Never Too Late


The busy times continue & it's not only work & B&B...

In the last two weeks, we've received several calls regarding Bebe.
 Firstly, she'd phoned 999 to complain that her electric heater was too hot... So it was suggested that she really needs to be assessed & a week's respite was on the cards... She refused to leave the house, so the carers are providing more support to keep an eye on her.
Then we heard she smashed the socket that her heater plugs into & that she keeps turning her central heating off, so Sime asked the social worker to stick a label on the heating & we searched for an electrician. A couple of days later, it's all sorted... Then we get another call, Bebe's kettle has broken... So we've had one delivered today... Just hope everything will be ok now for a bit, although she does have cellulitis in one of her legs & we're struggling to track down the community nurses to find out more! 

Yesterday was my 47th birthday & although I don't worry about getting old... Age is definitely on our minds.
Our guests are always interested in talking to us about the lack of oil in our diet, the way we cook, our complexions & ability to eat large portions of food!

We have lots of books & information to share, so it's great to be able to do this.
Inspiring others to begin their own journey to good health & happiness is wonderful.

Nan always said "Wait till you're my age..." When we laughed at her complaints.
But she refused to believe there were other ways to deal with her many ailments & that's where we differ...
We have so much more knowledge about health & nutrition, our food choices are far better. We eat meals that are colourful & full of flavour & believe we enjoy good appetites because our food interests us.
If you eat bland food, you lose your appetite & once that happens - you become deficient in various vitamins & minerals, then illness creeps in...
If you're not sitting at every meal loving every morsel... Then do something about it! Likewise, if your food doesn't leave you feeling good, then you need to change the way you eat - it's simple!

Our guests also love that we don't have a TV & several have gone on to get rid of theirs or cut back on watching it. We have seen both Nan & Bebe become completely focused on TV to the point of mistaking it for real life & letting it become their main interest. When both in the early stages of dementia - they would only talk about things they'd seen on TV, like nothing else existed... So sad.
Life still goes on without TV, without constant knowledge of current affairs & all the folks we know who live without it seem to have much more satisfying & happier lives.

Fun. Enjoy life, laugh until you cry, do silly things.
We shall never grow up. NEVER!

Enjoy the video & we look forward to hearing what you all think too.

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 …

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.

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 …
