Snowdonia

Hugo managed to get us online...
 Our ISP supplies us with mobile WIFI, but it took a bit of working out!
 So here's the story so far...

It was a really long journey on Friday – nearly 11 hours on the road, but we had decided to drive the length of Wales, instead of taking the motorway & the scenery since arriving in Wales has been spectacular!

 We love being in the mountains & our destination certainly hasn’t disappointed. Far from it, it’s a beautiful place & we are having a fantastic time!

Snowdonia

It had been 29 degrees in the car for the main part of our journey, so it was such a relief when we were finally able to get out, explore & potter about.



Our peaceful haven amongst the mountains...

Which is just perfect...

And we are very happy to be here...

Our caravan has surpassed our expectations – it’s cosy, in a perfect location & surrounded by beautiful, peaceful countryside. What’s more, we are only a short walk from Beddgelert & 10 minutes from one of the footpaths to the Snowdon summit...
It's so wonderful to be waking up every morning to such wonderful views!



Having some leisure time together is wonderful. We are already enjoying relaxing, walking, reading, chatting & laughing together again. It just feels so long since we last had some quality time.
We feel very lucky that we enjoy each other’s company & that we laugh lots – we really do know how to have a good time, but the best moments are always those that don’t cost much...

Bye for now,

Kay, Sime & Hugo

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.
