Glad to hear the visitors have gone Verdun - hopefully I will get down there in a couple of weeks. Daughter starts her next course of treatment on Thursday, so OH and I need to be around for 4 or 5 days, looking after her and the two little 'uns - looking forward to a break back home!

When I was a kid I saw the sea every day - it becomes a part of you, and I miss it - but it still lifts my heart when I go over a hill and see the ocean glittering below me!

White pudding is more common in Cornwall and Devon than black pudding - although black pudding is the food of the Gods!

Sister texted me earlier, Verdun - she was sitting on the cliffs near Bude, in warm sunshine, watching the ocean - just rubbing in the fact that she's there, and I'm here!

Today I feel so happy....

Ice cream wasn't cheap KEF, but, oooooooooh the taste - just the best I've had 

Can't believe I've not bothered to go there before!

Faith in human nature is restored! Went to my local farm, Lacey's at Studley Green in the Chilterns, where they have an award-winning herd of Guernsey cattle. I went to their farm shop, lovely old flintstone dairy building, and bought some home-made chocolate ice-cream ( Guernsey milk and Guernsey cream), and some full-cream milk. The shop also had cream, honey, jams and new-laid eggs - all produced on the farm, which is quite a large operation.

The reason for this post is that the shop is unmanned, and you simply write what you take in a big ledger, and put the appropriate money through a postbox in the wall ( there is also a big bowl full of small change should you need it!)

The stock must be worth a few hundred pounds, and I could have taken anything. I just love the fact that, in this gorgeous setting, the owners are happy to trust us all to do the right thing. Well done, all at the Farm!
