Morning walk - Al Hamra Village


Up mega early this morning. 4.30am the alarm went off, Ouch!

It reminded me of my flying days, having to get up and ridiculous o'clock for early morning ski flights in the winter months. I'm telling ya, you should only have to get up in the middle of the night, if you're catching a flight for your holidays, that is the only time it's fun and acceptable lol! Any other reason feels like torture!

Anyway, Mark had to get up early as a busy day ahead and things to do places to go and all that jazz! So being the good wife I am, I made him his cuppa and waved him off into the dark morning.

Even though it was still early, I'm one of those people that when I'm up, I'm up. I very rarely take myself back off to bed and if I do, I just get side tracked and end up watching T.V or just playing on my phone.

After my second cup of tea I was feeling surprisingly awake, so as soon as it got light, I put my trainers on and took myself for a walk. In the mornings I usually just walk around the golf course, but today I headed off down towards the Marina. It was so beautiful, still and calm, the odd person around. Very peaceful. The temperature is perfect now in the mornings.








Must admit I really enjoyed today's walk. It's definitely the start of a new routine!

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

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

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
