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 :)
Rambler said…
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 garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...

Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.

Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
