The Taste Of Things To Come

It's no surprise that Sime & I had to have a proper lie-in this morning...
We've worked really hard over the last few days, especially yesterday - getting jobs done & houses ready for guests.

To top it all - we were invited to an album launch by a local band last night, so we went along. The band, in my opinion were pretty awful... They were competent musicians, but had concentrated on spending money on equipment & image - instead of on their music. The Dolphins will be playing the same venue next month & I know that the night will have much more of a buzz about it, so really looking forward to it!

Our eating habits have gone up the creek again this weekend - we were eating pasta at midnight last night, as we'd skipped a meal & were then hungry when we got home. Today, we ended up having breakfast at 2pm & nothing else until 10pm tonight! Tomorrow, we have a big clean to do, so no doubt - we'll go without breakfast, but have a good lunch instead. At least when we do eat, it tends to be good food. I always find time to make a week's supply of bread & we have an organic veg box delivered every week. So we're fine!

We've had a day off today - which is nice, so we sat & watched a film this afternoon, something we haven't done for a while & it was really good too!
Flame & Citron, based on the true story of 2 Danish resistance guys from WWII.

Early start tomorrow & we're both very tired, so time for bed!


Night, Night.

Good night, guys. Have a good day tomorrow and don't work too hard.

Sounds like you are very busy at this time of year, but I guess it's knowing you don't have a daily grind 6 out of 7 days for the whole year that makes it worth your while.

Make sure you look after yourselves.

Thank you guys - we try our best to eat well & rest, but I am looking forward to life being a bit quieter... We definitely could do with some days at home!

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?
