Freedom Manifesto



We've had this poster on our kitchen wall for many years & thought the beginning of a new year is a good time to share it with you...

The last days of 2011 have been very busy for us.
 Full of great times with family & friends...

The Dolphins Fly had a great last gig of the year & are all fired with enthusiasm...


And New Year's Eve was fun...
Sime joined up with local band Tin Fins in our local village hall & we had a good night.



But I got very drunk...

Spent most of New Year's Day in bed...

And felt so much better later on...

Back to work tomorrow!

I like your seasonal background, although it does emanate a certain chill.

Not sure about Anarchy. Much as I'd like a different system of government, if we had anarchy someone is bound to steal that loaf of bread you made, not to mention your spade,horse, quill and compost. Chances are someone would feel like burning down the village hall, too.

It is possible we have a fairly good system in an imperfect world.

Happy New Year everyone - though I'm sure I've already said this to you all on your own blogs...

Karin that's a good point, but we'd like to think of anarchy as living freely, with respect for others without any politics being enforced upon us - Wouldn't that be nice!

Catherine, it was red wine - a couple of glasses is my usual limit, but I ended up having a few more...

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 …
