Glastonbury

On Sunday we set off on another trip upcountry & on the way we took a detour...
Our blog friend, Kath lives in Glastonbury & does a very good (unpaid) job, promoting the town & surrounding area. 
So we thought it's about time we visited.

Our growing friendship with Kath spurred us on to ask if we could meet up & were thrilled when she invited us round for a cuppa!
Well that cuppa turned into a lovely day - Kath & Hubby took us on a tour & Sime got busy with the camera...

You might be able to zoom in - a quirky jubilee scene!

Jubilee weekend & we arrived just in time to see this procession...

Town Crier.

We last ate here over 20 years ago...

It had changed a bit, but we liked it.

A vegan feast which was delicious.

There was quite a party atmosphere in the town.
The Big Lunch was taking place & lots of folks were joining in...

They brought their own tables & food...

And took over the high street...

Some made quite an effort...

Glastonbury always has a colourful mix of people, old & young...

A film crew were around too...

As well as St John's Ambulance.

Then there's all the great shops...

Can you see the harpist?

Here's a better view.

Nice looking cafe...

I think this was the lovely smelling shop...

We loved this place...

Kath blogged about these lovely sculptures recently.

Another interesting undercover bit...

This is the wall...

And the floor...




Love this door!




St Margaret's Chapel




In one of the alms houses on the left we met a fascinating iconographer.
Unfortunately, Sime didn't take any photos, but the guy was very interesting & knowledgeable. He was scarily using heavy metal based pigments, but creating some colourful works of art!

Here's Kath... She's lovely!

And we're looking forward to meeting her again soon!

Thank you Kath & Husband!

We had a splendid day!

Kay & Sime

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 …
