Fog & Family

We've had gloomy fog here today...

And warm sunshine in Falmouth this afternoon.

Sal & Ryan were visiting from Bristol for the day, so we enjoyed a catch up!

Night, night.

Wow! You live in such a beautiful place! :) Thanks for sharing the video.
Glad you had a nice family meet, wishing you more of such!
Have a great day!

As it's now a month since your last post, I'm hoping it's only pressure of work - or an unexpected holiday in Hawaii - that is keeping you away. Looking forward to seeing your update - and good news. xx

Spooky Fog! I love your report!

Lovely to see you catching up with loved ones in style.

Hello! I found your blog (which is very nice) while looking for a home education group anywhere from Truro to Penzance. You mentioned running one, is it still going?? I home-schooled my daughter, and she now wants to home-educate her son (5) too, so I'm trying to help her find anything going on for young children. (It's not so much the education side that's the problem, but finding any kids over 4 to do things with who aren't in school! :))

Really getting concerned now. :( I do hope you are both well.
Hi Rambler,

Sorry - we are absolutely fine. Just having long days with work & B&B guests... Making breakfast at 6.30am, going off to work, then coming home & straight into making dinner for guests & entertaining sometimes until after 12am... Any spare time, we like to do something nice or stay in bed!

Sime still takes lots of photos, so I'm sure we'll get them on here at some point.

Sundays are still unplugged for us & it's fantastic. We go walking, potter about in the garden & read. I am crocheting squares & Sime's growing some veggies in pots. So life is good... Exhausting, but we're happy & planning a couple of holidays, as well as continuing to save for a trip with the kidlets next year.

Hope you are well.

Kay :)
Hi Barbara,

Sorry for not replying sooner.

We're out of touch with local groups for little ones, but there is a closed group on FB:

You should find up-to-date info & there's always lots going on.

Kay :)

Phew!!! So glad you're busy in a good way - and delighted that your Sundays are still Special. I'm happy now! :)
Karin said…
Just thought I'd say 'hello'. I seem to be too busy to blog myself at present, so can't complain. Glad to see you were fine a few weeks ago.

I too was concerned by your lack of posts, and relieved to hear that you're all alive and well. Not that I've been posting much recently myself! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to hearing all about it when life gets quieter.

Calling in as missed the regular posts (and comments on our blog too). Glad all sounds happy and busy, look forward to an update post soon :)

Missing you both - and hoping neither of you have succumbed to illness. xx

Hi Kay & Sime,
I'm really missing your posts and keep regularly checking in to see if you have been and posted - but no .
Is it that you no longer have the urge to blog about your days? Maybe other things have taken over or maybe you have managed to get away for a holiday tour to pastures new.
I wish you well, whatever you are doing - but I do miss you. xx
Thank you for being so concerned Rambler!

We are fine... Doing the B&B, as well as our day job has just been incredibly time consuming. We've also had a few trips away, though they have been great - we haven't really managed to get completely away from work & problems surrounding Bebe (Sime's mum)... One of our phones would ring everyday with various problems to deal with!

Anyway, things are set to change for us, so we're hoping to have a little more free time for blogging again!

Watch this space!!!

Bye for now, K&S xx
Rambler said…
Yay!!!! Thank you for replying; so glad to hear you're both OK and will be posting again asap.

Glad to see your last comment Kay and Simon. I've been busy myself, but bearing in mind your health problems, Kay, I was wondering how you are, too.
Thanks Karin - just very busy, but hope to post again soon. K&S xx

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate... But we know... And this is one thing which makes living here difficult. How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?     It just doesn't make sense. Both the posters are from the  Cornwall Vegans  website. If you are in Cornwall or will be on Saturday 22nd April - do support this event! Perhaps you have been considering veganism - this  Vegan Starter Kit  will help you to get started and if you have any questions, need help or ideas for recipes - just ask, we are always happy to talk to folks who want to change their diet for the better.

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Spring Forward

We are gradually coming out of our winter hibernation and two weeks of pet sitting on The Roseland in Cornwall has been a wonderful way to slowly "wake up" and enjoy being with one of our favourite furry chums. We are all enjoying being outside more and after 5 years of caring for our little pal - we have finally made progress with her ability to listen, focus and follow commands! She has always been a delight to be with, but her excitable behaviour tends to get out of control...perhaps she is calming down as she gets older or maybe we are more relaxed around her. We have certainly felt our bond with her has strengthened over the last two weeks and in turn she is eager to please. She can now have time off her lead and is thoroughly enjoying beach play time, with excellent recall.  We had almost given up on the idea that Mabel could enjoy such freedom, so it is a joy to us all! We do hope that she will continue with her Mum, but are confident that we will slip back into our ne
