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.

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 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
