Ending the weekend on a Cocktail high.

Great weekends are made up of furniture buying exploration in our beautiful home county, discovering new beaches, eating good food and rounding it all off with cocktails in the garden. 》A disclaimer here, there was also much arguing too, the girls have been in quite a funk the last few days and my patience wore…

Out and About – Falmouth and Penryn.

I’ve had the loveliest 2 days, spending some quality time with close friends, away from the house, the children, it’s felt like a mini holiday, which can only be a good thing. Today I met up with my lovely friend Kirsty and we headed to Falmouth for a few hours. I took a fair few…

The first Creative Lunch.

Last week’s first Instagram Creative Workshop was so much fun and I can’t wait for the my next group on Tuesday. I thought I’d share some quick snaps I took, to give you a small insight into the session. I’ve also included a ground floor video House Tour, as the house was so tidy the…

Small Space Garden Ideas – Table Top Edible Bowl.

It’s no secret that I’m in love with my garden, those that follow me on Instagram and watch my stories will have seen that it features heavily in our daily life. This said, it’s a relatively recent love affair, which intensified when we spent some time last year having a bit of an overhaul. You…

Tipping the balance.

Being self employed is a funny one, in theory it sounds great doesn’t it, the freedom to define your own working terms, be your own boss, flexible working hours, you choose where, who, why. Following your own creativity, fitting around the daily flow of family life, just perfect. For me it has happened by accident,…

Leisurely lunching and all things nice.

Increasingly I am realising how much healthier my relationship with my husband is when we get out of the house, explore a little and talk about things aside from the kids and how they’re driving us crazy or what’s on the diy to-do list. Stu can’t sit idle for long, if we’re at home he…

Shop, shops, shopping.

Last week I wrote about the little break Stu and I had in Bristol and at the Westbrook Court B&B in Hereford…a much needed, child free few days to invest some time in us, to relax and recuperate. During our travels I got to visit some absolutely wonderful independent shops and cafes, some of which…

Time for me and him.

Last week Stu and I managed to escape for a much needed child free break. Let me just repeat that last bit, CHILD FREE!! To add further emphasis to this detail, you should know the two of us haven’t been away, just us, since before Nancy, our eldest, showed up nearly 7 years ago. Big…

Botelet Breakfast Club (and unofficial Appreciation Society).

Yesterday morning Nancy and myself started the new week in just about the best way possible, the way all weeks should start… Botelet Breakfast Club. Take two of my favourite Bs, Breakfast and Botelet, combine them with sunshine and good company and that’s a pretty special Monday morning. A once weekly pop-up breakfast cafe… take…

Living Room Update – From almost finished to totally undone.

I had hoped to be sharing the finished living room with you by now, that was the plan anyway. Before Christmas I painted the walls with two coats of Valspar Mountain Midnight, a dark green (that frustratingly photographs blue) It was a big step out of my white comfort zone, as well as a huge…

Easter Party.

We’re off up to Wales tomorrow morning, to visit family and join in with my cousin’s birthday celebrations. This means we’re away on Easter Sunday and Nancy was a little concerned that the Easter Bunny wouldn’t know our temporary address, she’s even written to him, explaining the situation! I’ve reasured her that that’s one clever…
