Happy Holidays

We have just booked another holiday for next year...

The owners of the holiday homes we take care of are not going to be happy!

But it's been a long time since we've had a Summer holiday, so we will be camping in France for a couple of weeks & we're already excited!

We've also heard from our lovely friends who live in Switzerland & we're hoping to visit them for the Winter Solstice... 

Our not going abroad idea didn't last very long - time to update the passports!!!

Which part of Switzerland do your friends live in. I've just come back from another few days in Lausanne, and the scenery is stunning, although I'm not so sure about being there in Winter.

Thanks Mel & Karin - our friends live in Basel.

I understand you can see 3 countries if you stand on the right spot in Basel, but I think they have built a busy road on the spot, so it could be dangerous.

The town looks lovely and I'm sure there are some splendid views in the vicinity.

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 …
