Another week has gone by, with little to write home about. Mainly have stayed at home, and allowed myself to go on a few walks. Have been hit by the dreaded fatigue and worried a lot about lots of goings on. I can’t believe how quickly this week has passed.
My week started well, with my favourite bright smoothie (orange, carrot and ginger) to brighten my mood. I then had to go to the doctors and then onto the beach with my little chap. I can’t quite believe we are in february. I was sweating and it was over 20 degree’s!
Lots of squirrelling away in my little studio and on my kitchen table drawing like a fiend. Its my little escape.
Walks and walks. Keeping it fairly local (bad knee and back) and enjoying the bashed up, industrial area that I am currently living it. It looks so scrappy from the outside but you soon appreciate its charms after a while. There are also some great studios dotted around here. Often when out and about in Barcelona you are scurrying around like a little ant and its good and refreshing to sometimes take a look up and appreciate your surroundings and interesting things you may well miss. Such as good patterns, colours and tree skeletons.
A trip to the centre and trying to remember to keep in mind the phrase “don’t forget to look up”. Such beautiful buildings all around. And funny interesting things like a little weird tree shed thing attached to the building. The mind boggles.
Criss crossing through the streets that are El Borne. Its like a maze here!
Finding sweet little shops/workshops along the way.
Quick! Take my picture (queue awkward posing- eyes closed and all!)
Visiting art and craft fairs and spying secret ally way’s.
Good colours and pretty buildings.
And a trip to the market.
That was my week. Tired, not very busy but grateful to get out of the flat a bit and explore for a few hours. More of the same next week!
