I'm back down in Cornwall, with my family in tow, for an Easter break.We usually come down at this time of year to assess the damage that the winter storms have caused to the cottage. So once again it was going to be a case of patching up damp, painting over rust spots and generally sorting things out. The only thing that was different was that I had quite a lot of work on at the moment so would have to spend a fair bit of time on that. Thus the DIY burden was going to fall largely on the shoulders of my VLW.
Partially because of my work load and the fact that our two daughters both had lots of Uni work to do as well as the fact that the weather forecast for the far South West was frankly pants, we didn't come down until Wednesday. It lashed down with rain almost the entire journey and though it wasn't actually raining at Pendeen, there was a very strong wind, which was surprisingly chilling despite its southerly direction. We hurriedly unpacked the car and sought the shelter of the cottage.
