Earth Day Birthday

Last night, we spent Earth Hour with members of our local transition group.
These are the folks who are making good things happen in our community, who care about others as much as themselves & we are very lucky to be a part of it all...

Around Sara & Dave's Bonfire at Cotna

It was a chilly night, so great to have the warmth of the fire.

We shared a delicious candlelit feast & finished off with Margaret's yummy cake!

Which she put put candles in for the birthday girl!

Thank you M xx

Dave's fire was brilliant!

Jane & Richard - with a groaning table of food behind...

We had a splendid evening, great food, lovely people in a beautiful place...
And power free too!

Sime was the photographer so not leaving him out - here's one of him at the Eden Cafe yesterday!

I'll get you back on your birthday mate!

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 …
