Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend. We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays. The view from the barn across the land. The barn is made from straw bales. The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats. The outdoor solar shower. The compost loos. One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right. The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space... And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us. We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea. Love Kay and Sime xx

Earth Hour 2013

Transition St Goran has been supporting Earth Hour since 2010...  Tonight will be our 4th Earth Hour feast & if it remains dry - we shall be enjoying a Cotna  bonfire, which is always wonderful! We all take along food & drink to share & surround ourselves with lanterns. Really looking forward to seeing everyone - such a lovely way to end a busy day.  Tomorrow, we're going to be helping Sal & Ryan (our eldest & boyfriend) move from Falmouth to Bristol.  So exciting for them both & something they've been wanting for a while...  We shall miss them though! Don't forget to switch off between 8.30 & 9.30pm for  Earth Hour  & we'd love to hear what others are doing.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Kay & Sime xx

World Food Share

Last night we went over to our friends' at  Cotna  again for a leaving & birthday party... We enjoyed yet another fabulous feast of veggie food with friends old & new. The salad leaves & potatoes are all grown on the smallholding. And there were lots of lovely dishes to accompany, including Bulgarian Bean Soup, Indian Lentil Dhal, Arabian Rice, Mexican Corn Bread & Cornish Rock Samphire... Amazingly, none of us ever discuss what we're making, but it always works out just perfectly & a s ever - we had a great night with lovely folks!  Happy 25th Birthday to Matteo! Who enjoyed another of Magie's delicious cakes.  Matteo has been WWOOFing at Cotna for a year now... And is sadly leaving tomorrow to travel around the UK before returning home to Italy in September. We've all enjoyed getting to know him & hope he will keep in touch. Hope you've all had or are having a good weekend. It's been quite stormy here since just after midnight last
