A Day In The Life

Today, we decided to start the day with a juice.
We've had our juicer for about 3 years & it does make the most incredible juices...

Today's was Apple, Carrot & Beetroot - all organic.

We added a teaspoon of ground Rose Hips...

And it was delicious!

We went along to a cleaning demo after breakfast - work does tend to get in the way at times, but we were very impressed: Enjo are an Austrian company, who have created cleaning cloths, etc that can be used with just water. We use Bio D Products or have done so up until now... After seeing the various cloths & gloves do the jobs effortlessly, we decided to make a few purchases & if they don't work for us - we'll get our money back, so watch this space!

Then it was off to a local Gurkha restaurant for a meal with the kidlets...

We haven't seen Sal for over 5 weeks, so it was lovely to catch up!

As usual, we were non-stop chatting & somehow I got away with taking a photo of Hugo without him complaining!

Rose managed a smile, even though her uni work is overwhelming her at the moment! 

The food was great & we were the only customers, so were treated like VIPs. 
The waiter was really impressed that the whole family was veggie!

Having had such a busy day, we didn't get out for our walk until about 7pm. The sky was clear & the moon shone... 

A beautiful end to a perfect day!

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.



We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.


The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …
