Life As We Know It

Apologies for yesterday's post...
For those of you who don't know Sime - he is a silly billy & you really shouldn't take much notice of anything he says!

Anyway, here's some photos of the last few days...

Gorran Haven
The beach was packed today - didn't look much like fun to us...

A very chilled out Floobs...
(He's Sime's baby boy)

Our new garden friend...
We call him Froggy the Toad!

And Waspy the Bee!

Sime's home made chilli & turmeric rice.
We use turmeric a lot - it has fantastic medicinal properties...
It inhibits the growth of cancer cells, protects the liver from toxins, can dissolve gallstones, lower cholesterol, alleviate joint swellings, increase joint flexibility & reduce menstrual pain.   

Leftover chilli, rice & salad with baked sweet potatoes & courgettes.
We bake the potatoes dry & sprinkled the courgettes with smoked paprika & soy sauce.

The view from work yesterday afternoon...
A dull, but humid day!

A similar view today from another property just further around the bay.
 The boat in the foreground is pulling 2 people in a dinghy at great speed!

A rainbow at the weekend - just for us...

And us at home tonight!

We've just watched a lovely French film called The Grocer's Son, which has made us want to go to France again...

But for now - we have more fun packed days ahead.
Cleaning houses in hot weather - not nice, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that this weekend's departures leave the cottages a bit tidier than last week... Haha!!!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Fabulous photos. Thanks for the info about turmeric. I have some in the cupboard so I'll use it the next time I cook rice. We had chili for tea today - I made a huge panful so we may well be having it tomorrow aswell. I always think it's better on the second day.

Hi Scarlet, We always make lots & either have it the day after or put some in the freezer & we agree, always tastes better the next day!

Onions cooked in a little water & a sprinkle of turmeric are delicious - they make a lovely accompaniment to vegan burgers!

Thanks Molly - we do eat well & love it!

Floobs is very popular with our guests, as he loves lots of fuss!

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.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
