You both certainly get a lot of exercise with all of that cleaning! I often wish I had a more physical job. It would be refreshing!

Enjoy your time out! xx

Sounds like you two deserve some time to relax ~ you've been busy!

Wishing the two of you happy, sunny, joy filled days off!

What a busy time you’ve had! Hope you are having a lovely few days off and enjoying some wonderful weather.
Seeing the Minack Theatre brought back all kinds of memories for us. We love walking around Porthcurno and have passed the theatre many times but have never actually gone to a performance. Suzanne Vega is a blast from my past too. She’s great.
Sounds like you have a great community spirit. What a kind offer from the Vicar. Lovely to see you two enjoying yourself with the wine-French I noticed!
Congrats on those new jobs!

Hi Molly - Most of the time it's great, but it can be exhausting too!

Kay :)
Thank you Mrs Thrifty - we are so looking forward to it!

Kay :)
Thanks Catherine - the weather's not so good now, but we don't care!

Have a good weekend!

Kay :)
Funnily enough we found 2 massive kaftans the other day at the big house we were cleaning, we thought perhaps Demis Roussos had been visting...

See you tomorrow!

Kay :)
Thanks Sft - Porthcurno is a stunning beach, we always think it looks really exotic...

We do have lots of lovely folks around us & the vicar is just a sweet woman who everyone loves!

Kay :)
I have 4 days off this week too (thank you Mrs Queen!) Hope you enjoy them! x
Thanks Sooz - we did!

Hope you did too!

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…
