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.

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.  
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 instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

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?
