Are You Getting Fresh?

      
 It's a lovely mild day & the sun has come out to play.

We have been very organised, managed to prepare the holiday apartment ready for the next guests... 

And left them a delicious Cornish Cream Tea for when they arrive!

We do like getting up early sometimes, it makes us feel like we're getting things done & it's so nice to finish work at lunch time.

Not only have we worked but walked too...

Down towards Mevagissey while the sun was shining!

And once again...

The sea is a beautiful colour!

A boat coming into the harbour.

Looks like a holiday resort!

We came on holiday to Mevagissey in 1999...
Never thought for one minute that we'd end up living here...

Funny how things happen!

Spring is obviously in the air, as Sime's very motivated today. 
We have 2 small fridges, one of which is really old & not working well at all. 
Rose & Asa have being using it, but as of today - they will have ours...

And we will just use a cool box...
Another small reduction in our electricity usage!

Time to make dinner...

Food is the one thing we never compromise on. 
It's so important to eat well & we've been quite shocked at some frugal blogs lately, where folks are happy to eat absolute rubbish - just because it's cheap! 
What these people don't realise is that the poor quality food - with huge amounts of additives & preservatives is going to be affecting their health. 
It's always wise to learn as much as you can about the foods you eat, for instance - cheap, tinned vegetables are no where near as nutritious as fresh. No matter what it says on the label... You cannot beat fresh vegetables, organic if possible. 
There are so many ways that we can live frugally, but food is what gives us life!
What's the point in saving money on food, so you can fill your car with fuel? 
We feel really sad to have come across so many people who eat junk & don't know how to cook.
Cooking, creating & eating simple, but quality foods is such a wonderful experience & there are so many cookbooks out there for people to learn from - it's easy!

Anyway, we're having something with green split peas, walnuts & mushrooms.
Perhaps a cottage pie - we'll see what happens...

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.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
