Sun, Sea & Dolphin Music


We're getting into the swing of things again - working hard & getting organised. 
It's such a great feeling & I love it when it all goes like clockwork!
Today, we were up & out early, 4 properties to prepare for this weekend's arrivals...
 Last night's business meeting* paid off & so everything was completed with time to spare! 
We even had time to visit our favourite cafe in Mevagissey for a cuppa, which has just re-opened after the floods in November & enjoyed soaking up the sun for a short while in the grounds of one house - so it's been a good day!

*In other words - sitting at our dining table, drinking herbal tea, eating home-made chocolate brownies, me making suggestions for our day ahead & taking notes, while Sime just agrees to everything & doodles.


The weather is wonderful, blue skies & so warm, though I suppose it's scary & not normal for this time of year - but still very welcome. We seem to have bypassed spring & gone straight into Summer, which probably means it will all be over by June & then will get cold & wet again...

We're working again in the morning, then tomorrow night - Sime has his first gig with The Dolphins Fly. He's learnt 22 original songs in 5 rehearsals & played along with their CDs whenever he's had a chance, so he's ready (though he doesn't think so). 


Hugo & I are going along tomorrow too & I'm really looking forward to it, as for the first time in nearly 25 years - I actually like the music he'll be playing! 
The gig is near to where we used to live in North Cornwall, so we're going early, taking a picnic & will be checking out our old haunts - hopefully, we'll have nice weather again...


Hope you all have 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 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 …
