Docker Teeth

Arinna & Giles

We are feeling very lucky to have shared our house again with such lovely people!

Over the last 6 days these guys have been a big part of our lives...
We have eaten together, talked until late & laughed lots. 
Last night we said our goodbyes with sadness & hope that one day we will get to visit them in Canada!

This morning we had to leave early for our home education group & on our return we had a fantastic surprise - a block of vegan chocolate & a beautiful card!

"Thank you deeply for providing such a great place to stay! We have felt so welcome and loved hanging out with you guys, sharing stories about shit, dockers, ghosts, nut cases, adventures...And on and on! 
An enriching experience for us to meet two 'switched on' people who are doing good in the world.
The food you provided for us was just fabulous! The beer/beverages were also magic...
Really, the house here provided such a good base for our travel adventure around the Cornwall area and we look forward to coming back one day.
You are both welcome (any time) to come and stay with us in Canada. It would be a pleasure. 
Continued good fortune, great health and happiness to you both as we depart..."
Wow!!!
We are truly astounded!

Arinna has inspired us to think seriously about the direction of our housekeeping business & Giles has impressed us with his motivation, energy & adventure stories!

Thank you so much guys - it's been an absolute pleasure!

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


Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…
