Cracked Earth & Weird Weather

Have finally been able to upload our weekend photos!

On Saturday, we went to Treyarnon Bay near Padstow in North Cornwall.
Although, it's only 40 miles away from where we live - it looks like they haven't had rain for a long time!

It's 7 years ago since we last visited this beach & it hasn't changed...

The tide pool to the left of Hugo is where the kids used to love swimming...

It was a bit chilly, but we walked from Treyarnon...

To Constantine...

And back...

Then it was off to Sime's first gig with the new band.

Some photos with the flash...
The guy in the wellies loved the music & danced all night!

Mart on the left, his brother - Dave on the right, Billy on drums & some old man on bass...

Who had to refer to his notes now & then...

Great music, Hugo & I really enjoyed it...
If all goes to plan - I'll be a lady of leisure by next year!
Wouldn't that be nice?

After an incredibly late night, we woke to blue skies & very warm sunshine - so we decided to spend the afternoon in Mevagissey...

The harbour always looks lovely when the tide is in...

We walked around some back streets...

And enjoyed the view from above...

Then headed back down again...

It's school holidays here, so it was quite busy with tourists...

Sime managed to get some lovely shots around the harbour...

We're not keen on Seagulls, they can be quite vicious -  but great timing!

Postcard worthy...

Another well timed moment!

After, we called at Portmellon & enjoyed more sunshine before heading home!

We seem to be having alternate days of hot & cold weather at the moment. 
Today has been chilly & wet - just hope it will pick up again soon!

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


A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …

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 …
