Vicar Saves The Day

After another very long day yesterday...

We decided to just collapse in the garden of the big house we'd cleaned with a bottle of wine...

Then we remembered that we didn't have anything to drink it from...

So we swigged it...

While enjoying the view...

Nice...

Today, we had to take the car into the garage.
What we thought was a straightforward job has turned out to be more complicated...

We've had to leave it in the garage overnight & hopefully tomorrow it will be ready!
The problem is - we have 3 properties to clean...
We returned home on the bus & when we got off at our stop - the vicar & husband were there & offered us a lift home (which is a mile away from the bus stop). They have also insisted on lending us their car for tomorrow, so we don't have to let anyone down... 
Such lovely folks & they will soon be leaving for another parish... They will really be missed!

So the show will go on tomorrow & we have 2 new jobs, one is a holiday cottage & the other is a kind of motivational job to support a guy to get on top of his cleaning - being ex care workers means we seem to attract these kind of jobs... Makes life more interesting!


Hope you're all having a good week!

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
