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…

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…

Alice in Scandiland Shop.

A week ago I opened my Instagram shop, a place for me to sell my preloved, vintagey and contemporary bits and bobs, some from the around the house, some that I find when I’m out and about. I thought I’d talk a little more about it here today. I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t…

Outlaw 2017, sharing creative spirit.

Before the summer I was asked if I would like to come along to the November Outlaw Market and run a workshop of some description, the idea excited me and I eagerly agreed, but then realised prepping for it would clash with other commitments, so I had to pull out. However, I could spare the time to…

London, Part 2: Out and About.

I managed to squeeze more than I expected into my short trip to London, this included some mooching around the shops, in particular the beauties that Stoke Newington had to offer, and boy what a treat they were. The day of the Amara Awards we decided to explore the local area, to slow things down a bit…
