Lyme Park

Since we have got the puppy we decided to join the National Trust.

We have Lyme Park right on our doorstep and it has been great to socialise Red with lots of other dogs and children.

Dogs are allowed on leads in the children’s play area, which is useful as I’m trying to teach her not to jump up at people.

She has been easy to train so far (I’m probably speaking too soon!) She doesn’t run off and is brilliant off the lead.

The question now is do we go for another baby whilst we have a puppy? If I had my time again, we should have had a baby first. I’m not sure how hard it is walking a dog with a baby?

Baby number four is not set in stone but I thought the dog might make me think ‘no three is enough!’ But to be honest it has been fine so far (now the pooing and weeing everywhere has calmed down).

I’m not sure what will happen in 2018. We have a few exciting things in the pipeline but I will reveal those once they happen!


Port Isaac, Cornwall

So we have just come back from a week’s holiday. In that week we spent four days in the lovely Port Isaac in Cornwall.

Me and Sam haven’t been to Cornwall before and we can see why it is so popular. It is such a pretty part of the UK. Stunning scenery and lovely lovely people.

On the way to Port Isaac we stopped in Tintagel, which was a stunning little old village where King Arther was supposedly conceived. 

We visited the old post office and joined the National Trust in there. The lady was wonderful and even let the twins use the staff toilet as they kept shouting ‘I need a wee mummy!’

We walked down to Merlin’s cave looking for mermaids and had a Cornish pasty, you can never go wrong with one of those for lunch.

Port Isaac itself was one of the prettiest villages I have ever seen. We stayed in a fab cottage just behind Nathan Outlaw’s fish restaurant (a massive thumbs up – food was delicious).

We also had the best fish and chips I have ever tasted in the old primary school. The battered fish literally melted in your mouth (I’m sounding like a proper foodie now aren’t I?).

Every place we ate in throughout our stay had amazing food. The Mote Seafood restaurant and the Port Gaverne were all delicious.

We went fishing in rock pools and had a look at Doc Martin’s house. They were filming whilst we were there one day, which was cool to see. I have just started to watch the first series (behind the times I know) now we have been to the place where it is filmed and love it!

In my next blog post I will tell you about the other place we stayed, the gorgeous Berridon Farm. Till then, enjoy the pictures.
