The Essence Of Tea


It's coming to the end of the tourist season, so once the holidaymakers have left this weekend - life is set to get quieter...

We've had a busy time again & not only with cleaning, but putting together a quote for a potential new client & doing an inventory for the huge house of another.

Amongst it all - we've also made some time to see our girls, who now both live 30 miles away...

So we visited The Essence Of Tea in Falmouth...
A peaceful haven in the middle of town, selling teas from China & Taiwan.
We loved it & will definitely go again! 

We enjoyed some time together drinking...

A large pot of Nantou green tea & smaller pot of  1992 Da Ye Sheng Puerh.
We also had a large dish of veggie sushi.
 (which we forgot to photograph, but was really delicious)!

We also ate later near the harbour & watched the black & white yacht being cleaned & polished by a team of people...

I've also had a blood test, which for the first time in 6 years - hurt like mad!

And bruised...

But I don't mind, as I've heard today that my thyroid is again calming down!

Just got to get Sime's medication sorted...

Otherwise I'll be signing him up for the Halloween Zombie Walk in St Austell on Monday...

Which actually he'd be quite pleased about!

We still have lots of holiday photos yet to share... 
Castles, lakes, mountain passes & Portmeirion...

When we've got more time!

See you soon.

Kay :)

How perfect, a tea house!
My son bought some Tiger tea here in Glastonbury (made with real Tigers LOL). It contains Carob and has a slight chocolatey taste :-D

I'd love to see the Zombie walk, sounds like brilliant fun!

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 …

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. 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…
