Festival Season Begins

Another busy day yesterday...
We had three holiday properties to prepare for guests & then had to drive over 40 miles to a festival in the West of Cornwall - where Sime's band were performing.
We have friends who live near there, so they joined us too - which made for an enjoyable evening!

The guy behind the festival is known as Bones & this was his way of showing folks the way!

Our friends' Daughters - Biby who had a great time playing with all the little people...

And Madi, who was bored & tired...

Along with Hugo!
Only a few years ago, the 2 of them would have been running around & exploring...

There were lots of young families there & it brought home to us how removed we are from all that now, our kids have moved on & we do things differently. For instance, lots of families were camping overnight in small tents on a slope, we would have done that too - years ago, but now we prefer to be comfortable & the three of us were happy to be coming home! The last time we camped was in France in 2009 & we found it to be so noisy, with lots of children crying through the night or up early in the morning - that we vowed not to do it again, unless it was on a small, quiet site...

It was still a lovely place to be & the atmosphere was great. There were other musicians playing & some good veggie grub. The only problem was that I managed to bugger up the camera, so half through it started misbehaving & my phone camera is rubbish from dusk - so we were disappointed to find very few good photos...

Though I did get a couple of the band early on...

Thank goodness!

The ever affectionate Husband!

Hope you've had a good weekend.

Kay :)

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

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 compost loos.

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


Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…
