Paulos Circus 2021 – Back to the Big Top*

We were delighted to see that Paulos Circus, and the big top tend were heading back to Cornwall in summer 2021! Of course we have been lucky enough to enjoy the last two shows, though I was afraid we would miss it, as we have had family visiting last week! As it happens, I was offered free tickets* to see the show with our guests too! Making it an extra special experience, as some of our party had never been to the circus before!

The tickets were gifted* in return for an honest review, all opinions are my own.

The Seal Sanctuary – Saving Sealife in Cornwall

Located in Gweek, Cornwall, not far from Helston; the Seal Sanctuary, part of the Sea Life Trust charity; is a great day out for all the family. With nature walks, farm animals, penguins sea lions and of course seals. Recently the Secret Creek, home to three totally cute beavers. Located in a pretty coastal valley, and open year round, there is plenty to see on repeat visits.

A day out to...

We have visited at different times of year before; and can definitely attest to there being lots to see, at different times of year rain or shine.

Bujo – August 2021 Setup [AF]

I feel like after 7 months, I should stop saying I’ve never attempted bullet journaling before. It’s something in the last several months, I have grown to love; use and find good in; in so many ways. It helps me get organised; record and track things; and there’s something nice about spending a little time whether weekly or daily looking through, and filling in certain parts. In this post I’ll be sharing my August 2021 setup.

Bujo Share

I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island; I actually got a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen.

Summer Nights – Paulo’s Drive in Circus *

This is a sponsored post, I was gifted tickets to Paulo’s Drive in Circus, in return for an honest review.

When I heard Paulo’s Circus was headed back to Cornwall, I was immediately excited!

With all that’s happening recently, this is just the thing to liven up the summer! When I was invited along; to review the show on opening night, I definitely wasn’t going to say no!

So we hopped in the car, and headed to the Drive In!

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 Night at the Circus *

When the opportunity arose to attend Paulos Circus’ latest show, and share our experience on the blog, Stu and I jumped at the chance. We decided to stay away from social media searches, and so we had no idea what to expect, we were excited! We weren’t to be disappointed!

Paulos Circus Big Top!

I can’t remember the last time I went to the circus, long enough that times have changed and the presence of animals is thankfully no longer a thing. Looking forward to acrobatics, fun and more… But what would we get?

This is a sponsored post; I was gifted tickets to Paulo’s Circus in return for an honest review.

A Day Out To Find The Lost Gardens of Heligan

At the beginning of this month; we visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan; as it’s a nice place to have a wander around in nature!

A day out to...

Located just outside of Mevagissey; Heligan’s gardens were once truly lost; and over the last 25 years or so have been uncovered and carefully restored; and finished into a great place to visit for all the family!
