We have cleaned 12 properties in the last week & occasionally have worked into the evening.
We seem to have been out lots too & so we ended up shelving No Impact Week because we really didn't have time to think about it - let alone do it!
So as well as clean...
We visited St Ives Guildhall...
And saw Mark Thomas
Who was a brilliant storyteller...
We ran the home education meeting & fought off a church cafe - who had taken over our space during the Summer & who announced that the kids were no longer allowed to play in the music room.
The place is a teenage centre which we get to use during the day, we use it because it is perfect for teenagers - a fully equipped music studio in the attic, a kitchen - where we can support the kids to dish up some lunch & it also has a basement for chilling out in.
So a battle began... Sime & the kids decided to continue with their usual racket & yesterday, we heard that the church group want to swap their day - phew!
It's been a lovely time of catching up with friends & enjoying meals together - it seems such a long time since we last did it, so thank you - a delicious meal cooked by Jane, Simon, Madi & Biby - as wonderful as ever guys! You know we'll pay you back in the Winter...XXX
And a fab meal out with Lesley & Melvin in Fowey - we had a great night out & look forward to doing it again! XX
We also caught up with our friend Stuart O'Connor, who is a real-life troubadour, a lovely, lovely guy & we are all very fond of him.
This time he was touring Cornwall with a friend from Japan, Goga.
We're going on holiday in a few days time & at the same time, Rose & Asa will be moving out...
They have found a garden flat in Falmouth, so will be near to Sal & Ryan.
We are really pleased for them, but it is also sad too - our baby girl is leaving us & we will miss her terribly. We know from experience it will get easier in time & it's going to be lovely for the girls to be close again.
It's going to be strange returning home to an empty house, but we'll not think about that just yet...
Kay & Sime xx
