Hat Saturday

Work has slowed down & it's wonderful!
We've had 2 whole days pottering about at home & it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Tomorrow, we're heading up to Stoke for a few days, where we'll be staying in a warm hotel room.

Unlike here where it's very cold... Shower time, in particular has become quite a challenge, as our bathroom is freezing.  
One consolation though - we have discovered we can hit some really high notes when singing our favourite opera pieces & our pogoing has taken on new heights! 

We're still determined to get through the Winter without our heating & thanks to Rose...

We're doing it in style!
(She left them behind when she moved)

Time for bed & see you all soon.

Aren't you worried about burst pipes? Our heating is on a thermostat which only kicks in when the temperature falls below 18 degrees. I've taken to sitting on the sofa wrapped up in a fleece blanket to keep me cosy.

Gai - it very rarely gets below 4c in our part of Cornwall, but if it does - we might re-consider!

Mel & Sooz - thank you, we have thermal underwear & hot water bottles, so we're fine!

Kath - wait till we get on our home brew over Christmas...

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 …
