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!

Those meals all look delicious. I always liked veggie food and since moving here to Glaston, with its veggie cafes, I have gone into veg-overdrive! I just wish I could cook LOL

Hi Kath - We've visited some of those cafes in Glastonbury in the past & they're have been great!

You clearly don't need to waste money going to the gym in your line of work.

The hummus and mediterranean veg idea for jacket potatoes looks good. I'll have to try it some time.

Hey, you two need to take care of yourselves and get some rest. Keep eating those beautiful meals. I am drooling over the pictures.

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 …

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
