Birthday weekend in Cornwall

Even though I've only been away for five days I feel like I have about ten blog posts worth of stuff to tell you. I will have to split things up into several posts, which will be good as I feel a little like I've lost my blogging mojo a little bit.  Hope you guys still enjoy reading this! (Nb. if you're not in a reading mood you can scroll-y scroll-y down to the pictures at the bottom, it's okay, I won't be mad).

On Thursday we left the house bound for Cornwall in Tom's campervan.  Our first stop was a campsite near Fowey where we camped for the evening (giving Tom a chance to try out his new awning).  We headed to Fowey for the evening (we got to go on a little car ferry there) and had dinner and a little explore.  It's such a lovely little town that we returned the next day so I could nose around some of the little shops I spent the evening making noseprints on the windows of!

The next day we visited Polperro, which is just beautiful.  It was a lovely sunny day and we ate pasties for lunch and gorged on Pic n Mix and explored the little streets and harbour.  After our trip back to Fowey we headed to our hotel in Mevagissey, where we were staying for the next three nights.

The next day we visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan - 200 acres of gardens, with a jungle, wildlife centre and Victorian gardens and vegetable patches.  We were one of the first in and most of the time we were walking around we barely saw another person; it was such a tranquil, peaceful place to explore and gave me loads of ideas for our garden.

Yesterday was my birthday, and Tom surprised me with the best present ever - a Lomo LC-A+.  I have wanted one of these ever since I was about 16 but never had the money to buy one so I was over the moon to finally add it to my collection! I spent Sunday clicking away so hopefully should have some snaps to show you by the end of the week.  I also got some lovely cards, Tom's very kind parents treated me to a subscription to Olive Magazine (the BBC Good Food magazine) and my parents' bought me some Hunter wellies, the Accessorize playsuit in my last post and some really nice John Lewis undies.  I spent some birthday money on two dresses from ASOS which I'll show you in a later post.

We were so exhausted from all our exploring that last night, instead of going for a birthday meal, we had a picnic in our hotel room, with scones, clotted cream and jam, popcorn, crisps and dip, chocolate fingers and wine! Was the perfect end to the weekend.

This morning we travelled back and arrived home (to some more lovely cards and an awesome package I'll also blog about in a later post!).  All in all an absolutely brilliant few days.  I took some videos on my camera whilst we are away so Tom is going to help me make it into a little Cornwall video diary (a la Gem Fatale's brilliant Scotland video diaries).  In the meantime, hope you enjoy my snaps of the trip...
