Blue Skies...

We had some sunshine over the weekend...

Which we got a glimpse of between jobs...
Portmellon

Mevagissey





On Sunday we even managed a picnic at Pendower...

Which is on The Roseland...





The roundhouses at Veryan...

A favourite place... 
The owners are lovely people & they've missed Sime's silly comments in their visitor's book - as we haven't visited for 2 years... But he made up for it by writing lots!!!

There is a little trail around the pond...

We rather like this part of the trail... 

The teapot walk...


It was nice going back...

And even nicer to have some sun!

Hope you're all having a good week.
We've heard there's a heatwave on it's way, but we'll not hold our breath...

Seeing Scarlet & family again tomorrow - they are bravely getting the full Smith clan treatment...

Wonder if they know what they are letting themselves in for?

Lovely blue skies! I LOVE the photo with the blue flowers in the foreground (can't remember what they're called now, the ones on that big shrub!) We had sunshine today for the first time in weeks..yey! Did some hoeing in the garden!

It all looks gorgeous, I love the round houses. Do they have crosses on the top to stop witches landing on the roofs? (I'm sure I read that somewhere).
Hahaha... Thank you!

Just wished it would stay a bit longer!

There are 5 of them altogether. They were built by Reverend Trist for his daughters & we've been told the reason for them being round, was so the devil couldn't hide in any corners! The crosses are probably for extra protection...

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 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
