Five on Friday: things I’m loving right now

It’s Friday and that means it is time for another five on Friday post. To be honest, though, I may not continue posting them regularly because I am rather busy this month and then we’re going to Spain for a couple of weeks in June (yay!) so I might reduce blogging to a minimum. Life is for living, right?

The weather changed drastically this week and we went from sunny hot days to rainy chilly ones. And as a result I ha a sore throat for most of the week and now it’s my daughter’s turn to be sickish. But we’ll get through it. And here are five things that definitely help.



I LOVE strawberries! They’re probably my favourite fruit and I’m always happy when they make their entrance in the produce aisle of the supermarket. In fact, I think the world would be a better place is there were strawberries all year round.


Dining al fresco

We had a rather large balcony and every now and then, weather permitting, we take our dinner out and enjoy a meal outside. The children love it!


Homemade flavoured water

If I had to choose a favourite drink it would be water (tea would be a close runner-up). I drink mostly water during the day and only seldom I drink fruit juice or milk and never sodas or carbonated drinks. Ever. Recently I have been mixing things up and adding a slice of lemon and some mint leaves to a jug of cold water and it tastes amazingly good. Plus it brings me nice memories of my favourite tea room in Dublin where water was served just like that in a vintage jug.


Dresses and light clothes

After wearing a black coat over black trousers and cardi for most of the winter I am more than happy to add some colour and variety to my wardrobe. It really cheers me up and I feel lighter when I’m not coated in one or two kilos of winter gear. Okay, I may be exaggerating a little; it is not that cold anymore around here. But really, I feel much more cheerful since I can put on my ballet flats on and wear a dress.


BBQ season

I’m not that much into BBQ or even into big chunks of meat these days BUT barbecue time means that my boyfriend will be doing most of the cooking while I only need to boil some potatoes, make a dressing and relax.Β  And that’s what most Saturdays is going on around here.

Are you a spring/summer person? Anything special you do at this time of the year?

Happy weekend!

    1. Oh, that sounds like a great weekend πŸ™‚
      We’ve also been enjoying the nice weather and I’m glad we did because it has been raining since yesterday around here. There’s even been a couple of storms last night!
