Castle-an-dinas

An Iron Age hillfort near St Columb Major, Cornwall.

I’m back from my holiday!! I had a great two weeks travelling accross the south of England; going from Kent; all the way to Cornwall, and then taking just over a week coming back again. So I had plenty of opportunites for more reviews! Much of the holiday was spent researching the Iron Age, so if you’re interested in that period of history, then stick around on this website.

I’ve also started a new section under Reviews, for things to and places to visit; I’ll be moving some of my old reviews that will fit into that catagory over the next few days. For now, it starts off with my visit to Castle-an-dinas, a hillfort in Cornwall.

This one has pretty easy access as it’s only a short walk from the car park – but beware – you don’t want to go looking for it in a cool lowered vehicle – you won’t make it up the track! Another warning: sheep’s poo is everywhere – do not attempt to wear flip-flops.

You can see for miles, but unfortuntely the view is no where near as nice as it was years ago, as all around there are factories and quarry buildings. We stayed around to watch the sun set over the sea, and it’s a lovely place to go for peace and quiet. It was also fun watching a group of young goats playing near us.

An information board said a bit about the iron age structure and the wildlife.

3 Days in Oxford – Day 2. The story of the photographs
October 12, 2016
If you haven’t yet seen Day 1, then you might like to follow this link and come back here later. The morning of my second day in Oxford was mainly spent walking from the Four Pillars Hotel in Sandford-on-Thames along the Thames path into Oxford. I’ve already written a detailed blog with photos about the journey in this post, so I’ll begin here where I left off, entering the city by Christchurch College. I sort-of meandered my way through cobbled streets and past various ancient University buildings until I came out at a place I remembered….
Mumsnet Blogfest review – an account of a nervous first-timer
November 16, 2016
I would have been altogether a lot less nervous about my first blogging event had I not signed up for Dragons’ Pen. They called it a Dragons’ Den style opportunity to pitch your book to an editor, and as places filled up extremely quickly, I was lucky to spot the e-mail in time to get a place with Sam Eades, senior commissioning editor of Trapeze, a new Orion imprint. I’ll be honest, I would have been a lot happier and relaxed that day if I hadn’t booked a place, but I’d also be kicking myself forevermore if I didn’t take a (very very) deep breath and go for it. I’d also for the rest of my life be wondering if I’d missed my chance to wow an editor in person. Would she snap up my work the second she heard it? Would she whip out a three book deal contract for me to sign?…..
