Our post-Covid holiday

One year later than planned, we were off to Cornwall to celebrate my husband’s “big” birthday. Judging by the amount of booze given priority boarding in the car, what celebrations they would be. Seven days of fun, togetherness and Cornish weather!

The boys enjoyed their mackerel fishing trip, even if the rain and choppy seas meant the fish went AWOL. The mackerel we barbequed later, bought at the fishmongers, tasted just as sweet.

It mattered not that the girls’ “boat trip” across the estuary lasted barely long enough to park our bottoms, so strong were the prevailing winds. It gave us more time to party at the other side.

If Covid taught us anything, it’s that life is too short to wait for the wind and rain to stop. Our long- awaited holiday reminded us just how wonderful “normal” life is. The pile of empty wine bottles bore testimony to this.
