Portmellon

Tonight's sunset after a lovely hot day...

And this morning... With Sime's latest quirky addition...
No, not Rose's hat... His Euphonium plant pot!
It's been hanging on the wall in what we call "The Jam Room" (musical jam rather than the sweet stuff) for years & now it is above the woodburner!

Night, night.

WHO LIVES IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS.......?

Oh, I just had a funny thought-what about your house appearing on Through The Keyhole!

Sime has a habit of collecting musical instruments... The Euphonium was free as it doesn't work, but he just can't help himself. Using it as a plant pot was one of his better ideas!

We are a family of hat wearers, especially Rose & Sime... Rose left a collection of her hats behind when she left home last year & Sime seems to be making good use of them!

We were just thinking how unusual our house must look to folks... Hahaha! I don't think anyone would know what to make of our decoration - it's just a mish-mash of weirdness!

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 …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
