Rewilding Our Life - Day 3

We returned home too late last night to write about our day, but here we are...
Day 3's activity was to sit under/by a tree for 30 minutes, so as we were heading to Hugo's college - we decided to have a little detour to Idless Woods.

Just before the woods we passed a wonderful sight.
An old phone box turned into a book exchange... Such a great idea!

In the woods... 
It was a mild, calm day.

We saw this cottage through the trees - it was lovely watching the smoke.


We had the whole place to ourselves.


The branches always seem to make shelters when they fall. 

Though this one was man-made!

We sat quietly for 30 minutes just listening to the birds.

We don't have many trees around our home, we live high above the sea & it's very exposed.
 Before we moved here, we lived in a woodland... So being amongst trees feels like home!

That looks blissful, and my idea of a perfect way to spend time. Hope you are both well - you certainly look it!

Lovely :)
I walk Jake through the forest every day for an hour and find it very relaxing and balancing.

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 …
