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 ♥

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

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
