We've Got The Blues

We're hoping that tomorrow will run smoothly, as it's the BIG day for Sime & the band...
But first we'll have several properties to clean, so the pressure is on!
Today - we have worked for nearly 10 hours, yesterday was pretty much the same & it just seems that the crazy season has arrived early this year!

It's been half term this week & everywhere has been packed...
It seems that every journey has taken forever with all the extra vehicles around. 
Our hamlet has been busy with folks staying at the camp site & hostel, lots of people stopping & looking into the house from morning until night.
Families walking down to the beach early in the morning & teenagers coming up from the beach late at night.
All of them making lots of noise & not giving any thought to the people whose lives they are disrupting.

Even the kitties don't like the intrusion...

Fleaby & Lupschki watch the road from a safe distance!

There has been one consolation these last couple of days...

The weather!




Beautiful, warm sunshine has returned - just a pity we have to work indoors...

We may be tired...

But there's always time for a visit to our local pub...

The Tin Fins - playing the blues

And it's always nice seeing friends! 

And at last - a proper photo of Sheila! xx


Have a lovely weekend!

You too take it steady. Looks as though the weather is getting far better and there's me with my calender up a picture of Mevagissey dreaming of escaping. Am off to Scotland for a holiday in a week or so; would rather it was Cornwall though.

Have a good weekend take care

Wow! no wonder people want to share this with you (promise we won't be noisy when we come to Cornwall LOL).
Have a good gig tonight!

Sounds like you are working very hard at the present and being worn out does tend to make a person less cheerful. There should clearly be a law against grockels, but then you might not get so much work. That is the downside to living in a beautiful spot that people like to spend their holiday in.

Hope the gig went well this evening. Is it the one at Eden Project?

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 …

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. 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…

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?
