Good good links #85

…. and the award for worst blogger of the week goes to … me. I know I said I’d be back on the blogging bandwagoon this week and I actually had a post drafted for Thursday. But then the internet stopped working altogether Wednesday night. We’ve been having some weird weather lately and for some odd reason that tends to influence ireception. Don’t ask me how that works – my technology knowledge doesn’t exceed 10th grade physics [if even that …]. Enough of the rambing, though. The bad reception cut down on my overall blog reading time but I still found some great posts worth sharing. Let me know if I missed any must-reads in the comments!

Happy Sunday! May the Easter bunny treat you generously!

Walking dates with friends, just catching some fresh air after a meal – walking is a fun and healthy way to keep moving [see first post in this category, too].


Good good [posts to make you smile]


Good good [food]

My mum and sister are huge fans of these sweet little tartelets  [called ‘pasteis de nata’  if I remember correctly].

Even though I’ve never had the original non-vegetarian dish I’ve heard people rave about it and this vegan adaption sounds great.


Happiness-inducing today:  Heading out for two long family walks in one day. I adore going for walks in nature in general but even more so in my childhood place and with people I love. Add in sunshine and it’s pure bliss.
