High Impact Week

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...


Goodnight!

Kay & Sime xx

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Being Grateful

We made a pact a few years ago that we would only leave Meadowcroft if we found somewhere really special to live. One of the most important things featured on both of our lists was to have stunning views, so when we found our French house - the view just blew us away!
We are still waiting for the sale to go through and so far, it's been nine months since our offer was accepted... The notaire discovered a slight glitch in that the terrace was actually owned by a neighbour. It was then agreed that the present owner of the house was to purchase the terrace and shortly before the sale went through the neighbour unexpectedly died... His estate is now being transferred to his brother, who is more than happy to sell the terrace and we have been asked if we would like to continue to wait. 
We are not in any rush and know that our little house will be worth waiting for...   Maybe the exchange rate will be more favourable by the time we go through the sale and in the meantime - we are maki…

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate...


But we know...
And this is one thing which makes living here difficult.
How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?  It just doesn't make sense.
