I’m sat in a coffee shop in Penzance. It’s called The Green Bean Coffee Co and the people here are super lovely. Me and Chris got a drink here on Saturday and I decided that I’d use this as a base today while waiting for the car to get fixed. If it was as simple as driving round the area and then travelling home we might have been able to chance it but actually with all the extra driving across the country this week we really needed to get it fixed.
I’m not one for saying this kind of thing but I think the devil decided that as we’re doing this huge challenge which is to show Jesus to our town and young people in the long run, he decided that he’d give us a mole hill to get over to start with. Thankfully my God is bigger and stronger than anything he can throw at us – yes it sucks but we’ll sort it and fight through it.
I’m going to head up to the post office after I finish playing Popmaster with @RickieWrites and @RoxyRich via twitter – then I’m losing epically and not really helping myself by writing this blog post instead of playing lol. (Oops just been encouraged to get another drink then again I’ve been sat here miles longer than I thought doh!)
I’d started at the bookstore up the road looking for The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe and The Left Side of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin. I have a copy of the second at home but i didn’t bring it with me as Chris was complaining about how much I’d packed lol. (one holdall and one satchel – how much of the stuff in the car relates to him and his bike lol).
I’m still reading My Life in France which could take me the whole week but I’d rather have extra to read and not touch them than finish this book and not have anything to read for the rest of the week.
I’m going to finish my drink and then head off for a wander I think. Then lunch might be needed. Is there a cinema in Penzance? I might have to pay as I don’t think there is a Cineworld this far along the country (I think the nearest is Cheltenham or somewhere up there!)
For the stressful, energetic half of the trip read Chris’s posts here.
