Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk.
We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...

Gorran Haven Harbour.
This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...

Gorran Haven.

It was chilly, but warm in the sun...

Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!

First sign of Spring...

Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...

We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...

With a lovely view of the beach...

Lamledra House.
We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance. 
They do have some interesting guests there...

It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...

Cornish herringbone wall.

A last look back before going into the cold dark shade...

A view of the next bay, our beach...

We walked down to Hemmick just as the sun was setting...

And the temperature dropped...

We'd been walking for over 4 hours & now had to climb the steep road home...

But first, we had get through the gushing river over the lane.
With our last ounce of energy, we decided to climb the wall & run through it!
We then continued the journey home, staggering & groaning uphill...

We made it, but haven't half suffered today - our legs, hips & backs are definitely feeling their age...

And just for Kath... The woolly hats are gone - for now anyway!

Night, night.

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…

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 …

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…
