Self-Care Sunday #5

Thursdays are normally a rush. I've just finished my working week (#sorrynotsorry) so I'm super-tired as it is and I generally have just under an hour to get Jenson ready for swimming.

Exploring Cornwall: The Front Room, Penzance

Everyone has a go-to coffee place. Mine isn't Starbucks, Costa or Cafe Nero, it's The Front Room in Penzance. It's a genuinely warm and welcoming cafe, which serves brunch all day and always has a great selection of cakes. The customer service is great, with someone there to say hi when you walk through the… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The Front Room, Penzance
