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!

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 …
