Autumn Winter Project Light

Winter’s here in the North Hemisphere! The sun’s low in the sky, the cold’s arrived. It’s only been a month since the winter solstice and already the days are noticeably longer. Longer than when they were a month leading up to the solstice. Which means spring’s in 2 months!

I love the longer brighter days as the sun starts to climb higher in the sky, however nothing beats the colours and crisp light of late autumn, early winter’s golden hour, sunsets and twilight. The sun’s so low in the sky molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change Continue reading “Autumn Winter Project Light”

Intentions 2019

Happy New Year!

Sunset 1st Jan 2019

I hope you had an amazing time celebrating the New Year whether you were sleeping, partying or like me celebrating New Year’s Day soaking up the sun at the beach!

Like Christmas, ringing in the New Year was low key. Thanks to TVE1 en directo on my phone, the cats and I rang in the New Year watching the ball drop in Puerta de Sol Madrid snugged up warm. I just just managed to eat all 12 grapes in before the 12 campanadas finished. Just. Does having 1 or 2 left mid chew as you try to avoid choking on grape juice count?

I’m more New Year’s day than New Year’s Eve. I like to see the sunrise rise Continue reading “Intentions 2019”

Early Spring Jardi Botanic Marimurtra Part 1

Good Friday we made it out the city or rather I made it out the city for the first time in ages! P travels a lot, I don’t as the cats are on multi medicine a day. It’s easier and cheaper for me to be the main long term cat carer. I’m okay with it and happy with day trips.

Late last Spring we found nestled along the Costa Brava coast line to Jardi Botanic Marimurtra or Marimurtra botanical gardens. We liked it so much it’s always on the go to list.

The gardens are spellbinding. Continue reading “Early Spring Jardi Botanic Marimurtra Part 1”

SMART, Energy And Decluttering

I don’t know about you, but as soon as the Christmas presents have been opened I’m in, I wanna sort out mode. Major sort out mode! It often doesn’t happen for a few days. I prefer to have a morning free to sort out. I’m not very good at doing chores in the evening. That’s my excuse. More on that later.

This time of year inbetween Christmas and the New Year has most of us reflecting on the past year and thinking about the next. I don’t believe in New Year resolutions. One day is as good as the next to start on something new (or the 3rd day after a new moon according to the lunar cycle). There’s never a right time, sometimes you just have to start. Continue reading “SMART, Energy And Decluttering”

Christmas Weekend Friday Favourites

Happy Christmas!

I’ll keep the chit chat short and sweet this week and get straight into this week’s Weekend Friday Favourite or last week’s as I feel asleep editing last night. A mix of things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week.

Missoma Labradorite Single Wand Ring c240159.jpg

I came across Missoma looking for dragonfly earrings. They didn’t have dragonfly earrings, they did have a few items I liked enough to keep tabs open on on my phone and peek at until Black Friday. I got lucky and enjoyed 20% off 🙂 I really like the some of their unusual designs such as this Continue reading “Christmas Weekend Friday Favourites”
