Vicar Saves The Day

After another very long day yesterday...

We decided to just collapse in the garden of the big house we'd cleaned with a bottle of wine...

Then we remembered that we didn't have anything to drink it from...

So we swigged it...

While enjoying the view...

Nice...

Today, we had to take the car into the garage.
What we thought was a straightforward job has turned out to be more complicated...

We've had to leave it in the garage overnight & hopefully tomorrow it will be ready!
The problem is - we have 3 properties to clean...
We returned home on the bus & when we got off at our stop - the vicar & husband were there & offered us a lift home (which is a mile away from the bus stop). They have also insisted on lending us their car for tomorrow, so we don't have to let anyone down... 
Such lovely folks & they will soon be leaving for another parish... They will really be missed!

So the show will go on tomorrow & we have 2 new jobs, one is a holiday cottage & the other is a kind of motivational job to support a guy to get on top of his cleaning - being ex care workers means we seem to attract these kind of jobs... Makes life more interesting!


Hope you're all having a good week!

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!

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...
