I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Carn Euny

A lovely Iron Age village in West Cornwall.

This is a great place to visit whether or not you’re interested in the British Iron Age period; and best of all it’s absolutely free! There is a donation box from English Heritage for upkeep of the site and car park, but I suppose they don’t have anyone working there all the time because it’s tucked away down a tiny country lane.

You can see the remains here of the stone walls of the ancient roundhouses in a small community, and an amazing fogou; underground chamber, that’s easy to get right inside of. It’s in a beautiful setting with views over the countryside, and much less people than at nearby Chysauster. We only saw one other family while we were there.

There are several information boards which help you work out which wall is part of which building and which lump is a grave etc. There are no toilets at the car park, but it’s only a five minute easy walk from there to the actual site. (If you have a pushchair, there is one style – but nothing 2 adults wouldn’t manage). It was August when we visited, but I gather the main path can get muddy and so can the fogou if you visit in winter.

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?…..
3 Days in Oxford – Day 3. The story of the photographs
November 9, 2016
We’ve now come to my last day in Oxford and after breakfast, I sadly checked out of the hotel and drove to the park and ride. I bussed into the city where I was dropped off near the bottom of St Aldates and began walking all the way up to a lovely clothes shop called Olivia May on Little Clarendon Street where it snowed heavily for about half an hour. Then on route to the Natural History Museum, the sun came out and it was so hot, I took my coat off (bloody British weather). Of course, I took lots of photos on the way……
