I've started my new job today, a bit familiar (working for the Council) but a bit strange (different department and location) at the same time. I'm sure that given time I will get to grips with it, but it will be a learning curve. Meanwhile I have been invited to join the ex-colleagues from my previous job for an evening out later this week, which will be a nice end to my first working week.
Last week David and I were on holiday in Cornwall, in contrast to the previous week's lovely warm weather, it had turned cooler and towards the end of the week a bit wet too. Hoping for a bit of time on the beach it was just a bit too cold for that so we've been exploring.
On the Monday we stayed around St Ives and took a train ride to St Erth and return to take in some of the coast past Carbis Bay which was an interesting ride. While David went back to the B&B to relax I stayed in the town and saw this very unusual sight around the harbour near the lifeboat station
As I walked out of town later I heard this and two more steam cars go whizzing past to then struggle up the steep hill going out of town
Tuesday we took a trip out to Mousehole then onto St Michael's Mount, timing the trip so that we walked out on the causeway
We thought it was too early to get back to the B&B so we had a short visit to a tin mine at Levant
More photos of our holiday to come.
P.S. I may not have responded to those who wished me well for the new job, but thank you, it's very much appreciated.
