Have fun looking around 🙂

Padstow

A small fishing village in North Cornwall. I have been to Cornwall on holiday about 16 times and I always visit a town called Padstow while I’m there.

This is such a nice village, I would definitely recommend a visit whilst you’re on holiday in Cornwall. It’s one of those places that have a really strange mix of people. There are the rich posh people who are there for that fish restaurant run by that famous TV chef guy (typically can’t remember his name now); the middle/upper class families visiting, and a bunch of hippies plaiting people’s hair by the side of the harbour!

It also seems to be an unusual place to find the best clothes ever! If I didn’t want to go to Newquay because it was too crowded with chavvy tourists, I would choose Padstow to go shopping rather than Truro. Up the little narrow streets there are several shops full of cool surfy clothes, and if you go up a small hill bit there’s a group of four shops where there’s a couple of hippy shops too. There are also several of the kind of shops you expect of a seaside town that are for families on holiday that are full of souvinears and nick-nacks and surprisingly these are incredibly cheap. If you want to kit up with the full sea-side works – fishing nets, body boards, blow-up dolphins and rubber rings, and buckets and spades etc. this is the cheapest place in the whole of Cornwall I am sure!! We’ve often come away from Padstow with several bags. There’s also a gorgeous fudge shop which I must find the name of to tell you.

UK,

Visiting Bath Fashion Museum
October 21, 2016
The good thing about Blogtober is that I’m managing to fit in articles that I’ve had in mind to write for quite some time. This is about my visit to the Bath Fashion Museum, which although doesn’t feel like very long ago, was actually in April! It was during Bath Fashion Week and I wanted to make the most of my day-trip, and as I was going to a talk by Livia Firth in the same building, I thought I’d quite like to have a look round the new exhibition called A History of Fashion in 100 Objects….
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….
5 Ideas to do in October
October 15, 2016
1. Kick some leaves. Next time you’re on your way to work, walking the kids to school, or generally going about your day, and you spy a pile of leaves at the side of the pavement; kick it! Go on! Even if there are people about to see; scatter those leaves in the air! (Just make sure there are no small children nearby you might accidentally kick in the face. And make sure the foot not in the air has secure purchase on the ground – not on a wet slippery leaf. See? I struggle with letting go.)…..
