Catch Up

It's been quite a surprise to be having hot weather in July & August...
Something we haven't experienced since 1976!

Great if you're on holiday - not so good if you're spending most of your time indoors cleaning other people's houses...

And why do older people keep their windows closed (& locked) during hot weather?

The last 6 days has been like working in a sauna - One consolation is we get to work with these views...


On route to a house we spent 3 days cleaning...




It's on a tiny peninsula...

And it feels more like an island...

Sime cleaning the conservatory...

And the view from the shower room...


A meal at Heligan, in between jobs...

The Air Ambulance landing in the field next to another cottage we clean...


Our first community wind turbine going up...

Morris Dancers outside our local pub...

With the 'oss...

They finished off with a sing-a-long inside the pub...

Curry in Truro last night...

Sunset over Boscawen Park in Truro...

The sky was beautiful...

Archie Brown's feast for 2 in Truro...

Our new dresser - which we bought last week...
One day, we'll finish that room off!


It's been a busy few days & this is only the half of it...

Glad you okay you certainly have been out and about. Been too hot here,major thunder lightning and torrential rain early afternoon. And its been at it again this evening. Its terribly humid as well and the rain only seems to have made it hotter. I have been out this evening and just got dropped off by friends when my friend over the road came tootling along. She had lost her kitten, so there's me like a plonker looking for the inappropriately named "Tiddles" in the dark in her garden. He came to me so peace is restored until he does it again. I am off up for an early night as I have to walk into work again tomorrow (hope its not raining). Take care and enjoy your few days off. I like the dresser.

You both have been busy, but I agree, the views are worth it. I really like the dresser you bought.

It seems we all love the dresser! I am also very impressed with the huge plates of delicious food. Cleaning houses obviously does wonders for your appetites.

Thank you Pattypan, Mel & Gai - we haven't managed to finish off our living room yet... Hopefully, one day we'll have time & energy to finish it off!

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?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
