Time For Us

We are really getting into the swing of life with Bebe & she is doing wonderfully well...
Far better than we ever imagined!


She has been with us for 3 weeks now & has already got to grips with the stairs & where her bedroom & bathroom are... When she arrived she was unsteady & using a walking stick, we had to assist her on the stairs & getting up the step in her bathroom.
Now she has given up her stick & can negotiate the stairs & step independently... Has she just gained confidence or is our vegan diet working wonders?! 

We moved to Cornwall when Hugo was just 5 years old & although Bebe has seen him regularly over the years she just can't accept that he is now a young man, so sadly she greets him as either a stranger or thinks he is Kay's Brother!

Bebe is loving day care & will soon be going in for regular respite. 
We are missing being able to go out in the evenings, so once we are satisfied that she is ready - we will be bringing in a sitter for one evening a week. We know how important it is for all of us to have some time out!

Last weekend, Bebe was invited to a Christmas party at her day care place...
Sime was in charge of hair styling!

And we spent a very pleasant afternoon on The Roseland...

We firstly got drenched in the rain...

Then enjoyed a dry, but windy walk around Portloe. 

Walking up to join the coastal path...

Here's a quick video of the choppy sea too.

Fresh Cornish sea air... Wonderful!

Love Kay & Sime

I'm so happy that Bebe is not only doing well, but improving and thriving under your care. I'm even happier that you 2 will be able to have some time to yourselves on a regular basis. Shame we don't live nearer or we could come over and have Bebe lead us astray with music, dancing and mayhem while you were out!

Bebe would absolutely love that Kath!
She's off to Granny's Disco on Tuesday & we promise to get some dancing vids posted soon!

Love the pic of Si doing Bebe's hair. A girl HAS to look her best when she goes out!
I wouldn't mind betting that your attitude combined with vegan food is a benefit to Bebe that no drugs could ever be.

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. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. 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 i…

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 …

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?
