Hobnobbing

We had a really good time last night. 
Not only because we saw the ukulele orchestra...

But we also got to spend time with lovely friends too...

Margaret, looking radiant & Patrick - who's equally radiant!

This one was supposed to be of Sheila... Instead it's my lap!
 Sime's having a few teething problems with the new camera - he can't get used to not using a viewfinder!

The Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain...
They were brilliant & very funny too!

The highlight of the evening for Sime was on arrival we walked past Dave Gilmore from Pink Floyd.
He is on holiday & has attended the festival a few times - apparently... 
Sime was like an excited little boy jumping up & down as Dave walked past us, Sheila & I didn't have a clue who he was & neither were we that impressed once he explained. 
We also saw Ralph McTell, who's famous for the song "Streets Of London", but who cares? 
They're just people like the rest of us!

We were working in Mevagissey earlier, so had breakfast at our favourite cafe & on our walk back to the house - we stopped off to have a look in the little church - which was open for a change!

We do love old buildings & this has parts dating back to the 12th century.

It's been a good day.
Work wasn't too bad, we've eaten really well & managed to watch a film...

Happy bunnies again!

Night, night.

Kay & Sime xx

OK, maybe I can explain a little. When God gets bored or old and retires, it is Dave Gilmour who will take over.
Bet you're impressed now, huh?
:o)

Hi Cathy! Shows how much I know... Sime's just told me that I spelt his name wrong!

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 ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
