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...

Happy Birthday Kay! Sounds like a fab day and I LOVE the idea of your book as a gift.
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 …

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
