From Blue Skies...

This was our view on Wednesday...

Portmellon looked like a Mediterranean village...

It was 14C & warm enough for us to eat outside...

Last night the fog arrived & now it feels like Spring was never here...
Our lawn (more like paddock) which our landlord likes look after - glad he's left the daffodils! 

We could grow enough vegetables to feed the hamlet...
 Maybe we can persuade him this year - how long have we been saying this?

Our guest room is coming on & we hope to unveil it to the public next week(ish)...
Our landlord has offered to buy new curtains & anything else we may need - he really is a sweet man! 

Ok time to get on...
 We've got a mountain of work laundry to wash & iron, milk & bread to make, etc, etc.

Hope it's sunny where you are today!

Have a good weekend.
 We will - 2 days of work free bliss...

Hi, Kay,
I just wanted to say that I think the picture in this post is one of the best I have seen of you. You look so healthy and your skin looks wonderful.
Have a great weekend.

Mel - I'm really touched, thank you so much. I truly am feeling wonderful, can't believe what I've been missing!

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 …
