Light At The End Of The Tunnel

At last work is slowing down...

We have 3 days off this week - which is fantastic!
This morning we slept in without setting the alarm - Woohoo!!!

In two weeks time, we are going back up to Stoke for a few days & then in just over 4 weeks - we'll be going on holiday.

Two whole weeks in Wales...

We're going to be renting a caravan on a farm at the foot of Mount Snowdon.

We used to go to Wales a lot many years ago.
When Sal & Rose were 5 & 3 - we walked up & down Snowdon...
It was an amazing, uplifting experience & the girls were fantastic walkers back then.
Everyone we met on that journey - stopped to say how impressed they were with our little girls!
Even when we managed to stray from the path & ended up climbing over a large crevice with a drop of probably thousands of feet - they remained calm & continued climbing with ease...
Unlike me - I went into panic mode as soon as Sime said don't look down!
I froze, cried & was convinced we were all going to fall to our deaths...
We didn't, of course & arriving at the top was wonderful - we climbed through the fog & there was this beautiful sunshine & blue skies & it was October.

So we're looking forward to reading lots of books, walking in forests, chilling out, eating good food & trying to beat Hugo at Scrabble!

We can't wait!!!

You are going to enjoy our holiday and I can't think of anyone who deserves it more.

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 …
