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!

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 rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

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
