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 ♥

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

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

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
