Work, Weather, Window Views & Night Walking

Hello everyone & sorry for our absence...
We've had lots of guests in over the last 2 weeks & done 14 house cleans in 8 days... Just crazy! Then there's been meetings, home education group, college open evening, as well as squeezing in a nice night out... 
It's all been very exhausting, so we're treating ourselves to an overnight staycation tomorrow - leaving Hugo to man the fort. 
Lots of our guests keep telling us to try out Airbnb for ourselves & that's what we're doing.
At some point soon, we'll hopefully find time to book our winter holiday with the kidlets - our sealed pot is filling up & mainly from generous guests & customers. 
See Saving For Travel's blog for more info.

We've had mixed weather this week, quite stormy & cold at the beginning, but on Wednesday night the sky cleared & the sun came out again...
Amazingly, it's been out ever since!

Better late than never... Linking up with Jane for the view from our window.
The lilies have bounced back & are starting to bloom.

Lots of greenery everywhere...

Wednesday night our local Transition Group met at the pub, so we just thought we'd make the most of the weather & walk.

On the way home...

We didn't see a soul...

Halfway point...

The moon & not quite dark at 10.30pm

Though it was very dark over the sea...


We are continuing to meet such wonderful folks from all over the place... 
In the last 2 weeks our visitors have come from Canada, China, Dorset, Italy, Liverpool & Portugal... 
Who would have thought our little hamlet would become such a draw? 
It's amazing & it continues to blow us away! 

We haven't managed to get our second room up & running yet... Hunger & tiredness keep getting in our way, as well as cleaning, washing, ironing & we can't decide what is worse... Being covered in dog hairs from 2 dogs who live in a house that hasn't been vacuumed for months or being covered in a week's worth of human dried skin secreted from used towels & bath mats... It's all pretty gross, especially when you're tired & hungry, wishing someone would turn up with a platter of delicious vegan fayre... Wouldn't that be nice? We often fantasise about getting up in the morning & discovering a fabulous banquet all for us or getting in from work & finding our table groaning with a beautiful feast... 

Perhaps if we keep up our wishful thinking - it may just happen one day...

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Night, night.

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…
