At the moment Russ & I are all snugged up house sitting for friends in Instow Devon. We have been coming to this part of Devon for over 10 years now, ever since Russ discovered his love of surfing. We used to always camp, then a few years ago good friends moved here & we swapped our inflatable mattress for a very comfy double bed. I have been pondering the correlation between our friends buying a house here and my lack of surfing. I think it comes down to the fact that when camping I used the chance to surf as some sort of wash, but now there are bubble baths & a power shower at my finger tips, surfing has been largely replaced with bike rides that more often than not end up at teashops selling scones thick with cream !
Although this afternoon scones were scoffed at a very Miss Marplesque hotel with my parents.
it's a good job I get to play football on the beach, otherwise I will turn into clotted cream !
PS Joyce from Pattern & Perspectives, yes we will soon be selling the Belle & Boo tape, I am not sure how to contact you so I really hope you see this :)
