Hat Saturday

Work has slowed down & it's wonderful!
We've had 2 whole days pottering about at home & it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Tomorrow, we're heading up to Stoke for a few days, where we'll be staying in a warm hotel room.

Unlike here where it's very cold... Shower time, in particular has become quite a challenge, as our bathroom is freezing.  
One consolation though - we have discovered we can hit some really high notes when singing our favourite opera pieces & our pogoing has taken on new heights! 

We're still determined to get through the Winter without our heating & thanks to Rose...

We're doing it in style!
(She left them behind when she moved)

Time for bed & see you all soon.

Aren't you worried about burst pipes? Our heating is on a thermostat which only kicks in when the temperature falls below 18 degrees. I've taken to sitting on the sofa wrapped up in a fleece blanket to keep me cosy.

Gai - it very rarely gets below 4c in our part of Cornwall, but if it does - we might re-consider!

Mel & Sooz - thank you, we have thermal underwear & hot water bottles, so we're fine!

Kath - wait till we get on our home brew over Christmas...

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?
