Talk about famous last words! I closed my last post with ‘I don’t need a cold right now thank you very much’…& guess what? I woke on Sunday morning with a very dry & sore throat.
I dosed myself up, sprayed my throat & set off to work, determined not to let it take hold. I take vitamin supplements daily & whenever I get a sniffle, I ‘up’ my vitamin C intake, but this time it wasn’t enough! I now have a full blown cold…coughing & sneezing & generally achy all over!!
This morning, after I had dropped the boys to school, I made beds & generally tidied up before filling a hot- water-bottle, dosing myself with Lemsip & curling up under a throw on the sofa, along with the cat & my laptop!
However, back to Sunday…I met Amanda for our regular Sunday night cinema visit after work & we managed to see ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ starring Julia Roberts.
I’m not sure what I expected from this movie, there had been some beautiful images in the preview, hinting at a great story… & I do like Julia Roberts, but it wasn’t as impactful as I’d hoped! There were some very funny moments & some gorgeous scenery, but it just sort of drifted, I felt!!!
Ah well, you can’t please all of the people, all of the time!! One thing that did happen though, was that when we ordered our supper at Prezzo’s after we’d seen the film, we both opted for Pizza instead of our usual pasta or salad!!! Talk about the power of suggestion!! Now, you’ll have to go see the film to know what I’m referring to!!
I have managed a bit of creativity this week. I did mention last time that this weeks challenge over at Dixie Pieces ‘Glee Club’ is ‘Southern Gospel’ & I managed to complete a LO using the song title ‘Sing Sister Sing’ using a photo of my sister & I singing at a musical evening in Paris back in 1993!
I was a little unsure of how to keep to the ‘Gospel’ theme, but pulled out some embellies that I thought fit the bill, but by the time I was piecing it all together it took on a very Christmassy feel…maybe something to do with my choosing green & red!!! Anyway, what do you think?!!!…
…now I didn’t even know what they were, but apparently each ‘do, re, mi, so, fa, la, ti & do’ note has a different shaped head, so I chose ‘re’ & ‘do’ & made this card for my friend Suzy's birthday next week.
In case you were wondering, the ‘re’ shape is a semi circle which I used in the scalloped edges & ‘do’ is a triangle, which is in the bunting!
And that’s about all from me for now! I think I’m ready for another dose of Lemsip & perhaps a refill of my hot-water-bottle…I’m sure there must be house-boy around here somewhere to tend to my needs!!!!
Thanks for dropping by & thank goodness cold germs aren’t transmitted via cyberspace, or you wouldn’t come back again!! : )
