Weekend Friday Favourites

Welcome to another Weekend Friday Favourites! I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Apologies for the gap in Weekend Friday Favourites. Some of you many know Spain has one of the strictest Covid-19 lockdowns in Europe. Translation unless an essential worker you could only leave your house for the supermarket, bank, doctors or work. 7 weeks of not being allowed outside unless a bike ride to the supermarket or bakers lead me to dark place. It’s not the worst dark place I’ve found myself in. Maybe, a different room of darkness. Add a huge birthday this month of a new decade for a girl it’s all downhill. Thankfully the Spanish government last weekend has allowed us out to exercise. We have times slots based on age and I can’t tell you how good it feels being able to freely within reason run and cycle. To see the sea up close again, feel open space, see flowers, birds and other people with happy faces. Hopefully in a week Catalunya can move into phase 1 of a little more freedom as restrictions are eased.

Freedom Flowers. 1st bike ride in 7 weeks!

I’m also getting up early too! We’re only allowed out once day for exercise within the 2 time slots. I’ve chosen the mornings between 06.00-10.00 as I’m guaranteed daylight and sunshine. The other time slot is 20.00-23.00 however 21.00 it starts to get dark. I need all the sunshine and vitamin D I can get.

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently. Please feel free to comment below what’s been making you smile recently! 

Mike Peele Hip-Hop Fit

As I was unable to run, on run days I did Popsugar Fitness Dance workouts. Most trainers are guest hosts with links to their own YouTube or fitness businesses. I took a Mike Peele’s Hip-Hop Dance Workout and really enjoyed it. Seeing if he had more classes of his own on YouTube he does!

August’s Here

I’m happy sad August’s here. Happy the heat’s set in, days are sunny, the sea’s warm enough to cool off in. Sad, after being away on holiday vacay, yes I got away only as the cats with their multiple medicine came too, I’ve really noticed the days getting shorter.

We stayed in Spain along the Costa Blanca where the sun rose a little later than Barcelona yet set later. Noting sunset’s time checking the weather app then cycling back at dusk, the sun now sets what seems like 30 minutes earlier than it did before going away. Continue reading “August’s Here”

Birthday Month Adventures

It’s been so long since I last said hi, I don’t know where to start! I’ll take it from the middle with the 8th and 12th May, with 2 birthdays celebrations. AJ’s and mine! The most important one of course was Mr Aj’s 16th. The Yogi Cat, Zen Master’s all grown up! Okay, he was all grown up about 14 years ago. Happy Birthday Angelous aka, Mr AJ!

Aj lucked out with morning sunny skies, mine I was back in a thermal top. My usual birthday wish is to spend time at the beach. Continue reading “Birthday Month Adventures”

Spring’s Here!

Happy Belated International Woman’s Day!

Spring’s here early! My winter coat’s waiting in the laundry wings to be put away until next winter (might be a little too eager saying that and jinx it) and I’m gradually switching out layers for lighter layers. Trees are getting their green on and the days are getting noticeably longer! YAY! Lighter mornings and the sun higher in the sky make a huge difference to my mood. Continue reading “Spring’s Here!”

YouTube Players

I’ve been wanting to do a YouTube favourites post for a while but haven’t been able to find a way of conveying it. I think this is because it’s mostly ‘influnencers’ and because of this it comes across full of consumerism. Occasionally they might sway me into buying something but I feel mainly as their lifestyles are completely out my budget, that I’m vegan (yep, vegans have to tell everyone in the 1st 30 seconds they’re one. Insert roll eye emoji), am trying to reduce plastic and recycling and trying to having less stuff in general keeps me in check.images

You’d think there would be a lot of animal channels seeing as how much I love animals. There are a few though I’ve noticed while I follow many of the following YouTubers on Instagram, more animal accounts pop up on my IG feed than my YouTube feed. This I’m happy about otherwise I’d be completely bombarded with look at me in my new shoes, look at my new bag! The animal recuses, animal and nature photos on IG keep in me check. I’m happy to keep Continue reading “YouTube Players”
