Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...

We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small.
We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie.
These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.

We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients.
Delicious!


We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft). 
It's great making all sorts of milks again... 
And the pulp goes into our porridge!

This one is brown rice and almond.

Porridge!!!
Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water.
Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥


An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes...
Peppers stuffed with Puy lentils, roasted veggies, steamed broccoli (with a squeeze of lemon). Topped with miso and onion gravy.


Bread dough ready for the oven...

And the crusty loaf fresh out of the oven. :-)


Have a lovely weekend!

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 …
