Blog Award


What a surprise!

Pattypan from Tarragon & Thyme has very kindly passed on the award & this is what she had to say:
I love catching up with these two honest hardworking couple and their efforts to simplify their lives without leaving an imprint on this world of ours. I love the fact that they are not scared to be themselves or that they conform to what other people think they should be doing.  They are delightfully "alternative" and passionate about everything they are involved with.  They have home educated their children as well as running their own business and have been good role models in daring to be different and meeting their own ethical requirements rather than follow like sheep along a well trodden path.  There are always other choices and I like their honesty, sincerity  and most definitely their love for each other and their humour.
Thank you Pattypan!!! xx 

Liebster is a German word meaning dear & the award is a way to show support to bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers.

Elizabeth lives in a beautiful part of Southern California & shares wonderful photos & thoughts about her life.

Karin writes about her steps towards sustainable living, current affairs, spirituality & peace. She lives in South East England. 

Gai doesn't post very often, but when she does - she writes about life in Bristol, family, religion & sustainable living.

Mel lives in Canada with her family, she grows & preserves her own food, has a fantastic sense of humour & takes blog friends on a journey through the highs & lows of life. She occasionally talks about some sort of sport too...

Pattypan is always on the go - busying about, making, cooking, baking, preserving & ironing! An inspiration with her frugal living, lovely recipes & helpful advice.

Nic thinks her life's not very interesting, but she's getting married next year & is watching what she eats. She shares lovely foodie photos & hopefully she'll post more in the future!

Sooz is a vegan, knitting gardener. She is very keen to live as ethically & sustainably as possible & has a very happy & colourful blog!

Nic & family have had an amazing life-changing adventure this year. They have WWOOFed around the UK & are soon going to be starting a new life - though they haven't revealed exactly what they will be doing yet...


Thank you all for keeping us entertained, enthralled & educated. 
If any of you would like to have the Liebster Badge - please feel free to copy it & play the game properly!!! :)

We do have lots of blogs on our roll, but we probably haven't looked at most of them since first following them, we're hopeless. 
Perhaps this Winter we'll catch up...




The Rebels xx

To my favorite rebels - thank you for mentioning my blog. Some sort of sport - good thing I like you so much otherwise I would be upset.
Thank you Kath & Pattypan - you both make us feel very special!

Karin - Danke! Afraid had to google that bit of German...

Mel - It's a pleasure & we were only teasing...

Thanks for the recommendation. You're right. I haven't been posting very often. Not from lack of having anything to say, but from not being sufficiently organised to get it online. Will try to do better in the New Year. Now where have I heard that before?
Thanks very much!! What lovely words about my little 'ole blog! :) xxx

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate... But we know... And this is one thing which makes living here difficult. How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?     It just doesn't make sense. Both the posters are from the  Cornwall Vegans  website. If you are in Cornwall or will be on Saturday 22nd April - do support this event! Perhaps you have been considering veganism - this  Vegan Starter Kit  will help you to get started and if you have any questions, need help or ideas for recipes - just ask, we are always happy to talk to folks who want to change their diet for the better. And in case you haven't seen this on iplayer - Here is  Simon Amstell's Carnage . Please, please think seriousl

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Spring Forward

We are gradually coming out of our winter hibernation and two weeks of pet sitting on The Roseland in Cornwall has been a wonderful way to slowly "wake up" and enjoy being with one of our favourite furry chums. We are all enjoying being outside more and after 5 years of caring for our little pal - we have finally made progress with her ability to listen, focus and follow commands! She has always been a delight to be with, but her excitable behaviour tends to get out of control...perhaps she is calming down as she gets older or maybe we are more relaxed around her. We have certainly felt our bond with her has strengthened over the last two weeks and in turn she is eager to please. She can now have time off her lead and is thoroughly enjoying beach play time, with excellent recall.  We had almost given up on the idea that Mabel could enjoy such freedom, so it is a joy to us all! We do hope that she will continue with her Mum, but are confident that we will slip back into our ne
