I hope you’re having a great weekend! A short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourite as this girl really should be in the land of zzzzz for she has a long day tomorrow. Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently. 

Mr D

Just because. I think he’s looking forward to when it’s gets cooler. His hoomin mama isn’t. He’s not too well at the moment which is why he’s looking little thin. He’s eating and has a vets trip this week.

Weekend Friday Favourites

Welcome to a long over due Weekend Friday Favourites. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently.

Excuses as to why I’ve been absent lately I’m blaming here on Mercury being in retrograde. That’s my excuse! Anyway I hope you’re having a great weekend and lets get into this week’s hopefully short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourites

Jata Hogar Mini Manual Chopper

Out shopping with ChefPaulGuru aka P a few months back he got all excited coming across this mini manual chopper. My face was probably really, you excited over this?! Before he was here for a few months I started making smashed chickpea and avocado salads. He said this would be perfect for chopping them up. It wasn’t that expensive, about €10 and knowing unless I had examples made I probably wouldn’t use it, made a few salads with it. It really is easy to use and I use it about Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Flamingo Chicks

Swan’s aren’t the only ugly ducklings. Flamingo chicks after their cute baby chick white plumage turns grey are ugly duckling contenders. Once they hit teenage chicks months their beauty starts to shine. Grey slowly starts turning pink as they start feeding for themselves.

I always love watching baby flamingos grow up in just a few months at Barcelona Zoo. I just hope when they get rehomed, it’s a good place. Nesting started back in May and all are now in nursery or kindergarten. Some chicks only hatched last week. Maybe this was a space thing at the zoo or a hierarchy thing. It’s sweet how they’re being independent but still need Mama and Dad to feed them. Continue reading “Flamingo Chicks”

Weekend Friday Favourites

Intermittent Weekend Friday Favourites is back! Consistent posting just isn’t happening at the moment. I’ve upped my climbing classes until June, however I’m spending as many five minutes as I can writing posts. I read a great quote in Instyle USA Magazine earlier this year from Li Bingbing. A Chinese proverb goes a little like this: Time is like water in a sponge. You can always find time if you squeeze hard enough.

Warm May temps have been moody chill May temps.

Anyway, I hope you’re having a fun weekend and I’ll leave ya with Weekend Friday Favourites. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently.

April Catch Up!

Happy May!

 

If the first half of April was quiet, the second half in comparison was action packed! Or for me it was.

April’s weather was more upside down than usual. Sometimes it’s a warm 22C, other times it’s chilly 16C. Mid April I’m usually in a denim jacket. This April, I was in a puffer jacket and thermal vest under T-shirts. Climate change? Winter was mild and sunny, April was windy with a few rainy days. For almost a week over Easter, grey skies, strong winds brought with them amazing waves making me appreciate sunny days. Continue reading “April Catch Up!”
