Feeling Sorry for myself

I was just thinking to myself the other day how I haven't been ill for ages. So then illness decided to teach my smug self a lesson. And here I am. It hit me so suddenly that I had to abandon my car in a not so cool way outside my house because I couldn’t see what I was doing from my watery blurry eyes. Better to let the neighbours think I’m a numpty car parker than having to tell them I’ve made a dent in their precious wheels…

I stayed in bed this morning for as long as I could. But then the neighbours decided that 7.30 am on the one day I want to stay in bed is the best time to get cavity wall insulation or something. Which would be less annoying if our houses had cavity walls, which Mr D informs me they do not. Hmmm seems like someone is being had.


At least the sun is shining, which makes anyone feel a bit better. Then I found in the tin that is the drugstore of the house had some cold & flu drugs which actually have made my face ache not so much. And there was Albas Oil. Oh happy days for my nose. After being with me for 23 years, I’m thinking Mr D won’t mind me smelling like an old woman?

Postie has just brought me Frankie Magazine from my wonderful friend on the other side of the world Luan of Green Tea and Cupcakes.  I’ve heard of this magazine and am soooo excited to have one!  Also in my mail box was sweet note from Kylie at Lucy Violet Vintage.  I also really need to model this skirt she sent me ages ago, just waiting for the right time to show it off to you all..


Kylie made it from a vintage pillow case how cool is that?

Sometimes its just like they know.

Perhaps if I feel better I will get to replying to the pile of mail I have. I know I’m behind a bit.

Have a great day!



  1. I hope you are feeling better by now, and that in no time you will be back to your old self :).

  2. You poor thing! I'm just getting over a horrible cold myself, so I know how you feel. Make sure you rest up and drink LOTS of tea :)
