Exploring Cornwall: The best fish and chips!

I love The Mexico Inn. It's no longer my local so I relish any opportunity to go back. When The Range opened a few weeks ago I made sure to pop up to check it out on a Tuesday so that I had the perfect excuse to go over the road and introduce my mum… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The best fish and chips!

Self-Care Sunday #14

This is a face I've seen a lot of this week. I know I've mentioned sleep in my self-care tips before but in a week where I've been busy at work and had a not particularly well child on my hands while I've been at home, sleep has been key. I've left the dishes til… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #14

The Sun Is Also A Star, family time and Cornish weather #LittleLoves

I almost skipped Little Loves this week because when I came to draft the post I thought it wasn't very exciting. Then I remembered that blogging isn't just about the good times; life can be mundane at times and we shouldn't feel the need to hide it or embellish. So here's my rather average week!… Continue reading The Sun Is Also A Star, family time and Cornish weather #LittleLoves

Exploring Cornwall: Newquay Zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium

If you're looking for a fun family day out in Cornwall you can't beat Newquay. Traditionally playground of surfers and twenty-something clubbers, Newquay is also great for animal-loving families. During the last Bank Holiday weekend Luke's parents took us out for the day. We could go pretty much anywhere and I thought Jenson would love… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Newquay Zoo and Blue Reef Aquarium

Self-Care Sunday #13

Wow, it's been a busy week. I've done the equivalent of an extra working day from home this week, taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, gymnastics and the park, plus lunch with the family and general mum/housework duties, so there's not been a helluva lot of time for me/self-care. Fortunately, I started a gratitude journal… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #13

The Booby Trap, 13 Reasons Why and a new planner #LittleLoves

Man, it's been a long week. I'm always super-tired on Thursdays (when I come to schedule these posts) because I've just finished my working week and taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, which I swear is more tiring for me than it is for him. I've done some over-time this week and we also ran… Continue reading The Booby Trap, 13 Reasons Why and a new planner #LittleLoves

Exploring Cornwall: Dolly’s Tea Room & Wine Bar

Recently I went to Dolly's Tea Room & Wine Bar in Falmouth for my friend's hen do. The venue was so beautiful and the food so tasty that I just had to photograph everything and post a review. If you like a traditional afternoon tea, gin served in teapots and labradors wearing pearls, this is… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Dolly’s Tea Room & Wine Bar
