Docker Teeth

Arinna & Giles

We are feeling very lucky to have shared our house again with such lovely people!

Over the last 6 days these guys have been a big part of our lives...
We have eaten together, talked until late & laughed lots. 
Last night we said our goodbyes with sadness & hope that one day we will get to visit them in Canada!

This morning we had to leave early for our home education group & on our return we had a fantastic surprise - a block of vegan chocolate & a beautiful card!

"Thank you deeply for providing such a great place to stay! We have felt so welcome and loved hanging out with you guys, sharing stories about shit, dockers, ghosts, nut cases, adventures...And on and on! 
An enriching experience for us to meet two 'switched on' people who are doing good in the world.
The food you provided for us was just fabulous! The beer/beverages were also magic...
Really, the house here provided such a good base for our travel adventure around the Cornwall area and we look forward to coming back one day.
You are both welcome (any time) to come and stay with us in Canada. It would be a pleasure. 
Continued good fortune, great health and happiness to you both as we depart..."
Wow!!!
We are truly astounded!

Arinna has inspired us to think seriously about the direction of our housekeeping business & Giles has impressed us with his motivation, energy & adventure stories!

Thank you so much guys - it's been an absolute pleasure!

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…

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
