Happy New Year!
I can’t wait for a return to a sense of schedule and routine. P’s here for a few weeks, so generally when he’s here any sense of routine’s usually out. Plus side, I get lunches and dinners made for me! It doesn’t help here the Holiday festivities continue until the 6th January or Kings Day (Spain’s main present giving day). Everything at the moment is like a waiting game.To celebrate the New Year we opted for a series of hikes. New Years Eve we hiked part of the Carretera de les Aigues in Parc Collserola over looking Barcelona. Continue reading “New Year Hikes!”
I hope your week’s going okay. Apologies for not stopping by to say hi last week. The week went in a blur. I said see you later to my friend moving back to Australia with her growing family. Her big surprise before she left! I’ll miss her. We only just met this summer, following my trend of making friends only for one of us to leave within a year. I’m happy for her, yet I know I’m going to miss her loads.

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”
Last Thursday was Fiesta Nacional de Espana or Christopher Columbus day marking his arrival in Las Americas aka a public holiday!
P was back for a few days so that meant trips outside the city. During the summer on the first day of his motorbike camping trip, his route took him through Montserrat National Park. He made a note to go Continue reading “Montserrat National Park”
If anyone braved the now global madness of Black Friday, I hope you’ve recovered. Thanks to amazon.com introducing it to the UK a few years ago, Spain followed last year. Last year I shopped online and popped by my local shopping centre an hour before closing (almost empty) so I’ve no idea if the madness I encountered Friday in the city centre was anything like last year.
I only wanted to look in 2 shops and both were chockablock Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
