A rather amusing post by Dawniepopsies on How to be a Blogger. It made me chuckle!
I have been really ill this week and it's not been pleasant. I've not made it into work and I've literally spent about 80 hours in my bed. I'm a terrible patient. I hate being ill. But I was a weak, coughing and spluttering mess. My face hurt (sinuses) and my body is still aching. I managed to have a bath on Monday but I felt faint afterwards (maybe the heat?). I'm starting to feel a bit more like my normal self, and I managed out of the house to do the school & nursery runs without collapsing - but that's all I've managed.
So during my time in bed I have watched a number of YouTube videos including episodes of Grand Designs and I have discovered Lily Pebbles and Vivianna Does Makeup. They've kept me going!
Have you heard the news?
*sings* "I'm leaving on a jet plane... don't know when I'll be back again"*
Yes - the day has arrived. R is whisking me away to an unknown destination this evening for a long weekend. I'm assuming I'm going on a plane... I do know that I need a passport! My last holiday out of the country was in 2010.
I am super excited as you can all imagine, although travelling and being on a plane (or train, or bus) for ages is the last thing I want to do when I'm feeling under par. But I will paint on my happy face and I'm sure I'll have a lovely weekend. My bags will be packed with plenty Lemsip, ibuprofen and the like to see me through.
Not very much... but I think that's acceptable given that I've not been myself. You're lucky if I even made my bed (I didn't even do that!!).
At the start of the weekend, when I still felt like a human being, I was wearing my new Smashbox lip lacquer and I'm loving it. But since then I've been feeling, and looking, crap. I was even sporting a fashionable 'tissue-up-the-nose-to-stop-it-dripping' look (in front of R too!).
It's not long now until Christmas!! If you haven't already seen my gift guides, then do please have a peek. I'm quite proud of them!
Have a great weekend folks. Keep an eye on my Twitter (@glasgow_mummy) as I'll no doubt announce where I'm off to as soon as I find out myself!!
*not technically true as despite not knowing where we're going, I know we're back on Monday evening!
