...and I am still here. Hey thanks for wishing me well, I was actually only crook for a few days (poohs and spews) but I am back to fighting fit, well not fit really, to be honest, quite unfit, but WELL again. Now this house is overflowing with Man Flu!!! Of course I cannot catch it as I am not a man!! But to be on the safe side cut onions are being strategically placed around the house and I am drinking Vitamin C and Echinacia boost bombs.
We are down to one foster kitten now as dear Mr Dylz went in for his op on Monday. Little Miss Sushi is such a shy little thing so a lot of handling has been happening this week. She is well now but still loves being wrapped and snuggled and I don't mind it one bit.
I wore my new to me $4 shoes that I found last week on Monday and let me tell you, they are so comfortable, but then again, they are Hispanitas, a Spanish brand. Kind of a reddish pink colour that just went well with all the other colours I threw on that morning.
Turns out that Big is a lap cat after all and you so know he is on your lap, especially when he starts to prod. He has been spending more time indoors these last few days as it has been cooler, with a few favourite spots to snooze in having been selected personally by himself.
Two of my favourite things in the garden are in abundance, my Daphne and Lemons. I love taking a bunch of Daphne to work to go on my desk. Oh and the lemons are so good in hot water and honey to soothe sore throats.
Our old Peach Tree is covered in Lichen and Moss, such magical stuff, I keep looking for the Fairies that I am sure are living in the garden.
Of course we have had a few more wet days, well it is supposed to be Winter and Rain is a byproduct of the Season. I am constantly fascinated with water droplets that get left behind and wet cobwebs, the one above was in a bucket full of water.
Orange, Black and White with Spots happened for me on Wednesday, a cold, wet, down right miserable arse sort of day. I was thankful to be at work inside with a heater on.
Oscar was on the whiffy side of things so I gave him a hair cut and a bath. Poor little dude was rather cold after his little poof and pamper session so I went and bought him a jersey. He isn't overly excited about my choice but he is warm.
"I am a DOG not a doll!!"
Sheba has found her inner mother and has taken a shine to Sushi. I think it is because she is so quiet where all the other kittens have been full on and quite confusing to Sheba. All I know is it is real cute to watch.
Thursday was bloody cold thank you very much. Lucky I have nice long coats to slap on over what ever I end up wearing. Coats and Boots are my Winter Jam! I haven't been to the op shops much of late, there hasn't been much on offer that has made me go wow. But on Friday I did call into the SPCA shop en route to Sue Ws place, as I was being her rural delivery mail person.
This sweet little, and I mean little, apron was only $2. I did also find and buy a merino long cardy/jacket and a nana coat. I call it a nana coat because it is taupe, a colour I associate with being a nana, that and powder blue. Apart from being Taupe, it was only $8, brand new and perfect for cold afternoons on the sideline at rugby. In fact I wore it today and it did the job perfectly, nana coat or not I was warm!
Speaking of rugby, that is the spare getting his face pushed into the earth. Another good game sadly resulting with a loss to his team. They were coming second in their division but after today this won't be the case. Never mind, there is always next season. Glass half full, that's me.
This is what I ended up wearing today and to his game. I am not the traditionally dressed rugby mum on the sideline, but today I tried my best and wore a pair of jeans. I am not really a jeans person these days, when I was a couple of dress sizes smaller I occasionally wore them. These are nana jeans!! Elasticated top!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Seriously comfy for the job required, and far too long in the leg. For some reason manufacturers think that the wider a lady is the taller she is too. WRONG!!! I just hacked off a couple of inches and left them raw, they aren't going to be worn that often so they don't warrant hemming.
Anyway, here is something to make you smile.
I am off to decorate!!
