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?

The juice looks delicious. What a beautiful color.
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.

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

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
