Slow Travel

We have always enjoyed road trips and you only have to search through our blog to find many posts featuring our trips. We like this independent, laid-back way of travelling. Staying away from the main routes and instead, exploring the quiet roads away from the traffic. On the rare occasions we have been stuck in hold-ups; we remain calm, go with the flow and if possible just look for an alternative way.

Holidays for us start as soon as we exit the door to our home and not when we arrive at our destination. Travelling is very much part of the whole experience and we'll either pack a picnic for the journey or pick up food once we're on the road...sometimes even both! No hard or fast rules, just making decisions as we go and doing what we feel.

Slow travel is quite wonderful, setting off early and seeing what happens. There are always opportunities presenting themselves - intriguing places we may come across on the way and the people and animals we meet. Leaving our plans open means that we can be flexible and it really is such a nice relaxing way to travel. No timetables to follow, just the freedom of the road and the adventures waiting to happen.

If you have followed our blog for some time, you will know that we are very good at manifesting the things we desire - like our French house, our Cornish cabin, our business, the house and pet sitting, living in a community, our Canadian trip, etc, etc. Big road trips for us very often start out in the same way; a small sentence in our little manifesting notebook. During our stay in Hampshire, we have discussed in more detail our plans for a new campervan. We have had several over the years and we knew that eventually we would have one again, so here we are - ready and busy visualising our dream van... A new campervan with rustic interior. A fixed bed at the back with storage space/garage underneath. Kitchen with a hob, oven, sink, fridge and a decent amount of work surfaces to allow us to cook together. A small dining area and shower room with a fancy new compost toilet. We also want solar panels, so we can be off-grid. We do already have pictures on our cabin wall of some campervans we like, but now we are going to put our ideas out there, attracting the perfect van for us and bringing it into our lives.

We have done this kind of manifesting many times and our wooden cabin actually came to us in just 2 weeks. We dreamed it up, then we both drew a picture in our notebook and BOOM! There it was! We didn't have the money, but we said yes - we want it! We made a decision and went for it and the money came to us. Three months later, we were living in our dream home on a lovely community! 
We don't focus on the financial side or concern ourselves with how it will come to us, instead we are just content and secure in the knowledge that whatever we desire will be on it's way. 

So watch this space!!!

Lots of love,
Kay and Sime

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
