*Not sure what beach this is at. Me, my 2 younger sisters, mum and dad <3*
Recently I’ve been thinking. I’m not looking after myself enough and a lot of this is down to being tired a lot. I get up at 5 am most mornings and even when Mike gets up with Harry I still end up getting up at 7 am, I can never just relax. I haven’t been taking Harry many places recently and really want to change that.
I always feel so much better after going to the gym and eating healthy. Also when I’m not spending money randomly instead of planning. I’m thinking of starting a step by step program sharing what I’m doing on here to get all parts of my life in order and the way I want them to be. I want to be able to go on holiday, not anything really fancy just to Cornwall, I love Cornwall and I haven’t been since I was 15.
Every year we would make the long drive down to Cornwall, usually overnight so the traffic was better. We’d have some sweets to last us the journey, my love of milk bottles started there, I remember riding in a recovery truck one of the times we broke down eating a packet of milk bottles, I think it was the first time I’d tired them. It was such an adventure, but I have a feeling my mum and dad wouldn’t have enjoyed breaking down on the motorway 2 years running half as much as we did as kids.
I want to take Harry and re-visit all the places we used to go to. We would stay on a camp site that was also a farm called Trencreek farm, it was family ran so we got to know them each year we went. I remember pork belly pigs, goats and even a ram who decided to chase my dad. He had a stick at the time and was using this to keep the ram from headbutting him while stood on a picnic bench. I forgot about that, its funny what you remember while writing.
There was a quiet beach nearby called Port Holland where we would go quite often, my kind of beach it had only 1 shop at the time and now only a small coffee shop (as far as I know). There wasn’t big crowds of people but enough people around for us kids to make friends or I play cricket with a group of friendly strangers.
My last visit to Port Holland ended in a typical dramatic Ellie fashion, I was in the sea with my body board. I don’t have the balance for real surfing ha ha, I’m more like to get covered my a wave like the time me and mum went looking for a jelly shoe, sat on her shoulders still covered us both! It felt like I stood on something really sharp, I assumed it was glass so hobbled out of the sea. When I looked at my foot all I could see was a pin prick but it was quickly swelling up and very painful. On the way back to the car hoping in flip-flops I did a spectacular fall and grazed the same leg and my hands on the stone car park. So clumsy but makes me laugh now.
There is more places where I want to visit again some of the amusement parks, the swimming baths in St Austell, Mevagissey a little fishing port where I remember running down the peer in between waves splashing over. My aim is to do this next year. I want to save money by planning my meals, bills and any other way I can think. I want to see how much I can earn as an extra income, mostly online and fitting around Harry. Most importantly I want to be healthy and to a weight I feel comfortable at and hopefully more confident 🙂 I hope you enjoy my posts. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram if you like.
