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 …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
