Rewilding Our Life - Days 26 to 30 and Beyond

We've had a crazy week of work & work related problems, as well as appointments & stuff to sort around Bebe. Our days have been incredibly full, exhausting & there's still so much more to do...
But the one thing that last month's rewilding challenge has done for us - we've made time to be outside... Even when things have been hectic this week & we've barely been able to put one foot in front of the other, we've made time to just sit & eat our lunch or spent a few minutes on the beach before collecting Bebe from daycare.

We've managed a few visits to Hemmick & have loved just sitting quietly watching the waves...





We enjoyed watching a ship just off Portmellon Cove...




Spent some time in North cornwall last weekend...




We've collected rubbish on Hemmick...



And driftwood...


Enjoyed a paddle in the warm sunshine on Monday...


And channelling the stream on Wednesday...



We realise how important it is for us to escape & even spending just 30 minutes out in nature is enough for us to feel recharged... 
We are also making preparations for a road trip to the Swiss Alps very soon, just the two of us this time. The ferry & campsite are booked & we are getting excited... Really looking forward to some time amongst mountains & lakes again.

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…
