Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday.
When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 

We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out...
We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!

I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago... 
Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!

We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on the way home, we visited Shugborough Hall - the home of Patrick Anson, 5th Earl of Lichfield & childhood playground of Sime (his Nan was Patrick's Housekeeper).
We had a fantastic day & when we have some spare time - we'll put the photos on & he can tell you all about it...



Bye for now & have a lovely weekend!

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?
