Early Morning Sunshine

The view from our dining room window this morning...

Even though it's very windy & the windows are rattling... It's still a beautiful start to the day!

Our glass snow flake is a permanent fixture - a friend made it some years ago & we really like it. So along with our fairy lights - it always looks like Christmas in here!

We usually get a tree around the 21st, either save one which would be turned to sawdust or we'll get a potted tree, which will then live in the garden.

Time for second breakfast, we do have to work today - though we're in no rush...

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Kath - How funny... It's what we have when first breakfast was early, we've obviously been subconsciously influenced by Mr Tolkien!

Jane - And why not? We were given a small artificial Christmas Tree years ago, which we'd accidentally left up & none of us noticed for ages. We decided to leave it up & other people's reactions were funny - most would see it & not say anything, but obviously thought we were complete nutters. The kids thought it was great!

Very pretty view and the snowflake certainly adds a nice touch! I love stuff like that. :)

I love mornings that you can relax a bit and enjoy the beauty. Wonderful! And your stew below - yum!

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.
