Hobnobbing

We had a really good time last night. 
Not only because we saw the ukulele orchestra...

But we also got to spend time with lovely friends too...

Margaret, looking radiant & Patrick - who's equally radiant!

This one was supposed to be of Sheila... Instead it's my lap!
 Sime's having a few teething problems with the new camera - he can't get used to not using a viewfinder!

The Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain...
They were brilliant & very funny too!

The highlight of the evening for Sime was on arrival we walked past Dave Gilmore from Pink Floyd.
He is on holiday & has attended the festival a few times - apparently... 
Sime was like an excited little boy jumping up & down as Dave walked past us, Sheila & I didn't have a clue who he was & neither were we that impressed once he explained. 
We also saw Ralph McTell, who's famous for the song "Streets Of London", but who cares? 
They're just people like the rest of us!

We were working in Mevagissey earlier, so had breakfast at our favourite cafe & on our walk back to the house - we stopped off to have a look in the little church - which was open for a change!

We do love old buildings & this has parts dating back to the 12th century.

It's been a good day.
Work wasn't too bad, we've eaten really well & managed to watch a film...

Happy bunnies again!

Night, night.

Kay & Sime xx

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…
