towns. I ate and drank as if calories didn't exist, gulped sleep, read voraciously, and soaked up the sun, sand and surf as only an Australian deprived of the beach for nearly a year would.
On our last morning there, I felt inspired to make this week's Monday Mantra from the Scrabble cards we found lying around the cottage and enjoyed a game or two with. It was quite early in the morning, the grass was slightly damp, and the sun was blinding. I felt moved to write something very simple but that had been a constant reminder for me in the week we'd had away:
So, happy Monday! Pictures and tales from Cornwall to come :)
