My arm has started working again. Woo Hoo! Being the positive little thing that I am, I have decided that it was just a glitch and that maybe I shouldn't have carried that basket full of bananas... Very silly considering my fragile tendencies. Y'see when you're off to buy snack for 24 little ones and you're in a hurry, you tend to forget how heavy two dozen bananas are and don't bother taking a trolley...! So it was either that or the dog pulling - both very likely culprits.
So I'm following my Doctor's orders, being a good girl, and am off heavy duties of any kind for a month. No carrying, no lifting, no dog walking (rubbish!), no hoovering, no ironing.... Think I can handle that!
Now here's the thing! For a few days I felt so utterly rubbish that I went back to my happy place, my comfort zone. Black. And. Jeans. And a really funny thing happened, I didn't like it. At all. So, even though I'm far from 100% again I've picked myself back up and brought a little colour back. And what a strange coincidence that people think I look so much better!
Jeans look so much better with something pretty!
I got this top for my birthday last year. Wore it once then put in away. Why? Tis quite nice I think.
And this little top is a charity shop number from a few years back. Not worn it for years.
I bought this skirt for £1 a couple of weeks ago, it's a bit big, just sits on my hips and must admit makes me a bit nervous. Can just imagine it falling off (won't be the first time that's happened!) But it's pretty innit? Accompanied by my regulation dark half...!
And this is blurry because I'm a shocking photographer. I was at a Ceilidh tonight (not dancing, or drinking, was a blast...!) and wore this. My friend commented that I'd forgotten my jeans... Sarky!
And I wouldn't normally post a pic of my jammies, but this is to prove a point to myself. Even when I get home from work and instantly take to my bed for a couple of hours because my arm is KILLING ME. I feel better in something pretty. What a lovely mood lifter when you're doped up on painkillers!
Thank you for the lovely comments on my last Post, you all made me feel that little bit better. You really are a lovely bunch, thank you!
Be back soon!
