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.

OK, maybe I can explain a little. When God gets bored or old and retires, it is Dave Gilmour who will take over.
Bet you're impressed now, huh?

Hi Cathy! Shows how much I know... Sime's just told me that I spelt his name wrong!

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 …
