Chums & Chocs

Poor Sal has pneumonia & has been signed off work for another 2 weeks...
She's already been ill for over a week!

She is very weak, but she has Ryan - who is doing a fine job of nursing her back to good health...
And just to help her along - we've taken various supplements over: Vitamin C, Zinc & Propolis- to give her immune system a boost, Acidophilus as she's on antibiotics & Eucalyptus oil to inhale. We also took onions, garlic, thyme, fresh ginger, honey & lemons which are all fantastic in helping the body to recover from respiratory problems.

The little chickpeas will be celebrating their 6th anniversary this year!
And are very happy, which is lovely!

We hadn't realised just how alike Sal & Hugo are!
When she's well, Sal wears contact lens & since Rose got a job in the same supermarket - they get mistaken for each other...

Rose & Asa just live 5 minutes away from Sal & Ryan, so we visited them afterwards... 

But forgot to take the camera, so here's a photo taken last Summer!
They are both happy bunnies too & have been together a few years now...

It's great & we're very proud of them all.

Another very good reason for visiting Falmouth...

Asa's family sent us some home made chocolates.
His Mum & Sister make the most amazing assortment of delicious treats...

And each year they seem to get better...

This year's are outstanding!!!
We think they should seriously think about selling them!

It's cold again tonight at chez Smith...
And poor Sime is suffering with his eye again & has a cold sore - brute force is now in place to make him better!

Hope you're all having a good weekend.

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.
