Team cousins was in full force today to celebrate Millie's 6th Birthday
The theme of the party was under the sea!
As mentioned in a previous post, this is not my first visit Porthleven, as kids we stayed in a cottage called Tamarisk not a million miles away from where we are staying at the moment, in fact it's one minute away, so we paid a visit this afternoon.
It does not appear to have changed too much and from peeping in the window it still appears to be a holiday cottage. The other memory of this cottage was of the cottage opposite, which has changed massively. When we stayed as kids the cottage opposite was almost derelict but was occupied by the 'witch' kids code for an lady. What was also memorable was the amount of cats that kept her company. The cottage has now been totally renovated.
Porthleven has long held happy memories, it was a childhood summer holiday location, although my memory fails me in how many times we have stayed here.
However I do recall it being the home of one of the most memorable card games in the Butler history!!
Since then I, and Jo, have visited on a few occasions, but only as day trippers. So this weekend is a first for Poppy and a long overdue visit for me!
Within 15 mins of our arrival Poppy was on the beach, and as you will have seen from the other blog entry, dodging waves in the first evening, so I think it so far has the Poppy seal of approval.
Day 1 of our trip has involved a zoo, a road trip, Porthleven, beach, wave dodging and an attempt at a log fire, not bad for a first day.
I am currently in bed, with a fast asleep Poppy listening to the waves, wind and rain, I don't think we are going to be blessed with the sun today!
We had a good weekend just gone. We were in Wargrave for Liliana's 2nd birthday party. However I did not take any photos, I know, unusual for me!
So, I thought I would share Poppy's handy work on Gizmo's hair this morning before school
Poppy's other 'event' for the weekend was a performance of the Nutcracker, in her own unique style!
