Autumn Fruit Picking – Blogtober 2020

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

It’s been a while since either of us have been fruit picking, but we thought, why not! A nice excuse for some fresh air, and exercise, and a bit of fun!

My Autumn Bucket List – Blogtober 2020

Autumn is my favourite season, and it seemed only right, to share my autumn bucket list here on the blog, to show what I have planned for the next month or so!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

I don’t have much planned generally for October, but there are a few things I would like to do! So I created a bucket list at the beginning of the month, knowing ahead of time, it was one of the prompts for Instagram…

Autumn Favourites Tag – Blogtober 2020

Before I get to my Autumn favourites, I thought I’d explain a little….

I thought I would do something a little different this month, and try Blogtober, now technically that means 31 days of posts, but posting every day, and working is a little much for me.

I will be posting every day on Instagram, but here on the blog there will be more content, and some extra fun things throughout the month, from crafts and decor ideas, to getting out and about and enjoying more of Autumn!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

So as a bit of an introduction to the season, I thought I’d share some of my favourites…

National Trust in Cornwall – TBT Look Back

We’ve visited many of the National Trust sites in Cornwall, and I thought I was long overdue for a post sharing them all in a comprehensive list! So here’s a Throwback Thursday look back at some of the places we’ve been!

Throwback Thursday

Here is a list of all the sites that can be found in Cornwall, with links to my posts if I’ve visited. I will update with any more links when I get to them!

A Day Out To – Newquay Zoo

Now that restrictions have eased a little; I’m so glad to be able to start going out again, and this week we visited Newquay Zoo!

Of course the lockdown has had a huge impact on many businesses and so we wanted to try and support some local places by paying them a visit. There are of course many places to donate too, which is really amazing; and a great way to support the places you love if you can spare a little to help any of those struggling.

A day out to...

Newquay Zoo, is actually one of the first places I visited when I moved to Cornwall almost ten years ago; and we’ve been a few times since; because it’s great for a wander, and of course who doesn’t like seeing lots of cute animals!

A Day Out To – Lanhydrock Gardens

I’m so glad we’re getting back to going out once or twice a month again; we’ve visited Trelissick already, and now it’s time for Lanhydrock Gardens. It’s a little more complicated with booking in advance, so a there’s not as much chance to be impulsive.

You can find out more about booking visiting times for the National Trust here.

But with the amazing weather we’re having at the moment; it’s so nice to get out, and enjoy some of our favourite places in the sunshine!

A day out to...

Of course the National Trust houses aren’t open yet; which is understandable, but it’s a rare treat to be able to get out and enjoy Lanhydrock’s beautiful gardens; which, if you’re eagle eyed when it comes to past posts, our visits usually get a bit rainy! (This is purely coincidental! We just have bad luck visiting when it comes to the weather!) The gardens are beautiful, and there is so much to see.

A Day Out To – Trelissick Gardens

Finally we are able to get out and about again! So we’re heading not too far from home this week, to one of our favourite nearby National Trust sites, Trelissick Gardens.

A day out to...

Now I’m back to work facing the general public again, so, it meant we’ve decided to make the occasional booking for a day out again. At least here, a few places are open, in some capacity, with timed arrivals spots available for booking around a day or two in advance.

Of course this is a difficult time, but we really enjoy our wanders around local National Trust properties and gardens, and have missed them so much over the lockdown, so for our first wander (aside from the local park) we booked to visit Trelissick.

This Week #1 – Starting the Year, Handmade Gifts, National Trust Trelissick, and Sale Shopping

We’re 10 days in to January, and it’s been pretty quiet! I’ve been working a lot so there’s not been much going on so far! The weather’s been pretty terrible too, so it doesn’t exactly make you want to go and spend time outside!

These posts will be a bit of a mix of places we go, cinema trips, anything interesting happening, as well as any short mentions that don’t really warrant a full post, I’ll also use Fridays as a way of sharing any online challenges and updates on the big 35 before 35 challenge!

A Day Out to The British Motor Museum

This post has not been sponsored in any way, all opinions are my own

The British Motor Museum is a brilliant and unique car museum, located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off J12 of the M40. Stu and I had discussed going for a while now, and as we were recently in Leicester, we were in the perfect position to visit as we headed home to Cornwall. Of course we’re not a stranger to automotive museums, though Stu hadn’t visited BMM for years and it was a first time visit for me.IMG_1427
