La Luna

On Monday, we enjoyed a get-together with lovely friends.
We shared delicious vegan food, most of which we forgot to photograph...
We had Sheila's delicious butternut squash curry, Magie's home made seedy bread, our rice & roasted buckwheat burgers.

I remembered to get the camera out for dessert.
Magie isn't vegan or veggie, but she especially made this vegan "Apple Crisp" for the first time.

It was so good & we were thrilled when she said we could take the leftovers!

We had a lovely evening overlooking the sea & Portmellon Bay.

And the moon was beautiful... Especially through Patrick's telescope!

Sime tried zooming in.

Talking of the moon always makes me think of this...

 Which I better dedicate to Sime, who has missed out (through no fault of his own - other than being a musician who has to practice) on the last piece of Magie's pud! 

Sorry... I'll make it up to you ♥

Tomorrow, we have to clean the house & prepare 2 or maybe 3 courses for some lovely folk coming for lunch... I told Sime I'd get prepared tonight & guess what? I haven't done a thing...
Hopeless. Case.

I'm sure it will all come together tomorrow!

Night, night.

I like this song, but sung by Van Morrison.

The best moon song ever? Blue Moon by The Marcels http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu4OkmzqK2E

It never fails to bring a big smile to my face when I hear it!

I love that song! The moon can be so pretty and it sounds like you had a lovely time. So awesome that you got to bring home the leftover crisp! Yum!!

Kath - Neither of us are Van Morrison fans, but I do love this song & VM's version is the only song of his I like... But for Sime, who's not even a fan of the song... He will tolerate Georgie Fame & me singing along! Blue Moon reminds me of Grease, don't even know if it's in the film...

Catherine - Thank you!

Molly - We did have a lovely, as we always do & the dessert was so good... We'll definitely try making it at home!

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…
