Joy Of Joys

My thyroid has become over active again!

Found out today that my T4 is 74 - it should be between 11 & 22...

I've known for a few weeks that things weren't right, but I was hoping it would all just disappear & leave me alone... Not a chance, it's here to stick around & I've got to deal with it yet again.

I think my body doesn't cope well with stress & exhaustion, so it's time to make some changes.
I know I will recover again - once we slow down & we have now made the decision that the crazy changeovers will have to go... 
This Saturday will be our last full day of cleaning & then we can take it a bit easier.

I am really hating work at the moment, probably because I am struggling physically - my muscles are weak, my heart is pounding at around 100 bpm, I am breathless, always hungry & losing weight.

The doctor has prescribed carbimazole again, but I really don't want to take it. 
Luckily, I have some herbal tincture left from last year  - though I've looked at buying more & it's proving very difficult... 
The government have decided to clamp down on the sale of complementary medicines & unfortunately, Bugleweed has been stopped. Apparently, it's an EU decision, but only the UK are following orders...
We think we live in a democracy - well we don't.

Why should I have to buy nasty drugs from my doctor, when I'd prefer to buy from a herbalist?
Why should I be forced into taking drugs that have caused diabetes & bone marrow disorders in so many patients? 
I have also refused again to drink radioactive iodine. 

I refuse to be used for research.
I will not be pushed into a corner by anyone. 
I know my body & I will do what is right for me.

Anyway, the good news is my iron levels are fine!!!


Time to book a holiday & come up with some new money making ideas!

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


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 …

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
