Mevagissey Harbour

Monday's weather was really dull, but we fancied getting out in the fresh air.
Last week, we saw a grey seal just outside the harbour, but the photos & video didn't come out very well.
We thought we may see him again, but he was nowhere to be seen...

We love this time of year - when we get places to ourselves...

Yesterday, we had a full day out in the sunshine...
On Perranporth Beach...

And ended the day at Truro's City Of Lights...
Lantern Parade & switch on of the Christmas lights.

More to follow soon...

Bye for now,

Kay & Sime

Oh I know 2 dogs who would have loved that beach!

Some of your photos are like picture postcards.
Is that a ponytail I spy on Sime? Never noticed it before if it is.

The days do look grey - but wonderful photos. And a lighthouse too BLISS!
Love Leanne

Beautiful pictures and how lucky you are to live there. One day I'd love to visit, maybe I'll see you there. Maa

A full day in the sun sounds perfect! We finally got sun here & enjoyed it a lot today.

You live in such a lovely area. How exciting that you saw a seal! I would have been bursting!
Hello - we're being rubbish at keeping up...

Jane - yes, it's great outside of holiday season!

Kath - that beach is 3 miles long, your doggies would love it!

Leanne - Sime's had his ponytail for about 15 years. His hair used to be down to his bum, but then he shaved it all off!

Sue - Cornwall is beautiful, especially out of season!

Catherine - That doorway is in a cafe in Truro, we thought it was a bit like our dining room... But tidier!

Molly - It was incredible to see the seal, we had no idea there would any near to where we live...

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

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
