The Four Fs

We arrived home late last night & it's been a successful trip, although there's no news on my Uncle - as he's still in the coroner's hands...

We enjoyed more FOOD
A plate of vegetables & a yorkshire pudding for £4.25 at The Trentham Hotel.
We visit there every time we go up...

Flowers for FRIENDS, whose Son died on New Years Day.
We haven't seen them for over 10 years & we used to care for Nick, when we both worked for Social Services. He was 31 years old & had a condition called Lowe Syndrome. His funeral took place while we were in France, so we're glad we got a chance to spend some time with his parents - who are lovely folks!

Two days after this building caught FIRE & they're still putting out the flames!

We went to have a look at this cook shop yesterday (on the right) & spent well over an hour chatting & eating in the tea room above...

It was real treat!

Sime couldn't resist these Staffordshire Oatcakes filled with cheese & mushrooms.
Finished off with a pot of Raspberry Leaf Tea (no he's not pregnant - just odd)!
Yes, the veganism seems to have gone out the window...

And I opted for scrambled egg, tomatoes & red onion on toast.
They were both delicious & no doubt we'll visit again.

Happy FAMILY
 Bebe is doing really well & she didn't dance or sing at her appointment... 
But when asked in the bank if the assistant could help with anything else - she asked for a glass of white wine & a young man to drink it with!!!

I have been experiencing The Four F's around here. Unfortunately, they aren't as nice as yours.

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!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
