All Change

Hugo has finally put his foot down...


And insisted that it's time...

.

To lose his lovely locks...


Sal last cut his hair just before we went to France in January last year...
Wished mine grew that quick!

We're a bit sad about it, as we always are when he has it chopped off... But we'll get over it & Hugo's thrilled to have short hair again, as it doesn't take so long to wash!
Our lovely lad!

Another change for us this week...


Our bright green paintwork on the house has changed...

Rose & Asa showing off our newly painted porch.

Yes we're getting very fashionable now - no more bright green...
We've gone for the more modern French grey!

The weather keeps changing too...

Thursday morning was dull, wet & miserable...
So much so - lots of campers were leaving our little peninsula & getting in the way of us getting Hugo to the train station!

 By the afternoon it was lovely & warm!
(there's our tipi again)

Before we arrived to pick Hugo up in the late afternoon - we had gone to work in Portmellon.
Within minutes of getting to the house we were cleaning, there was an almighty downpour & water was gushing down the bank - we just had to sit & wait in the car. Luckily, we were near the top of the bank & within minutes of the rain stopping - the sun came out & dried it all up again...

Hugo was helping & performing at Circo Kernow's playfest in Truro.
Unfortunately, we missed his performance because we were working... But we got to spend a couple of hours lying in the sun & chatting with our friends - who were also working at the festival.

The Big Top

Helen's funky new business!

Her crumpets are vegan & absolutely delicious.
We forgot to take a photo, but we had Helen's homemade vegan wild rocket & walnut pesto on our crumpets - which was also amazingly good!


 We've had a tiring day today & will no doubt have another long day tomorrow.
We do have Sunday & Monday off though - hooray!!!

Anyway, we must get to bed...

Night, night.

Hope you all have a good 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


A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …

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 …
