Temporary Residents

There must now be around a thousand people staying in our little hamlet...

SX0039 : Looking along the SWC towards Boswinger by Row17

When there are usually about thirty of us, but now & for the next 6 weeks we have to put up with the disruption - which comes from being sandwiched between a youth hostel & a camp site.

We don't blame folks wanting to have a piece of this beautiful place...


Our beach is one of the loveliest in Cornwall...


Enjoy your holiday people... Roll on September!

In the meantime, here is a sneaky peek at our living room...

The only before pic we took...

After - slightly less cluttered too!

Sime's got the pictures back up...

Just got to sort out the floor... 
We've discovered hard board under the carpet - we think there's a slate floor underneath.
Sometime soon, when the old furniture is all out - we'll have a think about what to do...


Bye for now...

Thanks Kath - yes the dangly things are lights. Rattan Christmas lights... We liked them so much that we kept them up!

The purple lady is a painting our Daughter, Rose did some years ago - she has a great imagination!

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 …
