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...

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 …

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥

An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes... Peppers stuffed with Puy …

Year Of Adventure

A bit late, but Happy New Year! :-)
We had a lovely time with all our kidlets over Christmas, which has made quite a change - the first time in years that we have all managed to be under one roof during the holiday period! 
We are so pleased that we could do this, as this was to be our last one at Meadowcroft...  Yes, not only are we buying our little French house (which will need lots of TLC before we move in), but we have decided to downsize to a small house overlooking the sea while we visit France and just enjoy ourselves!

We only made the decision at the beginning of December, which meant we needed to get busy decluttering...
Taking the opportunity to move from our big place in Boswinger to a small, very lovely, fully furnished one bedroom converted garage near to Mevagissey...

This was the view from our bedroom early this morning.

We were supposed to be managing the property as a holiday let for our friends, but after having a few days break here - we fell in love with it!!!
So…
