Is Spring Here?

Today has been a beautiful day...

View from our garden.

Sunset was around 6.30pm here today.
Our clocks go forward tonight, so the sun will be setting after 7.30pm... Yippee!

The daffs are on their last legs...

The kitties love us being in the garden...

Beautiful Fleaby!

We've got quite a bit of tidying up to do...

We've been surprised to see garlic growing from being planted 2 years ago...

Lupe by the computer again...

Tired me... It's been a long week!

Our unplugged day tomorrow - I'm hoping to get some crocheting done, we also want to go nettle gathering... Though we still have guests to look after, so we shall see!

We actually have 4 days off cleaning work - which is nice...


We fell in love with this song, which is the theme tune from the French film, Paris - Seize The Day by Wax Tailor. It feels spring like... Hope you like it!

Night, night.

Hi K&S!

We've loved all your photos of Spring! Wasn't Saturday just the most amazing day, we spent most of it walking, reading outside and drinking tea outside...infact staying outside until the sun dipped behind the horizon!

It was wonderful seeing you and we are back down to Cornwall in August so must catch up then.

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 …

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...
