La Luna

On Monday, we enjoyed a get-together with lovely friends.
We shared delicious vegan food, most of which we forgot to photograph...
We had Sheila's delicious butternut squash curry, Magie's home made seedy bread, our rice & roasted buckwheat burgers.

I remembered to get the camera out for dessert.
Magie isn't vegan or veggie, but she especially made this vegan "Apple Crisp" for the first time.

It was so good & we were thrilled when she said we could take the leftovers!

We had a lovely evening overlooking the sea & Portmellon Bay.

And the moon was beautiful... Especially through Patrick's telescope!

Sime tried zooming in.

Talking of the moon always makes me think of this...

 Which I better dedicate to Sime, who has missed out (through no fault of his own - other than being a musician who has to practice) on the last piece of Magie's pud! 

Sorry... I'll make it up to you ♥

Tomorrow, we have to clean the house & prepare 2 or maybe 3 courses for some lovely folk coming for lunch... I told Sime I'd get prepared tonight & guess what? I haven't done a thing...
Hopeless. Case.

I'm sure it will all come together tomorrow!

Night, night.

I like this song, but sung by Van Morrison.

The best moon song ever? Blue Moon by The Marcels http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu4OkmzqK2E

It never fails to bring a big smile to my face when I hear it!

I love that song! The moon can be so pretty and it sounds like you had a lovely time. So awesome that you got to bring home the leftover crisp! Yum!!

Kath - Neither of us are Van Morrison fans, but I do love this song & VM's version is the only song of his I like... But for Sime, who's not even a fan of the song... He will tolerate Georgie Fame & me singing along! Blue Moon reminds me of Grease, don't even know if it's in the film...

Catherine - Thank you!

Molly - We did have a lovely, as we always do & the dessert was so good... We'll definitely try making it at home!

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 …

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
