Light At The End Of The Tunnel

At last work is slowing down...

We have 3 days off this week - which is fantastic!
This morning we slept in without setting the alarm - Woohoo!!!

In two weeks time, we are going back up to Stoke for a few days & then in just over 4 weeks - we'll be going on holiday.

Two whole weeks in Wales...

We're going to be renting a caravan on a farm at the foot of Mount Snowdon.

Photograph From Here

We used to go to Wales a lot many years ago.
When Sal & Rose were 5 & 3 - we walked up & down Snowdon...
It was an amazing, uplifting experience & the girls were fantastic walkers back then.
Everyone we met on that journey - stopped to say how impressed they were with our little girls!
Even when we managed to stray from the path & ended up climbing over a large crevice with a drop of probably thousands of feet - they remained calm & continued climbing with ease...
Unlike me - I went into panic mode as soon as Sime said don't look down!
I froze, cried & was convinced we were all going to fall to our deaths...
We didn't, of course & arriving at the top was wonderful - we climbed through the fog & there was this beautiful sunshine & blue skies & it was October.

So we're looking forward to reading lots of books, walking in forests, chilling out, eating good food & trying to beat Hugo at Scrabble!

We can't wait!!!

Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…

Year Of Adventure

A bit late, but Happy New Year! :-)
We had a lovely time with all our kidlets over Christmas, which has made quite a change - the first time in years that we have all managed to be under one roof during the holiday period! 
We are so pleased that we could do this, as this was to be our last one at Meadowcroft...  Yes, not only are we buying our little French house (which will need lots of TLC before we move in), but we have decided to downsize to a small house overlooking the sea while we visit France and just enjoy ourselves!

We only made the decision at the beginning of December, which meant we needed to get busy decluttering...
Taking the opportunity to move from our big place in Boswinger to a small, very lovely, fully furnished one bedroom converted garage near to Mevagissey...

This was the view from our bedroom early this morning.

We were supposed to be managing the property as a holiday let for our friends, but after having a few days break here - we fell in love with it!!!
So…

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥

An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes... Peppers stuffed with Puy …
