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!

Its lovely when serendipity intervenes and provides what you have been looking for - that means its meant to be. The restaurant looks a nice place - hope you have a good time with the young people and hope you get spoiled rotten.

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 …

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 …
