St Michael’s Mount: A fun family day out (review + giveaway)

My week of blog birthday giveaways continues with a fun family day out in Marazion. One of the most iconic places in Cornwall, if not the most iconic place, is St Michael's Mount, and it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I finally wandered around the castle itself. We were invited back as… Continue reading St Michael’s Mount: A fun family day out (review + giveaway)

Self-care Sunday #21

This week's self-care tip is to take the scenic route. We're always in a hurry to get somewhere and forget to just take some time and be in the moment. At the weekend I often like to walk out to the supermarkets with Jenson rather than get the bus out and back quickly. I had… Continue reading Self-care Sunday #21

A round-up of Cornish favourites

I'm using this post as a referencing point for anyone looking for my Cornwall posts. I'll be adding to it as we visit new places. Got some tips? Leave a comment. This summer I want to get out and about a lot more in Cornwall. It was difficult last year with a newborn and this… Continue reading A round-up of Cornish favourites

Friday Favourites #8

Happy weekend y'all! Me and Luke have our family weekends Thursday-Friday because of our work schedules, so it feels like mine is coming to an end as yours is a beginning but, as last weekend proved, that doesn't mean you can't still have fun (see point three below). Here's what I've loved in the last… Continue reading Friday Favourites #8

My life in photos: May 2016

I'm making more of a conscious effort to take photos every day - and not just of Jenson! You may have spotted most of these snaps on Instagram over the last month and I like sharing them in an end of month round-up - even though it's been June for a week now. Crazy, right?… Continue reading My life in photos: May 2016

My life in photos: March 2016

We're already a week into April - seriously, where has the time gone? I've been back at work for over two months and Jenson's first birthday is less than two months away. Woah. March flew by in a whirlwind of yet more coffee and cake, plus Easter goodies and sunny walks. Take a peek at… Continue reading My life in photos: March 2016

Exploring Cornwall: St Michael’s Mount and lunch at the Chapel Rock Cafe

We did it! We finally went up to the castle! It only took me 26 and a half years of living in Cornwall to do it but I've finally ticked that box - and crossed another item off the summer bucket list. We got the bus to Long Rock and walked over to Marazion. The… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: St Michael’s Mount and lunch at the Chapel Rock Cafe

Mazey Madness Part 2: Quay Day and dinner at The Godolphin Arms

Yesterday I shared the delights of the most festive day in Penzance but for those who can't stand having to wait around for half an hour to cross the road during a parade, Quay Day is where it's at. It basically opens up the bottom end of town for the day, right the way along… Continue reading Mazey Madness Part 2: Quay Day and dinner at The Godolphin Arms
