A few Saturdays ago I had some errands to run in El Borne, so I thought I’d take you along!
El Borne’s always changing. Every time I cycle or walk through El Borne, facades remain the same, interiors constantly changing. Always new cafes, ice cream palours, boutiques, bars popping up. I used to live in the area and while I don’t miss living in their, I still love cycling through or wandering down alleyways, peeking up at balconies, soaking in it’s charm. Sadly or maybe not Continue reading “El Borne Tales”
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!”
When Mr AJ (cat) lets you snuggle up to him taking a break editing, Weekend Friday Favourites is a little late. Like 3 weeks late. He’s a cat that likes things on his terms so if you snuggle up to him, fall asleep rather than the other way round it’s an honour. His brother, Mr D takes any extra body heat he can get so he’s not too fussed if you snuggle up, which in its own way is an honour. That both trust you enough to let you snuggle up, tickle tummies while they sleep.Duck Barcelona Zoo
Weekend Friday Favourites is back after a little hiatus. I actually started this Weekend Friday Favourites 3 Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
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!”
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”
