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!

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

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

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
