The Feeling Of Being Some Place New

August not only is the hottest month in Spain, it’s also the unofficial national holiday month. Government offices, a few local businesses will close for the afternoons. Some take the whole month off using up all their annual holiday and aside from tourists spots places slow down taking it easy as temps go up. 

I’ve accepted with both cats on medicine numerous times of day, holidays are only if cats can come. In the past, I’ve had friends or colleagues look after (more…)

Home Office Revamp

A few months ago my office space had a revamp! For about 5 years my desk space was solid top fold up picnic table and a fold up picnic chair with 2 low Ikea Billy bookshelves I shared with P.

Why I like Instyle Magazine

April’s and May’s 2017 covers of US Instyle magazine made me happy. April’s featured Victoria Beckham and with May, Amy Schumer. 2 ladies with 2 totally different body shapes and age.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been an US Instyle magazine reader. I don’t think I’ve missed an issue since 2003. I was so happy when I found my then local kiosk sold it in Spain when I moved here. (more…)

Illa Fantasia Parc Aquatic And Weekend Catch Up

Do not wear cheeky bikini bottoms at water parks. Wedgies may occur on slides as you’re kicked off into the plunge pools. Just something I found out this weekend! Beach siesta

I hope you’re having a great week so far! The heat’s been turned up this week and I think that’s how it’s going to stay for the next 3-4 months. Absolutely fine with me!

This past Saturday we went to the Illa Fantasia parc aquatic about a 25 minute drive away. Earlier in the week cycling to gym I was daydreaming about the crazy river (more…)
