Polperro

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.

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 http://tarragonnthyme.blogspot.co.uk/ 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

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx





Nettles

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 rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…
