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!

Travel – Our Anniversary Break in Venice, Italy

It was our anniversary last week; and Stu and I decided a couple of months ago to book a break away. We found some cheap flights to Venice; and as it’s on our (rather long) list of places we’d like to go, we went for it.

Travel

Finding a nice but reasonably low budget hotel, as we never really spend any time there, other than sleeping. Aside from this, arranging transport and parking we didn’t spend much at all.

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

Things to Come – A Catch Up Post

This is a little bit of a catch up, and refresher post really, as I usually just share what I’m up to. I intend to keep doing so, though in the interest of readership, there are certain things that I felt were getting fairly repetitive, so after a little summer break, as I realised I’d gone a  year without any major time off from blogging, so I had a little break recently, and thought I’d take the opportunity for a bit of a catch up, and a refresh!

Logo, Craft Room and Beyond

I’ve tried in the past to find out what people wanted, though it’s a tough thing to get feedback for, (though as ever, feel free to get in touch in comments or on social media, if there are things you’d like to see more [or less] of!) as well as what I want, and taking into account working part time as well as having the blog.

What I’ve been doing:

Mostly working!! I know, it’s so exciting! I’ve been doing some knitting here and there, but I’ve mostly been chilling, not worrying about completing any projects, and enjoying the summer, days out, spending time relaxing… And watching almost half of the movies on the Movie Challenge list!

We’ve also watched a fair bit of “TV” (I don’t have terrestrial TV, everything I watch is streamed) so we caught up on Jessica Jones, The Boys, and watched Firefly again! We’ve been going to the cinema here and there, and of course car shows, and local events recently which you can find in my last couple of posts.

Coming Up:

  • Days out! (Of course, lots planned as usual!)
  • Crafting! I haven’t done as much lately as I’d like, but I will be sharing soon.
  • We’ve booked a holiday! So I shall be sharing that too, but in November, so there’s a while to go! (If anyone is interested in any content around this, such as packing, booking process, plans, tips etc for this or past holidays let me know.)
  • Events. A couple of things lined up, I am excited to share with you!
  • General content, I love sharing more generalised content, and plan on doing some more chilled posts, rounding up what we’ve been up to, or what is happening.
  • NEW weekly, what I’m working on short posts, I’m hoping this has the side effect of keeping me motivated to do more crafting too!

Social Media:

I’m loving sharing days out, and events, though as we often revisit the same places, I will only share a singular post, and just mention follow ups on the blog from now on, unless there’s something significant going on. If you’d like to know more about what I’m up to though, I have decided to be more active on Instagram in that sense, so do give me a follow, and I’ll endeavour to share more of what’s going on in stories and my feed, I want to treat is as a sort-of scaled down version of the blog, where I’ll share things I’m doing craft wise, and any days out or events as they happen!

I’m also still on Twitter, but that’s definitely where I’m most casual, while I share new posts, and goings on, it’s a lot more relaxed, and I love having a good chat! I also still host #CraftBlogClub on Tuesdays, which I really enjoy!

Thanks for bearing with me!! I’m hoping to be back to 2/3 posts a week from now on!

*Date Night* March 2019

March! It’s been a fairly quiet month again this month, mostly because we’ve been really  busy with work, though we have had a little down-time here and there, so here’s a bit of a catch up!

Date Night

We’ve not had any events in March, which means it’s been fairly quiet generally, we did enjoy a day out in St Ives (which you can read all about here)! That’s about the extent of our going out this month, the joy of how days off have come up recently, coupled with some rather hit-or-miss weather!

Traveller Notebooks – For a Blogging Journey

I am a self-confessed stationery addict. Needing to stay organised; I have notebooks all over the place; an essential for everyone, blogger, traveller or just those that are busy! But recently have been utterly lost because my handbag sized notebook ran out; and I hadn’t got round to buying one! I just couldn’t find one that suited what I needed…

It is used for a lot; mostly blog planning and social media, but considering I’m also running #CraftBlogClub, I note down chat plans too. And then there’s day-to-day to-do list stuff.

Chatting on #CraftBlogClub fairly recently Sarah was sharing her handmade Traveller Notebooks from her site: Adventure Accessories. Which are utterly beautiful –

Scrapbook Share – Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary 2017

Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary celebrations, was our second Disney holiday, and of course I planned to create a scrapbook of the trip, but it took me over a year to actually get it done!

Now the book is finished, I took some photos of my layouts and thought I’d share it here!

Scrapbook Share

If you’d like to see more of my travel scrapbooks, let me know. I have different books from a few different places, including Prague, our first Disney trip and Paris, and a few of different years of general scrapbooking, so leave me a comment if you enjoy this post and would like to see more!
