Goodbye Top Box Tourists

It is finally becoming quieter in this part of Cornwall.
The families have headed home to prepare for getting back to school...
The crowds have gone & it is wonderful!

We've nearly got the lane back to ourselves.

We have had 3 good lie-ins, spent several hours in Waterstones & visited Sal & Ryan in Falmouth - which has been lovely.

We've eaten out at Archie Brown's in Truro.

And just spent some nice time together.

Back to work tomorrow.
It's going to be fine - easy & straightforward...

My thyroid is continuing to misbehave & to be honest - I feel pretty awful... 
But I'm happy & I know that as soon as we go away & properly unwind, I'm going to feel so much better.
I just need lots of rest & to eat well...
I've been so tired that I've not even cooked or baked for ages & poor Sime is having to do so much more...
 He's such a fantastic, hard-working chap & he never complains, but he is carrying me & I feel guilty...

I am looking forward to a relaxed Winter & an easier work load next year.
Two more jobs are going to go & we will be telling them soon...


Bye for now.

Hi Kay! Hope my comment goes through as I've had too many problems with Blogger in the past couple months. Didn't know you had thyroid issues...I had suspected that I did but tests came back neg. What are your symptoms, if you don't mind my asking? And don't you just love it when the tourists leave? I live in a major tourist spot, but mine is year 'round...gets old, I know. You're probably a mindful tourist, like me, knowing how it feels, haha! Stay well and take care of yourself ;)

Good to hear that things are slowing down and the tourists are going home. I hope you start to feel better soon.

sorry you're still feeling low Kay, let your lovely man spoil you, one day it will be his turn and you can return his care.
Doctor Kath prescribes lots of cuddles, wonderful books and peace and quiet xx

Thanks Elizabeth - I've had a thyroid problem for years... The main symptoms are: palpitations, sweating, breathlessness, muscle weakness, anxiety & a swollen thyroid - for me anyway. It speeds up the metabolism, which means constant hunger & weight loss. It's as awful as it sounds, but I'm used to it & remaining calm & happy helps me focus on getting better!

Thank you too Catherine, Mel & Kath.

I'm beginning to feel my system calming... Thank goodness.

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?

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...
