A Little Photo Catch Up. Christmas Lights and Markets

I hope you’re having a great week so far! Yep, weekend catch up on a Thursday. It goes like that sometimes. Anyways last weekend was filled with Christmas markets, lights and of course workouts and running….

Friday saw a run and the last time seeing sunshine for a few days.

Later I met a friend to check out the Christmas market or Fira de Santa Llucia located in the centre. Heaving doesn’t Continue reading “A Little Photo Catch Up. Christmas Lights and Markets”

Late November Catch Up

Happy December!

I hope your week’s going okay. Apologies for not stopping by to say hi last week. The week went in a blur. I said see you later to my friend moving back to Australia with her growing family. Her big surprise before she left! I’ll miss her. We only just met this summer, following my trend of making friends only for one of us to leave within a year. I’m happy for her, yet I know I’m going to miss her loads.

The cats have had their own personal mini dramas last week, all relating to their ongoing illnesses and I was just plain lazy. Continue reading “Late November Catch Up”

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! Mine’s been unintentionally catching up on sleep in an already out of whack sleep routine, but hey, I think I’ve found a solution to bulky scarves.

I always find most scarves are too big for me making me look like either I’m wearing a neck brace Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Weekend Friday Favourites

Without sounding too much of a Scrooge, I’m happy messaging Happy Christmas, Season Greetings whatever. In Spain Christmas cards aren’t the norm, but my family expects them and if you want to be in good books then amazon becomes very popular. This is because no UK animal charity who sells Christmas cards will ship outside the UK. They’re missing out on a huge market! I’m more the Scrooge writing them. I mess up so many I have to buy at least an additional box to make up for the errors. The messed up ones end up getting cut up into tags.

Christmas lights along Gran Via. They’re the same as last year, the year before and quite possibly the year before that. I still can’t work out what song it is. That’s if it’s a song.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can’t believe December’s here. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come

Happy December!

The past few weeks walking past the deer enclosure at the zoo, I’ve been silently saying see ya on Christmas Eve! While technically they’re not reindeer, some have antlers, they’re deer, that’s enough for me to start thinking of them as reindeer. Growing up Christmas Eve, my favourite day of Christmas was filled with magic. Even now I get excited. Just a little because we all know who Father Christmas is really. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While Spain’s main festive present giving day’s Kings Day, Christmas celebrated more low key here to how I know it. Places close still early Christmas Eve Continue reading “Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come”
