Canary Islands Day

Happy Canary Islands Day 🇮🇨

Feliz día de Canarias! Today we celebrate everything Canarian and it’s a big Bank Holiday weekend here. That usually means we stay away from the beach or resorts (especially this year), if you also live in a tourist area you know why. 😂

Canary Islands Flag Donut Dunkin
I can still taste this!

A few years ago I celebrated with this Canary Islands flag donut from Dunkin, it was marvellous. I’m not eating donuts at the moment so I’m just going to stare at this sugary treat instead. Hah!

I’ve been building up on my cycling each day and I’m finally back at 35 minutes after a bit of a slump. I was only able to do 15 minutes but I’m working on it as part of my Fit By 40 Challenge. I’ll be able to get back on Ring Fit Adventure now I’ve built myself up a bit.

Small Rant About That Fan Art of Aloy from HZD

Someone on Twitter basically said that Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn wasn’t ‘pretty enough’ and that a fan made image of her was way better than how she looks in-game. I thought this was so stupid as the fan image was makeup perfect with perfect eyebrows, foundation and lipstick.

Because of course Aloy has time for a full face of makeup while fighting Sawtooths and living off the land. They even got rid of her scar FFS! Hold on there Strider, let me just nip to Sephora in Mother’s Heart real quick…. *face palm* Aloy is a hunter and lives in the wild. Leave her alone.

On This Day 2020

I went to the supermarket for first time since March last week and it was a bit nerve wracking but glad they were doing individual temperature checks. I can’t get my head round why they didn’t make masks compulsory in public spaces over in the UK. We wear ours for walks too.

    • Goodbye old blog design – see you on the other side!
    • 2 and a half hours in and I still have a way to go. If you are looking for something on my blog + the link doesn’t work, let me know.
    • Bahah one of my old blog posts is titled ‘Giant Locust Attack’ 😂
    • Tired from website stuff so I went out for a 30 minute power walk. It did the trick.
  • Watching
    • The 100 even has its own smoke monster? I’m getting so many LOST feels. I’m really liking it so far (episode 3) getting far too attached to the characters and they are starting to die. I feel like there is going to be a ‘Not Penny’s boat’ situation and I will crumble. 😭
    • Sherlock: “Do people actually read your blog?” I fangirl hard whenever John’s blog is mentioned haha.
