Diary chats - past the expiry date


I've wanted to write out a few blog posts on here for a while now, but I feel I've literally procrastinated so much that everything I had in my head is all a little expired and feels far too much in the past and past the fact even to be able to fill you in on the little bit's that have been happening here and there.

Especially when I do like my blog to be in the here and now, in the present.

My previous post about La Manga, again was posted completely past the fact. I had every intention on sharing our trip immediately after we got back, but again time just slipped away. Even though I have posted about it the other day, I admit myself that the post feels a bit bland and with not much oomph in it because I've literally written about it way past the expiry date.

I always say to Mark 'Oh I'm gonna pop that on my blog', but by the time I actually get round to do it it does feel the 'story or event is way to past it's expiry date to be of any interest or relevance anymore.

I really need to get myself into gear and update as soon as 'it' happens instead of always putting it off till tomorrow. As when that tomorrow comes it's all to late and is far too much in the past.

I also wanted to tell you ages ago about our move to the new house and the final renovations, but that was back in mid January so it all feels too late now and well, 'expired'.

I was hoping with the lockdown at the moment it would be the perfect opportunity to get back on the blog and up date on everything, but it just hasn't been the case.

I'm hoping that by writing this rambled post it kind of makes everything real and that I'm in someway committing myself to get off my backside and start updating and sharing things as soon as they happen.

That's the plan anyway!

I hope you're all keeping well during this very bizarre pandemic and remember it won't last forever.

Stay home and stay safe ♥

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

Morning Oats

If you're anything like me I'm always looking for the next healthy/weight-loss secret!  Something that I can easily incorporate into my lifestyle without it feeling like a diet or a chore. I've done 'diets' in the past, but now I'm more into the whole lifestyle change - I'm in it for the long run! A couple of things that I've been eating/drinking on a regular basis for easily the last six months, that I think has been the result of me being able to keep the lbs at bay and actually feel so much healthier. Just a simple change in my morning habits.  I'm talking breakfast here guys. So easy and simple. Something I've taken from the Dukan diet that I have done in the past.  That was to have oats for breakfast. With skimmed milk. Oats are a slow releasing carb, so they gradually fill you up which ultimately stops those mid-morning cravings. I have two generous spoonful's of oats in a bowl and mix with s
