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.

3 days in new york – Day 1. The story of the photographs
February 10, 2017
Oh dear, I had trouble narrowing down the number of photos of New York to include to make it a reasonable length blog post! We did a hell of a lot each day, so I had to include enough to illustrate that, and I managed to get it down to fifteen photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed preparing. By the way, I should explain that this is the first post about the epic holiday our family went on last July. (I’ve had so many blog post ideas that it’s taken me this long to get to it!) I’ve decided that pictures speak a thousand words, so these are mainly going to be photography based travel blog posts, rather than tonnes of information provided. However, if you’d like more information about anything I mention, please just ask in the comments – I’ve got a box full of leaflets and tickets and a detailed diary to refer to.

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….
