Fruit & Nut Cases

We've had lots of messages from folks saying what nutters we are for driving through the waves the other day, though I don't know why I'm included - I didn't want to do it!
Saying that - we are used to driving through it, though neither of us have ever seen the sea that high before! 

Some years ago, we had a French student staying with us, Sime thought he would like to experience high tide down there, so he took him & Hugo .
They decided to take a chance, got out of the car, went up to the water's edge & then realised that a massive wave was about to hit them, they ran & jumped behind the wall of the end house. 
Needless to say - the wave shot over the wall & the three of them ended up drenched!
We've also heard stories of cars being swept away in that very cove - which is why the bollards are there...

Anyway, Sime wouldn't have taken a chance if he thought we were in danger... 

We really have to get to bed now. 
We have an early start tomorrow... Followed by a late night! 
We have 3 properties to prepare & then all the family are off to Sime's gig in Falmouth, so we'll get to see Sal & Ryan - which will be lovely!


Night, night.

You clearly don't like life to be dull, but that doesn't mean that you are mad necessarily. I hope the gig goes well tonight.

Thank you both - It's nice to be on the other side of all that work & now we're off to enjoy ourselves!

I like dodging waves. One of the funniest moments though was with my father. On holiday in Wales at Talybont near Barmouth. I had been in the sea for quite some time and my Dad came out to meet me - he opened his mouth to speak to me and got sloshed in the mouth full on by a wave turning. He promptly lost his false teeth which were washed away. One grumpy father and by was he grumpy! 9 hours later, on beach patrol looking for his teeth. we found them washed up. How lucky was that. To add insult to injury my brother had made friends with a lad on the site we were on; in a much later conversation it came out that his Dad made false teeth for a living. So one way or the other Dad would have been okay. That's what happens when you dodge waves.

Hope you are both okay and have a lovely evening

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 …
