Shake It All About


I have had a wonderful birthday today - a day spent in the warm sunshine with my best friend!
I wish to thank my lovely chap for writing a  fantastic book (with help from Hugo with images) which has made me laugh & cry with happiness - something I will treasure forever!!!

And I must apologise for using our old CD alarm clock while ironing yesterday afternoon & forgetting to re-adjust the volume, before putting it back in our bedroom...
I accidentally left our Alice In Chains Unplugged album in there, so instead of our usual chilled morning wake up call - we were blasted out of bed with loud applause & whistling - well I think every birthday should start that way!!!

We've been to Fowey today & I'll post some photos soon...

Glad you have had a lovely birthday; bit drastic for the dawn chorus though. [hugs]

Happy Birthday Kay! Sounds like you're men have been spoiling you, as they should.

Good for you, having an alternative start to your day.

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 …
