All Change

Hugo has finally put his foot down...


And insisted that it's time...

.

To lose his lovely locks...


Sal last cut his hair just before we went to France in January last year...
Wished mine grew that quick!

We're a bit sad about it, as we always are when he has it chopped off... But we'll get over it & Hugo's thrilled to have short hair again, as it doesn't take so long to wash!
Our lovely lad!

Another change for us this week...


Our bright green paintwork on the house has changed...

Rose & Asa showing off our newly painted porch.

Yes we're getting very fashionable now - no more bright green...
We've gone for the more modern French grey!

The weather keeps changing too...

Thursday morning was dull, wet & miserable...
So much so - lots of campers were leaving our little peninsula & getting in the way of us getting Hugo to the train station!

 By the afternoon it was lovely & warm!
(there's our tipi again)

Before we arrived to pick Hugo up in the late afternoon - we had gone to work in Portmellon.
Within minutes of getting to the house we were cleaning, there was an almighty downpour & water was gushing down the bank - we just had to sit & wait in the car. Luckily, we were near the top of the bank & within minutes of the rain stopping - the sun came out & dried it all up again...

Hugo was helping & performing at Circo Kernow's playfest in Truro.
Unfortunately, we missed his performance because we were working... But we got to spend a couple of hours lying in the sun & chatting with our friends - who were also working at the festival.

The Big Top

Helen's funky new business!

Her crumpets are vegan & absolutely delicious.
We forgot to take a photo, but we had Helen's homemade vegan wild rocket & walnut pesto on our crumpets - which was also amazingly good!


 We've had a tiring day today & will no doubt have another long day tomorrow.
We do have Sunday & Monday off though - hooray!!!

Anyway, we must get to bed...

Night, night.

Hope you all have a good weekend!

what fun! I want to know what happened to Hugo's chopped off hair?

Hugo now has 'wash and go' hair! It looks good!
I like your new door color - it looks very warm and inviting.
Wishing you an extra happy weekend Kay!

Helen says they are really easy to make... But I can't remember all the ingredients... I think it involved SR flour, pasta flour & vinegar, but they were the best crumpets we'd ever tasted!

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!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

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 …
