Heading Home

More food today...

Sime & Hugo were very excited at the thought of some British grub for breakfast!
In reality it was pretty awful & after looking out of the hotel window - I wished we were back in France...

Our whole journey home felt very drab & grey, lots of traffic on litter covered roads.

Even Stonehenge looked dismal!

Seeing the huge pigs further down the road - didn't lift us, just left us feeling sad.

We stopped off for a plate of vegetables at a pub in Exeter & still we all seemed subdued...

Now we're home & it's nice to be back, Sime's happy pottering around, Hugo's on his comp talking to his friends - while I'm supposed to be organising our work schedule for the next few days.

But instead, I'm thinking about the next adventure...

Welcome home. I guess it's not unusual to feel a bit low after a holiday, especially as enjoyable as the one you've just had.

I hope the sun shines for you tomorrow!

Stop with the food pictures, you are killing me!! Vacations are great, but it is always nice to be home.

Sounds like you had a lovely time. Our weather isn't too cheery just now, it is true, but I always find having a holiday makes me appreciate home more, however much I enjoyed the holiday.

It is good to be home & although I was dreading having to work today - it's been fine... :)

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…

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 …

Lights Out!
