Funny Little Miracles

    

We took our car for it's MOT today & while in town, we decided to check out the local second-hand book shop, which used to be run by Oxfam - until they decided it wasn't making enough money... Luckily, a local charity which supports people with disabilities has taken it over & we popped in to have a browse.

In there I discovered three books on my list of wants & not only that - they had a "buy 2, get the 3rd free" deal on too, so I bought all three for less than £4 & they are all in very good condition!

Don't you just love it when amazing things like that happen?

Another miracle - The car passed!


Going out with the kidlets tomorrow for another birthday treat!
 Sime's booked a table for lunch at Sam's On The Beach, a place we've been meaning to visit for a while...

Think we'll have to smarten ourselves up a bit!

Have a good un

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
