Trebarwith Strand

We had the pleasure of meeting a blog friend & her family yesterday...
We suggested we met up at Trebarwith Strand, a tiny seaside hamlet close to Tintagel.

It rained heavily the whole time & the stream flowing into the sea was in spate...

And more like white rapids!

We had found this place on t'internet & thought it sounded nice.
We spent 3 hours chatting non-stop & the food was ok, but I was disappointed that they say on their website that the bread is home made, but it didn't seem it to us...

Being the greedy guts of the group - Sime & I had cashew nut & celery soup to start, then we had nut burgers - which were quite tasty (but the cheap white rolls were awful)!
The cafe owner was a bit loud & abrupt, he also made a little joke about us staying for so long...
Anyway, we were so busy chatting that we forgot to photograph the food, but nevermind...

It could have been better, so we're not going to give them a plug!

So who did we meet?

J, KL & Scarlet...  

Scarlet was everything we imagined - lovely, friendly, warm & northern! 
(We miss hearing northern accents down here, so that was a real treat)

Although Scarlet's blog is more about living frugally & renovating her home on a budget - which looks great!
I feel we have connected because of our poor treatment from the NHS... We also discovered that we both decided to research our (different) conditions, become experts & have made or are beginning to make changes to our lives - for the better!

Scarlet & J share a real bond...
They are very warm & gentle with each other & their daughter, KL
(who, by the way - is gorgeous)!

We are very happy to have met them all (though 3 hours just wasn't enough) & hope we get to see them again soon.

We have more guests arriving this evening from The Netherlands, so the birthday boy is pottering about!

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Kay & Sime

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 …

Being Grateful

We made a pact a few years ago that we would only leave Meadowcroft if we found somewhere really special to live. One of the most important things featured on both of our lists was to have stunning views, so when we found our French house - the view just blew us away!
We are still waiting for the sale to go through and so far, it's been nine months since our offer was accepted... The notaire discovered a slight glitch in that the terrace was actually owned by a neighbour. It was then agreed that the present owner of the house was to purchase the terrace and shortly before the sale went through the neighbour unexpectedly died... His estate is now being transferred to his brother, who is more than happy to sell the terrace and we have been asked if we would like to continue to wait. 
We are not in any rush and know that our little house will be worth waiting for...   Maybe the exchange rate will be more favourable by the time we go through the sale and in the meantime - we are maki…

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate...


But we know...
And this is one thing which makes living here difficult.
How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?  It just doesn't make sense.
