Nice People

Today was one of those rare occasions...
When one meets a stranger & instantly hits it off...
Well for us - 2 strangers, who are staying in an apartment we look after.

What lovely people.

One minute we are just asking if they are having a good week & the next thing we know...
We'd been sitting, chatting & laughing non-stop for a couple of hours, drinking tea, eating biscuits & cake!

A great way to break up our day & we finished off our work feeling rejuvenated.
I have a feeling that we will see these folks again & hopefully, we've persuaded them to come back - maybe even to live in Cornwall!

Sometimes a chance meeting like that can make a difference to peoples' lives...
It was good fun for us & we've ended the day on a high!

All the guests this week are lovely & it's an absolute pleasure doing this job when we feel appreciated!


Tired, but happy!

That is so wonderful. It certainly makes up for some of the jerks you have to deal with.

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 …
