Candle Power


Our Earth Hour celebration was lovely, although Bebe was confused & kept changing her mind about eating with us... In the end she ate before we switched the lights off & joined us for a candlelit game of Trivia Pursuit afterwards.
Because of Bebe's sundowning condition, she automatically thinks that it's cold when dark...
So even though it was very warm next to the woodburner - she spent the evening in her coat!

She still managed to answer lots of questions... We were very impressed!

It all looks like great fun! we ate by candlelight, then went outside to view the night skies through my Brother in laws telescope.

I like candle light and to sit by it :) It is great you celebrated Earth Hour.
You all look very cosy. It was my birthday on Earth Hour day so we were out celebrating during the hour but I'm disappointed not to have heard so much about it this year.

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 …
