Food, Glorious Food

After last night's massive meal - we decided to have a late breakfast & being us, we chose something a little untraditional...

Nothing like spicy spaghetti...

Or Pesto penne to kick start the day!

Followed by my final French coffee.

It was a short drive to Dunkerque & after an accidental tour of the city centre - we boarded the ferry for our 2 hour sail back to the UK...

Where we had a few games of Uno.

The sun shone & the sea was calm.

And there was more pasta for us to sample...

Hugo was ready for his...

But Sime was slowing down.

And well yeh...

Spending the night near Dover & then tomorrow we're homeward bound!

Our month away has flown & although we're looking forward to seeing everyone, I still feel sad to leave France...
 I'm also peed off that I've left my latest book, with only 3 pages left to read & our shampoo bar (complete with tin) at the hotel in Bourges! Had to use hotel shampoo this morning which has caused my hair to be full of static & I keep getting shocks off things!

Anyway, back to work on Thursday - yippee!!!

Kay :)

I probably would appreciate the pictures of the delicious food more if I wasn't recovering from the flu. I like the new hairdo!!

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…
