Cornwall!

I’m blogging from a little ice cream parlour in Padstow on the edge of Cornwall. It’s boiling hot here, and chocabloc with tourists (me being one of them!), but it’s such a quaint place. There are lovely tea rooms along the alleyways, as well as countless Cornish pasty shops and fudge shops, and the streets are decorated with rainbow bunting!

I rode here on a tandem bicycle with my mum (it was the only bike left in the bicycle hire place...). It was extremely wobbly and the gears didn't really work, but it was a fun experience, although perhaps not one to be repeated.

Here are some photos of my stay so far:

Loving your blog, esp the skirts from shirts/longer skirts, I've been looking to try that for a while now but I can't find any nice designs. Maybe I need to be more imaginative or visit a charity shop near you.
Also dungarees as a playsuit/jumpsuit, clever! I'm liking it!!
