Painted houses and blossom :: I’m forever changing this display :: My niece and I dug up Kynance Cove :: My favourite corner :: Playing on Cornish beaches with my niece and nephew :: Anyone for a cuppa? :: Flying through candy floss :: Hey beautiful :: ‘Freedom is a state of mind’


A magnolia tree on the Oxford high street :: Five blissful days in beautiful Vienna :: A fun day in Oxford with bloggers KatLottieHeather and Karen :: A lack of holiday research means you discover the best stuff when you’re not really looking for it :: Finding a giant pink rabbit :: Walking along the sunny and graffiti covered Donaukanal, Vienna :: ‘Be your own kind of beautiful’ :: The view from the Belvedere Palace where I saw Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss :: Peony bushes in the Burggarten, Vienna, I almost dived in!


A lazy Wednesday on the beach at St Ives :: Happy 70th birthday to my dad, bang on trend since 1945! :: Floral fantastic :: I wouldn’t mind living in a mint house :: Sunshine on a rainy day :: Because it’s raining outside :: A magical day with Shevie of Fine and Dandy :: Kitsch Wednesday with a gorgeous gift from Shevie :: Leaving Cornwall with lots of sweet memories

As far as months go April was pretty amazing. My family and I spent a weekend in Plymouth to celebrate my father’s 70th, followed by a week on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall. After a few days back in Oxford my man and I travelled to Vienna and then Brighton. I have to say I fared pretty well spending most of the month living out of a suitcase!

For May I intend to slow things down by indulging in a few pursuits closer to home, including catching up with friends. I hope you had a wonderful month and that May is packed full of happiness and cheer. If you’d like to follow my slightly slower paced May you’ll find me over on Instagram.

    you been doing some lovely things, April is a nice time to travel I think, especially to Europe. I love the deckchairs, realizing I think I decluttered mine! I'll take the camper van, that would be all my UK holidays sorted! X
