Have I mentioned that at all, this week, to you?
I say "we" but I have to credit to Mark for lifting and shifting whilst I just point and go "ug" for yes and "blech" for no. We took great delight in making use of cut price bedroom sliding wardrobe doors in the sale at Homebase with an extra 10% off the lot to boot. This meant a shift in colour options from lime and choc to caramel and choc - still, they are equally edible and that's what counts. We (as in just Mark but "we" all the same) have had to shift all our belongings out of our bedroom into the kitchen dining area as the game of chess continues on hunting out more space. Our mattress is on the floor, there is furniture piled in every spare room plus Belles bedroom furniture, bed and carpet has still NOt arrived. The house is literally upside down. As I have chosen "tolerance" to be my word of 2008, I think Im bearing up. I feel like celebratin!
This afternoon saw me beaten to death so I took a retreat to bed to sweat out the last of this stinking bronchial flu (its obviously the most serious kind becuase, as I have stated before, I am really really ill. Look.....>> ugh, blech, ouch, yicky wicky woo). Mark woke me up for my Bangers and Mash tea (not dinner, we are northern trollops who say what we like and we like what we bloody well say) and in the process of waking up he noted that all my hair had stuck to my neck and face. I really HAD sweated the damn thing out. I topped up the sweat-out with a bath and I feel GREAT. However, Im having trouble hacking up the last of the lung butter but I suspect that endless cups of tea and swigs of Benylyn (YUCK) will clear that out.
On my web travels this avvo I had some further delight to hear my necklace is ready. Let me tell you the story behind this baby. I initially wanted this but at $298, I felt it was a tad hideous to be adorning my neck with such expensive bling.
Beautiful it is really but I had a better idea. I just happen to know a very very talented jewellery maker, Anilu, who fashioned me an "even betterer" necklace inspired by the original and will work on commissions in superfast time (like 2 days!!). As I am a silver lover anyway, I asked her to switch the chain colour, shorten it by half and make it more personal to me and here is what she made me.
She made this for me at an agreeable fraction of the cost (do check out her ETSY shop) and a note to Mark: You are buying me it for my b'day! Im skipping a happy dance in my snot infested personal circle!
