The weekend

So this weekend went super quick! To be honest we didn't have any plans, no fancy Halloween parties to go to, no urge to go out on the town, but that was absolutely fine with us. It was one of those, easy, relaxed weekends, where we were more then happy just to 'chill'.

Friday we sat out in the sun for a little bit, did the grocery shop and of course had the customary Starbucks before hand, but I did manage to resist the cake, only just mind!

With it being Halloween we watched The Purge, Anarchy. Now, I know it's not a horror, but I hate horror films, I get so scared (I know, I'm a wimp, haha!) and also with films along the same lines as The Purge. But I loved it! I think Mark was surprised I suggested watching it and secretly happy that he didn't have to endure another 'chick flick', LOL!

Saturday we chilled out at the pool for a while before being rained off! Arghhhhhhhhhhhh! Seriously it's a nightmare when it rains here, it's so depressing. Luckily, it didn't last for too long. The rain cleared, but the sky was still looking moody, so we thought we'd go for a little walk. We ended up down at Al Hamra Marina and stopped at Tuscano coffee for a latte. It's officially my new favourite place for coffee! The latte was soooo good and sitting outside, overlooking the marina, picking which boat we'd have, lol, it was a perfect end to a lovely chilled weekend.

Not forgetting my beautiful baby Lily falling asleep on my chest in the evening. My arm went dead, but I couldn't bring myself to disturb her! Haha...

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

This isn't just a one off trip either. It is for, well, the foreseeable future, for as long as they'll have us anyway.  If you follow my social media,  Instagram  and  Twitter  you've probably picked up on the fact that we have relocated to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The gist of the reason is that my husband was offered a fantastic position out there and to be honest after trying out semi-retirement and with the whole pandemic thing where we've (all) been extremely restricted we were itching for another adventure. We also never realised how much we missed the Middle East.  Previously we had five years out in the UAE, living in Abu D
