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?

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!
