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.

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 …

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…
