Welcome to a long over due Weekend Friday Favourites. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently.
Excuses as to why I’ve been absent lately I’m blaming here on Mercury being in retrograde. That’s my excuse! Anyway I hope you’re having a great weekend and lets get into this week’s hopefully short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourites
Jata Hogar Mini Manual Chopper
Out shopping with ChefPaulGuru aka P a few months back he got all excited coming across this mini manual chopper. My face was probably really, you excited over this?! Before he was here for a few months I started making smashed chickpea and avocado salads. He said this would be perfect for chopping them up. It wasn’t that expensive, about €10 and knowing unless I had examples made I probably wouldn’t use it, made a few salads with it. It really is easy to use and I use it about Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
For my Birthday earlier this month I had no idea what to do. If I was on my own I’d have gone to the zoo usual for a Sunday. Surprise huh?! P’s here so he hired a car for the weekend. I knew I wanted to be outside somewhere along the coast, but where?!
The weather for the weekend kept changing from rain to sunny skies. From 22C to 19C. Searching for a place to go Calella de Parafrugell came up. It looked kinda cute plus it’s part of the Cami de Ronda, a former smugglers path along most of Costa Brava’s rugged coastline which we’re gradually walking parts of. Famous for its 9 coves and painted fishing huts Continue reading “Calella de Parafrugell and Llafranc”
I feel like everything at the moment is buy and must haves. Everywhere I look is buy and must haves. I’m thankful in an odd way for my climbing classes. They cost extra a month, but compared to what I no longer buy or tempted to buy as I’m in class saves a lot.
I used to grocery shop after the gym at my local mall which meant popping into the shops. Now I only have enough time after class and post class practice for a quick supermarket sweep. 10 minutes is sometimes all I get to look around the mall before racing to the supermarket before closing. It’s good tactic more so when sometimes I only get there with 10 minutes until closing. City Center Continue reading “March April Photos”
I can’t believe how quickly this year’s going. A quarter of the year’s done as April says hi. With that I hope you’re having or had a great weekend!
This week’s been a little crazy as I’ve lost my voice to squeaky whisper. I’ve no idea if that’s what it actually sounds like, but that’s what it sounds like in my head making me crack up every time I do talk. It’s thanks to allergies making me cough my throat’s so sore, hence no voice. I finally have allergy medicine that’s taken the edge off so I can breath better. It’s kinda funny hearing me squeak to a whisper! That’s until I start coughing, then I’m do I laugh or cough? Until it clears up, lots of hot drinks and toast. Toast is nice soothing the throat as much as hot liquids are easing it. But enough of woe me, here’s this week’s Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye the past 2 weeks.
Cork Yoga Mat
My workout mat needed replacing after a good few years use as it was sliding everywhere when doing any type of jumping. Not to mention from planks and mountain climbers bits of plastic were shedding. I’d been using my yoga mat as a substitute however for some reason I like to have a separate yoga mat and workout out. Wanting to find one that was less plastic and more easily recyclable cork mats Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
Happy New Year!
Sunset 1st Jan 2019
I hope you had an amazing time celebrating the New Year whether you were sleeping, partying or like me celebrating New Year’s Day soaking up the sun at the beach!
Like Christmas, ringing in the New Year was low key. Thanks to TVE1 en directo on my phone, the cats and I rang in the New Year watching the ball drop in Puerta de Sol Madrid snugged up warm. I just just managed to eat all 12 grapes in before the 12 campanadas finished. Just. Does having 1 or 2 left mid chew as you try to avoid choking on grape juice count?
I’m more New Year’s day than New Year’s Eve. I like to see the sunrise rise Continue reading “Intentions 2019”
