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

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.  
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 instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

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

What do you have planned?

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 …
