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

Have a great weekend.

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!
Thank you everyone!

Off to work now...

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?

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 rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
