Counting down the days

This is definitely my lazy way of keeping up with posting, but I cannot wait for June to come round. I know it's silly to wish time away, but over the next two months I have a lot of things I wish I didn't have to do. Mainly job hunting, completing my work placement and doing the god awful presentation to accompany it - I am alright at speaking to groups when I'm comfortable with said people, but I do not like the tutor in charge of the work placement assignments, I don't even like walking past him in the corridor. We had to do presentations every Tuesday last year with him, and I still hate them, didn't help at all :/

But enough rambling, I'm dedicating this post to my second home, Cornwall, mainly Perranporth.
I'm going back there early June with Jack and his family. This will be the fourth time we've gone, and I'm yet to get bored of the place.
It's just so beautiful - the beaches are gorgeous, the sea is clear, the beach we go to has a pub on it - how cool is that! And everyone's so relaxed and just takes each day as it comes. I'd love to own either a crafts or surf shop there, or a little tea room by the beach. I'm pretty jealous of the lucky Sam who lives in Cornwall, and as you'll see from her posts, always has a lovely smile on her face :)

The following are photos either myself or Jack have taken - please don't take them without asking first!

Can't leave a holiday post without adding a little cheery music. Jack Johnson's Banana Pancakes is one of my favourite songs, so relaxing and happy :)

Do you have somewhere you consider a "second home"? :)


  1. Ahhhhhh It's my home!!! Perranporth is a lovely beach isn't it! Its fab that The Watering Hole is right on the beach.

    My fave beach in Cornwall is Gwithian/Hayle though, 3 miles of sand. Mexican Towans is the best part of Gwithian, Its a bit of a trek to actually get to the beach, you have to walk through a lot of sand dunes but it is totally worth it once you get there, its pretty much empty all year round, just how I like it!! xx

  2. banana pancakes is the perfect beach song!!
    good luck with the job hunting xx

  3. Lovely photos, I wish I were there right now. I have a friend who lives in Torbay, though I've never been. I really should go see her :)

  4. i'd absolutely love to live near a beach, lovely post!xx

  5. Aw man, I love Cornwall! Such a lovely place to visit with the fam... can't really fault their pasties either! ;)

    Such a shame about the job hunting and presentations - good luck with them both! I'm pleased to say I'm no longer ever required to do any presentations (thank god!), but sadly I will be job hunting in the v.near future... x

  6. June means winter here >< burrr i'll froze this year.
