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.
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. 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?
