Back On Track

What a difference a few days make...
Wow, the extra Iron & Vitamin C are obviously just what I needed!
For the first time in ages - I cooked dinner last night, made porridge this morning & have pottered about after work today. Without realising, Sime's been gradually propping me up, but now... I'm back & it feels great!!!


Life is wonderful again.

We are busy, which is ok now I'm not exhausted, but it does make us think more about what we really want to be doing... 
At the moment, it is to own a small cafe - with room for second-hand books & instruments. This dream has been around for many years, but we both think it's going to come to us soon. 
It just feels like something is about to happen! 

We also want to be simplifying our life even more. At some point in the near future, Rose & Asa will be leaving us & then it will be just the three of us - do we stay in this large house, or do we move to a smaller place? 
We want to have the opportunity to grow our own food, to have a proper veg plot outside our back door, to live somewhere incredibly remote, without mains water & electricity. We want to generate our own power, drink fresh spring water & be surrounded by woodland. 
One day soon, we know we will have all this. 

I have always believed that wishing for things hard enough makes them happen & nine times out of ten - it works!

For now, we will enjoy every moment of every day, take good care of ourselves, continue to live as simply as possible, spend days in beautiful places, make time for each other & enjoy just being...


Have a wonderful weekend!

Love Kay & Sime xx

Top Of The World

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.  
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 instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

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?

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 …
