Weekend Starts Here


We've worked today, but it's been a wonderfully straightforward day...

Our first B&B guests cancelled their stay with us - due to the weather... Luckily, we still got paid, so nevermind & it means I get to go out instead, as tonight Sime's off to the most westerly village in mainland Britain - where The Dolphins Fly have a gig...

We've also got 2 days off - which is nice!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

Hope you have a lovely weekend. Shame your guests felt the need to cancel, but if you get paid anyway, sounds like the best of both worlds. Let's hope the weather cheers up soon.

Thanks Catherine - We get May Day Bank Holiday on the first Monday in May. Not that it makes much difference to us, but we're not working today anyway - which is very nice!

Thanks Annmarie - we go through a company who pay us in full if folks cancel within a month - so we're happy about that!
So what is the most westerly town in England? St Levan?

Hope the band played well. What a treat to get paid and have some lovely time off.

Good for you!

Hi Sft - It's Sennen & they always play well!

We like getting paid for doing nothing!

We love Sennen-have had great winter walks on the beach.

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 …

Top Of The World

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…
