Early Spring Sunshine

Spring’s here early and I’ve caught the cliche Spring Cleaning. Maybe it’s the change of light that’s making a few things look tired and faded or the light’s making things look different and in need of change. Whichever one, I’ve been switching and moving things around in the apartment, having a mini KonMari Method clean out and feeling change of happier energy in general. Cliche I know! Spring’s always a wake up season after a season of hibernating so maybe I’ve caught that energy and have a whole host of ideas I want to get moving.

Living in a city you don’t notice seasonal changes as much. Grey becomes a different tone of lifeless grey. Continue reading “Early Spring Sunshine”

Weekend Friday Favourites

Nothing all week then, 2 posts in 1 day. Let’s just say someone made time to do something else she loves other than working out and sorting out that pile of books that’s been building up. 

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Once again I’m left on a Sunday wondering where the week went. It went by with its usual workouts, runs, cleaning up after the cats (do all male species miss aim peeing?), catching up with friends and working on a better routine. I’ve identified where non productive time goes vs chores, Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Weekend Friday Favourites

My thoughts are with those caught up and those lost on Thursdays horrific events in Barcelona on Las Ramblas. My beautiful adopted city turned upside down in a matter of moments. Thankfully all my friends are okay. I also want to thank the emergence services and the Mossos d’Esquadra for their rapid response and amazing work. #totsomBarcelona #notincpor #notenimpor

I hope you’re having a great weekend! This week went by in a flash and I didn’t find many moments to stop by to say hi. It can get a Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Cheeky Parakeets

Every time I see one of Barcelona’s many cheeky parakeets a massive smile’s plastered on my face. Maybe it’s how they use the streets as arial streets, the flash of green as they fly by that does it. Maybe it’s how growing up in the English country side, tropical islands, animals and birds were only found in books, on TV or in day dreams. Our neighbour had peacocks which was as tropical as it got.

I’m not sure how colonies started appearing throughout Spain. Legend has it some escaped from shipping crates at the port or airport back in the mid 70’s. Continue reading “Cheeky Parakeets”

Weekend Friday Favourites

I read about people saying they have mum guilt, leaving kids going to work and feeling guilty for leaving them, but does anyone else experience cat mum or cat you’re my human guilt? I swear it’s legit. My cats can be sound asleep for a few hours yet 10 minutes before I leave they start to get active, want attention, food, give me looks that make me feel bad I’m daring to leave. 9 times out of 10 without fail they do it. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
