1 Month Until Spring!

I’ve forgotten how warm sunshine feels like on my skin. I’ve been huddled in layers for weeks and I’m more than craving feeling some sun rays. I think the cats are too. They’ve got all the morning sun spots down. When the sun moves away from the apartment they switch to being snuggled up in blankets. They won’t have to wait long for warm sunshine longer than a few hours or an apartment that’s warm during the day. The countdown to Spring’s on. Less than 5 weeks to go!

Finally a moment to say hi! I’ve finished my 2 week beginner indoor climbing classes. I’ve really enjoyed them and am hoping continuing them. A real rock face I’ll probably shit myself and be ropes please Continue reading “1 Month Until Spring!”

Snow in the City

It was snowing in the skies above Barcelona yesterday! And fell as ice pellets or USA sleet (sleet in the UK is a mix of rain and snow). The last time it snowed in Barcelona was I think in February or March 2010. It turned into slush before the day was out. I had to walk nearly half the city back as the metro came to a standstill. My feet froze walking back to my bike, then my hands froze to the handlebars pushing it back!

Thankfully yesterday it had stopped by the time I left to cycle in. I thought it had all melted so you can imagine my surprise and big dopey grin when I saw the beaches had a light dusting of snow ice. One of the few places where it hadn’t melted. Even a few TV Continue reading “Snow in the City”

Sunrises, Trees, Monkeys And Catch Up

Happy February!

Winter’s back! I always forget February gives January a run for it’s money here in which month’s the coldest. February’s short and sweet, but it packs a punch in rainy, windy, grey overcast, sunny cold days.

Next week I start my indoor climbing classes. I’ve never done anything like it before apart from climbing trees as a kid so I’m a little nervous and excited. I’m scaling down my gym workouts next week so I have energy. I know it’s probably a workout in itself, however I’m what if the first class is just theory? I won’t get my fix.

Anyways, last week when by in a blur and I didn’t get a change to stop by and say Hi Continue reading “Sunrises, Trees, Monkeys And Catch Up”

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

I hope you’re having a great weekend! I was meant to start wrapping Christmas presents and those cards I wish I didn’t have to do but are expected this weekend. In true Nat style everything’s sitting unwrapped and unwritten before my last self imposed shipping day next Wednesday. I seem to work better with a little bit of pressure, leaving things to the last minute. I think my Mum’s the same. I still have to find an outfit for next week’s Buff Epic Run a costume, untimed obstacle race. I’ve had about 6 weeks already to come up with an idea. No pressure.

In keeping with last minute, I’m writing this late Sunday evening. Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile this week or caught my eye. Please share in the comments below what’s been making you smile recently or caught your eye!  Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
