Temporary Residents

There must now be around a thousand people staying in our little hamlet...

SX0039 : Looking along the SWC towards Boswinger by Row17

When there are usually about thirty of us, but now & for the next 6 weeks we have to put up with the disruption - which comes from being sandwiched between a youth hostel & a camp site.

We don't blame folks wanting to have a piece of this beautiful place...


Our beach is one of the loveliest in Cornwall...


Enjoy your holiday people... Roll on September!

In the meantime, here is a sneaky peek at our living room...

The only before pic we took...

After - slightly less cluttered too!

Sime's got the pictures back up...

Just got to sort out the floor... 
We've discovered hard board under the carpet - we think there's a slate floor underneath.
Sometime soon, when the old furniture is all out - we'll have a think about what to do...


Bye for now...

Thanks Kath - yes the dangly things are lights. Rattan Christmas lights... We liked them so much that we kept them up!

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!

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 …
