Amanda Richardson with collage 1979

Perhaps an odd choice for New Year's Day but The Helston Packet recently published a section titled 'Step Back in Time' and there I was. They claimed it was 1987 but my best guess is 1979. We lived in a lovely old cottage made of cob (mud, straw and animal hair). Honeysuckle wound around the porch and would stray through my open window in summer. After we had left it was discovered the honeysuckle had been dining on the cob walls, clever thing.
