Rewilding Our Life - Days 17 and 18


Thursday, we went to The Eden Project for dinner in the Mediterranean Biome, which is as wild is it got that day...
We are struggling to keep up with the activities from the challenge, as they arrive via email daily & usually long after we have left the house - so it's difficult. 
We are still making the effort to be mindfully outside for at least 30 minutes every day, but we're just doing things our way - which suits us & maybe we'll incorporate rock sculptures & conversations with the younger generation on others days - If or when the opportunity arises.
Anyway, back to Eden... We arranged for Bebe to go into respite for a few days, so this enabled us to get out in the evening...

We enjoyed a couple of hours amongst indoor wildness...


Time with Magie & Patrick...

And a vegan feast...


We were the last ones to leave...

As always, a lovely night.


On Friday after work we were exhausted - caring for Bebe, being up at 6am & sometimes not getting into bed until after midnight, with some nights disturbed by Bebe trying to leave the house or knocking us up to see if we're ok is just so tiring. We expected to be out every night making the most of our long weekend of freedom, but no - the last 2 nights we've been in bed for 10pm!!! 

Friday's rewilding was popping into the back garden before retiring, Sime zoomed in on the moon between the clouds.

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 …
