St Ewe Country Fair

St Ewe is another small village in our parish & is about 2 miles away from where we live.
The country fair is a big annual event & our transition group had a stall, so we went along to help out.
This is the first time we have visited the fair - we are not really keen on seeing animals being made to perform & this was the main attraction.
As it was our day off & we were still exhausted from the last couple of days, we didn't turn up until the afternoon...

After torrential rain early morning, it turned out to be quite a hot day...

Dog Show

Looking for our stall...

The muddy man was saving or trying to save goals...

Tractor

Plate smashing...
Such a bizarre waste of crockery!

Craft marquee - people selling their wares...

Alpacas on parade.

Not really a typical British event...

Shire horses...

Cute lambs to look at & stroke.
For us, it's sad to think what happens next to them...

Traditional pipe organ which was playing 'Is this the way to Amarillo?' as we passed...

Falcon

Beautiful bird

Alpacas...

In their tiny pen...

They were all crammed in a trailer & trying to kick their way out as they were leaving...
We also saw one of them spit in their owner's face - which we enjoyed seeing! 

Tug o' war...

8 sheepdogs in the back of a pick up truck! 

Transition St Goran's stall.
Making Gorran Greener or at least trying... 

We made some money on the raffle, which will go towards future events...

Kuti from Cotna

Anna making windmills with the kiddies...


We have another day off today - which is wonderful...

So we're going to venture out somewhere nice!

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


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 …

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 …
