The Four Fs

We arrived home late last night & it's been a successful trip, although there's no news on my Uncle - as he's still in the coroner's hands...

We enjoyed more FOOD
A plate of vegetables & a yorkshire pudding for £4.25 at The Trentham Hotel.
We visit there every time we go up...

Flowers for FRIENDS, whose Son died on New Years Day.
We haven't seen them for over 10 years & we used to care for Nick, when we both worked for Social Services. He was 31 years old & had a condition called Lowe Syndrome. His funeral took place while we were in France, so we're glad we got a chance to spend some time with his parents - who are lovely folks!

Two days after this building caught FIRE & they're still putting out the flames!

We went to have a look at this cook shop yesterday (on the right) & spent well over an hour chatting & eating in the tea room above...

It was real treat!

Sime couldn't resist these Staffordshire Oatcakes filled with cheese & mushrooms.
Finished off with a pot of Raspberry Leaf Tea (no he's not pregnant - just odd)!
Yes, the veganism seems to have gone out the window...

And I opted for scrambled egg, tomatoes & red onion on toast.
They were both delicious & no doubt we'll visit again.

Happy FAMILY
 Bebe is doing really well & she didn't dance or sing at her appointment... 
But when asked in the bank if the assistant could help with anything else - she asked for a glass of white wine & a young man to drink it with!!!

I have been experiencing The Four F's around here. Unfortunately, they aren't as nice as yours.

Perhaps she just has a quirky sense of humour!

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 …
