Chums & Chocs

Poor Sal has pneumonia & has been signed off work for another 2 weeks...
She's already been ill for over a week!

She is very weak, but she has Ryan - who is doing a fine job of nursing her back to good health...
And just to help her along - we've taken various supplements over: Vitamin C, Zinc & Propolis- to give her immune system a boost, Acidophilus as she's on antibiotics & Eucalyptus oil to inhale. We also took onions, garlic, thyme, fresh ginger, honey & lemons which are all fantastic in helping the body to recover from respiratory problems.

The little chickpeas will be celebrating their 6th anniversary this year!
And are very happy, which is lovely!

We hadn't realised just how alike Sal & Hugo are!
When she's well, Sal wears contact lens & since Rose got a job in the same supermarket - they get mistaken for each other...

Rose & Asa just live 5 minutes away from Sal & Ryan, so we visited them afterwards... 

But forgot to take the camera, so here's a photo taken last Summer!
They are both happy bunnies too & have been together a few years now...

It's great & we're very proud of them all.

Another very good reason for visiting Falmouth...

Asa's family sent us some home made chocolates.
His Mum & Sister make the most amazing assortment of delicious treats...

And each year they seem to get better...

This year's are outstanding!!!
We think they should seriously think about selling them!

It's cold again tonight at chez Smith...
And poor Sime is suffering with his eye again & has a cold sore - brute force is now in place to make him better!

Hope you're all having a good weekend.

We're blushing. So glad you enjoyed them. I do wonder about always sending you chocolates for Christmas but very pleased to hear that you're still enjoying them. Sets us a high benchmark to aim for next year.

My husband loves coffee chocs- they're hard to get.
If Lesley and Ellen start making them, we'll be regular customers!

I hope Sal gets better soon.

Lesley - They are wonderful & I could happily scoff the lot, but we're just having a couple a day, they go further then!

Kath - I love coffee chocs too & the coffee cup one is this year's favourite for me!

Karin - Thank you, I'm sure she will & we feel better now we've seen her!

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…

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

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

What do you have planned?
