The Essence Of Tea


It's coming to the end of the tourist season, so once the holidaymakers have left this weekend - life is set to get quieter...

We've had a busy time again & not only with cleaning, but putting together a quote for a potential new client & doing an inventory for the huge house of another.

Amongst it all - we've also made some time to see our girls, who now both live 30 miles away...

So we visited The Essence Of Tea in Falmouth...
A peaceful haven in the middle of town, selling teas from China & Taiwan.
We loved it & will definitely go again! 

We enjoyed some time together drinking...

A large pot of Nantou green tea & smaller pot of  1992 Da Ye Sheng Puerh.
We also had a large dish of veggie sushi.
 (which we forgot to photograph, but was really delicious)!

We also ate later near the harbour & watched the black & white yacht being cleaned & polished by a team of people...

I've also had a blood test, which for the first time in 6 years - hurt like mad!

And bruised...

But I don't mind, as I've heard today that my thyroid is again calming down!

Just got to get Sime's medication sorted...

Otherwise I'll be signing him up for the Halloween Zombie Walk in St Austell on Monday...

Which actually he'd be quite pleased about!

We still have lots of holiday photos yet to share... 
Castles, lakes, mountain passes & Portmeirion...

When we've got more time!

See you soon.

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 …
