This Morning's View

It's actually been warm enough to eat breakfast outside...
Yippee! 

We just want to make the most of the sunshine - though do have a huge house clean to do today.
A clean that I really am not keen on, but Sime thinks we should continue with...  
And just because we're totally insane, we're going to meet a potentially new customer in a few minutes.

Linking up with Jane's View From My Window.

The perfect time to be here...
Blue skies, warm sunshine & just the sound of birds singing!

A gorgeous view (in my opinion) through our rather grubby dining room window!
Sime's finally hacking back the poor lilies.

Gloopy porridge for brekkie...

And a cuddly kitty loving the sunshine...


They both love us being outside with them...



We've got dandelions everywhere, which I'm hoping our lovely landlord won't mow down before we get a chance to pick them - he thinks he's helping us out by keeping the grass down & making it look nice for guests, but we want to make wine...


It's going to be a long day & we don't expect to be home until tonight...

Hope you're all having a warm & sunny week!

Love Kay (& Sime)

I love that photo of your sitting area, I don't think I've seen that view before, what a lovely sunny place to sit.
I'm making your nettle soup recipe tonight (and yes I will remember to take the bay leaf out LOL).

Thanks Catherine - hope you have some sunshine too... Have a great weekend!

Love K&S xx
It's nice, but gets a bit breezy most of the time - we've really missed sitting out...

Hope you enjoy the soup - have a great weekend!

Love K&S xx
We've never made it, but have wanted to for years & promised ourselves that we'd make some this year, though Sime's leaning more towards dandelion beer instead... Syrup sounds a nice idea - need to check that out!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love Kay & Sime xx

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 …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

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?
