Blogging friends

Since hubs returned to work after the long weekend, the rest of the week has kinda dragged. Not sure why, as there was only 3 days left of it 'till the weekend again! Hey ho....

So, getting on with my housewife duties, I pretty much blitzed the house and even got that wretched pile of ironing done (which may I add, stayed sitting on the armchair all weekend, oops!) see last Thursdays post lol!

The rest of my time has pretty much been spent playing catching up with internet stuff and trying to keep the cats from killing each other. Yep, they're still not getting on, sad face. But we're hanging in there!

So, a pretty non-eventful week really, except for hubby nearly getting wiped out on the side of the motorway, as his tyre went flat and had a complete drama when changing the wheel! Now a little bit of background, hubs has been an Aircraft Engineer for 30 odd years and recently gone into management, so he is more then capable of changing a car tyre, but when he used the jack that comes with the car, a Dodge Charger 5.7 litre R/T (pretty big car, getting my drift) the bloody thing collapses! I'm no expert on these things, but even I would of thought the car companies would provide a jack that is suitable for the car it's in! Seriously, is it all just lip-service these days!! Anyway, hubs got it sorted as a couple of guys stopped and offered him their jacks... There are still some good people out there!

Other then car dramas nothing has really happened, until yesterday. Mark came home with a little package, that got delivered to his work for me! It was from my friend Steph, who writes the blog Priceless Life of Mine (which you should check out btw! click here!). We met through the blogosphere and have become firm friends. That's what I love about blogging, you meet so many lovely, like minded people from all over the world and friendships are instantly built. She sent me this gorgeous little plaque for our new home in Spain. A card and a lovely letter too. Seriously made my day! Thank you again Steph! I love it so much!

Happy Thursday guys!

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo

Choosing a name for your blog

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog. If you're debating on what name to choose for your

Restaurante Jardin, La Zenia, Spain

Last week after passing Restaurante Jardin for the last six years we actually got round to venturing in. And we are so pleased we did, the only regret is that it's taken us six years to do so! Located just off the Carretera de Villamartin roundabout near La Zenia's Mcdonalds and the Notary you'll find this gem of a restaurant. With a varied mix of Sushi, rice and noodles, teriyaki dishes, Bangkok style ribs, crispy beef, garlic prawns, to name just a few, they also have more simple items such as chicken balls (nuggets), fried cheese, mushrooms - which are very tasty and potato wedges. Even though Restaurante Jardin is an all you can eat buffet it is sit down table service, with a menu and your food is made to order. For €11.95 per person (€6.95 for children) we found it extremely good value for money. We had such a mix and didn't really have anything in any particular order. The dishes aren't huge, but still a decent size and I actually like them being
