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!

I've never come across a Gurkha restaurant before. What distinguishes it from a regular Indian restaurant?

The juice looks delicious. What a beautiful color.

Just Gai - Gurkha restaurants are quite common in Cornwall, they specialise in Nepalese cuisine. Here's the website to the one in St Austell: www.nepalesegurkha.co.uk

Mel - I love the look of juiced beetroot & really dark green juices too.

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
