Time out

The Eden project

Biggest sandwich ever!

On our time out in Cornwall I was determined to visit a few gardens as when we get back home that is one project I need to crack on with. So of the two places I fancied visiting (Eden and gardens of Heligan) the changeable weather meant we headed for the Eden project.

I was slightly worried that Isaac would get a bit bored with just looking at plants – but as the Eden project is an educational charity they really put a lot on for kids. The highlight for Isaac probably being a surprise visit by Mr Bloom where he was right at the front, singing and dancing along. Oh and a huge wall of old fridge doors with magnetic letters where he could practice writing his name.

It was a great day that also taught me a good lesson – always check

online for a discount. The ticket prices were steep (worth it but steep) but we could have saved 10% by booking online! How did I miss that!!!

Peace

Taking a break – Looe

Time away is always good and this year I’ve not doe enough of it so far – things have been way too busy.

The best thing I find away from the normal grind is that it gives time to reflect of things and where stuff is going. Maybe it’s the Emily thing as well, but there are too many days just passing on by and not being enjoyed to the full. I’ve always struggled finding a point of this blog, outside of just tracking my butterfly like interests from one project to the next but it’s time to start taking things seriously – time after all is fleeting, Isaac is growing up and my memory is starting to get selective.

So here’s to reflections from Looe – designs for life and general motivation for the months ahead…

Peace
