Getting Back To basics

We've had another very busy week, but we are very happy to be escaping for a few days.

We decided that as it's our Silver Wedding Anniversary on Monday, we should do something a bit different...
So we're going to be staying in a yurt on Bodmin Moor!


It's going to be wonderful...
No computer.
No phone.
No work.

Just time to chill out, enjoy some moorland walks, eat, drink, be merry & have lots of fun!!!

See you when we get back.

Congrats on 25 years.
LOVE the yurt idea! (life got in our way to celebrate our 25th so we have just booked for our 26th - we are staying in a light house) so i was way excited for you re the yurt. Great minds think alike we'd much rather stay alternative than in a posh motel.
ENJOY enjoy Enjoy!
Love Leanne

Hope you have a lovely time in the yurt and Happy Anniversary for Monday. 25 years is worth celebrating. It's our 28th tomorrow - we had a bit of a party 3 years ago.

Conrgatulations and heres to many more years together. Kay you look so pretty, but I would not have recognised Sime with all that dark hair LOL
Enjoy your break, you deserve it!

Happy anniversary to you both! What a great way to celebrate, too. I love yurts! I hope you have a lovely time. :)

Well done you two. I look forward to hearing about living in a yurt. It's on my bucket list.
Many Congratulation on your Silver Wedding. It's our 28th on the 15th. I'd love to stay in a yurt but OH is not so keen. On our 27th we went to Guernesey and met a sweet couple who were celebrating their 60th and were reliving their honeymoom to Guernesey.

Thanks Leanne - we would love to stay in a lighthouse!

We loved the yurt so much - we are seriously thinking about buying one to live in (probably when Hugo's left us)!

Thanks Catherine - looks like you had a good time too... We didn't see any tigers, but we did make lots of kitty friends!

Thank you guys - we had a brilliant time!

Our first proper holiday in years without any kidlets... Strange but very nice!

Thanks Susan - the yurt was fantastic & we loved the campsite too!

Thanks Jane - the first day was drizzly & foggy, but then it was glorious sunshine for the rest of the week!
We'd love to be snowed in... Preferably in a log cabin with a roaring fire!!!

Thanks Karin - we had a great time & happy 28th to you! It was suggested that we have a 'do' - but neither of us are really party people. We were more or less forced into a reception 2 weeks after our wedding!

Thanks Kath - We had to get a special licence because we married within 2 weeks of deciding to do it, so I just wore the frock my mum bought for my 21st & Sime wore his 'Miami Vice' gig gear! Sime's hair got very long after that... Until he became a slap head...

Thanks Sooz!

Thanks Molly - It was brilliant & we loved the yurt!

Thanks Gai - The yurt was fantastic, but I have to say - our friends have two on their land & they are far more luxurious!

We shall be posting photos very soon.

Thanks Teresa - congratulations to you too for Saturday.

Are you doing anything nice?

Our yurt was like glamping, a step up from being in a tent - there are some fab alternative holiday ideas. Sime fancies staying on a train carriage next...

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 …

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. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. 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 i…

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