Is Spring Here?

Today has been a beautiful day...

View from our garden.

Sunset was around 6.30pm here today.
Our clocks go forward tonight, so the sun will be setting after 7.30pm... Yippee!

The daffs are on their last legs...

The kitties love us being in the garden...

Beautiful Fleaby!

We've got quite a bit of tidying up to do...

We've been surprised to see garlic growing from being planted 2 years ago...

Lupe by the computer again...

Tired me... It's been a long week!

Our unplugged day tomorrow - I'm hoping to get some crocheting done, we also want to go nettle gathering... Though we still have guests to look after, so we shall see!

We actually have 4 days off cleaning work - which is nice...

We fell in love with this song, which is the theme tune from the French film, Paris - Seize The Day by Wax Tailor. It feels spring like... Hope you like it!

Night, night.

Hi K&S!

We've loved all your photos of Spring! Wasn't Saturday just the most amazing day, we spent most of it walking, reading outside and drinking tea outside...infact staying outside until the sun dipped behind the horizon!

It was wonderful seeing you and we are back down to Cornwall in August so must catch up then.

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
