What's In A Week?


We seem to be getting into a routine with Bebe & have seen quite a transformation over the last week...


Amazing what a hair cut & some new clothes can do!

She is settling well & although there are periods when reassurance is needed, she has been able to move away from focusing on things which cause her distress. We have spent many hours talking & helping her to understand why she thinks the way she does. Some of the more mundane topics, Sime has now written about in a laminated letter - which we hand to Bebe when she starts to repeat herself & gradually the answers to these questions are seeping through! 

She is loving her time at daycare, which is a great bonus & she is amazingly sleeping well - if we can persuade her to keep off the coffee at night!


Bebe's had a go on her old typewriter, though found it a struggle to concentrate... 
We'll get it out again at the weekend & keep encouraging her. We've also tried playing Scrabble, but she was unable to unscramble the letters to form any words - we shall persevere!

Listening to her favourite music definitely makes a huge difference to Bebe's mood, she is at her happiest when singing, dancing or with both of us chatting. 


This is what happened after a bowl of soup today...

We're also managing to get her out walking & after not venturing out of her home for 3 years - she is doing fantastically!!!


A breezy Mevagissey Harbour this morning...


As Bebe says several times a day... 
"D'you know something? I think this move is going to work out."

We think so too!

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


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 …

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
