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 …

Being Grateful

We made a pact a few years ago that we would only leave Meadowcroft if we found somewhere really special to live. One of the most important things featured on both of our lists was to have stunning views, so when we found our French house - the view just blew us away!
We are still waiting for the sale to go through and so far, it's been nine months since our offer was accepted... The notaire discovered a slight glitch in that the terrace was actually owned by a neighbour. It was then agreed that the present owner of the house was to purchase the terrace and shortly before the sale went through the neighbour unexpectedly died... His estate is now being transferred to his brother, who is more than happy to sell the terrace and we have been asked if we would like to continue to wait. 
We are not in any rush and know that our little house will be worth waiting for...   Maybe the exchange rate will be more favourable by the time we go through the sale and in the meantime - we are maki…

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate...


But we know...
And this is one thing which makes living here difficult.
How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?  It just doesn't make sense.

Both the posters are from the Cornwall Vegans website.
