A Good Start

Woke up this morning with toothache...
I knew it was coming, as the tooth had cracked while we were in France.
Had the dreaded emergency treatment this afternoon (a filling) & am now in more pain!
Luckily, I've found some homeopathic remedies in our bathroom cabinet, which a friend gave to Sime last Summer after having his 4th tooth extracted... I've taken one dose of Arnica & have some Hyper & Cal to take too. Just hope that the pain will have calmed by tomorrow!

I find the best way to cope with pain like toothache is to just keep busy - this morning there was lots of paperwork to sort through, then I decided to make: bread, rolls, a brown lentil cottage pie & a big pan of vegetable soup.

We also travelled down the lane again for our daily walk - this is the view 10 minutes from the house...

The beach is getting nearer... 
The field has a footpath - which is the short cut to the beach, but we like going along the lane instead.

Will take some photos of the lane tomorrow - it's tiny & lots of vehicles end up getting stuck as it's so narrow!

Hugo & I thought it was Pancake Day yesterday, so we made some vegan pancakes tonight (we usually have them after the day!), but for some strange reason Pancake Day has moved to March, so we've had them early!

We used strong white bread flour, gram flour, oat milk & olive oil...
Topped with some soft brown sugar & fresh lemon juice. 
The perfect comfort food for toothache!!!

I keep hearing people talk about putting lemon juice on pancakes - I am going to have to try this. Hope the tooth feels better soon.

Hope the toothache has eased off, Kay. How did you manage with the lemon and sugar on the pancakes!

I hope your weather is as good as ours today, it's a lovely day for a walk or spending time in the garden. The sun is shining and I can hear the birds singing through the open window.

Mel, I don't know what lemon would be like on American pancakes, but it's lovely on English (British? or are they French?) pancakes, with a little sugar. It is the traditional accompaniment, but I don't know how old the tradition is.

We have lemon and sugar with French pancakes (crepes) ubt crispy bacon and maple syrup with American ones.

I hope your toothache eases soon, Kay.

We've never tried sweet pancakes with something savoury. Perhaps we should try some vegan rashers with pancakes & syrup... But Mel, lemon juice & sugar is really good!

We didn't get to do a walk yesterday, as we worked too long, but the weather was lovely & mild!

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 …
