Fog & Family

We've had gloomy fog here today...

And warm sunshine in Falmouth this afternoon.

Sal & Ryan were visiting from Bristol for the day, so we enjoyed a catch up!

Night, night.

As it's now a month since your last post, I'm hoping it's only pressure of work - or an unexpected holiday in Hawaii - that is keeping you away. Looking forward to seeing your update - and good news. xx
Spooky Fog! I love your report!

Lovely to see you catching up with loved ones in style.

Hello! I found your blog (which is very nice) while looking for a home education group anywhere from Truro to Penzance. You mentioned running one, is it still going?? I home-schooled my daughter, and she now wants to home-educate her son (5) too, so I'm trying to help her find anything going on for young children. (It's not so much the education side that's the problem, but finding any kids over 4 to do things with who aren't in school! :))

Thanks,
Barbara

Really getting concerned now. :( I do hope you are both well.

Hi Rambler,

Sorry - we are absolutely fine. Just having long days with work & B&B guests... Making breakfast at 6.30am, going off to work, then coming home & straight into making dinner for guests & entertaining sometimes until after 12am... Any spare time, we like to do something nice or stay in bed!

Sime still takes lots of photos, so I'm sure we'll get them on here at some point.

Sundays are still unplugged for us & it's fantastic. We go walking, potter about in the garden & read. I am crocheting squares & Sime's growing some veggies in pots. So life is good... Exhausting, but we're happy & planning a couple of holidays, as well as continuing to save for a trip with the kidlets next year.

Hope you are well.

Kay :)

Hi Barbara,

Sorry for not replying sooner.

We're out of touch with local groups for little ones, but there is a closed group on FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/149214708503763/

You should find up-to-date info & there's always lots going on.

Kay :)

Phew!!! So glad you're busy in a good way - and delighted that your Sundays are still Special. I'm happy now! :)
Karin said…
Just thought I'd say 'hello'. I seem to be too busy to blog myself at present, so can't complain. Glad to see you were fine a few weeks ago.

I too was concerned by your lack of posts, and relieved to hear that you're all alive and well. Not that I've been posting much recently myself! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to hearing all about it when life gets quieter.

Calling in as missed the regular posts (and comments on our blog too). Glad all sounds happy and busy, look forward to an update post soon :)
Rambler said…
Missing you both - and hoping neither of you have succumbed to illness. xx
Rambler said…
Hi Kay & Sime,
I'm really missing your posts and keep regularly checking in to see if you have been and posted - but no .
Is it that you no longer have the urge to blog about your days? Maybe other things have taken over or maybe you have managed to get away for a holiday tour to pastures new.
I wish you well, whatever you are doing - but I do miss you. xx
The Smiths said…
Thank you for being so concerned Rambler!

We are fine... Doing the B&B, as well as our day job has just been incredibly time consuming. We've also had a few trips away, though they have been great - we haven't really managed to get completely away from work & problems surrounding Bebe (Sime's mum)... One of our phones would ring everyday with various problems to deal with!

Anyway, things are set to change for us, so we're hoping to have a little more free time for blogging again!

Watch this space!!!

Bye for now, K&S xx
Rambler said…
Yay!!!! Thank you for replying; so glad to hear you're both OK and will be posting again asap.
Karin said…
Glad to see your last comment Kay and Simon. I've been busy myself, but bearing in mind your health problems, Kay, I was wondering how you are, too.
The Smiths said…
Thanks Karin - just very busy, but hope to post again soon. K&S 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 …
