6 Things I Never Considered Cycling

I love cycling. It’s my transport, it’s my freedom, it gives me great cardio and helps sculpt my quads.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s environmentally friendly and cheap to run after (more…)

A Weekend in August

I hope you had a great weekend! I can’t believe next week’s September. Can August hang around for a little while longer? I’m not ready to give up summer! I like it too much.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


Late Summer Afternoon, Parc de la Ciutadella

While I was quite content last holiday puente weekend just to hang out the cats and spend extra time at the beach, come Monday I craving a mini explore somewhere.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I toyed with cycling around Port Vell. It’s not a part of the city I go much and the sea front along Port Vell and Moll de Bosch i Alsina is kinda picturesque. As the beaches were busy, the port would have been equally as busy. I didn’t have time to go to the Botanic Jardins (they’re been on my summer to go list all summer!) and was craving a greenery fix even though I’d been the zoo the day before. I would have gone to the zoo, but I limit to 2 times a week so I don’t get too bored or overtired of it. It was about an hour until sunset, so there was only one place I knew in cycling distance with greenery, Parc de la Ciutadella. Okay, no a mini adventure as I cycling through it a few times a month. I didn’t escape the holiday crowds as it was packed with people and Pokemon Go. However if you head towards the Parliament buildings, you can find quiet pockets no matter the season. If it’s sunny near sunset, hazy sunshine. Enjoy!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

International Black Cat Appreication Day

In honour of yesterday* being International Black Cat Appreciation Day, Diesel, the happiest go lucky ray of sunshine being I know.IMG_1723

That’s not to say he can’t live up to his other names, Mr Poo Pants (he occasionally poos outside the litter box . His brother’s, Mr Pee Pants. He misaims in the litter box. On the floor), Sh*tbox, D, You Sh*T. His nose is always in something. He lets you know immediately very loudly it’s dinner time if it’s past dinner and snack time. All shopping is inspected on arrival and I have to leave cat toys such as kickaroos on the bed so when I get in and change into comfy clothes, he doesn’t thumper kick my things. Any plastic bag left out (with items in) is fair game to be chewed. Loudly, when he wants me wake up for breakfast. He answers back, at least once a day sprints around the apartment, loves to ambush his brother, to be up in high places, loves sunbathing and exploring communal hallway when I get in. He’s the sweetest shadow I could ever wish for, who loves to snuggle up in the crook of my arm, has to have hugs when I get back, has 14 sleeping spots on rotation, gives the strongest head butts/body slams and can only be brushed on his cardboard chaise lounge scratcher while he shreds pieces off. Never a dull moment with him around!IMG_0654IMG_0739OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

International Black Cat Appreciation Day was created to raise awareness and give black cats a better chance at adoption. Thanks to myths, superstitions and looks, black cats, dogs and other black pets in adoption shelters are most likely to be overlooked when it comes to adoption and end up spending a long time in the shelters (if they’re lucky and it’s not a kill shelter). Black cats in the many parts of the world are considered bad luck. In the UK they’re are considered good luck! From previous black cats I’ve met and D’s no exception, they’re a slightly more crazy, full of energy and mischief, handsome, elegant, inquisitive, intelligent and just as loving companion as all other cats. If you wish to adopt a cat or dog, please adopt from shelter and don’t forget to checkout the black cats and dogs. You never know what fur ball awaits you!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
