Star gazing

Port Isaac is a wonderful place. It has a cosmopolitan feel to it, largely due to the very chic crowd who live and holiday there. Every day something exciting and unexpected happened. Take for example the time we went to the Post Office to send our post cards and came across Martin Clunes being filmed for an episode of Dr Martin or the time we went to get fish and chips and got caught up in the silver band travelling up the hill with everyone dancing behind them to the floral dance and then watching them perform the Last Night of the Proms down at the harbour. Watching from his window was the lovely Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen who has a house there and is very much part of the day-to-day life, (oh I know you Greenwich girls won't be impressed but we love him!). His daughter (we didn't kow it was her at the time) was having a little sale on the steps of her house, with a sign saying 'Too small, please recycle', selling her floral wellies, her little plastic high heels and an plastic see-through umbrella. Alfie desperately wanted her wellies but they were way too big and floral so she said 'you can buy the umbrella if you like'. Alf was thrilled and sat underneath it watching tv for the rest of his holiday! Pin It

What a lovely beach!!
The last time that I went to a fancy dress party, I went as L.L.B!
Mainly because I found a fab, perfectly fitting suit from a charity shop that resembled a pair of curtains! He's tamed down abit with his clothes these days... and I don't wear curtains very often either!?
So... whats the Rick Stein place like? xx

I like pic blogs... yours is really great. I don't know who you are talking about... but it sounds fun. I am still learning all the celebs here in England.
