Food, Glorious Food

After last night's massive meal - we decided to have a late breakfast & being us, we chose something a little untraditional...

Nothing like spicy spaghetti...

Or Pesto penne to kick start the day!

Followed by my final French coffee.

It was a short drive to Dunkerque & after an accidental tour of the city centre - we boarded the ferry for our 2 hour sail back to the UK...

Where we had a few games of Uno.

The sun shone & the sea was calm.

And there was more pasta for us to sample...

Hugo was ready for his...

But Sime was slowing down.

And well yeh...

Spending the night near Dover & then tomorrow we're homeward bound!

Our month away has flown & although we're looking forward to seeing everyone, I still feel sad to leave France...
 I'm also peed off that I've left my latest book, with only 3 pages left to read & our shampoo bar (complete with tin) at the hotel in Bourges! Had to use hotel shampoo this morning which has caused my hair to be full of static & I keep getting shocks off things!

Anyway, back to work on Thursday - yippee!!!

Kay :)

I probably would appreciate the pictures of the delicious food more if I wasn't recovering from the flu. I like the new hairdo!!

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 …

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.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.



The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.


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.

Love Kay and Sime xx
