Busy Bees

We seem to have been zooming around  all over the place just lately...
Working, time with the kidlets, meetings & seeing friends. 
The weather is constantly changing, so we've found ourselves wrapped up in too many layers, not warm enough or soaked to the skin...

We've had far too many late nights & early mornings, but it's been lovely!

Here's a look at the last week...

A meal at Olive in Truro.
Not really good enough for the price... And we were soon hungry again!

But we got to see the girlies!

Lad's & dad's time...
Probably talking complete nonsense as usual!

Dark & cloudy day...

Storm coming in...

Warm & sunny breakfast time...

Porridge with blueberries.

My lovely little coffee pot.

Our garden...

This is Sea Breeze - it spreads all over the place & I love it!

So does this little chap...

Organised chaos - our laundry room.
AKA Nan's room.
The photo doesn't show the huge bags all over the floor!

Bored & tired of ironing...

Out for another meal... In Falmouth.
Forgot to take a photo, but our meals were delicious & they were very knowledgeable about vegan food!

Remembered to take a photo after we'd eaten though...
We used to do home from home care up north & V was a young woman who came to stay with us every week to allow her parents to have some free time. 
We have remained friends with her & her folks ever since. It's been 6 years since we last met up, so we had a lovely time! 

V lives in a supported house, but still sees her family at least twice a week.
We were forced to stop caring for her when she moved, because Sime & I worked for the same network at the time.We were all upset that our relationship couldn't continue, but at least since coming to Cornwall - we've been able to be in touch again!
We left with promises of not leaving it too long until next time!

Our nettle beer is ready to drink...
 Cheers!

And as I type - we have another brew simmering away on the stove & it smells divine!

Sime's performing at two festivals with the Dolphins over the next couple of days, as well as fitting in time to work...

Is anyone else doing nice things this weekend?

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

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


A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …
