Eden Project Time of Gifts


Last week we went to the Eden Project's Time Of Gifts Winter Festival.

We enjoyed a lovely evening...

It rained, but turned out to be warm for this time of year...

Inside the Mediterranean Biome... 

Hot Air Balloon in the Humid Biome...

The Malaysian House in the Humid Biome...

The campfire outside...

And Sime with his lantern...
(Which he nearly burnt the house down with the other day)!

Our video of the music... We loved this song!

Enjoy!

Hi Catherine,

I can't believe he lit an outdoor lantern made of paper & wood & left it in the dining room... A few minutes later I heard a crackling noise & put my head around the door - the lantern had gone up in flames & one of the ceiling beams caught fire too!

He's just as nutty as a fruit cake!

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 …

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.



We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.


The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.



The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.


We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

Love Kay and Sime xx
