Doing Nothing Is Doing Something

We are starting to get a full diary with holiday bookings...
But couldn't resist taking some time out yesterday (& today), so instead of preparing some flats ready for the Easter hols  - we dropped Hugo off at the station for the home ed group & decided to visit Porthpean beach.

It's not really a favourite, but we hadn't visited for a few years.

And thought it would be a nice place to have our lunch...



Starting tomorrow - we have got our work cut out to prepare 12 properties ready for a week on Saturday.
We also have 3 private full house cleans next week, the car's MOT is due, Sime's spending a day in the recording studio with The Dolphins & It's my birthday on Monday...
How will we fit it all in?
I think we'll need a miracle... Hahaha!

Today, we've had an electrician in & we've been waiting for the woodburner to arrive, so we took the day off again...
Talk about cutting it fine, but Sime believes we'll take it all in our stride - which of course we will!

The weather's miserable, so I've just been incredibly lazy & had a look at a library book I picked up yesterday about the art of kindness & we've enjoyed digging out some of our Buddhist books & reading their inspiring quotes...

We haven't been able to iron any work laundry (which is nice), as the electric has been off for quite a while... And Sime's continuing his story for my birthday... I think he's actually writing a full book!

I'm sure we'll be raring to go by tomorrow...

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...
