Family, Friends & Falmouth

Yesterday, we arranged to meet up with Scarlet, J, KL...
 As well as our tribe at Miss Peapod's in Penryn.

It's an ideal place to sit & chat... 
Which we did again for another 3 hours!

Our kidlets had breakfast & Sal had to go off to work...

Rose & Asa then took Hugo off to see their new flat...

Sime's breakfast  - wilted spinach & mushrooms on toast, with beans & chutney!

We were going to park & float into Falmouth afterwards, but it was £16 per car & it was already 2pm...
So we parked in town - £3.50 for 3 hours.

Sime got a bit snap happy...
An electric road/litter cleaning machine - you can tell we don't get out much!

"And it was this big..."

An ancient Falmouth by-law states that all dogs must be wheeled.

Would you want to eat here?

Scarlet bargain hunting...

A lot drier this week...
 Scarlet, KL & J.

How about that for colour co-ordination?
Our summer outfits of course...

We had a fab day, Scarlet & family are just such lovely people & we look forward to seeing them again.

You look like you've known each other forever! Isn't it great that you all met up (twice!).

I for one, love random photos. Keep them coming.

How I would have loved to have met up with you all as well- blogfriends are great in the 'virtual' world, but even better in the real one!!

hey Sime, taking photos of everyday objects and activities makes you a social scientist :-D

What a terrific day you had! OK ~ the dogs having to be 'wheeled' is a very funny law. Haha!

Wishing you both a very beautiful weekend!

We had a fab day with you. It's hard to believe that it was only yesterday, now that we're safely back in Lancashire.The beans are already in soak!
Thank you Sft - it was great to meet up & Scarlet is lovely (so are her family)!

K&S :)
Hi Angela,

It's great meeting virtual friends & funny to think we all know so much about each other before even meeting - so nice though & we'll definitely keep in touch with Scarlet!

K&S :)
I love catching snaps of life, that exist "between the pages". Kay's the spotter, I'm the recorder! I'll have to do a post of random snaps - I've got lots!

Thanks Catherine - we had a lovely day & the sun shone again!

Have a good weekend too!

Glad you're home safe & sound!

Shepherd's Pie on the cards for tomorrow?

Keep in touch.

Looks like a great day! Is that law about the dogs being wheeled serious?
Hi Molly, That's just Sime being silly - He comes out with lots of rubbish like that!

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
