Blog Awards

We have received these awards recently & would like to thank the ladies who passed them on to us...


Firstly, it was a while ago that Karin passed this on to us & we apologise for not saying anything sooner... Here is Karin's Blog about her garden & it's transformation.  
Also from here you can click on to her other blog: Green And Generous.

We have followed Karin since coming across her during No Impact Week over a year ago & have found her posts to be both interesting & thought provoking.
Karin & her Husband are training to be beekeepers, so it's a very exciting time for them.
They also keep some rather beautiful chickens!


Also a while ago, we received this award from Mum, who doesn't actually follow us, but occasionally makes comments... She can be found here: Mum's Blog & it seems to be a very happy blog!


Lastly, this is from Mrs Thrifty, who is a new follower & already we have found her blog very inspiring.
Here it is: Mrs Thrifty's Blog.

Thank you ladies!

And here are some other blogs well worth checking out: 

Mels Backyard - We love Mel, along with her straight talking. Her blog sometimes makes us laugh out loud & sometimes has us in tears... A wonderful brave woman!

Hillside House - Kath is inspiring, always on the go, always very jolly & has recently taken up vegetarian cookery!

 The Wandering Wonderers - A home educating family who took a year out to travel around organic farms in the UK & have now started a new life on a tiny Scottish Island. Love It!

Last Biscuit - Sooz is an inspiring young woman. She's into everything green, is vegan & makes lots of lovely things to sell!

Just Gai - Gai blogs about life in Bristol. She's trying to live greener & is planning to have 2 meat free days a week.

  Tarragon And Thyme  - Pattypan is another busy lady, always doing - while dreaming of a rural life. We're sure she'll get there one day!

Hope you enjoy checking these folks out!

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 …

Ar Wyliau

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!
