Disco In Kernow

Our lovely friend, Simon turned 50 recently & had a great party in Chyan's apple barn at the weekend.

Simon in his fabulous outfit!

We first met Simon, his wife Jane & their eldest daughter, 10 years ago at Newquay Zoo on a home education trip. 
Over the years our families have become really good friends, though we don't see each other as often as we'd like these days - when we do get-together it's always nice & lots of fun!
They are wonderful people & have been there for us on so many occasions (even though they live over 40 miles away). Coming over & cooking meals, helping us with nan when she was alive, picking the kids up or dropping them off, taking care of Hugo while we go away, giving us hugs when we've needed them & much much more.

So it was lovely to catch up again this weekend.

The kidlets love S, J & their girls too & they all really got into the spirit of things...

Sal as Velma from Scooby Doo...

Ryan as Shaggy...

Rose as Daphne...

And Asa as a dark haired Fred.

Hugo went for a more Beatnik look...

 
My look was a bit predictable really...

As was Sime's - He was excited to find his old round glasses...
Seen here with Jane, who looked gorgeously Audrey Hepburn like in her false eyelashes!

The night was great fun!

A corner of the room was set out like a 70s sitting room...
Complete with 3 ducks & an old fashioned standard lamp on the wall!
Helen's hat is an original!

Jane & I (I'm behind the girl with the hood) pretty much danced all night until at least 4am...
Can't remember the last time I did that, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
It was a very cold night, so dancing was a good way of keeping warm, then those of us hardcore enough - crashed out in the barn after.
 We finally got our heads down at about 5.30am... To be woken at 9am by a team of clearer uppers!

Brekkie was being provided by Truly Crumptious. Not just crumpets, but wonderful hangover cures of great fry-ups - we had a vegan version, which really hit the spot!

The Birthday Boy in his civvies.

In the brekkie queue - feeling a little delicate!

We are still tired today, even though we were in bed at 8.30pm last night.

Think we're getting old...

Hope you've all had a good weekend too!

Kay :)

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…
