Sunshine, Lanterns & Lights

How time flies...
It's almost a week since we were here...

Perranporth Beach...
The Watering Hole is the UK's only bar properly on a beach & The Dolphins Fly have played there!
Perranporth is on the north coast of Cornwall & 25 miles away from where we live.
We had dropped Hugo off at the home ed group & fancied spending the day enjoying the sun.
When I heard that Perranporth beach is 3 miles long... I thought we should check it out!





We had the most perfect time & the beach is amazing...
Though we both agreed that neither of us would like it when it gets busy!

Then it was on to Truro...

This cafe has changed name so often that I can't remember it's name now...
It used to be veggie & now sells meat & fish! :(

But they did make a very nice vegan sweet potato, pumpkin & coconut soup.

Sal & Ryan met up with us, as did our friend Jane - she had been supervising the home ed group & the teens had all gone off together to watch the parade.

Very suddenly the crowd just grew...

It was such a mild, dry evening - it seemed like the whole population of Cornwall had headed to Truro!

The lanterns were amazing...

And the Christmas lights were switched on! 

A steel band played...

And the pretty lights twinkled!

                                          
Sime's video...

While at Perranporth, we saw something we've never seen before being used by several people on the beach.
We thought we'd find some in the town & we were right!
No doubt, you all know what it is & it's probably just us - we don't get out enough...

I think Emperor's new clothes springs to mind, but does anyone know what they are called?

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…

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 …
