Phew!!!

Another whirlwind of a week...
 Filled with busy work days, lovely guests & surprise family visit!

Last Thursday, we went to see the Eden Choir at the Eden Cafe with Asa's parents...

Melvin & Lesley also spent their last night in Cornwall at Meadowcroft.
Their second stay with us & we feel honoured to have them... Especially as it gives us chance to show our appreciation for Lesley's fabulous homemade Christmas gifts - which we have been extremely lucky to receive over the past few years... Including delicious homemade chocolates!

The Dolphins Fly played their first gig of the year...

Which was a crazy night & ended in a bar room brawl...

Nice though, as our friends came along too!

Gorran Haven Beach on Tuesday morning...

And 5 minutes later the clouds came over...

Lupe enjoying a roll in the dirt...

Fleaby fast asleep & stretched out...

We have loved having another couple return all the way from Canada.

Arinna & Giles have very much become good friends.
(Who does the creepy hand belong to?)

We had a fabulous feast in Truro!

Then Sal & Ryan turned up on Wednesday...

Just in time for dinner...

Even Hugo graced us with his presence...

And it was nice for Arinna & Giles to meet more members of the family...

Last night & toast for their 4th wedding anniversary!
With some rather nice top shelf champers...

About to leave us yet again...

Our Thursday view... From the front door.

Linking in again with Jane.

Last night's view - overlooking Mevagissey Lighthouse...
(We didn't finish work last night until 8pm)

Tonight's wonderful dinner... 
(Thank you to a lovely Simey) Chili, rice & roast potatoes!

We have received some fabulous gifts from guests...

From chocolate, soap, wine, handmade blanket, wooden mini kitchen utensil ornament, wine glasses, massage, meal out, maple syrup to a beautiful pebble!

Thank you, thank you, thank you - we feel incredibly humbled!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.

Love Kay & Sime

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 …

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥

An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes... Peppers stuffed with Puy …

Year Of Adventure

A bit late, but Happy New Year! :-)
We had a lovely time with all our kidlets over Christmas, which has made quite a change - the first time in years that we have all managed to be under one roof during the holiday period! 
We are so pleased that we could do this, as this was to be our last one at Meadowcroft...  Yes, not only are we buying our little French house (which will need lots of TLC before we move in), but we have decided to downsize to a small house overlooking the sea while we visit France and just enjoy ourselves!

We only made the decision at the beginning of December, which meant we needed to get busy decluttering...
Taking the opportunity to move from our big place in Boswinger to a small, very lovely, fully furnished one bedroom converted garage near to Mevagissey...

This was the view from our bedroom early this morning.

We were supposed to be managing the property as a holiday let for our friends, but after having a few days break here - we fell in love with it!!!
So…
