Fruit & Nut Cases

We've had lots of messages from folks saying what nutters we are for driving through the waves the other day, though I don't know why I'm included - I didn't want to do it!
Saying that - we are used to driving through it, though neither of us have ever seen the sea that high before! 

Some years ago, we had a French student staying with us, Sime thought he would like to experience high tide down there, so he took him & Hugo .
They decided to take a chance, got out of the car, went up to the water's edge & then realised that a massive wave was about to hit them, they ran & jumped behind the wall of the end house. 
Needless to say - the wave shot over the wall & the three of them ended up drenched!
We've also heard stories of cars being swept away in that very cove - which is why the bollards are there...

Anyway, Sime wouldn't have taken a chance if he thought we were in danger... 

We really have to get to bed now. 
We have an early start tomorrow... Followed by a late night! 
We have 3 properties to prepare & then all the family are off to Sime's gig in Falmouth, so we'll get to see Sal & Ryan - which will be lovely!


Night, night.

You clearly don't like life to be dull, but that doesn't mean that you are mad necessarily. I hope the gig goes well tonight.

I like dodging waves. One of the funniest moments though was with my father. On holiday in Wales at Talybont near Barmouth. I had been in the sea for quite some time and my Dad came out to meet me - he opened his mouth to speak to me and got sloshed in the mouth full on by a wave turning. He promptly lost his false teeth which were washed away. One grumpy father and by was he grumpy! 9 hours later, on beach patrol looking for his teeth. we found them washed up. How lucky was that. To add insult to injury my brother had made friends with a lad on the site we were on; in a much later conversation it came out that his Dad made false teeth for a living. So one way or the other Dad would have been okay. That's what happens when you dodge waves.

Hope you are both okay and have a lovely evening

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?
