How on Earth is it nearly September already?! This month has flown by and it’s been a lot of fun, so I have plenty to share in my monthly post about everything that I’ve liked and loved recently.
Towards the beginning of the month we visited Wheal Martyn, which is literally five minutes from our house, but somewhere we’d never been before. It’s such a lovely place for a walk and if you have children there are lots for them to do too! They also make a pretty amazing cream tea with warm scones, we’ll definitely be going there again.
Seeing Family and Beth
This month the boys and I went up to Dudley for a few days to visit family. My Mum and little sisters live near there and my eldest sister has just come home from Turkey and is staying there with my niece and nephew, who I got to see for the first time in at least 4 years!
It was so lovely seeing them all and we had tea with the lovely Beth and one of her daughters on one of the nights too! I thought I’d better remember to mention Beth or she’d tell me off…
I went with my friend Claire to watch the Scummy Mummies this month when they were in Cornwall, and they were hilarious.
Jurassic World and the Equalizer 2
I watched the new Jurassic World film with the boys in an Odeon Dudley and not only was the film brilliant, but oh my word when did cinemas get so posh?! Our local one is a bit of a let down after the squishy leather double seats of the Odeon at Merry Hill! At our own cinema I watched the Equalizer 2 with Si and really enjoyed it, it’s always nice to have an excuse for a bit of a date night too.
We have watched so many fireworks this month, which is ace as Si and I both love them. Our first date was to watch fireworks and we have seen so many displays together. This month we saw the fireworks at Flambards and the British Fireworks Championships in Plymouth.
I absolutely LOVE how chilled out our school holidays have been, lots of lie ins and the boys have been absolute beauts. I don’t actually remember the last time I had to properly tell either of them off, although I am tempting fate by saying that! I’m really not looking forward to early mornings again.
Penrose and The Loe Pool
Whilst working with Burts Chips this month and researching places that I had never been to in Cornwall, I came across Penrose and The Loe Pool. They are near to Helston and Porthleven and the whole area is beautiful!
I hope you’ve all had a great month too?
