Not Quite There Yet

We still have internet problems, which our ISP & the local whizz kid can't understand! Apparently, it's like our account has been blocked, but it hasn't & it's taking a while to work out...

So, at the moment we are on & making the most of it - though we can't do everything we want to & strangely, we can't look at any other blogs apart from the snippets we get on the dash board, nor can we look at any websites... It's very frustrating!!!

On the positive side, we are doing things that have needed to be done for a while... Have even started crocheting (which I've not done since my teens), Sime's still busy musically & has his first gig with his new band on Saturday, we've been out walking more, have collected nettles for juicing & have been doing lots of reading - so it's not all doom & gloom!

We're just even more cut off from the world & it's not actually that bad!


See you soon (hopefully)!!!

Sorry about the Internet problems; but at least its given you chance to have a go at the crotchet. What are you having a go at and when back to normal are you going to post piccies. I am still knitting my blanket! Just take care.

Top Of The World

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?
