Beach Cook Out at Holywell Bay

  Nothing beats an evening at the beach in Summer. We have had quite a few over recent weeks but last night was all the more special as we decided to try out Tony’s new Kelly Kettle set by having a beach BBQ with some friends that are visiting and their children. You can burn […]

My Little Mermaid

For as long as I can remember, Eva has told me that she is a mermaid, an actual mermaid. When she is left alone in the bath, shower, sea or swimming pool she apparently grows a big scaly tail and is a proper mermaid, not a pretend one, a genuine half-fish girl with a shell […]

An Afternoon in Beautiful St. Agnes

When we were house-hunting for our dry-run on moving to Cornwall (two years ago when we didn’t actually move) I had it in my head that we were moving to St. Agnes. As you probably know we did eventually move to Cornwall but not to St. Agnes, although we’re not too far away so today […]

A new life in Cornwall means new hobbies!

The weather, coastline and general feel of Cornwall has changed a lot in the last few weeks. It went rather bleak for what felt like days on end in March. But April has arrived with a blaze of suns and amazing big blue skies. We have been out exploring almost every day and I’ve even […]

Instagram #marchmeetthemaker challenge

First Family Festival

Hooray!! We survived our first family festival! We only went as day trippers so it doesn’t really count – but we would have camped if it was an option. In a passed life I was regular ‘Festival-er’ but since setting up a business, getting married and becoming a mum it all kind of went on […]

Family time in France

After our recent disaster of a holiday you might think I would be more than hesitant about boarding another plane less than two weeks later. But that’s exactly what we did. From the age of three I spent every Summer in France. I have fantastic memories of those long hot summers; eating boiled pigs trotters […]

Dream holiday / total nightmare

After hours (and hours) of deliberation, contemplating locations, flight combinations and resorts. Calculating every last penny to get the very best deal for our hard-earned cash. Planning a holiday can be stressful business, there are seemingly infinite choices to consider and now we have a child’s wants and needs thrown into the pot, along with […]

June 2016 playlist

Here’s my bumper playlist for June. We’ve had a few long car journeys over the last few weekends, two to North Yorkshire and one to Cleethorpes so this playlist is 50 tracks of car driving joy, you may prefer it on shuffle!
