Storytime at The Craft Box

I've blogged before about how much I love The Craft Box in Penzance (there's also one in Helston) but it needs another shout out thanks to recent additions. It's fun for all the family, a great place to make a personal gift and there's always tasty treats. Recently owner April has added a cute play… Continue reading Storytime at The Craft Box

My life in photos: February 2017

Seriously, how is it already March? It feels like it was just Christmas! But at least it means spring is on the way - plenty of opportunities for fun days in the park and on the beach with the boys. Here's a look back at a cold and stormy February. 1. Presents from Dom (check… Continue reading My life in photos: February 2017

Friday Favourites #34

I make a note of things I want to include in my Friday Favourites post throughout the week and for the first time in a while I came up with way more than five. Some weren't especially time-sensitive, so I've carried them over to next week's post, but it's nice to have some many little… Continue reading Friday Favourites #34

My round up of blogosphere faves this week includes girl bossing, blog admin, a Cornish bucket list and all of the chocolate recipes! Every time someone mentions Girlboss I'm more tempted to read it. Must add it to the list. I'm thinking about creating a newsletter when I rebrand/relaunch in a couple of months so… Continue reading Saturday Share #85

Friday Favourites #33

This week has very much been about appreciating the little things. With the weather too cold and meh to go out and do anything fun, we've spent a lot of time watching (and re-watching) Frozen. Here's this week's highlights. 1. Jenson being cute AF. I know I think he's super cute 99.9% of the time… Continue reading Friday Favourites #33

This week I've LOLed at awesome posts on Cornish life and politics, drooled over mug cakes and swooned over travel photo diaries. Gotta love the blogosphere! I love reading book reviews from people who have just read one of my favourite books for the first time. Anastasia is no longer a Jane Austen virgin! I've… Continue reading Saturday Share #84

My life in photos: January 2017

We made it! We survived the most depressing month of the year. I might not have done too well on the old resolutions (does one bath cut short by a screaming baby count as self-care?) but there's still 11 months to go. Here's a look at my month in photos. 1. I was gutted when… Continue reading My life in photos: January 2017

Exploring Cornwall: Afternoon tea at the St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa

It was my mum's birthday last week and I treated her to afternoon tea at the St Ives Harbour Hotel and Spa. It was lovely to spend some time relaxing on our own. In fact, it was only when I was sat in the restaurant gazing out to sea that I realised it was the… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Afternoon tea at the St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa

Friday Favourites #31

I'm sitting down to write this post at 9.30pm on Thursday* and it's the first time I've lifted the lid on my laptop all week (thank you, scheduled posts!) and, as of two hours ago, this is the first bit of time I've had to myself this week. Jenson has had a cold and hasn't… Continue reading Friday Favourites #31

The blogosphere never fails to inspire me, week after week. This week I've loved posts on non-fiction books, Cornish businesses, improving your handwriting and responses to that questions parents of only children are tired of hearing. Enjoy! After being inspired by Tink's post on self-help books, I think I want to read more non-fiction this… Continue reading Saturday Share #82
