Woohoo! Spring’s officially here!
Warmer longer days, yes please! Spring’s being say hi here for a few weeks and only now it’s just just warm enough for a denim jacket, T-shirt with a jumper needed at night. Though I’ve been more like the locals, sticking with my lightweight puffer jacket. Cherry blossom’s out already and trees are getting dressed. Aside from allergies, this girl’s happy spring’s here!
Anyway, for anyone interested a little March catch up. Continue reading “March Catch Up”
Thanks mostly to my exceptional organisational skills, most of our walks happen late afternoon near sunset. Every intention is given to getting out early with walks last weekend being no exception. I’m thinking for a month just get up at either 5 or 6 am regardless off how much sleep I’ve had to make me the morning person in my head I am. I wouldn’t even say I’m a night owl as an excuse.
My September beat the snooze button challenge failed. Not a complete failure as the feeling of disappointment getting up later is enough to Continue reading “Night Walks and Autumnal Fall Changes”
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.

Part of of the last weekend of April and May Day can be found here.
I waited until the rain had stopped Sunday morning before running. I don’t mind running in the rain, however the rain was meant to stop half way through my run and as it was warmish I didn’t want deal with running tying jackets around my waist. I took advantage of waiting to get some overdue tidying done. That was until we went to Ikea this week to replace some shelving units, pulled everything out that I’ve still to go through along with rearranging furniture. The changes are better, so much space opened up!
Parc del Garraf
Run done in perfect running weather and hardly anyone out (even better!) Continue reading “Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 2: The Zoo, Earth Day Fair and Parc del Garraf”
This weekend made me realise just how much I love/need the sea, colour and nature. I might live in a city, however I’m lucky enough to live in a more open part of it, see the sea, greenery and of course I’m a 25 minutes fast cycle (21 min sprint) to the zoo, my own tropical garden during late summer afternoons when everybody’s at the beach. My Mum always says you can take the girl out the country but you can’t take the country out the girl.
I hope you had a great long weekend! Aside from realising I need colour Continue reading “Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 1: Cala de Sant Francesc And The Great Wall Of Girona”
