Refined Confinement

We haven't worked for a week...

Since Sime's fall - we've been spending lots of time in front of the fire...

And cuddling the kitties...

It's been lovely to spend time with our furry friends...
 Instead of dashing out whenever we've got some spare time.

I was struggling with being serious & not getting close to Sime without him backing off & shouting "No"...
But now, we've got into the swing of a very formal existence - not unlike a middle-aged couple in a Jane Austen novel!
 So it's just a pat on the hand or head, instead of a hug. A bit of light conversation at meal times (without laughs of course) & a peck on the cheek on waking & going to sleep...
I am no longer allowed to tell funny stories or sing silly songs & jumping out is strictly forbidden.
So before we meet for tea & crumpets in the parlour, I'd just like to say...
If my luck's in tonight I might be able to snuggle up to Mr Smith's left arm!


Hopefully, there's light at the end of the tunnel & a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow!

Anyway, little finger out, swish, swish & away we go...

Chin, chin.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs Smith

Dear Mrs Smith...... Remember anything good is worth waiting for!! But at least you have had a lovely log fire to curl up in front of - deeply jealous

Poor Sime - not even able to laugh without going ouch - must be murder! but it must be equally frustrating for you and your inveterate sense of humour. Pussy cats are meant to be very good at destressing people and situations. Keep patting the cats. Hope normality is resumed soon

Love to you both

Thank you Kath & Pattypan!

I'm feeling better every day.

I am thinking you will have to give extra love and snuggles to the kitties until Mr. Smith gets his 'grove' back on with his side! Ha!

Dear Mrs. Smith,
I guess you will have to take what you can get. Hopefully, your partner in crime feels better soon.
I am still not laughing. Can you tell?

I was sorry to read about Sime's injuries. It sounds like he's getting plenty of tlc, so hope he'll soon be on the mend. Hope you can enjoy fine weather this weekend, if cautiously.

I've not been visiting the world of blogs recently, not enough time, then I just joined the world of tweets, mind you they are very short.

Thank you Catherine & Mel.

Hello again Karin - thank you. Share your Twitter address!

Sime's bruise has gone, the pain is fading & he's managed 2 days of work.

The wonders of herbal medicine!

I'm glad Sime is feeling so much better.

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.  
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 instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

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

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
