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!

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.  
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 instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
