A Day In The Life

Today, we decided to start the day with a juice.
We've had our juicer for about 3 years & it does make the most incredible juices...

Today's was Apple, Carrot & Beetroot - all organic.

We added a teaspoon of ground Rose Hips...

And it was delicious!

We went along to a cleaning demo after breakfast - work does tend to get in the way at times, but we were very impressed: Enjo are an Austrian company, who have created cleaning cloths, etc that can be used with just water. We use Bio D Products or have done so up until now... After seeing the various cloths & gloves do the jobs effortlessly, we decided to make a few purchases & if they don't work for us - we'll get our money back, so watch this space!

Then it was off to a local Gurkha restaurant for a meal with the kidlets...

We haven't seen Sal for over 5 weeks, so it was lovely to catch up!

As usual, we were non-stop chatting & somehow I got away with taking a photo of Hugo without him complaining!

Rose managed a smile, even though her uni work is overwhelming her at the moment! 

The food was great & we were the only customers, so were treated like VIPs. 
The waiter was really impressed that the whole family was veggie!

Having had such a busy day, we didn't get out for our walk until about 7pm. The sky was clear & the moon shone... 

A beautiful end to a perfect day!

I've never come across a Gurkha restaurant before. What distinguishes it from a regular Indian restaurant?

Just Gai - Gurkha restaurants are quite common in Cornwall, they specialise in Nepalese cuisine. Here's the website to the one in St Austell: www.nepalesegurkha.co.uk

Mel - I love the look of juiced beetroot & really dark green juices too.

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…
