Thursday View

We are linking up with Jane for the Thursday view.

Except, it was such a lovely afternoon yesterday - we thought we'd take some photos early...

Lupe sitting on the dining room window ledge - enjoying the last hour of sunshine.
Though it was still very cold with the chilly wind! 

The view from the window seat next to our dining table.

The sitting room window.

View from our guest room's back window...

And from the side window.

The view from our bedroom this morning...

Our window ledge is where Lupe enjoys being in the summer. 
He likes showing off to folks coming & going down to the beach!

Have a lovely Thursday.

how lovely to wake up in your guest room and see such a beautiful view.

Hahaha! We wouldn't mind a white out... Just for a change!

Thanks Kath - but for most folks who stay, it's the quiet & the darkness (no street lights) that they always comment on.

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…

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 …
