Nice People

Today was one of those rare occasions...
When one meets a stranger & instantly hits it off...
Well for us - 2 strangers, who are staying in an apartment we look after.

What lovely people.

One minute we are just asking if they are having a good week & the next thing we know...
We'd been sitting, chatting & laughing non-stop for a couple of hours, drinking tea, eating biscuits & cake!

A great way to break up our day & we finished off our work feeling rejuvenated.
I have a feeling that we will see these folks again & hopefully, we've persuaded them to come back - maybe even to live in Cornwall!

Sometimes a chance meeting like that can make a difference to peoples' lives...
It was good fun for us & we've ended the day on a high!

All the guests this week are lovely & it's an absolute pleasure doing this job when we feel appreciated!


Tired, but happy!

That is so wonderful. It certainly makes up for some of the jerks you have to deal with.

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...
