This Morning's View

It's actually been warm enough to eat breakfast outside...
Yippee! 

We just want to make the most of the sunshine - though do have a huge house clean to do today.
A clean that I really am not keen on, but Sime thinks we should continue with...  
And just because we're totally insane, we're going to meet a potentially new customer in a few minutes.

Linking up with Jane's View From My Window.

The perfect time to be here...
Blue skies, warm sunshine & just the sound of birds singing!

A gorgeous view (in my opinion) through our rather grubby dining room window!
Sime's finally hacking back the poor lilies.

Gloopy porridge for brekkie...

And a cuddly kitty loving the sunshine...


They both love us being outside with them...



We've got dandelions everywhere, which I'm hoping our lovely landlord won't mow down before we get a chance to pick them - he thinks he's helping us out by keeping the grass down & making it look nice for guests, but we want to make wine...


It's going to be a long day & we don't expect to be home until tonight...

Hope you're all having a warm & sunny week!

Love Kay (& Sime)

I love that photo of your sitting area, I don't think I've seen that view before, what a lovely sunny place to sit.
I'm making your nettle soup recipe tonight (and yes I will remember to take the bay leaf out LOL).

We make dandelion wine every year. Do you make dandelion syrup too ? It's noisy with birds here too....love it!

It's nice, but gets a bit breezy most of the time - we've really missed sitting out...

Hope you enjoy the soup - have a great weekend!

Love K&S xx

We've never made it, but have wanted to for years & promised ourselves that we'd make some this year, though Sime's leaning more towards dandelion beer instead... Syrup sounds a nice idea - need to check that out!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love Kay & Sime xx

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 …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
