Looking for theatre reviews, reading recommendations and Cornish favourites? You've come to the right place. Here's a selection of blog posts I've loved reading over the last week. Since Hannah Gale's post on the future of blogging, it's been a hot a topic and I took a lot from Cat's post on giving up our… Continue reading Saturday Share #138

Thor Ragnarok, Hashtag Authentic and a literary bucket list #LittleLoves

Well how the devil are you? We've certainly been making the most of the nicer weather and have popped down to the park most days. We still need the ol' puddle suit, proved by the fact that the one time we thought we could do without it, Jenson fell ass-first into a massive puddle. I… Continue reading Thor Ragnarok, Hashtag Authentic and a literary bucket list #LittleLoves

Book review: 100 Books That Changed the World

It feels kinda meta, reviewing a book about books, but, as a bookworm, I can't resist this kind of non-fiction. 100 Books that Changed the World taught me a lot and inspired me to try some previously unheard of titles. 100 Books that Changed the World is an exceptional collection of groundbreaking works that have… Continue reading Book review: 100 Books That Changed the World

My life in photos: March 2018

I know I say this every month but how is it April already? The first quarter of the year is gone but it still feels like it was just Christmas. And this time next month I'll be planning Jenson's third birthday. Wowzers! Rather than looking forward, I'm just going to take a moment to reflect… Continue reading My life in photos: March 2018

March gratitude (Self-Care Sunday #49)

And just like that, the first quarter of the year is done. The fuck? I have to admit, I didn't love my Happy Journal as much this month. There's a different theme for each month and the theme for March was choice and choosing to be happy. A lot of the prompts were also about… Continue reading March gratitude (Self-Care Sunday #49)

Stationery Matters, Ready Player One and lots of painting #LittleLoves

Well this week has certainly been better than the last week or two. I'm a lot more mobile and sometimes I even forget to take painkillers - go me! I've got a follow-up with the surgeon on Tuesday and hopefully he'll be pleased. It's meant I've been stuck at home a bit less and have… Continue reading Stationery Matters, Ready Player One and lots of painting #LittleLoves

A Tu clothing wish list (Spring 2018)

I don't know where we'd be without Sainsbury's 25% off Tu clothing weeks. Since before Jenson was born we've used these opportunities to stock up on next size clothing and this week is no different. With the summer fast-approaching (although it's easy to think otherwise with all these bleddy snow storms!), there are some essentials… Continue reading A Tu clothing wish list (Spring 2018)

How I fell for Instagram all over again

Instagram has become one of those sore topics. People are pissed at the demise of the chronological feed and constant changes to the algorithm, plus there's the disdain for comment/follow pods, follow-unfollowers, and don't even get me started on people who buy followers. It's easy to get into the habit of bitching and moaning and… Continue reading How I fell for Instagram all over again
