Hope the sun will continue to shine for us...

Have a good weekend folks!

You both certainly get a lot of exercise with all of that cleaning! I often wish I had a more physical job. It would be refreshing!

Enjoy your time out! xx

Sounds like you two deserve some time to relax ~ you've been busy!

Wishing the two of you happy, sunny, joy filled days off!

dont forget to get your kaftan out of the dry cleaners LOL
What a busy time you’ve had! Hope you are having a lovely few days off and enjoying some wonderful weather.
Seeing the Minack Theatre brought back all kinds of memories for us. We love walking around Porthcurno and have passed the theatre many times but have never actually gone to a performance. Suzanne Vega is a blast from my past too. She’s great.
Sounds like you have a great community spirit. What a kind offer from the Vicar. Lovely to see you two enjoying yourself with the wine-French I noticed!
Congrats on those new jobs!

Funnily enough we found 2 massive kaftans the other day at the big house we were cleaning, we thought perhaps Demis Roussos had been visting...

See you tomorrow!

Thanks Sft - Porthcurno is a stunning beach, we always think it looks really exotic...

We do have lots of lovely folks around us & the vicar is just a sweet woman who everyone loves!

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
