Trebarwith Strand

We had the pleasure of meeting a blog friend & her family yesterday...
We suggested we met up at Trebarwith Strand, a tiny seaside hamlet close to Tintagel.

It rained heavily the whole time & the stream flowing into the sea was in spate...

And more like white rapids!

We had found this place on t'internet & thought it sounded nice.
We spent 3 hours chatting non-stop & the food was ok, but I was disappointed that they say on their website that the bread is home made, but it didn't seem it to us...

Being the greedy guts of the group - Sime & I had cashew nut & celery soup to start, then we had nut burgers - which were quite tasty (but the cheap white rolls were awful)!
The cafe owner was a bit loud & abrupt, he also made a little joke about us staying for so long...
Anyway, we were so busy chatting that we forgot to photograph the food, but nevermind...

It could have been better, so we're not going to give them a plug!

So who did we meet?

J, KL & Scarlet...  

Scarlet was everything we imagined - lovely, friendly, warm & northern! 
(We miss hearing northern accents down here, so that was a real treat)

Although Scarlet's blog is more about living frugally & renovating her home on a budget - which looks great!
I feel we have connected because of our poor treatment from the NHS... We also discovered that we both decided to research our (different) conditions, become experts & have made or are beginning to make changes to our lives - for the better!

Scarlet & J share a real bond...
They are very warm & gentle with each other & their daughter, KL
(who, by the way - is gorgeous)!

We are very happy to have met them all (though 3 hours just wasn't enough) & hope we get to see them again soon.

We have more guests arriving this evening from The Netherlands, so the birthday boy is pottering about!

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Kay & Sime

You've made me a little teary - in a good way. We had a fab time too and we hope to see you again next week- 3 hours just wasn't long enough!
Hi Jane, It's great fun meeting up with blog friends... With Scarlet we get to do it all again next week - yay!

K&S :)
Sorry! Enjoy your last night... Hope it's dry for the big pack up in the morning - think you'll love Mullion & at least you'll be dry!

See you next week.

K&S :)

How lovely to meet up with blog friends. I would love to have a big party where we could all get together and meet in person, wouldn't that be fun (and exhausting- imagine all the chatter!).

Wishing you and your sweetie a lovely week Kay!

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
