View From Our Window

We're still here & just had 2 days off in the lovely sunshine... Linking up with  Jane ... Late again! The lilies are looking amazing... We're very happy to see them! Will post more soon, but are just enjoying being outside when not working... Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Kay & Sime xx

Work, Weather, Window Views & Night Walking

Hello everyone & sorry for our absence... We've had lots of guests in over the last 2 weeks & done 14 house cleans in 8 days... Just crazy! Then there's been meetings, home education group, college open evening, as well as squeezing in a nice night out...  It's all been very exhausting, so we're treating ourselves to an overnight staycation tomorrow - leaving Hugo to man the fort.  Lots of our guests keep telling us to try out  Airbnb  for ourselves & that's what we're doing. At some point soon, we'll hopefully find time to book our winter holiday with the kidlets - our sealed pot is filling up & mainly from generous guests & customers.  See  Saving For Travel's blog  for more info. We've had mixed weather this week, quite stormy & cold at the beginning, but on Wednesday night the sky cleared & the sun came out again... Amazingly, it's been out ever since! Better late than never... Linking up wi

This Morning's View

It's actually been warm enough to eat breakfast outside... Yippee!  We just want to make the most of the sunshine - though do have a huge house clean to do today. A clean that I really am not keen on, but Sime thinks we should continue with...   And just because we're totally insane, we're going to meet a potentially new customer in a few minutes. Linking up with  Jane's View From My Window . The perfect time to be here... Blue skies, warm sunshine & just the sound of birds singing! A gorgeous view (in my opinion) through our rather grubby dining room window! Sime's finally hacking back the poor lilies. Gloopy porridge for brekkie... And a cuddly kitty loving the sunshine... They both love us being outside with them... We've got dandelions everywhere, which I'm hoping our lovely landlord won't mow down before we get a chance to pick them - he thinks he's helping us out by keeping the gras


Another whirlwind of a week...  Filled with busy work days, lovely guests & surprise family visit! Last Thursday, we went to see the  Eden Choir  at the Eden Cafe with Asa's parents... Melvin & Lesley also spent their last night in Cornwall at Meadowcroft . Their second stay with us & we feel honoured to have them... Especially as it gives us chance to show our appreciation for Lesley's fabulous homemade Christmas gifts - which we have been extremely lucky to receive over the past few years... Including delicious homemade chocolates! The Dolphins Fly  played their first gig of the year... Which was a crazy night & ended in a bar room brawl... Nice though, as our friends came along too! Gorran Haven Beach on Tuesday morning... And 5 minutes later the clouds came over... Lupe enjoying a roll in the dirt... Fleaby fast asleep & stretched out... We have loved having another couple return all the way from

The Best Job In The World

We've had lovely warm sunshine today. It's been an absolute pleasure spending the day in such beautiful surroundings & we never take any of it for granted...  We may work incredibly hard, but it beats being employed in social care. It's days like today, that make us realise how lucky we are to be here, to have taken the opportunities that came our way & not only feel satisfied that we did make the right decisions, but are continuing to do so. We are filled with excitement about the changes we are making business wise & feel it's going to be a great year! Linking in with Jane's  View From My Window Here's  Our Thursday view   & our usual double act! Bye for now, Kay & Sime xx


We're having another incredibly busy week...  But are hoping that things will calm down for us soon. A bit late for this really, but better late than never. We're linking up with  Jane's  View From My Window... On Thursday, we were out working all day.  One of the jobs was our final clean at a house we have decided to quit taking care of. The last time we'll see this view... It's been a bumpy old road with this one & we're happy to be saying goodbye. We also have one other that we will be finishing in a few weeks time - a job that takes up a lot of our time & energy, when all we really want to do is get our second B&B room up & running, so we feel the moment is right for moving on... The view from our window. The lilies are going to be chopped back this weekend & we'll see if they will pick up again. We desperately need to get some weeding & tidying done. Blue skies! It's been lots

A Different View

The view from the window of a house we were cleaning this morning... Looking towards Gorran Haven Harbour & the coastal path going around the headland. Linking up with  Jane  again. This is at a freezing cold Mylor Harbour on Tuesday. We did have 4 days off from cleaning, but not sure where the time has gone... Hope you are all well & keeping warm! Kay & Sime xx
