Hello September

I can’t believe it’s September already! One minute it was July, August flew by so quick I wasn’t able to catch my breath and now it’s September. I’m not ready for pumpkin spice and layers. I want strawberries, peaches, summer sun and long bright days to stay. I want beach siestas, dips the sea to cool off, feeling warm sunshine on my skin not to stop. 

August was injury month. I’ve some how messed up my left psoas, in one of Studio Tone It Up app kickboxing classes. I did kickboxing years ago, so I know to be careful air punching and kicking. A few days day I noticed in lizard pose reaching back Continue reading “Hello September”

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 you had a great weekend! I’ll keep the chit chat short and sweet as I did the classic, 10min shut eye thinking about editing and fell asleep last night instead. So I’m dropping by with last weeks, Weekend Friday Favourites on a Monday. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye the past few weeks as I missed last weeks WFF.

BABY MEERKATS

I can’t handle the cuteness right now. Barcelona Zoo has baby meerkats! When I first saw them 2 weeks ago they were teenie tiny. 

2 weeks Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

October’s 1st Week Catch Up

I don’t know about where you are at the moment, but that thing about crisp autumnal fall afternoons is a myth. Daily temps are a cool 23C. Too cool for shorts and too warm for leggings. The light’s shifting so bright summer colours stand out against a softer light. More people are dressing in darker colours which I try to avoid as I prefer wearing lighter colours leaving me feeling double not knowing how to layer right now. Even the weather doesn’t know how to layer. 23C the average with some days topping 26C with the evenings 20-22C.

Anyways I’ll leave you with some catch up photos! Mostly of the zoo. Youtube’s been less this week, yet that time’s been taken up translating Continue reading “October’s 1st Week Catch Up”

Humidity And The Beach

The humidity’s something else at the moment. If you’re in the wind which hasn’t seemed to had a day off this year you’re okay. In pockets were there’s no air like my gym changing room, in the centre down narrow alley ways the air’s sticky and somewhat still. 

My gym has air conditioning but never freezing. Just a little cooler or warmer than the ambient air temp depending on the season. And at the moment it’s bust. Continue reading “Humidity And The Beach”
