Life As We Know It

Apologies for yesterday's post...
For those of you who don't know Sime - he is a silly billy & you really shouldn't take much notice of anything he says!

Anyway, here's some photos of the last few days...

Gorran Haven
The beach was packed today - didn't look much like fun to us...

A very chilled out Floobs...
(He's Sime's baby boy)

Our new garden friend...
We call him Froggy the Toad!

And Waspy the Bee!

Sime's home made chilli & turmeric rice.
We use turmeric a lot - it has fantastic medicinal properties...
It inhibits the growth of cancer cells, protects the liver from toxins, can dissolve gallstones, lower cholesterol, alleviate joint swellings, increase joint flexibility & reduce menstrual pain.   

Leftover chilli, rice & salad with baked sweet potatoes & courgettes.
We bake the potatoes dry & sprinkled the courgettes with smoked paprika & soy sauce.

The view from work yesterday afternoon...
A dull, but humid day!

A similar view today from another property just further around the bay.
 The boat in the foreground is pulling 2 people in a dinghy at great speed!

A rainbow at the weekend - just for us...

And us at home tonight!

We've just watched a lovely French film called The Grocer's Son, which has made us want to go to France again...

But for now - we have more fun packed days ahead.
Cleaning houses in hot weather - not nice, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that this weekend's departures leave the cottages a bit tidier than last week... Haha!!!

Hope you all have a lovely 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.
