You, Me & Debris

Yesterday we spent another long day cleaning other peoples' homes...
We didn't get in until after 7pm!
With all the hassle this (or was it last?) week, I'm really wishing for an easier life.
What would be really nice right now is a few days off to potter around the house, read one of the ever growing pile of books, do things in the garden, get on top of our business accounts, cook, sit & chat... 
Though I should be careful, as the last time I complained about wanting to spend more time at home - I fell & sprained my ankle!
So I'll just be content that we have money coming in, we have good health & we are happy!


This Saturday, The Dolphins Fly are performing at The Eden Cafe - which led to the band being invited to an interview on BBC Radio Cornwall
Unfortunately, Sime & Bill couldn't make it, so Dave & Mart did a couple of acoustic tracks.
We've just got a few days left to try & get as many folks as possible to come along on the night...

We've had a day off today, Hugo has started a new circus course in Falmouth, so we took the opportunity to see...

Sal & Ryan

Then we had a drive towards the Helford Passage...


And visited a village called Constantine, where we found 2 interesting shops:

Lyrebird is a lovely shop selling bits & pieces for homemade crafts.
They also run workshops, which may interest Sal & Rose. They have birthdays coming up soon...

The Dad of the girl running Lyrebird, also has a shop in the village called: Rob's Guitars.
Sime loved it... Of course!


Night, night, early night for us tonight!

Sometimes it's hard to imagine living in such a beautiful place. Your photos are wonderful.
Don't sprain your ankle in hopes of getting some time off - not good.

What a lovely area you live.
We're just trying to find a dog friendly break in Cornwall, any suggestions?

Thanks Mel & I'll try not to...

Kath, Here's 2 dog-friendly places we look after:

This one is attached to the owner's house in the countryside, very pretty - though the kitchen is a bit basic & it's with an agency...

This is an apartment in Portmellon Bay. The owner's lovely & if you tell her you've heard about it through us - she would probably do a deal!
We look after a lot of places - just depends how much you want to spend & how many bedrooms you need... Email us if neither of these are suitable & we can probably find somewhere else.

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?

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…
