As we were driving along the track just outside of a little village called La Houssaye I spotted our enchanted gîte through the trees, we were immediately wowed by its natural charm. As we got nearer we could see more of it’s character and couldn’t wait to get inside.
For our sixth wedding anniversary using A for adventure Mr P planned to take me to the RNLI’s Lifeboat College in Poole, Dorset. He resides here frequently when carrying out training courses, which is very important as he’s part of our local lifeboat crew in Cornwall. I’d heard lots of stories about this place and Mr P always returns from a training course completely energised.
With Easter just around the corner I do feel as though I am missing out slightly this year, this is my first sugar free Easter, no lovely chocolate egg for me…
This got me thinking, if I could choose any egg that I wanted what would it be? Easily pleased I would just choose a packet of revels, I love the assortment of yummy chocolates and the surprise element of not knowing what you are getting!! So just because I’m sugar free why should I miss out. So I made my own variation of sugar free revels to enjoy over Easter.
Living in Cornwall is fantastic, however it does take a bit of time to get any where for a holiday. This
is why we are huge fans of the Plymouth to Roscoff ferry. It’s a brilliant means of travel for us as we can sleep over night and wake up in a different country. On numerous occasions we have taken our caravan and had the opportunity to tour around different areas, which has been enjoyable.
So Spring seems to have sprung this weekend and long may it continue. I’m aware that it’s not officially Spring until 20th March. However when the sun comes out I’m ready to declutter and start sorting out the mess in my cupboards. I find this so therapeutic, clearing out the clutter leaving space and energy for new items to come. It’s a feeling of letting go of something in order to bring something new to me, which feels up lifting. Each year when decluttering, I often manage to get rid of at least 5 bin bags of things, ranging from old clothes, clothes I think I’m going to fit into again one day……. But if I did lose the weight I would prefer to treat myself to something new, another letting go!! I clear out my socks, undies, old bras, candles, blankets, towels, coats, scarfs and bags. I make sure I go through every cupboard.
I’m all about healthy eating but don’t want to spend a lot of time or money on making nutrious food. Whilst making a few changes to my diet I also decided to eliminate pasta. This was not for any particular health reason, I just wanted to eat more vegetables. I try to trick my brain a little, if I give something up I need a replacement for it. What could I use to make vegetable pasta? I saw this little Julienne Peeler in a magazine and thought I would give it a try.
I stumbled across The Lookout when I was strolling through Falmouth looking for a place to have an appetising breakfast. The breakfast in here is amazing, they have a great selection ranging from granola with yogurt, muffins, toast and eggs, sausage or bacon sandwiches, great for everyone, adults, children and vegetarians.
On Thursday evening I decided to give community acupuncture a go, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Arriving at Ponsanooth Hall, I manage to park in their free car park and noticed a sign with an arrow stating community acupuncture. I followed the sign and found another with an arrow pointing up some stairs. At the top of the stairs I opened the door and walked into a bright airy spacious room, the first thing I heard was some beautiful smoothing music and a saw a friendly American lady, I felt at ease straight away. The American lady whispered instructions to pull 2 chairs towards me, I sat on one and rested my feet on the other. The lady (Jill) gave me a swab to wipe both my ears before she began placing 5 needles in each. My right ear felt fine but my left was a little more tender, making it feel slightly tingly. Once the needles were in place I made myself comfortable and began to relax, I could feel the worries of the day just melting from my body as I became heavier and heavier (think I actually I fell asleep).
