High Impact Week

We have cleaned 12 properties in the last week & occasionally have worked into the evening.
We seem to have been out lots too & so we ended up shelving No Impact Week because we really didn't have time to think about it - let alone do it!

So as well as clean...

We visited St Ives Guildhall...

And saw Mark Thomas

Who was a brilliant storyteller...

We ran the home education meeting & fought off a church cafe - who had taken over our space during the Summer & who announced that the kids were no longer allowed to play in the music room.
The place is a teenage centre which we get to use during the day, we use it because it is perfect for teenagers - a fully equipped music studio in the attic, a kitchen - where we can support the kids to dish up some lunch & it also has a basement for chilling out in.
So a battle began... Sime & the kids decided to continue with their usual racket & yesterday, we heard that the church group want to swap their day - phew!

It's been a lovely time of catching up with friends & enjoying meals together - it seems such a long time since we last did it, so thank you - a delicious meal cooked by Jane, Simon, Madi & Biby - as wonderful as ever guys! You know we'll pay you back in the Winter...XXX
And a fab meal out with Lesley & Melvin in Fowey - we had a great night out & look forward to doing it again! XX

We also caught up with our friend Stuart O'Connor, who is a real-life troubadour, a lovely, lovely guy & we are all very fond of him.


This time he was touring Cornwall with a friend from Japan, Goga.





We're going on holiday in a few days time & at the same time, Rose & Asa will be moving out...

They have found a garden flat in Falmouth, so will be near to Sal & Ryan.

We are really pleased for them, but it is also sad too - our baby girl is leaving us & we will miss her terribly. We know from experience it will get easier in time & it's going to be lovely for the girls to be close again.

It's going to be strange returning home to an empty house, but we'll not think about that just yet...


Goodnight!

Kay & Sime xx

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…

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

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!!! ♥
