Full Throttle, No Chaser

We've had the most busiest 2 days of the year so far... We have hemp protein in our porridge every day, which really helps to keep us going! Yesterday, we had a crazy day, the house we cleaned was it's usual hovel & took a lot longer than we'd thought...

We managed to clean the 3 storey house in 5 hours between us, came home & prepared our guest room for folks arriving tomorrow. Any minute now we'll be eating our very late dinner & then it's all systems go

We are loving the blue skies & sunshine, the quietness of the rural roads & this feeling of totally unwinding... The day after we left the UK, we discovered our daughter, Rose had car problems - so Sime was "on pins" until she reported that it was all sorted! She only passed her test last June & he's struggled with the idea that we now have 2 daughters on the road (double the worry for him) & he likes to get involved with any car related problems either of them have. I get concerned, but know that both the girls are sensible, responsible young women, who will ask for our help if they need it! So the car saga lasted for a week, Rose has discovered the joys of owning a vehicle & Sime has finally relaxed & has completely immersed hi
