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!

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
