Good morning, good morning!


I hope everyone's had/having a fab weekend. As you know, Sunday is the start of the week here in the UAE, as Friday and Saturday are our weekends. I've packed hubby off to work and I'm catching up with emails etc over a cup of green tea before I embark on my usual Sunday, of blitzing the house from top to bottom! #domesticgoddess

We had a fantastic end to our weekend. After a great shopping day Friday. We sat out in the sun on Saturday for a couple of hours, then went and checked out the new coffee shop that's opened up near us, at Al Hamra Marina, called Tucano Coffee. As it was still the middle of the day and blazing sunshine we went for a very calorific milkshake each! I went for the Vanilla m&m's and hubby had the Chocolate m&m's. They were lovely with loads of cream on top! But, the m&m's were peanut, a bit disappointing, as we're not a fan, so next time we'll opt for them without! Still it was lovely sitting out overlooking the marina.


In the evening we had the best email come through from Spain. Pictures of our finished house. OMG! It looks amazing! We're so happy its crazy. The whole of the outside has be re-rendered and repainted with a new colour and looks gorgeous. The new kitchen has been fitted and that looks soo good. We're itching to get back over now to see it for real.

So, all in all a fab weekend for us. Oh and Chelsea won last night, so hubby was extra happy!

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
