A Bit Behind


We are so busy, we're struggling to keep up with our blog, as well as read others...

We haven't even shared all our holiday photos yet, but Sime took this video of our evening walk on Bodmin Moor...

And here's a photo from today...

Mondays Cafe reunion.

A meal at Sam's On The Beach which we will post about later.

Night, night & hope you are all well!

Kay & Sime

I was just thinking you were quiet, glad to know everything is OK. That table with it's close proximity to the sea looks like a wonderful place to eat lunch and catch up. I bet diners at this table are apt to linger...and linger...

Hi Ya - waves frantically hope you both okay. You went Bodmin then! Sorry couldn't resist. You might have guessed I am an avid Doc Martin fan, but everytime we used to go and stay at our local site in Otterham whenever we used to go into Port Wen (Port Isaac for the uninitiated) we used to end up bumping into Martin Clunes or the cast filming in the streets.

Glad everything is working out well. Things have been hectic here and I still haven't had a holiday! Will get there in the end. Glad the B& B working it sounds as though you have hit your forte. You are both so sociable in any event so I am not surprised but I am So pleased for you both. Kay I have a friend who is suffering with the underactive thyroid problem and I mentioned that you were dealing with it in your inimitable way and that you were using a herbal product rather than the synthetically produced thyroxine. Would you mind emailing me the details so I can pass the information on to her please so that she like you can make an informed decision.

Hope you have that log burner going I know I would if I was down there. One day you may well find me on your doorstep - you never know!

Take care

Love to you both

Thanks Gai - I've really enjoyed catching up with your posts!

He sounds like a proper broad Pottery bloke on the video, but I agree!

We're still here & yes it's a great place to eat, we were told we could only have the table for 2 hours, but as the place wasn't too busy... We stayed for nearly 3 hours instead!

Good to hear from you Pattypan!

I have the opposite condition to your friend, but I can help... Will email you!

We love for you to drop in!

Kay :)
Thanks Catherine - hope the snow doesn't descend on you just yet!

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
