Going Dutch

Léah & Jorrik

We've had an entertaining few days with the guests who left today.
They both have a theatrical background...
 Léah is a jazz singer, dance & yoga teacher. Jorrik is a musician, actor & carpenter.

Below are videos of their performances...

They enjoyed their time here - exploring the coastal paths & beaches...
And our evenings have been filled with vibrant conversation, songs & laughter!
So far all our guests have left a big impression on us, sharing their lives & filling us with ideas.
It is exhausting entertaining lots, but it's interesting to see & hear how others live.
We have learnt lots already, but also have taught lots too...
We have inspired folks with our bread & beer making, vegan cookery & our simple living - which is lovely!
It doesn't take much to make us happy...
 But we are very grateful to be meeting so many lovely folks right now!
Hope you are all having a good week.
Kay & Sime

Yess!!

we really enjoyed the inspiring, tasty and nutricious breakfasts and dinners we shared with Kay and Simon, sharing life expiriences, silly fantasies and the common background Simon and I share being bassplayers. A shivering night as they told us about a house they once lived in, that had a will of its own..or the beings in it? Me myself I have a few monsters that haunt my inner self, as the video will show..
We had a real culture shock after our stay, entering the London subway on our way home, were people seem to have gotten used to a stressed an agressive way of being and moving around.
Thank you Simon and Kay for a lovely stay at your peaceful residence!

Liefs, Jorrik and Léah

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

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
