I am ill.

I don’t have tonsillitis, I have a chest infection. I have no voice, a bad cough, a streaming cold and I look like shit.

I hate being ill. I haven’t been off sick for over a year! I went in today after my doctors appointment, I lasted just over 4 hours before I was sent home. I don’t think I’ll be in tomorrow. I’ll be here, at home, feeling sorry for myself.

Interview Me

If you head over to Lass’s blog, you’ll see she had a meme up, and Ivolunteered for said meme. So as I lie here on my sick bed (I think I have tonsilitis *sob*), I will do said meme.

1) What is your favorite article of clothing? How long have you had it, and do you think you can ever part with it?

It goes without saying that it’s my wedding dress, and no, I’d never part with it, but…..In my day to day wear, my favourite item is my cream, thick cotton hoodie. I’ve had it about 4 years now I think, and I love it to bits. It’s comforting!

2) What is the most romantic thing your hubs has ever done for you?

I have to say that hubby and I aren’t very good at the whole romantic thing. But the most romantic night was our first valentines together. We’d only been together two weeks. I went round to his and he’d put a huge bunch of flowers on the bed for me and he cooked, but he’d set the table with candles and confetti hearts and stuff. It was really nice.

3) If you had just five minutes to speak with any one historical person (currently deceased) and tell them something that would save their life, who would it be and why?

I’d save Princess Diana. I still say it was a conspiracy and that she was murdered. I’d tell her not to get into that car and to spend the night where she was.

4) If you had 50,000 pounds, and you couldn’t spend any of it on yourself or any immediate family member, what would you do with the money?

I’d split it. I’d give half to Cancer Research and the rest I’d divvy up between my friends I think.

5) If you could take a trip to outer space, would you? Why or why not?

Yes I would. Just to experience the whole no gravity thing. I think it’d be ace. I’d also be able to see if aliens really do exist!

Here are the rules:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Just so you can see how bad it is….

….this is my kitchen


See, I’m not blowing it out of proportion, it REALLY IS shit. And it won’t be complete for another 6-8 weeks.

Does anyone want to invite us round for dinner?

Stressed Out

I am extremely stressed out. I have no kitchen, no worktops, no cooker, no oven. I don’t even have a ceiling. This whole getting a new kitchen thing isn’t as good as I thought it might be.

That’s what I’m living in. We’re in the process of emptying the kitchen so we can start ripping it out. Frankie has discovered she can get under the units! So the sooner they’re out the sooner she won’t be able to. I feel like we’ve turned a corner with her this weekend. Don’t get me wrong, she’s still a cheeky minx! She’s going for her first trip to the vets tomorrow. She’s really grown in the last week! We’ve had loads of visitors, but they havent come to see us, they’ve come to see her.

Some little git stole my mobile phone on Saturday night from my pocket. I’m not too bothered about the phone to be honest, I’m insured and I get my new one tomorrow, it’s just the hassle of losing all my numbers and the sentimental value of the pictures that were on there. I just don’t understand why they’d bother. I mean, the first thing I did was get a bar put on it, so they couldn’t use it. And it’s not just the SIM that’s blocked, it’s the IMEI number, which means the phone is worthless!

It’s my three month review on Thursday. I’m quite nervous. positive thoughts are needed my way!!

Devil Woman

Frankie has been with us since Sunday. She’s settled in really well and is generally pretty good. But I swear, there is something evil about her!!

She’ll be 7 weeks old tomorrow, so she is still really young, and I already taught her how to sit. I love her to bits, but what I don’t like is the crying at 3am!! We’ve been getting up in the early hours to let her out for a wee and a poo, but after she’s done that, all she wants to do is play! We’ve got her a cage, and last night was the first night she spent in it on her own, and didn’t we know about it! *Sorry neighbours* She whined and she whimpered for at least an hour! I’ve been and bought some ear plugs today in the hope of a better night’s sleep.

The cage isn’t to be cruel. In fact, at first we were in two minds about it, but everyone I spoke to and all the books told me to get one. They lie.

Just like the book warned me that she’d bite us when playing (and boy does she have sharp teeth), but to combat it, yelp when she does it and move your hand away and gradually the bites will get softer and softer until she doesn’t bite at all. That’s just bollocks. It doesn’t work at all!!

 Saying all that though, she is beautiful and I do love her to bits. She comes and snuggles up next to me and falls asleep and she follows me round.

She’s ace!
