Happy 4th Day of Christmas


Happy 4th day of Christmas! Is this another Star Wars holiday? If not it should be ๐Ÿ˜…

You’ve probably heard me saying this before on the blog but we don’t exchange gifts in Spain until the 6th January so we are still shopping and celebrating here. Oh and the sales don’t start until after 3 Kings Day.

May the gifts be with you

My parents watched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom today. I remember seeing it at the cinema with E. It was probably one of the last times we went to the cinema haha. Anyway, we also got a few things done in the house, my Dad fixed it so we now have power on our roof garden, so when we eventually get garden furniture, I’ll be able to work from my laptop outdoors.

Speaking of outdoors, I’m just loving being outside (safely and away from people) we just went for a lovely al fresco coffee and carrot cake. Now we have to wear the masks all the time outdoors so the only time we can feel the air on our face outside is if we are sitting at a terraza or on our roof garden. To be fair I’ve mostly kept mine on even when the rule relaxed a little because I follow the science and not the politicians.

Regarding health and fitness, I’ve been going on walks playing Pokemon Go but not had a real workout with my fitness games. I decided December would be a more relaxed month, with my parents visiting and the holidays but I still managed to complete the Apple Watch December challenge so I’m happy about that. The Ring Fit Adventure Club challenge returns on Saturday 1st January which sounds far off but it’s just days away.

Today they announced that the 40-49 year olds can book their 3rd vaccines, so that’s something I have to organize this week. It’s not 6 months since my second vaccine yet so I guess I’ll have to wait a couple of weeks anyway.


On This Day 2019

I am completely burnt out. We have been on a rollercoaster with Rambo‘s health since September. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

On This Day 2018

My Fitbit Blaze is acting up. Charge is not lasting despite cleaning the contacts several times. ๐Ÿ™ƒ I have it on the bare minimum, no notifications, no heart rate, brightness down, no alarms. It’s suddenly not keeping charge. I usually get 5 days out of the battery but only getting one day at the moment before it’s flat, no email reminder either.

On This Day 2017

This little parrot was sitting at our window this morning with a cheeky look in his eye. (We later learned this was because he was leaving a poop on the shutters) ๐Ÿ˜…

A quick google shows he is a blue Quaker parrot, his feathers were a beautiful turquoise and he flew off after a while with a happy squawk! We named him Azul which is blue in Spanish. As far as we know he’s a wild birdie, we usually see green ones flying about and they live at the tops of palm trees. This is the first blue one we’ve seen. ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜

  • Huge thank you to Katy Colins for writing The Lonely Hearts Travel Club book series which I’m enjoying so much. (I was giggling so much at the Taj Mahal antics the other night!). I just bought Destination Chile, can’t wait to go on another adventure!
  • I got a Dot Creates blog planner for Christmas, it’s amazing! Also using a Leuchtturm1917 for blog and home to do lists and a Mr Wonderful agenda for my personal diary.
  • Rambo tends to look anywhere except for the camera when I’m taking his photo. ๐Ÿ˜… Before he went blind in one eye I used to bribe him with a tennis ball next to my phone. ๐Ÿ’–

On This Day 2016

The free PS Plus games for January are Day of the Tentacle Remastered and This War of Mine: The Little Ones. I already purchased DOTT and it’s taking me ages to finish. So much backlog!

On This Day 2014

Anyone else getting rid of all the chocolate and treats so they can ‘start as they mean to go on’ Monday morning? ๐Ÿ˜… I’m currently in jeans, maybe pjs would be the better option after devouring half a big bar of Cadbury choc jelly popping candy!

On This Day 2013

In bed at 6pm – hoping a super early night sorts me out!
