Hungry For Change



If you consume a lot of processed foods then please watch this film: 


It's only available to watch for just over 24 hours, so don't miss it.

Jason Vale is in the film, he is the author of several juicing books...


I first came across this book in St Austell library & the juices are fantastic.

We go through phases of juicing lots & then not at all, but we love drinking fresh vegetable juices - though we hate the waste... We do compost it & have tried simmering the pulp & using the liquid as stock, but it tastes odd to us.

I've been very interested in raw foods since the 90s, when I came across a Leslie Kenton book in a charity shop. We started drinking juices with either spirulina or wheatgrass twice a day, but we've never fully embraced a raw diet - we love our cooked food too much! Though I do believe that raw organic vegan food is the best way to heal the body.  


From the same charity shop, again in the early 90s - I bought my first & favourite vegan recipe book...

It's covered in ingredients & is falling apart...

I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to eat better & learn more about cooking whole grains & pulses (legumes). The recipes are simple to follow & it's all just good wholesome grub. There are charts for grain cooking & sprouting, lots of nutritional advice & I've used the book hundreds of times!
I especially love the roast recipes & there's lots of them... Nut roasts, bean roasts, lentils, tofu...

 Anyway, don't forget to watch the film:

They discuss not only food, but face creams too & how people spend so much on them, but if you eat healthily - you won't need any face cream...
I used olive or hemp oil on my face for years & when we stopped buying oil - I bought some face cream from the health shop.
 It ran out months ago & now I just use soap & water - that's it!

My skin has never felt so good!
(Ignore the chicken neck)

It must be the tablespoon of ground linseeds (flax), hemp & chia seeds we take every day!

Time to go... Sime will be on his way home from a gig & I haven't washed up from dinner yet... Not that he minds, but I do!

Night, night.

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 …

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 …
