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

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 …

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …
