“Don’t try to walk in front of me and try to lead me, don’t walk behind me and try to follow me just be beside me and be my friend”

Dove, that is lovely. Will make a note of that.

The best journey always takes us home' - very true SGL, but no trains can take me back to my beloved Cornwall at the moment. It's very hard to keep my thoughts positive when I see some of my favourite places being slowly destroyed, and local people in such distress. I know that come the summer and the warm sunshine, my thoughts will be totally positive, but for now I feel so helpless looking on. I just hope the Cornish (and of course the people in Devon,Dorset, and Somerset ) can soon feel more positivity than I do - knowing their strength and resilience I'm sure they will.

Oh Pentillie, I hope I didn't make you sad. 

06/02/2014 at 23:47

No Lily, I was already sad. Your beautiful quotations and snippets just help concentrate my mind and encourage me to put any negativity behind me - thank you.

Tradition has it that Cornwall was God's chosen country, and the Devil would not cross the Tamar for fear of ending up in a Tiddy Oggy - seems like he's knocking at the gates at the moment!

Well said Pentillie.  

Lily, those sentiments are perfect 

06/02/2014 at 23:55

Pentillie, what is a Tiddy Oggy?

07/02/2014 at 06:09

Tiddy Oggy is local slang for a Cornish pastie

07/02/2014 at 07:32

So glad I didn't upset you Pentillie, and thank you and Verdun x

I wondered what a Tiggy Oggy was too, a cornish pastie oh yum, I love those

We love Cornwall and have had many happy holidays there - the only way I can think of helping at the moment is to be determined to have many more holidays there, to help the region's economy recover.

Pentillie - many of us here share your thoughts and understand your sadness, even if we don't come from your beautiful part of the country. It's heartbreaking to see the devastation in the south west at the moment, and it shouldn't be happening. I won't say any more, it's making me very  angry just now. 

I can think of a few candidates for a Tiddy Oggy right now.

Ditto Fairy totally agree with you
