No Impact Week

We have been asked to take part in the The No Impact Experiment again.
It's good to remind ourselves of how lightly we wish to live & to feel encouraged to do so.

Work tends to make us lazy & we find ourselves talking about living simpler as a future event...
It's crazy, because both of us are passionate about living with no or very little impact.
We continue to dream of life being simple - living off-grid, no mains electricity or running water.
Having land to grow our own food & generate our own power.
We want to live as far away from other people as possible, to be somewhere very remote.
A place away from disrespectful tourists & silly neighbours...

To be in control of our lives, support ourselves & be truly happy, fit & healthy would be wonderful!

Our journey to simplicity begins on Sunday September 18th. 
It would be great if you would come along too!

I love your dream. It is my dream too, even though my family thinks it would be a nightmare. Oh well, maybe in my next life.
Good luck and have fun.

I got one of those invites, too. I suppose it is a good idea to be reminded 6 (or 7) months on, but I don't think I'll be joining in this time. It made me feel I had to take things too much to extremes. I shall read your blog with interest, though, and may see areas I need to brush up on. It will be a tricky enough week as we shall be having some of the downstairs floors sanded and polished etc.

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…

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 …

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
