Thanks for posting, I love your videos!

Kath - We're the same... I thought a 9" plate was for the side dish! Saying that though, we do tend to eat more veggies than anything else, I'm sure you're the same!

I'll have to see if our library has this book. I'd love to read it! I read Peace Is Every Step when I was a teenager and just loved it.

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
