Rural Pollution

Stormy weather has arrived... So it's cold & blustery again. The windows & doors have been rattling since Friday night & we have the wood burner blazing away. Friday afternoon, we were able to skive off work & spent a lovely afternoon with Scarlet & J (who were down here on holiday to celebrate their 30 anniversary). We met in The Lost Gardens Of Heligan restaurant & as always, the time whizzed by & we had spent nearly 4 hours chatting & laughing... We were there until closing time, but it was so nice to catch up & we're hoping they will return to Cornwall soon... :-)
Anyway, this windy weather will no doubt cover Hemmick Beach in rubbish - we are trying to clear as much as possible as often as we can & the recycling guys are always happy to take any bits of plastic we find, which is great.
On Wednesday, we remembered to take the camera, but forgot to take bags or boxes to collect stuff, but we did return on Thursday with bags & no camera! We shall try & get down there again before the weekend is over, but for now - here's Wednesday's snaps taken at low tide, when the beach opens out & reveals lots of tiny coves & caves...

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

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.

Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…
