Windows

We're having another incredibly busy week...
 But are hoping that things will calm down for us soon.

A bit late for this really, but better late than never.
We're linking up with Jane's View From My Window...

On Thursday, we were out working all day. 
One of the jobs was our final clean at a house we have decided to quit taking care of.

The last time we'll see this view...
It's been a bumpy old road with this one & we're happy to be saying goodbye.

We also have one other that we will be finishing in a few weeks time - a job that takes up a lot of our time & energy, when all we really want to do is get our second B&B room up & running, so we feel the moment is right for moving on...

The view from our window.
The lilies are going to be chopped back this weekend & we'll see if they will pick up again.

We desperately need to get some weeding & tidying done.

Blue skies!
It's been lots milder these last few days...

Sunshine!
We haven't even had the wood burner in for the last two nights...

Our sitting room with the table & 2 chairs we've bought recently.
(£12 from the Salvation Army Shop)
The beautiful blanket was crocheted by a guest, Cathy who stayed with us last year.
We thought the table would be nice for guests to enjoy a cosy meal for two... But so far everyone just wants to eat with us!

We rarely use the room, but maybe we'll get in there this weekend...

Another rare occasion - Us sharing our window seat... We were a bit knackered!
Second day of full cleans & straight into making 2 course meals at home...
We don't mind though, as we've had fabulous folks staying with us.

Crushing Sime's knees, which is always good fun!

We just have 1 more day of cleans to do & then we've got 2 whole days off again.

We can do it!!!

Have a lovely 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 …

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.
