Eden Project Time of Gifts


Last week we went to the Eden Project's Time Of Gifts Winter Festival.

We enjoyed a lovely evening...

It rained, but turned out to be warm for this time of year...

Inside the Mediterranean Biome... 

Hot Air Balloon in the Humid Biome...

The Malaysian House in the Humid Biome...

The campfire outside...

And Sime with his lantern...
(Which he nearly burnt the house down with the other day)!

Our video of the music... We loved this song!

Enjoy!

Hi Kath, Eden's great & as locals we get to buy an annual pass for £5, so we get in free for the rest of the year - which is nice!

Hi Catherine,

I can't believe he lit an outdoor lantern made of paper & wood & left it in the dining room... A few minutes later I heard a crackling noise & put my head around the door - the lantern had gone up in flames & one of the ceiling beams caught fire too!

He's just as nutty as a fruit cake!

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...
