This Morning

After what seems like weeks of wind & rain...
I woke this morning to birdsong & sunshine!

So I threw open the window to take this...

Then quickly got dressed & dashed outside...

I hadn't realised how noisy the wind had been until it became peaceful again.
Being outside early just made me feel like taking a walk...

Sime has been feeling a bit grotty over the last couple of days, so I left him in the land of nod...

And took off to the beach... 

It's been a while since I've been further than this...

But I really wanted to go all the way today...


This water comes off the hillside & joins the sea.
The beach is on the right...

It's like a river at the moment...

Our lovely beach...

The water is so noisy you can barely hear what I'm wittering on about!

The walk back up the winding lane...

Nearly home & the sun started to come over the hill...

A beautiful start to the day...

So glad I did it & am feeling rejuvenated!

Thanks Guys - just reminded me even more why I am totally in love with Cornwall - the peace and quiet - I was there with you. A brief sojourn after a stressful few days at work. Its just the sort of thing I do go rambling early on when I am down there or just sitting watching the dawn come up.

One day - you may have company.

Take care

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 …
