In The Flow

There is real joy to be found when life takes you on interesting paths and you suddenly realise you are now doing that very thing you dreamed about.

When you think back to those first ideas many moons ago, you had no way of knowing how to get there, so you either gave up or worked hard to make it happen. As most of you know...we don’t work hard!

Striving for something doesn’t always seem healthy, it can become an obsession and will eventually separate you from the now...from connecting with life in the present moment.

We prefer a much more pleasant journey, exploring the little winding lanes which lead us in different directions and make life more interesting...the destination is set in our minds and we know that we’ll get there eventually!

This is how we live and travel - we always end up having little adventures on the’s what life should be all about.

Our dreams take shape from ideas and then long discussions (we can easily talk for hours and hours). We both get very enthusiastic once we start creating - it probably helps that we have a natural ability to conjure up images, painting virtual pictures and describing scenes with great detail to each other...most of it is just ridiculously bizarre, but sometimes we capture a tiny nugget that erupts like a volcanic explosion and we excitedly jet off together in this direction.

We fill our wish board (usually a door or wall) with images of whatever it is we desire and hold the vision in our minds...I like to think of it like a created memory placed inside a beautiful ornate box, which I hold deep in my heart. We don’t concern ourselves with the how’s, when’s and where’s, but instead continue to enjoy what each day holds and feel confident in the knowledge that our desires will present themselves when the time is right.

Nana Stip-Pep (Sime’s Stepmum) has always said that if we were any more laid-back, we’d be lying down...maybe that’s true, but this disposition thankfully enables us to focus on what we want, rather than what we don’t want. We have no need to dwell on things beyond our control; instead we go with the flow and continue to do whatever feels right. We tweak and adapt, trundling along in our parallel universe, travelling upstream to our little remote island of desire...and yes, our current wish board does have a photo of a wooden cabin on it’s own tiny island!!!

This doesn’t mean we ignorantly go through life thinking only of ourselves, in fact it’s quite the opposite...we deeply care about the world around us and all who reside here. We just wished that everyone had the foresight to recognise exactly what they are capable of doing and instead of struggling through life, could join us on this remarkable and exciting journey.

If you are indeed looking for some inspiration – we hope our blog will encourage your own path of discovery and empowerment.

Please do feel free to contact us on or comment on here to share your thoughts.

Lots of love, Kay (and Sime) xx

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate... But we know... And this is one thing which makes living here difficult. How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?     It just doesn't make sense. Both the posters are from the  Cornwall Vegans  website. If you are in Cornwall or will be on Saturday 22nd April - do support this event! Perhaps you have been considering veganism - this  Vegan Starter Kit  will help you to get started and if you have any questions, need help or ideas for recipes - just ask, we are always happy to talk to folks who want to change their diet for the better. And in case you haven't seen this on iplayer - Here is  Simon Amstell's Carnage . Please, please think seriousl

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Spring Forward

We are gradually coming out of our winter hibernation and two weeks of pet sitting on The Roseland in Cornwall has been a wonderful way to slowly "wake up" and enjoy being with one of our favourite furry chums. We are all enjoying being outside more and after 5 years of caring for our little pal - we have finally made progress with her ability to listen, focus and follow commands! She has always been a delight to be with, but her excitable behaviour tends to get out of control...perhaps she is calming down as she gets older or maybe we are more relaxed around her. We have certainly felt our bond with her has strengthened over the last two weeks and in turn she is eager to please. She can now have time off her lead and is thoroughly enjoying beach play time, with excellent recall.  We had almost given up on the idea that Mabel could enjoy such freedom, so it is a joy to us all! We do hope that she will continue with her Mum, but are confident that we will slip back into our ne
