What I’ve been reading lately #11

As of Wednesday, I've finished 62 books so far this year. My Goodreads target was 50, so I reckon that's pretty good going, even though some of them have been on the short side. With four working weeks left of the year, I reckon I can tick off a few more yet. Here are some… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #11

A few of my favourite things #60

Things are finally starting to slow down a tad in my day job and I've been able to appreciate the little things a bit more, such as blackberry picking, baking, bath bombs and all of the books (and a bit of cheeky alliteration).

Jenson: 28 months old

Man, it has been a big month! Yep, we're a few weeks into nursery now. I had hoped that Jenson may have been settled in by now, working his way towards two four-hour sessions a week, but we soon realised that this transition is going to take some time. We have a routine which seems… Continue reading Jenson: 28 months old

Autumn is coming

It's getting darker earlier, I've switched to jumpers and boots and there's a definite nip in the air. It's almost the time of pumpkins, bonfires and Christmas shopping, so I've been thinking about what I want to do with Jenson before we welcome the festive season: 1. Do another pumpkin patch photo shoot (here's last… Continue reading Autumn is coming

My life in photos: October 2016

We're well into autumn now and winter is most definitely coming. Time for hot chocolate, leafy walks and more family fun. Here's a little look at what we got up to last month. 1. What blogger/Instagrammer doesn't love a good winter shoes/autumn leaves combo photo? 2. I won a Zebra pens competition! A girl can… Continue reading My life in photos: October 2016

Exploring Cornwall: Trevaskis Farm

I've blogged and Instagrammed my Trevaskis Farm visits before but it's mainly been food porn and the odd animal. Today the farm is getting its own blog post because I recently had one of my best days with Jenson ever - and I know we'll have plenty more awesome family days out there. The best… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Trevaskis Farm
