A Week in Cornwall in November

I have a huge case of the post-holiday blues – oh, to be beside the seaside. So I’ve spent a bit of time trawling through the hundreds of photos I took while we were in Cornwall last week and have picked out some of my favourites. Even though it rained, a few times, we had a lovely time. As it was out of season, we could take Poppy on all the beaches, which was ace and we took full advantage of that, whatever the weather.

We also enjoyed a few cream teas, pasties, local chips and the odd cider. It was bliss!

Tuesday Treat – A Last Minute Holiday

Last week, we spent seven sun filled days on the South West coast. Once again we headed for Cadgwith Cove and spent the week walking the coast path, looking for dog friendly beaches and being constantly wind swept!

What a view! There’s nothing quite like being by the sea. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore, the smell of salt in the air and the different shades of blue are a real feast for the eyes. (Did you know my favourite colour is blue? It’s easy to see why!) We had such a fantastic week, helped by the great weather, though I’d quite happily walk around the Cornish coast path, whatever the weather. I’ve never been on a last minute holiday before, and while it did cause me some anxiety beforehand, as soon as we were packed up and in the car, heading for Cadgwith, I could feel all the stress seeping away. Ah! Cadgwith didn’t disappoint. It was amazing!

#BEDM – A Day in the Life

This isn’t really a typical day in my life, I’m afraid to say. We’ve been on holiday in the gorgeous Cadgwith Cove, spoilt by amazing weather, great food and lots of lovely walks. Here’s a day in the life of my holiday in Cornwall.

Tuesday Treat – Things that make me smile

I know. It’s not Tuesday. It’s Thursday. But that shows how much I’m struggling to get back into the swing of things since we got back from our holiday in Cornwall. Not only that, but as we had a family weekend last Saturday, we also took time off work to help/recover, so I don’t really feel in control of things. And for a control freak, it’s pretty scary & unsettling. I seem to be flitting between different things on my to-do list, never really completing anything & constantly feeling like I’m not achieving much. Therefore, I’m really relieved to have this little face to look at to help me through!

Poppy the Office DogWhether it’s her sniffing her way among long grass, stretching out mid-snooze on her chair, howling as she yawns or the little cheesy smell she gets when she’s been curled up, this little lady always manages to bring a smile to my face! It doesn’t matter whether I’ve had a great day or a rubbish day, she needs to be walked & getting out into the fresh air is always therapeutic too, even if I can’t remember what day it is. What they say about dogs being a great stress reliever is so very, very true! Over the wedding weekend last week, she was in kennels. Yes I cried when we dropped her off & I was counting down the hours until we could pick her up! This little monkey has well & truly worked her way into our hearts!
