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.

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 (more…)

First Week Of Autumn Fall 2017

Last weekend saw La Merce. A 4 day celebration of one of Barcelona’s patron saints with events held across the city including one of my favourite events here, Correfoc! A chance to run with dragons, fireworks and chase devils! It’s completely crazy and I don’t know of anywhere else where you can run under fireworks spinning above your head! 

Anyways, a weekend and week catch up the following weekend because why not?

Backtracking to last Friday, the first day of autumn fall… (more…)

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Mine hasn’t gone quite as planned. I spent Saturday evening trying to find a pharmacy open that had AJ’s the cat’s medicine. 17km or 27km cycling including a trip to the park before, finding one, mistaking a turning coming back and appreciating people who help, later AJ has his medicine. No thanks from him. Medicine isn’t up there with breakfast or dinner. 

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, a round up of things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week. Feel free to share what’s been making you smile recently in the comments! (more…)
