Companion Beds

Why does it seem to be trendy to sleep in one of these?



Not sure how popular they are, but around here - couples even have matching single duvets.

Most of our private cleans are mainly for retired folks, but surely there must be some older couples who like to snuggle up?

It's kind of left us feeling like this is the way we're all expected to go...

We love our little pine bed & have had it for nearly 20 years.
It's where Hugo was born & all the kids used to pile in early in the morning many moons ago.
We couldn't imagine life with a king size bed, let alone twin mattresses - waving goodnight to each other over the vastness would be very odd.
Anyway, we rely on each other for warmth & enjoy curling up together...

On a different note, I've just finished off sending out invoices & filling our diary with this year's holiday let bookings & now I want to write a piece for our Transition Group's page in the Parish magazine. I've offered to do it & now can't think of anything to write... It's theme is about making our community greener, should it be about us & what we do? Or something more general? 
I don't know...
Perhaps some soup making will help inspire me!

I promised to make it some hours ago!

Sime's doing some finishing touches to our B&B room, so is going to arrive down here starving any minute now...

Whoops!

OMG I want one (a pair that is)! when my husband turns over, it's like an earthquake and don't get me started about his duvet snatching. Yes, this is an invention meant for me :-)

How about an article about your green cleaning business and then a general bit about how people could make use of green cleaning stuff in their homes instead of using stacks of chemicals :)
Kath - I know you don't mean it really!

Dreamer - Thank you, another great idea! May combine that with a post - we don't get around to talking much about our business on the blog, apart from moaning about it when we start getting busy!

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
