A Day Out to – Pendennis Castle

To take advantage of a nice, sunny day off; we decided to head out for the day, to visit Pendennis Castle. An English Heritage site, not too far from Falmouth.

A day out to...

Pendennis is a fun day out, with lots of sunny open space, great views, and lots to explore! From Tudor history, to “modern” wartime history. You can find more information on the English Heritage website, including prices and opening times.

Keepsakes and Mementos – A-Z Challenge 2021

It’s no secret that the craft room is a treasure trove of not only craft supplies; but many keepsakes and mementos. Whether it’s my collection of scrapbooks, handmade items or more random things!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

National Trust in Cornwall – TBT Look Back

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.


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

The British Motor Museum is a brilliant and unique car museum; located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off J12 of the M40. Stu and I have 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.

A day out to...

Of course we’re not a stranger to automotive museums; though Stu hadn’t visited for years and it was a first time visit for me.

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!

We’re Off On A UK Mini Break!

It’s Travel announcement time! We’re off on a little UK mini break to Somerset! We try to get away a couple of times a year; just to blow away the cobwebs and explore somewhere new!

We’ve been to Somerset a few times, though we’re trying to head to new places, so it’s still an adventure!


We are headed to Somerset, mostly because it’s not too far away from Cornwall; but far enough that it feels like a real break! Our plan is to find a nice B&B; and just head out to enjoy the surrounding area for a couple of days!

*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 graphic

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!
