I knew it was coming up, I just hadn’t made the connection it was this month, I’m running the Buff obstacle race until they sent an email reminder. It’s an untimed race around Montjuic with fancy dress encouraged! I wasn’t going to dress up, but I kinda want to dress up, so any ideas are welcome! There’s mud involved but not the degree Spartan. It’ll be cold, so the has to be adaptable for leggings and a long sleeved top. I was thinking either Super Girl, Wonder Woman in leggings or a mermaid, but they’ve been overdone. Maybe Zena the Warrior Princess! Nothing too OTT, something I can run in and feel comfortable without drawing too much attention. That’s not too much to ask for is it?!
Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have been making me smile this week or caught my eye. It’s meant to be a Friday thing, but hey.
Say what you like, cold sheets when it’s cold, brrr! There’s nothing like jumping in bed knowing there’s a hot water bottle in there when it’s cold. They’re something of a novelty in Spain, only found in Natura, which I don’t get as it gets cold here. In the UK and France they’re an essential winter item and come in an array of cute covers. I haven’t been able to sleep very well recently, which I put partly down to being too cold despite new fluffy pjs. A hot water bottle’s helped.
There’s something about fleecy pj’s when it’s cold. I wasn’t sleeping too well, which like with the hot water bottle I put down partly being too cold in my thinner cotton pjs. If I can I go for tapered leg winter pj’s to avoid capri pjs, like when you’re getting comfy, a trouser leg rides, you try to pull it down with the other foot, then that leg rides up and end up you with shorts. Pink here, grey here.
These guys are the ultimate tag players! They love to propel and rebound themselves off the enclosure window dividers or pause, be on the lookout for someone or something outside before play’s to tempting.
I’ve graduated to next phase! My bookshelves can breathe finally. I thought last year moving I sorted and threw out a lot!
Carrie Underwood and James Corden
I know that Carrie Underwood’s big in country music. So’s Dolly Parton and that’s the extent of my country music knowledge. I do like watching James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke and this one had me giggling. I swear he’s the same presenting as he was playing Smithy in Gavin and Stacey.
They’re on! And the same as last year. El Corte Ingles are always the exception. Their’s are musical FIY.
Shape Magazine September 2105 Single Leg Extension
These look easy, but they’re not! I felt the burn after 8/7 and they also target the lower back as well as legs, bum and abs.
Still both on chicken! Both are back at the vets next week for check up and I’m hoping it’s back to kibble/crunch with the occasional chicken. I’m not sure if Diesel’s medicine is working as he’s had a few thyroid meows sessions, but he’s definitely been a lot calmer. Still answers back, but isn’t as aggressive. Aj I think has put on weight, so I’m hoping his medicine’s working! This winter he’s not snuggling up under the duvet, a blanket or in one of their beds, like he usually does. He’s still preferring to sleep under the cat tree, on a blanket or on his winter sunbathing pillow. Diesel, he’ll take being tucked up in a blanket any cold day!
Dr Neil De Grasse Tyson. Can an opera singer shatter glass
Whats been making you smile this week? If you ran a fancy dress run, who or what would you dress up as?! Have a great weekend!
