Graduating Kidlets

We've had a hectic few days, but were thrilled to be sharing some nice times...  

We were invited to Rose's graduation at Truro Cathedral... 

The ceremony wasn't kicking in until 11am.
 But it was suggested we got there early to ensure a seat...
(This was taken at 9.30am)!

It was certainly a grand setting & each graduate got a chance to be in the limelight, as they were called up one by one...

And handed their scroll...

Our lovely proud & happy girl...
With her Foundation Degree in Graphic Design & Communication.

The same girl who just a few years ago was painfully shy & would wear her hair over her face to hide...
Finding the confidence to go to college was not easy for Rose, but she did it & wanted to do it. 
Fortunately, she had a great tutor & lecturers who encouraged her to use her wild & wonderful ideas for projects...
 Since then - she has blossomed!

The only girl there wearing baseball shoes...
Afraid she takes after her scruffy parents!
Well done Baba xx ;)

Next up is Hugo...

A very different kind of graduation...

A typical Circo Kernow event - a bit chaotic & last minute, but still a lovely evening!
There was a vegan buffet, which was a nice surprise too.

It was announced that each graduate should get up & perform for their certificate.
A flip of a coin decided what had to be incorporated - Heads for circus props & Tails for fruit & vegetables!
So there were hat tricks...

Chipmunk impressions with grapes...

Juggling with peppers...

Competitions in picking up grapes with only feet on the floor...

More grape tricks...

Pepper eating...

And celery stick balancing...

He's quite normal really...

Each graduate was then presented with their certificates...

National Certificate of Further Education in Performing.
Well done Matey xx :)

And just because we feel guilty leaving Sal out...

She graduated last year before we started the blog...

Both Sal & Ryan graduated from Plymouth Uni.
BA (Hons) in Photography :)

The most important thing to us is that they are happy.
They don't need qualifications to make us feel proud, but we are proud of them all for finding something they like & sticking with it.
 For continuing to be the mature(ish), sensible bunch that they are.

Unlike their parents...

Thank Goodness!!!

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…

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 …
