Jumbled Snapshot

Can't believe it's been nearly 2 months since our last post...
As always, we have been incredibly busy with work & caring for Bebe, so when the opportunity arises to have some fun - we grab it!
Here is a mishmash of photies from the last few weeks...
Ending a day trip to Exmoor with a ride on the Lynton/Lynmouth funicular cliff lift.

Rose's graduation at Plymouth University.
We attended Sal & Ryan's there 4 years ago & no doubt we'll be doing it all over again (though probably at a different university) in another 4 years with Hugo...

We are so proud of our beautiful buddy. 
Not because she now has an art degree, but because of her self motivation - it's not always been an easy journey... 
Going to college with strange kids after being home educated was very challenging for our shy girl, but she wanted to do it & we supported her all the way.
A few years ago, she completed a foundation degree in graphic design, she found a small course group & thrived - but was unsure about doing her final year... After a 2 year gap, she decided to go back to finish. She attended the same college with the same tutor & had a great time. She was also able to continue with her job, working around her course. 
Our little Rozzy Roo has blossomed...

And we were very happy to be there to share her day!

 Roger Taylor, the drummer from Queen received a honorary degree in music at the same time - which was quite surreal...
Rose & Asa after the ceremony.

The night before the graduation - we spent the evening with our lovely friends, Kath & Jim. 
They had been holidaying nearby, so we were able to see each other a few times. This was their last evening, so we went to our favourite eatery - Wildebeest in Falmouth.

The wonders of dandelion & burdock!

Some of you will know Kath from her blog: Hillside Cottage.

Fleaby looking big & fierce!

Hiding!

Idless Woods near Truro.

Fowey

We enjoyed a cuppa at Pinky Murphy's in Fowey.

Then a walk around Polruan.

An impulsive overnight trip to Bristol.
This is the Trinity Community Arts Centre...

Where we saw The Jim Jones Revue.

A fantastic night of incredibly loud, energetic music, which left our ears ringing for 3 days!!!

We bumped into the main guy, Jim Jones in the community gardens before the show.

The next morning, a catch up with Sal & Ryan.

We haven't seen them for 5 months, so it was lovely to see them both!

Coast path walk between Portloe & Carne Beach on the Roseland.


A beautiful warm October afternoon on Carne Beach.

Heading over the Tamar to Plymouth for an early morning ferry to Brittany...

With Hugo & Jess.

Reading glasses.

Walking over to the Isle of Callot from Carantec in Northern Brittany.

Hugo being Hugo.

Jess at Plougasnou market.

Herbs & spices...

Olives & dips.

Hugo & Jess in the organic wholefood shop.

Vegan pizza in Roscoff.

We had a lovely time with the youngest kidlets & a chance to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary.

Back at home - Bebe getting musical...

And enjoying a sing-song with our friend Vanessa.

Early morning at work in Mevagissey...


Not quite awake, but it was a beautiful morning...

The robin from the garden at work - he likes to be around us while we eat & had to be helped back outside... He was more than happy to be picked up & fussed.

A meal & catch up at Sam's On The Beach, with our friend Vanessa from Cheshire - who turned 40 this year... 
We have known Vanessa for over 18 years & usually meet up when she is in Cornwall with her parents - it is always a joy to see them all!

The Dolphins Fly won a competition to open a big festival in September, supporting UB40.
It was a great gig & splendid evening...  

We were so happy that our beautiful friends - Vanessa & Lou could join us too.
They left to start an adventure a few days later - which begins in Scotland. It was great that we managed to have some fun between their stress of selling & packing up. We helped out whenever we could & even though those last few days were hectic & emotional - we shared lots of fantastic laughs too... In fact, most of our get-togethers always end in hysterics, they share our absurd silly sense of humour & we've enjoyed so much fun together... From pie flinging to deliveries of fake pee - it's been a fab, fab time. Topped off with crying over our curry & champers in the garage. We hugged, kissed & shouted "see you later" as they were about to leave & we miss them lots. 
V&L are our friends for life & we don't doubt that we'll all probably end up doing something exciting together in the future.

Last week in Bristol.

Hope you enjoyed catching up with us!

Love 
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 …
