It started off with drenching drizzle with periods of sporadic heavy rain which then slowly dried up as the day progressed. It stayed very much dingey and overcast, however.

The highlight of the day was getting out of the house to go shopping. That’s the trouble with Cornwall. Unless you want to either get soaked walking or want to pay lots to visit a mediocre theme park, there’s not a lot to do when the weather’s against you. This is especially true now with my Mum being very much like a five year old except without the bounce. i.e. a very short attention span and has to have a eye kept on her at all times so that she doesn’t wander off on a whim and very little thought of longer term consiquences of her actions, always living for now. She does still have better days but these are becoming fewer.
