5 Minutes From Our Door

Is the view we never tire of...
Really enjoying our 10 minutes or more of walking, it's good to just drop everything & escape!

On our return - we made pizzas.
For the dough, we use Shipton's Mill Flour, Dove's Farm Yeast, Cornish Sea Salt, Olive Oil & water - with a sprinkle of oregano & sesame seeds.
The topping Suma Tomato Puree, mixed with Suma Vegan Pesto & more Olive Oil. 
I can post the recipe if anyone is interested.

We then add what whatever veg we fancy - last night was garlic, onions, mushrooms...

And sliced green olives. 
Hugo also had a sprinkle of organic cheddar on his!

Enjoyed lots of discussion last night about the way we treat older people in this country, triggered by Karin's blog at: Green and Generous - check it out & join the conversation.

And before I forget - we saw this in St Austell on Tuesday & it reminded me of Just Gai's Blog

Off to Eden today, last day of locals for £5 entry - got to get our annual pass!!!

Kay :)

You clearly live in a lovely spot what with the views and being handy for the Eden Project. Why would you want to move?

Thanks for the mention.

As it happens I had pizza tonight when I came in from work, but I used a ready made base, topped with lots of lovely veg from my veg box and a bit of cheese not to mention some passata and slices of aubergine in jars the fridge that needed using up.

Nettles

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy?  We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down
