All Change

Hugo has finally put his foot down...


And insisted that it's time...

.

To lose his lovely locks...


Sal last cut his hair just before we went to France in January last year...
Wished mine grew that quick!

We're a bit sad about it, as we always are when he has it chopped off... But we'll get over it & Hugo's thrilled to have short hair again, as it doesn't take so long to wash!
Our lovely lad!

Another change for us this week...


Our bright green paintwork on the house has changed...

Rose & Asa showing off our newly painted porch.

Yes we're getting very fashionable now - no more bright green...
We've gone for the more modern French grey!

The weather keeps changing too...

Thursday morning was dull, wet & miserable...
So much so - lots of campers were leaving our little peninsula & getting in the way of us getting Hugo to the train station!

 By the afternoon it was lovely & warm!
(there's our tipi again)

Before we arrived to pick Hugo up in the late afternoon - we had gone to work in Portmellon.
Within minutes of getting to the house we were cleaning, there was an almighty downpour & water was gushing down the bank - we just had to sit & wait in the car. Luckily, we were near the top of the bank & within minutes of the rain stopping - the sun came out & dried it all up again...

Hugo was helping & performing at Circo Kernow's playfest in Truro.
Unfortunately, we missed his performance because we were working... But we got to spend a couple of hours lying in the sun & chatting with our friends - who were also working at the festival.

The Big Top

Helen's funky new business!

Her crumpets are vegan & absolutely delicious.
We forgot to take a photo, but we had Helen's homemade vegan wild rocket & walnut pesto on our crumpets - which was also amazingly good!


 We've had a tiring day today & will no doubt have another long day tomorrow.
We do have Sunday & Monday off though - hooray!!!

Anyway, we must get to bed...

Night, night.

Hope you all have a good weekend!

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 …
