We had a very CORNISH weekend this past weekend. It started on Friday when Dylan and I went to the Cornish Food Festival in Truro after dropping Fletch off to school. We totally made the most of our free time and spent the day tasting all the different cheeses, fudge, clotted cream custard, chocolate, shortbread biscuits, cider you name it we tried it. We did actually buy a few bits whilst there and both opted for the pulled pork nachos for lunch (which were incredible btw). I can't go to Truro without going into Topshop so I obviously didn't come out of there empty handed and Im sure there will be an outfit post very soon featuring my new knitwear.

Saturday was a very rainy day but I actually went out for lunch at Trevaskis farm to celebrate 2 of my friends turning 30. Whilst there we picked pumpkins in the rain all ready for me to make pumpkin soup and Dylan to make pumpkin pie. Saturday evening saw more birthday celebrations at a barn dance. 

Sunday was sunny again but Fletch had come down with a stinker of a cold so we had plenty of snuggles on the sofa with blankets, hot water bottles and a Lego movie in the morning. After bacon sarnies for lunch we decided to go out and get some fresh air.  Im so glad we did, we went to Roskilly's Farm and had a lovely afternoon seeing all the farm animals, walking around the ponds and watching the cows being milked. We obviously finished off with ice-cream and I think the fresh air did Fletch the world of good as he was much chirpier come Monday morning.

I hope you all had wonderful weekends with loved ones. Theres nothing better than spending time with family and friends. Quite clearly we were all  about the farm life this weekend.

Dress - New Look // Top - Topshop sold out (similar) // Shoes - New Look

Its officially cool enough for tights but on occasions still a little too warm for a coat. The weather definitely makes for awkward dressing so I'm keeping it simple with a plain pinafore dress from New Look and black everything else (it doesn't even look like i'm wearing shoes). If I'm being totally honest Im actually relieved that I can finally cover up my legs because they are always so pale and I can fully embrace my paleness throughout the autumn/winter months without having to worry about applying fake tan frequently.

I'll be cracking out my scarves next........oh Autumn

I always said I would never be that mum that let their child run around the beach naked.........Im such a hypocrite. Last week I was totally THAT mum.

My mum, dad and I went to Gwithian beach just for an hour (the beach I visit the most out of our huge selection in Cornwall, its my fave) and we weren't expecting it to be quite so warm so didn't bring swimmers or even a towel but Fletch was desperate to get in the sea so we let him go in his pants.  He thought it was brilliant and when he got them wet we just took them off as its such a quiet beach anyway and he ran around naked for a good 10 minutes before I couldn't handle the nakedness any longer and put his top back on to protect his modesty.

But honestly he had the time of his life, just proving again that the best things in life really are free. I hope I'm creating the best memories for his childhood just as my parents did, I hope he will look back at these times in his life with fond memories.......... I know I will
