What A Difference A Day Makes

We seem to have developed a rather nice addiction to walking the coast...

Yesterday turned into a 3 hour trek...

With lots of mud...

Looking back at our hamlet on the right.

First there was one...

Then there were many...

We were heading to the next cove along from ours...

And although it was a beautiful Saturday morning...

There was no one else around...

First glimpse of Vault Beach...

Just cows...

And sheep for company...

Lamledra House & Woodland is ahead...

We always take a bag with us to pick up rubbish, so we must be beach heroes too!

Vault is at the bottom of quite a steep path...

But is well worth the effort...

On arrival there was one woman on her way off the beach.
Can you spot her red hat?

We spent an hour there & had the whole beach to ourselves...

And it was really quite warm sitting in the sun...

A lovely clean beach - the sign must be working!

It felt like we were on a desert island...

Midday sun...

Such a lovely day.
Unlike today, which is wet & cold - time to get the fire in & watch a film...

Happy not so Sun-Day!

Wow what a stunner of a walk. My lab Harry would have been in seventh heaven down on that beech. I see you have many gorse bushes along the way, have you ever tried gorse wine I its quite good.
Thanks Captain Shagrat! We've made tea with the petals, but never made wine - although we do have a recipe & the equipment... That sounds like a good idea!

I can see why that beach looks so beautiful and clean with good people like you walking around on it helping to pick up garbage! What a wonderful day you had.

Thank you Kath, Mel & Catherine!

The weather's so miserable now - it's hard to believe that it was so nice on Saturday...

You know, I can't remember what the weather was like here on Saturday. It was all a bit of a blur, but we did think the countryside was nice as we drove to Mum and Dad's so I guess it was nice. I made soup and bread in the morning to feed my brother-in-law (and the rest of us) for lunch as he came down to visit his mum. Then hubby and I drove down to help my mum with her shopping because she's having trouble walking again.

Nettles

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

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

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
