Fat Busters

So far this week - we have cleaned 8 properties...
Each clean is thorough, more like a spring clean & our bodies are starting to fight back!
We have both been suffering with all sorts of aches & pains, hobbling around, grunting, yawning & laughing hysterically - which is what happens when we're overtired!

We did make a discovery last week - we've both lost weight...
 We haven't been eating as well as usual, just because we've been working & by the time we've got home - we're too knackered to make anything substantial.  We seem to experience this every holiday season... Eventually our bodies get stronger & we suddenly realise that we have bags of energy & feel really well - can't wait!


The only problem is that Sime being even more active than me with his bands (carrying heavy equipment & standing up performing after working all day), has now lost over a stone in weight within two weeks. He's naturally slim & loses weight really easily (the git), so he's got to think about refuelling more often. Whereas thyroid drugs slowed my metabolism right down, so I am quite happy with the half a stone that I have lost - at least it's a sign that my body is at last working as it should - yipee!

This week, we've taken a bit more care of ourselves - with some decent home cooked grub & we've also eaten out a couple of times...

Our favourite cafe in Mevagissey - Number 5.
Where we opted for a rather nice Houmous & Roasted Veg Jacket Spud.

And today, we visited the cafe at The Lost Gardens Of Heligan & had Cauliflower Cheese...

Sime with roasted veg, broccoli & potatoes.

And I had salad & edible flowers - which was very nice!


We're off to Falmouth soon for another entertaining evening of music, so better get ready...

Hope you all have a great weekend!

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 …

Being Grateful

We made a pact a few years ago that we would only leave Meadowcroft if we found somewhere really special to live. One of the most important things featured on both of our lists was to have stunning views, so when we found our French house - the view just blew us away!
We are still waiting for the sale to go through and so far, it's been nine months since our offer was accepted... The notaire discovered a slight glitch in that the terrace was actually owned by a neighbour. It was then agreed that the present owner of the house was to purchase the terrace and shortly before the sale went through the neighbour unexpectedly died... His estate is now being transferred to his brother, who is more than happy to sell the terrace and we have been asked if we would like to continue to wait. 
We are not in any rush and know that our little house will be worth waiting for...   Maybe the exchange rate will be more favourable by the time we go through the sale and in the meantime - we are maki…

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate...


But we know...
And this is one thing which makes living here difficult.
How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?  It just doesn't make sense.
