Trevaskis Farm pumpkin patch 2018

Happy Halloween

I'm a sucker for seasonal traditions. We first took Jenson to the Trevaskis Farm pumpkin patch in 2016, then again last year, so of course we had to pop back before Halloween rolled around. I panicked at the start of last week because the farm had sold out of pumpkins and I really wanted to… Continue reading Happy Halloween

A few of my favourite things #59

I've decided to mix things up a bit on the blog this week.

Now that my hours have changed at work I've also decided to change my… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #59

I'm writing this post on Wednesday night because, as you read this, I'll be working in London for the day, having just spent the day in Brighton at a conference. Go me!

Friday Favourites #52

I feel incredibly fortunate that I've been able to have two particularly good weeks on the trot, with what seems to have become Jenson Fun Days on Thursdays while we're not swimming and an evening out. Lucky me! Mums' night out Last week I briefly mentioned that I'd gone out for some cocktails and food… Continue reading Friday Favourites #52

Awesome female artists currently exhibiting in Penzance

I used to think I wasn't that into art. Then I started to meet local designer-makers at Fairs and went along to a female-centric exhibition at a gallery last summer and realised that I am very much interested in the way that women tell stories through their art. I recently got in touch with Newlyn… Continue reading Awesome female artists currently exhibiting in Penzance

My gosh, this gorgeous weather just keeps on going, doesn't it?! Last weekend was the nicest Mazey weekend I've seen for a while and I even explored some of the festivities with Jenson.

The Edge of the World Bookshop, Penzance

This week combines two particularly awesome bookish campaigns: Feminist Book Fortnight and Independent Bookshop Week. I popped along to the award-winning Edge of the World Bookshop in Penzance to chat all things bookish with store co-owner Rachael Howorth. The store housed a display of feminist books before Feminist Book Fortnight even kicked off, such is… Continue reading The Edge of the World Bookshop, Penzance
