Windows

We're having another incredibly busy week...
 But are hoping that things will calm down for us soon.

A bit late for this really, but better late than never.
We're linking up with Jane's View From My Window...

On Thursday, we were out working all day. 
One of the jobs was our final clean at a house we have decided to quit taking care of.

The last time we'll see this view...
It's been a bumpy old road with this one & we're happy to be saying goodbye.

We also have one other that we will be finishing in a few weeks time - a job that takes up a lot of our time & energy, when all we really want to do is get our second B&B room up & running, so we feel the moment is right for moving on...

The view from our window.
The lilies are going to be chopped back this weekend & we'll see if they will pick up again.

We desperately need to get some weeding & tidying done.

Blue skies!
It's been lots milder these last few days...

Sunshine!
We haven't even had the wood burner in for the last two nights...

Our sitting room with the table & 2 chairs we've bought recently.
(£12 from the Salvation Army Shop)
The beautiful blanket was crocheted by a guest, Cathy who stayed with us last year.
We thought the table would be nice for guests to enjoy a cosy meal for two... But so far everyone just wants to eat with us!

We rarely use the room, but maybe we'll get in there this weekend...

Another rare occasion - Us sharing our window seat... We were a bit knackered!
Second day of full cleans & straight into making 2 course meals at home...
We don't mind though, as we've had fabulous folks staying with us.

Crushing Sime's knees, which is always good fun!

We just have 1 more day of cleans to do & then we've got 2 whole days off again.

We can do it!!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Love Kay & Sime

Congrats on being able to lighten your cleaning load! That's wonderful that you're able to do that.

Fame at last! I'm glad the blanket was well received and was happy to be able to give something back for your outstanding hospitality.
I'm following in your footsteps - ish. On Monday I go for my induction to become a "home helper" for Age Concern. It's going to be a horrible shock to my system actually having to do housework, but I need this work for a number of reasons, not least of which is that I am turning into a hermit at home by myself all the time. Also, bits of me might start dropping off if I don't get some exercise soon, and this seems like a good way of achieving that. I mean, you two always look fully exercised!
I'd love to say that I'll see you soon, but to be honest the finances might not allow this year. I'm being ultra careful because the income drop I took looks like being about 70% over the year. I don't regret it, but it does mean that I have to be sensible, drat it!
Love to you all - don;t work too hard.

So pleased that you are able to lighten the ' going out to work' load and get the second room up and running. I'm not surprised that guests want to eat with you - you are wonderful people and such good company. Hope you get to sit in that lovely room and relax a bit. x

Enjoy your time off!

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?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
