Happy Holidays

We have just booked another holiday for next year...

The owners of the holiday homes we take care of are not going to be happy!

But it's been a long time since we've had a Summer holiday, so we will be camping in France for a couple of weeks & we're already excited!

We've also heard from our lovely friends who live in Switzerland & we're hoping to visit them for the Winter Solstice... 

Our not going abroad idea didn't last very long - time to update the passports!!!

Which part of Switzerland do your friends live in. I've just come back from another few days in Lausanne, and the scenery is stunning, although I'm not so sure about being there in Winter.

I understand you can see 3 countries if you stand on the right spot in Basel, but I think they have built a busy road on the spot, so it could be dangerous.

The town looks lovely and I'm sure there are some splendid views in the vicinity.

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...
