Weekend

Friday night, instead of leaving Hugo to make his own way home - we decided to pick him up from a circus event at Falmouth University.
We were all hungry & thought it would just take too long to cook anything by the time we got home, so we  popped into Falmouth for a bite to eat...
As we walked into the Gurkha restaurant, we discussed contacting the girls - but thought it would be too short notice...
Sime said wouldn't it be funny if they were already in there & guess what?

A lovely little face was peering from a behind a partition... It was Sal! 
 She thought she'd heard us talking, so what a great surprise... She & Ryan had just arrived themselves.
Sal got in touch with Rose & Asa, but they were just about to eat at home...

Sal & Ryan had a veggie thali...

Hugo & I had vegan bhuna...

And Sime had a vegan dhansak.

Lovely kidlets...

And lovely chap...

Yesterday, we had to work - the weather was amazing...

The field at the top of our lane, the clouds were dense & very dark over St Austell...

A rainbow in Portmellon Bay...

We could see the rain in the distance...

On our way home, the dark clouds looked like a storm was brewing...

Neighbours across from us decided to let off fireworks last night - they hadn't bothered to tell the rest of us.
The kitties were totally freaked out, they have never experienced them before. Flea ran off, but came back after another neighbour asked for the fireworks to stop & Boswinger became it's usual peaceful place.
They know we have cats, so could have given us a knock...

This morning, Flea enjoying the sunlight through the shutters...

Sime reading yesterday's news...

Reluctant to let go of my beautiful sunflowers...

Rose & Asa bought them for me when I was in hospital...

Lupin enjoying a sneaky doze on the table...

Beautiful boy...

Both boys love the woodburner... 

And we just love being at home...

Hope you're all having a peaceful weekend!

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 …
