Sime was playing at the Polperro Festival last night & at the last minute I decided to go along, as I haven't visited Polperro for years...

While the guys were setting up - I had a mooch about...

When I got back to the stage - the crowd were waiting eagerly for the band to kick in...

It was a great gig & all the festival goers didn't want them to stop!

I loved these two characters at the back of the stage...

Now off to the Mevagissey Feast Week & another gig for the band.

On our way home last night...

Bye for now.

Kay & Sime

What a beautiful place. Never been but it's going on the list. NOW!

The gig looks great fun. Always good to leave the audience wanting more!

We've walked to Polperro from Looe on a couple of occasions. It's a lovely route with the reward of a delightful fishing village at the end.

Those photos have made me just a little bit excited about our very soon trip to Cornwall! Glad the gig went well.
Hi Sft, Polperro is lovely & definitely worth a visit!

Hi Kath, It's a holiday cottage & is a snip at £175 per night!

Hi Gai, We haven't done that walk, but it is quite a walk from the car park at the top... They used to have a horse & carriage to take folks down into the village, but now we think they use little electric buses to transport people up & down.

Hi Scarlet, There's so much to see & do - but the weather is still being weird... Just after I got to the stage on Saturday, it absolutely poured down for the rest of the night. Yesterday was beautiful again & today is cold & miserable!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Hi Kay and Sime

Polperro long time since I have been there but I have fond memories of when the step children were younger. Did you go in search of the Pisky? Glad you had a good couple of gigs and loved the art work. If I was closer I would come down and support you. I started collecting Enchantica in Polperro (wizard figurines dragons and the like) used to get expensive going on holiday.

If you would like to take part, please pop along to my blog at there is an award for you to collect, if you want to join in please do (not sure what to do please ask) equally if you decide not to take part I will understand.

Hope you have recovered from Polperro etc.

Take care and catch up soon

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
