Good stuff. So where are you roughly, m'lady. 
'Poldarkian action'? Sounds a bit rude!

Hey Zacky,

Hadn't checked the forum for ages so lovely to see some Poldark action taking place.

Living here is totally wonderful - a dream come true and much better than I expected.  I do feel like a bit of a Londoner sometimes (even though I only lived there for six years) - I can't surf and often find myself driving 20 miles down the A30 to the Starbucks services so I can get my fix!

Classic travel report this morning I thought I might share:

"In the Glen Valley, there are some sheep on the banks at Warleggan".  Coming from London, this sort of stuff is still very amusing to me.

Keep posting!

I'm new here too. I used to go to Cornwall every summer with my parents - often stayed in Polzeath, which I recall having a long and lovely beach. My forebears on my grandfather's side are from Cornwall, but not your archetypal part of that county: they lived in the same house in Fore Street in Torpoint for generations, my research tells me. I'd love to go and live there like you, but I was born in London and my family is here. Maybe when I retire. Where are you moving to? Anyway, I hope it brings you happiness.

Nice pics well done smile.gif

If you're interested in posting larger pics as below then you can get them processed by joining Photobucket for free.

http://photobucket.com/


 
  1. In which case User name and Password are very (!) case sensitive.
  2. Best to go for the plain Classic theme white background as shown in the pic below, otherwise with the some of the more garish themes you might find you can't see your pics !
  3. Easiest way to start is to click on "old uploader" (arrowed in Stage 1) and experiment with all the other gadgets later. It's very similar to the Browse and Upload from your hard drive on our forum.
  4. Finally click on "IMG Code" (arrowed) as per Stage 2 and copy the whole code exactly into the message box. There must be nothing missing otherwise it won't appear. Finally you can if you want centralise the code itself so as to put the pic into the centre of the page before checking the preview to make sure it's all ok.

Stage 1

Stage 2

About half way through Bella now (sob!).

That brings it all back ! biggrin All the emotional ups and roller coaster downs. All the freshness and "immediacies" - the laughing, in my case semi hysterics, the sadness even tears, the poverty, the intellectual, the trials that one would selflessly go on enduring for another, the taking of sides, the can't wait to turn the page, the shopping still in the garage, the unabashed sentimental daily wallowing. Unforgettable (sniff !). I've lost count of the number of people even in some of his non-Poldark books who've said how uncannily, often uncomfortably close his character's thoughts and experiences have been to theirs in real life. It's the essential genius of the man really.

As for uploading pics onto the forum even I managed in the end ! As long as you've got them all first on your hard drive the rest honestly is easy. Click on the link below and follow the short instructions.

Enjoy the rest of the book.  smile

I was born a few years after the series first came out.  My Mum was in her teens at the time and was a huge fan.  She got me obsessed!

Will do my best to upload some pics but haven't quite worked out how yet.   may be young (ish) but that doesn't mean I'm a technological wizard!

About half way through Bella now (sob!).

That definitely sounds an ideal place to live !  Was this because of the original series ?

Btw are you any good at posting pics onto a forum as it would be very interesting for myself and other members who live far away or abroad to see some of these original BBC locations on here rather than just the general Internet touristy ones ?

Hi Greg,

Thanks for replying.  I feel right at home now!

Yes, I know what you mean about getting back to the start and reading all over again.  My sister has just finished 'Ross Poldark' and I'm thinking about how to get it back off her!  Will have lots of time on my hands when I move to Cornwall - I'm hoping for a more quiet life than London is currently offering.

Am moving to North Cornwall - my nearest Poldark locations are Port Quin, Roscarrock and on the other side, Warleggan (of course).

Only actually 10 days to go now!

Welcome to the Forum Lady Harriet smile I remember feeling the same sense of despondency too as I picked up Bella for the first time. But fortunately I found re-reading them all through a few years later, that they were just as good as ever as I felt I gained a much wider and deeper insight into things I'd either forgotten or missed the first time. I've got a feeling this just increases each time round too so I'm looking forward to my third session soon !

I know there's quite a few fans who've read the books many times over so can anyone say why they're still just as hooked as ever ? Wonder who's read them the most too ?

Lucky you ! Whereabouts in Cornwall are you going to live the dream ?

Greg  smile

Hello!

I'm new to the forum.  Just finished the Twisted Sword and not sure what I'll do with myself once I'm done with Bella.  Watch the DVd's again I guess.

Oh and I'm moving to Cornwall in two weeks!  Living the Poldark dream smile
