Thursday View

Linking up with Jane again... 
Here's today's view(s).

Late afternoon sunshine - looking out of our dining room...

The lilies do look like they are on their way out.
Poor things...

They are usually blooming by now...

Maybe the sun will pick them up...

Sime's been adding extra quirkiness to our dining room just lately...

We now have forks for door handles.
I came up with the idea of making the screws look more colourful!

This is our dining table light.
Sime's named it too... Clarity!

I think we've shared a photo of the Euphonium before.
Which lives above the wood burner...

Flea, this morning in his usual bed...
Looks like he has a piece of bamboo coming out of him!

Lupin tonight... Chilling in front of the computer.

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting Mr & Mrs Sft... Which was wonderful!
Our first blog friends to have visited Meadowcroft.
We had a great pep talk about Saving For Travel & enjoyed sharing travel stories...
Surprise, surprise!

Dinner time now...

Hope you're all having a good week.

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.  
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 instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

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 …
