Rewilding Our Life - Day 3

We returned home too late last night to write about our day, but here we are...
Day 3's activity was to sit under/by a tree for 30 minutes, so as we were heading to Hugo's college - we decided to have a little detour to Idless Woods.

Just before the woods we passed a wonderful sight.
An old phone box turned into a book exchange... Such a great idea!

In the woods... 
It was a mild, calm day.

We saw this cottage through the trees - it was lovely watching the smoke.


We had the whole place to ourselves.


The branches always seem to make shelters when they fall. 

Though this one was man-made!

We sat quietly for 30 minutes just listening to the birds.

We don't have many trees around our home, we live high above the sea & it's very exposed.
 Before we moved here, we lived in a woodland... So being amongst trees feels like home!

Lovely :)
I walk Jake through the forest every day for an hour and find it very relaxing and balancing.

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 …

Top Of The World

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…
