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!

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.
