Yes I know - I haven't posted anything in over a month. I could try and come up with excuses but I really don't have any, I've just been a bit rubbish! 

Well that and my week away in Cornwall funded by my clearing out. There were lots of lazy mornings, long walks, leisurely lunches and general chilling out.  The coast path was so well signposted (most of the time) and I was pretty lucky with the weather. I also visited Falmouth and the Gweek Seal Sanctuary.  I think my favourite places though were Trebah Gardens and Mawnan Church. The gardens were so gorgeous even though most of the flowers weren't out. There was a private beach (I did go for a paddle), a fab little restaurant and a lovely helpful lady on the information desk.  I went to Mawnan Church on one of my walks and it is a beautiful little church with the prettiest graveyard - I could have sat there for ages but it started to rain!

Below are a few of my favourite photo's from the week...

So I had a fab time and have been back three weeks - time to get back to the clearing. I took some more stuff to the charity shop last weekend and have just photographed a few more bits for eBay.  I'm still determined to carry on clearing, just need to get motivated again. The thought of another holiday might just be enough to do it!!


  1. Lovely photos. I adore Helford. My Hubbys a sailor and we have sat on a couple of boats watching the stars before rowing over to the pub!
    I'm back down there soon, Near St Ives, but may well hit Falmouth also...

  2. I adored the area and hope to go back. Maybe base myslef in Falmouth this time and explore from there (I don't drive so public transport links are important!)
