Johnny's Cafe In Hayle

We'd heard good reports about this place & just never managed to get here...
Until last week!

So glad we made the effort...

Johnny's has a homely, shabby chic feel about it.

They sell a selection of second hand bits, crafts & wholefoods...

As well as being a veggie cafe...

The mismatched crockery made us feel very much at home!

Butternut squash soup... 

Bean burger, char-grilled veg & salad...

Victoria Sponge with choccie filling.
All vegan, all really delicious - we loved it!

Afterwards, we thought we should walk off our 3 course meal...
This is the beach looking over towards St Ives & what you can't see - is just how bloody cold & windy it was!

Bye for now.

It seems as though Cornwall is THE place for decent vegan food!

You seem to have a lot of interesting caf├ęs near you. Did you detect any coconut milk or curry flavours in the butternut squash soup? It's one of our favourites.

It looks like a cute restaurant! We love to try out new ones, especially when they have a quirky type of atmosphere.

We've been getting a nasty wind off of Lake Michigan here lately. Brrr! Stay warm!

What a lovely place. The food looks delicious, and I can imagine sitting chatting on that sofa for hours!

That food looks amazing, I wish we had a vegan restaurant around here. St Ives is a beautiful place and there's nothing like a walk on the beach to blow away the cobwebs x
Ooo that looks like lovely food, and lovely scenery too! I'm jealous..snow here!

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.

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 rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

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 was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.

Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
