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.
(With another mystery hand)
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

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


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 …

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 …
