The Smithlet Girls & Falmouth

Rose & Sal both live in Falmouth with their boyfriends.
They also work together at the same store...

We dropped Hugo off at the home ed group in Truro, where it was wet & windy...

And arrived in Falmouth in time for some lovely sunshine...

This is our favourite town centre street...

The Natural Store is one of our favourite shops - well, it's actually 2 shops now.
The first one sells groceries & the second sells supplements & has a deli...

There are lots of independent shops here...

And they are all pretty funky...

Something for everyone too...

Jam is our favourite music shop.
We haven't actually bought anything from them since purchasing our first Ani Difranco CD in 2004!
 But we do like going in to browse...

Vintage clothing...

 Antiques...

Stones make delicious organic bread...

A rather posh charity shop...

This is the window of an old hardware store.
We always wonder if anyone actually goes in to buy braces...

Steep climb up to the car park...

The old ambulance station...

Sime always likes to get a cheesy photo...
That's Marty Luck-Skull  in the forefront.
 We bought him in a voodoo shop in New Hope, Pennsylvania in 2000.
Marty was the manager of the hotel we were staying in & we thought it was a really great American name - even for a voodoo skull!
He used to have a thick mop of hair, but is now growing old gracefully.
Most people don't like him (he has an unusual face), but we all love him & he always travels with us - wherever we go!

We've loved seeing our girlies today & have really enjoyed catching up...
We do miss them, but know that they are both very happy & that makes us happy too!

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


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 …

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
