Heading Home

More food today...

Sime & Hugo were very excited at the thought of some British grub for breakfast!
In reality it was pretty awful & after looking out of the hotel window - I wished we were back in France...

Our whole journey home felt very drab & grey, lots of traffic on litter covered roads.

Even Stonehenge looked dismal!

Seeing the huge pigs further down the road - didn't lift us, just left us feeling sad.

We stopped off for a plate of vegetables at a pub in Exeter & still we all seemed subdued...

Now we're home & it's nice to be back, Sime's happy pottering around, Hugo's on his comp talking to his friends - while I'm supposed to be organising our work schedule for the next few days.

But instead, I'm thinking about the next adventure...

Welcome home. I guess it's not unusual to feel a bit low after a holiday, especially as enjoyable as the one you've just had.

I hope the sun shines for you tomorrow!

Stop with the food pictures, you are killing me!! Vacations are great, but it is always nice to be home.

Sounds like you had a lovely time. Our weather isn't too cheery just now, it is true, but I always find having a holiday makes me appreciate home more, however much I enjoyed the holiday.

It is good to be home & although I was dreading having to work today - it's been fine... :)

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
