Festival Season Begins

Another busy day yesterday...
We had three holiday properties to prepare for guests & then had to drive over 40 miles to a festival in the West of Cornwall - where Sime's band were performing.
We have friends who live near there, so they joined us too - which made for an enjoyable evening!

The guy behind the festival is known as Bones & this was his way of showing folks the way!

Our friends' Daughters - Biby who had a great time playing with all the little people...

And Madi, who was bored & tired...

Along with Hugo!
Only a few years ago, the 2 of them would have been running around & exploring...

There were lots of young families there & it brought home to us how removed we are from all that now, our kids have moved on & we do things differently. For instance, lots of families were camping overnight in small tents on a slope, we would have done that too - years ago, but now we prefer to be comfortable & the three of us were happy to be coming home! The last time we camped was in France in 2009 & we found it to be so noisy, with lots of children crying through the night or up early in the morning - that we vowed not to do it again, unless it was on a small, quiet site...

It was still a lovely place to be & the atmosphere was great. There were other musicians playing & some good veggie grub. The only problem was that I managed to bugger up the camera, so half through it started misbehaving & my phone camera is rubbish from dusk - so we were disappointed to find very few good photos...

Though I did get a couple of the band early on...

Thank goodness!

The ever affectionate Husband!

Hope you've had a good weekend.

Nice to see you back you have been missed. Sounds as though you had a great time last night. But at least everything is balanced with you working hard and playing hard. Looks as though you had a great time.
Take care

Sounds like fun. Things change when the kids get older. They don't have as much doing things that they liked when they were younger. Stinkers.

Pattypan - We're still not on properly, our signal comes & goes... We should have received our MAC code today, but of course we haven't!

Mel - The funny thing was, Hugo really wanted to come with us...

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?
