Weekend Friday Favourites

Please excuse Weekend Friday Favourites on a Monday. All I had to do was sort out photos, add links and edit last night. My eyes got so so sleepy before I knew it, it’s Monday morning:

I can’t believe this weekend is the 2nd to last weekend of of summer. From next Friday the zoo closes an hour earlier until the clocks go back when it switches to winter hours. That’s weeks from now but it’ll fly! There’s still however a week and half of summer to go. Autumn Fall can wait a little longer. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Anyways, I hope you’re having a great weekend and I’ll leave ya with this weeks Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week.

Greenday Freeze Dried Pineapple and Strawberry ChipsOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last weekend I found these in Carrefour along with broccoli chips and apple and strawberry chips. Thankfully P liked the broccoli chips thanks to his non sweet tooth as after 2 the oooh look freeze dried broccoli wore off. The pineapple chips didn’t last 5 minutes in a trail mix and the strawberry chips I think I inhaled in less 5 minutes. They were tasty. Kinda like the strawberry pieces in Special K or muesli. Whole strawberries that melt on your tongue!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sunsets and Reverse SunsetsOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s still warm enough for shorts and a T cycling back in the evenings for a little while longer, though getting used to cycling back in the dark is making me a little sad and thinking of layers. Sunsets having been making up for the early darkness. I don’t usually get to see them and the colours have been purples, golds and pinks. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAimg_2464

Touch Down Skater Lunges/ Side Skaters plyometrics-side-skaters

These are basically the same as skater lunges, except rather than use the arms for balance and speed, you touch down opposite hand instead: hop left, land left leg, touch down near left foot with right hand. Hop right, land right leg, touch down near right foot with left hand. As you have to squat a little deeper as the opposite arm is touching down rather that cross body for balance and momentum, your bum and supporting leg work harder. I did 3 sets of 30 secs Tuesday and was still feeling them slightly on Friday. Wednesday running the gluteus medius and minims were talking loudly.


I complete forgot I took this last week! I love how the dogs want to play, the ducks are getting ready to roost (do ducks roost?).

    I am very intrigued by those chips.

      They’re yummy especially the pineapple chips! They’re Thai so you might be able to find some in some Asian food shops!

    The pineapple and strawberry chips sound very nice! I’m currently addicted to roasted coconut chips 😀

    1. says:

      I kinda like those coconut chips but prefer normal dried coconut flakes. They’re just yummy in trail mix 🙂
