Hi, I’m Maggie Fogarty, pleased to meet you!
Thanks for stopping by at my website. You can find out more about me and my books here. I’ll be blogging regularly about life in west Cornwall, with updates from our dog Bonnie, the very Cornish cockapoo.
West End Gal: my latest blog posts
First a short message from Bonnie the very Cornish cockapoo… ‘Ahem folks, I know I’m supposed to be the doggy star of the blog but this time rent Maggie is grabbing back the slot. So here is a quick piccy of me to be going on with and trust me, I’ll be back!’ So over […]
Hi folks, Time for another posting from little ol’ me, and not before time! The weather is getting better and it seems that a good chunk of the country is making its way down to my Cornish patch. Talk about busy and we haven’t even hit summer yet…not that I’m complaining. Looks like we’ll be […]
Hey – it’s little ol’ me again, Bonnie the dog blogger. Just got back from a great break away with my rents – we stayed in a cottage right up in the Malvern Hills, so lots of great walkies and pub visits. (You guys know how much I love a good long stroll followed by […]
‘Hey – bet you thought you weren’t going to hear from blogger Bonnie again. How wrong were you? Things have been a bit busy in my world, so I’ve got my excuse in early! First, the rents headed off on a trip to London, staying at some amazing river side apartment belonging to friends. I’ve […]
Hiya folks, If you’ve been reading this blog spot, I’m usually the little ‘footnote’ – the bit that comes after my rent Maggie’s piece. Not any more though! From now on, Bonnie’s the star of the show and about time too if you don’t mind me saying so. (Tough if you do). Anyway, for those […]
Are you one of those people who gets excited by the arrival of a New Year? Me too, despite the uncertainties and horrors that haunt the world stage. Let’s face it, most people are fundamentally good even though the bad ones usually punch well above their weight – often literally. So here’s to 2017, whatever […]
There’s been a bit of a gap between the last blog and this one. Blame the building work, visitors and writing deadlines. A feeble excuse I know, but life really has been extra busy recently. Take the builders. They’ve been a great bunch and have done a fantastic job. Like anything in life, a good […]
You know the summer is coming to an end when west Cornwall gets even busier – and this year we’re talking mega busy. The late August Bank Holiday is always the most popular time for visitors, a chance to get in that last break before the schools go back and the start of autumn. Yikes, […]
Last week the summer weather arrived and for a few days it felt like we were back in sunny Bermuda – that special place where we stayed for a year in 2011/12. In the hotter weather living by the sea has distinct advantages. The cooling sea breeze is welcome but with it comes a rise […]
It’s been a week of highs and lows, stunning beauty tainted with images of mindless violence. Hubby and me had a fantastic five day trip to the historic city of Porto, famous for its incredible architecture and – of course – the Port vino that goes so well with cheese. We stayed close to the […]
