Sun, Sea & Dolphin Music


We're getting into the swing of things again - working hard & getting organised. 
It's such a great feeling & I love it when it all goes like clockwork!
Today, we were up & out early, 4 properties to prepare for this weekend's arrivals...
 Last night's business meeting* paid off & so everything was completed with time to spare! 
We even had time to visit our favourite cafe in Mevagissey for a cuppa, which has just re-opened after the floods in November & enjoyed soaking up the sun for a short while in the grounds of one house - so it's been a good day!

*In other words - sitting at our dining table, drinking herbal tea, eating home-made chocolate brownies, me making suggestions for our day ahead & taking notes, while Sime just agrees to everything & doodles.


The weather is wonderful, blue skies & so warm, though I suppose it's scary & not normal for this time of year - but still very welcome. We seem to have bypassed spring & gone straight into Summer, which probably means it will all be over by June & then will get cold & wet again...

We're working again in the morning, then tomorrow night - Sime has his first gig with The Dolphins Fly. He's learnt 22 original songs in 5 rehearsals & played along with their CDs whenever he's had a chance, so he's ready (though he doesn't think so). 


Hugo & I are going along tomorrow too & I'm really looking forward to it, as for the first time in nearly 25 years - I actually like the music he'll be playing! 
The gig is near to where we used to live in North Cornwall, so we're going early, taking a picnic & will be checking out our old haunts - hopefully, we'll have nice weather again...


Hope you all have a good weekend!

Hello Kay, I thought I'd come over and meet you all properly. How wonderful to live on the Cornish coast. We spent a lot of time down there over the years, St Ives, Launceston, Mawgan Porth, Tintagel and Liskeard, so we know what a varied and beautiful place it is. Enjoy the gig, it sounds fab!

Hope you had a brilliant night - the music sounds really good. Really hot and sunny here today. Catch you soon

Hi Kath - We love Cornwall too, living on the coast for us is great out of season. Our beach gets too busy in the Summer, but is just perfect in the Winter...

Pattypan, the weather's been great here - in fact yesterday we got a bit burnt in the garden!

The gig was great, but our internet won't let us upload photos at the moment, but will post them soon...

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 rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

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 was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
