From Blue Skies...

This was our view on Wednesday...

Portmellon looked like a Mediterranean village...

It was 14C & warm enough for us to eat outside...

Last night the fog arrived & now it feels like Spring was never here...
Our lawn (more like paddock) which our landlord likes look after - glad he's left the daffodils! 

We could grow enough vegetables to feed the hamlet...
 Maybe we can persuade him this year - how long have we been saying this?

Our guest room is coming on & we hope to unveil it to the public next week(ish)...
Our landlord has offered to buy new curtains & anything else we may need - he really is a sweet man! 

Ok time to get on...
 We've got a mountain of work laundry to wash & iron, milk & bread to make, etc, etc.

Hope it's sunny where you are today!

Have a good weekend.
 We will - 2 days of work free bliss...

Kay (& Sime - who's out cleaning carpets) xx

Hi, Kay,
I just wanted to say that I think the picture in this post is one of the best I have seen of you. You look so healthy and your skin looks wonderful.
Have a great weekend.

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
