Blog Awards

We have received these awards recently & would like to thank the ladies who passed them on to us...


Firstly, it was a while ago that Karin passed this on to us & we apologise for not saying anything sooner... Here is Karin's Blog about her garden & it's transformation.  
Also from here you can click on to her other blog: Green And Generous.

We have followed Karin since coming across her during No Impact Week over a year ago & have found her posts to be both interesting & thought provoking.
Karin & her Husband are training to be beekeepers, so it's a very exciting time for them.
They also keep some rather beautiful chickens!


Also a while ago, we received this award from Mum, who doesn't actually follow us, but occasionally makes comments... She can be found here: Mum's Blog & it seems to be a very happy blog!


Lastly, this is from Mrs Thrifty, who is a new follower & already we have found her blog very inspiring.
Here it is: Mrs Thrifty's Blog.

Thank you ladies!

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…
