Three Peas In A Pod

Hugo had a meeting at the circus school today, so we decided to all go because it's near to where the girlies both live & we were able to organise a breakfast meet-up!

This morning at Jubilee Wharf...

The entrance to Miss Peapod's has been decorated.

The Smithlets

Vegan brekkie, which was really good.
Just a shame we'd forgotten to ask them to not put margarine on our toast...

The view from our dining room around 5pm today...
Can you see the lone daff?
Linking up with Jane at The Maple Syrup Mob.

Daffs in the garden.

Fam 5

Poor Rose isn't well, but so glad we managed to see her & give her lots of hugs.

Sime's tooth saga continues... Looks like he may have to return to the dentist tomorrow!

We have more guests arriving tomorrow, so lots to do... As usual!

Bye for now,

Kay & Sime

It's so green there, and a flower!?! I'm starting to get pretty bad cabin fever with this winter.

Has Sime been able to eat okay? Mouth pain is so horrendous. :(

I hope all is well with the both of you and all your family. Looking forward to your next post - no pressure, but it is an unusually long gap between posts for you.
Sorry for not replying sooner & Karin - thanks for your concern... We're fine, Sime's pretty much back to normal & Rose is doing ok, but we're just incredibly busy with work during the day & have had back-to-back B&B guests for the last 3 weeks, so there's been breakfasts & evening meals to dish up - Absolutely loving it though! Hope to get around to blogging soon...

K&S :)

Glad to hear there are lots of good reasons for your lack of blog posts and glad you are enjoying all the busy-ness. :)

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
