Day Out In Fal With Sal

Today we visited our eldest in Falmouth, which we haven't done for a long time - as she normally comes to us. Rose was able to come along too, so a Fam 5 day out!

The kids always have lots of catching up to do!

We were on our way to the library & saw this funny sight!

Then it was up to one of our favourite veggie cafes - Cafe Cinnamon for breakfast...

Full English veggie breakfast at it's best!

Next, we visited Falmouth Art Gallery
Where we enjoyed looking at their Masters of Photography Exhibition.

There are also some great permanent pieces...

This old lady & cat are 2 of our favourites!

Back on the street...

Where we discovered that Cancer Research had at last found the answer!

Then it was on to Sal's flat for some Mint & Chilli Tea...

Some of Sal's lovely lemon & poppy seed cup cakes...

Raw chocolate pies

So another lovely day with our kidlets! 

Now we're worn out & ready for bed...


See you soon

I love the cat on the wall, too :) The veggie breakfast is making me hungry, well, then that really isn't hard. Me, always thinking of food! What a nice day, spent with your kids...I can never get all of mine together! Lovely post, have a great evening, Kay! Oh, and Kay's hubby :)

A busy day - no wonder you are so tired. That breakfast looks so good.

Always good to see the kids once they've flown the nest, even if only during term time. Looking forward to seeing more of our daughter, and possibly our son too, over Easter. That is, definitely looking forward to seeing more of him, but not sure how much more we'll see.
Being with all our kids is like a finished jigsaw puzzle - all the pieces are in place & it's very satisfying! We love getting together & food always features in our gatherings!

Hi Elizabeth - nice to meet you, have enjoyed receiving your emails!

Kay :)

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

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy?  We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down
