Coffee & Colds


It's not very often that we get colds, but about 3 weeks ago - Sime had one out of the blue & no-one else in the family got it...
 As usual, he suffered terribly for a couple of days & made sure we all knew about it!
He's such a big baby when he's ill & I do try to be sympathetic, but I did end up telling him to pull himself together!

Anyway, I'm feeling rather guilty now, as Hugo started with it at the weekend & he never causes a fuss, but he really was ill for a couple of days & guess what...
I started with it on Monday & have just had 2 lousy days of feeling crap!
And you know what else? Sime has cared for us brilliantly (which he always does) & he never complains... He's done all the cooking for the last few days & really pampered us.
So not only do I feel ill, but I feel such a horrible git too. 
Next time Sime is ill, I promise to be more thoughtful & caring, I won't utter the words "typical man" or "man flu" again...

Luckily, we had a day off work today, as it was Hugo's home ed group & Rose was today's volunteer, along with our friend, Simon. 
Not wanting to waste our day, we decided to head to Falmouth - where Sime was hoping to get some work done on one of his bass guitars... 
While there, we visited our favourite veggie cafe - Cafe Cinnamon, where I was treated to 2 black Americanos & some lovely pastries.

I wasn't feeling well at this point, but soon perked up with a couple of coffees inside me!

The pastries were good too!

It's a lovely place & it was nice & warm again today!

Later on, we bought a Fal Falafel, which was so delicious - that we forgot to take photos...

I am trying to be cheerful! 

Need to be better for tomorrow, as we've got 2 busy cleans...

[Hugs] Kay hope you and Hugo are all feeling a lot better soon. The pastries look delicious no wonder you perked up. I would have too. Hope you are cold free soon

Take care

There's nothing as miserable as a cold. I hope you throw it off soon.

That's the trouble with (some) men, they make such a fuss when they are only a little bit ill that it's hard to tell when they are really ill. ;-) I blame it on their mothers.

I hope you are well enough for the two big cleans tomorrow. It sounds a lot even if you are feeling well.

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 …
