There were some very sore heads the morning after the Christmas Do, however we all braved a drive out down the coast, ending up in Padstow for a coffee. Needless to say, it wasn't raining, so we dressed up warm and everyone went topless - that would be the cars not the people!

It was decide that we would all go for a Christmas meal at the Atlantic Hotel in Newquay. The above rabble managed to get quite tipsy I think! Left to Right is Sharon, Mike, Sally-Ann and Mike.
Here are Paul and myself with Roger acting as the rose between us to thorns.
And so the festivities begin - including very naughty looking long thin balloons, streamers, and those funky blowy things that never seem to work but when they do make a horrendous noise!

This is Sharon, one of my oldest friends, that is to say I've know her forever! and of course Chris her fiance.
I'm glad to say that I am once again working alongside her and have made loads of new friends in my new job too.
It's Sharon's birthday and we have all gone to The Old Shire for a meal.
The food was to die for and the potatoes had this herby yummy taste that was sooooo moreish - YUM...
This is Sharon with Mike our Personnel Manager
This is Mandy with me and Paul. Mandy is my office manager - and we tried really hard to get her tipsy on Taboo and Lemonade but it didn't work!
and finally this is the lovely Alison with her husband David.
We had a really nice night - the first of many I hope.

Look at the sun coming through the clouds. It was brilliantly sunny, but this is the effect I got looking directly at the sun - quite dramatic.

First a trip to Padstow and a coffee on the quay - and a bowl of water for Fred too of course!
Then we moved to Tintagel and Jamaica Inn...
It was somewhere around here that we realised that we had used nearly a £100 pounds in diesel... worth it though!

Mount Edgecumbe car show was a great day out - so many cars, beautiful weather and look at that water we could have been in a cove in the Greek Islands, not Cornwall! - Fred had fun with all the new sniffs and certainly made himself vocal every time a much larger dog passed him by - bless him - no fear that one!

Another fantastic turn out of cars on our '5' stand. We were able to try and recruit new members and offer advise to currents owners.
The weather was lovely and warm and both Fred and myself enjoyed the sunshine

I'm working with a very old friend of mine. We met when she moved to Birmingham and got a job at the same place as me. Her daughter was a little dot, still at school and she would come in and help us to colour in and copy bits of paper during the holidays!.
Now of course Bex is a young lady in a job of her own and Sharon and I are quite a few years older!
I am to work the same hours as Sharon for the first couple of weeks, as the office manager is on holiday, I can then go to my regular hours.
There are only 4 of us in the office and it's such a laid back environment. Not at all like the high pressure, high powered stuff I used to do, (up until 6 weeks ago) a much more sedate pace of life. Lovely.
I do believe that sanilty shall return now we are in Cornwall.
By the way today was also our 15th wedding anniversary!

We did not sleep last night as we are not used to the silence.
And there are stars in the sky too!!! Amazing - you can't see this in Birmingham!
