I’m a terrible blogger. I’m sorry. It’s been over a week since my last post. I’ve been so busy, and the week has just shot by. I’ve been busy with dissertation and Wetherspoons and I’ve not been feeling very chirpy. And now I have a cold. So please excuse my absence.
I had a meeting with my dissertation tutor yesterday, which went very well. I’m writing a fantasy piece for my writing project, about shadows. So far, the story has just been pouring out of me, and I’m sitting comfortably at about 4500 words, which is very nice, as I have until May to finish. My tutor was very positive about what I have so far, but gave me some stuff to work on, so I think it’s all going rather well.
I’ve got an absolutely stinking cold now, caught from work. It’s awful when someone comes in ill; you just know you’re going to get it as well. I’ve spent the last week seeing some of the others get ill, one by one, and now it is my turn. I feel very thick-headed and sinusy, and I can’t breathe much, and my throat hurts. I’m shattered. I feel very sorry for myself. I’ve been downing berocca and hot squash with honey, and going through throat sweets like they’re going out of style. Olbas oil is my friend right now too, although I don’t think MrKiss is really enjoying me putting it all over the pillows so I can breathe at night. He insists it smells like insect repellent.
The scaffolding is finally down here at KissHQ, which I hope means we’ve finally seen the last of the builders. Although there is still a massive hole behind the skirting board in the hall, and the front door needs a coat of paint after they’ve trailed the wall paint all over it, so maybe not. I saw the woman who deals with us for our letting agent out walking her dog last night, and I must say the temptation to run after her and demand to know what’s going on was quite overwhelming. She is very nice, but our agent is dreadful at keeping us informed about what’s going on, or ever getting back to us when we phone or call into the office. I did resist though, and left her in peace.
I had a mega blitz of my bedroom yesterday as it had got really messy. It’s lovely having a tidy room again. Today, I’m going to give it a good hoover, and then sort out my jewellery onto racks, finally. Maybe. Or maybe I’ll lie in bed snuffling with this damn cold.
I promise to be a good blogger this week and actually post. When I’m not the lergy queen I’ll get some outfit shots done, if nothing else. In the mean time, here is a picture of an amazing swimsuit. I have no idea where this from (if it’s yours, let me know and I’ll credit). It showed up on my tumblr and I fell in love with it.
