On The Go

I've been on the go since 6.45 this morning...
I made bread dough for 12 rolls, as it was Hugo's home ed group today & it was our turn as volunteers this week. 
We have to set off early to get cheap parking for the day & for the first time since helping out at the group - it really wasn't a chore to get up & get things done!
Once at the group we were non-stop, but we were organised - lunch was ready early (we made a big pan of vegetable soup to go with my rolls). The kids were chilled & we were too...

Since getting home, we made a feast of salads, vegetables & home made soya pulp burgers.
Sime went off to band practice & I've just carried on... I've made 2 loaves, a litre of almond milk, washed all our laundry & lovingly (hahaha) draped it on the airers in the spare room.

I continue to astonish myself with the amount of stuff I've become capable of doing - is it what we're eating or what we're not eating?
Well whatever it is... It's noticeable - our friend was also doing the group today - which was great, as we've not seen him for months. Now he & his Wife, are the kind of friends that will tell us straight if they think we don't look well or don't seem ourselves. 
Today, he made my day - saying he's never seen me look so well, that my skin is glowing, my eyes & hair look good & that I am positively beautiful!
(He's a herbalist, so that's a real compliment in my book)

I am so glad Sime has spurred me on to become vegan again & know that we'll never slip back to eating dairy & oil - we both feel too good!

For those of you who have emailed or asked about whether we're following a particular diet - sorry it's taken so long, but basically I would say we've been mainly inspired by Caldwell Esselstyn. I bought his book in January & read it aloud in a couple of nights - we were both hooked!
And 2 books which have been on our shelves for years:
&

We've sort of taken bits from all 3 books & done our own thing (of course)! 


Sime's just arrived home, so I'll finish tonight's waffle...

Night, night.

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.
