Coffee & Colds


It's not very often that we get colds, but about 3 weeks ago - Sime had one out of the blue & no-one else in the family got it...
 As usual, he suffered terribly for a couple of days & made sure we all knew about it!
He's such a big baby when he's ill & I do try to be sympathetic, but I did end up telling him to pull himself together!

Anyway, I'm feeling rather guilty now, as Hugo started with it at the weekend & he never causes a fuss, but he really was ill for a couple of days & guess what...
I started with it on Monday & have just had 2 lousy days of feeling crap!
And you know what else? Sime has cared for us brilliantly (which he always does) & he never complains... He's done all the cooking for the last few days & really pampered us.
So not only do I feel ill, but I feel such a horrible git too. 
Next time Sime is ill, I promise to be more thoughtful & caring, I won't utter the words "typical man" or "man flu" again...

Luckily, we had a day off work today, as it was Hugo's home ed group & Rose was today's volunteer, along with our friend, Simon. 
Not wanting to waste our day, we decided to head to Falmouth - where Sime was hoping to get some work done on one of his bass guitars... 
While there, we visited our favourite veggie cafe - Cafe Cinnamon, where I was treated to 2 black Americanos & some lovely pastries.

I wasn't feeling well at this point, but soon perked up with a couple of coffees inside me!

The pastries were good too!

It's a lovely place & it was nice & warm again today!

Later on, we bought a Fal Falafel, which was so delicious - that we forgot to take photos...

I am trying to be cheerful! 

Need to be better for tomorrow, as we've got 2 busy cleans...

[Hugs] Kay hope you and Hugo are all feeling a lot better soon. The pastries look delicious no wonder you perked up. I would have too. Hope you are cold free soon

Take care

There's nothing as miserable as a cold. I hope you throw it off soon.

That's the trouble with (some) men, they make such a fuss when they are only a little bit ill that it's hard to tell when they are really ill. ;-) I blame it on their mothers.

I hope you are well enough for the two big cleans tomorrow. It sounds a lot even if you are feeling well.

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
