A Chilled Weekend

How can the weather look so good, when it's gone so cold? 

Today the temperature has dropped down to 4 degrees, but we don't mind - we're on holiday, we've got plenty of warm clothing & a cosy house!
We are loving the blue skies & sunshine, the quietness of the rural roads & this feeling of totally unwinding...

The day after we left the UK, we discovered our daughter, Rose had car problems - so Sime was "on pins" until she reported that it was all sorted! She only passed her test last June & he's struggled with the idea that we now have 2 daughters on the road (double the worry for him) & he likes to get involved with any car related problems either of them have. I get concerned, but know that both the girls are sensible, responsible young women, who will ask for our help if they need it!

So the car saga lasted for a week, Rose has discovered the joys of owning a vehicle & Sime has finally relaxed & has completely immersed himself into Hugo's world of books! 


So this weekend is about keeping warm, relaxing, eating & sleeping...


& planning a snowy mountain adventure for Monday...

Can't wait!!!

Sounds like a good weekend to me. The sky in that picture is the most beautiful shade of blue I have ever seen.

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 …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
