recovering, some lovely post & a cheeky Luella purchase

My little sister Willow sent Mark & I this post, how lovely!! I know she put a lot of thought into it, and I very much appreciate it :) I love getting things in the post, especially from my lovely family. And how cool is the little Royal Mail Movember stamp?!
I snapped up this pink wool & cashmere Luella jumper on Ebay last week, for the tiny sum of £14.50 delivered - a bargain!

I was in the hospital yesterday for a minor procedure. It was very painful, but I had two lovely nurses called Kerry & Trish who made sure I was ok whilst the doctor did his job. The preparation for the procedure was horrendous, I won't go into what it entailed but will say I couldn't eat for over 24 hours. I had oxygen through my nose (attractive) and an IV drip in my hand (cringe, I hate needles). It was all over and I went home within about 4 hours. I am sore and quite uncomfortable now, but I guess it's just my body feeling bruised, and hopefully it will pass in a few days. I had a procedure called a colonoscopy, which in itself is gross and I was very anxious before I went in. I was given a sedative, two actually, only they didn't make any difference!! I think the prep for the procedure was equally as awful as the procedure itself, and if anyone ever gets referred for one, just make sure you wear comfortable clothes and have a doting mum/dad/boyfriend on hand to look after you from the day before to the day after. I won't lie and try to tell you it was fine, I'm just glad it's over with, but it's an important procedure to rule out certain health issues :)

Now I'm off to watch the rest of Saturday night TV (does anyone else find Take Me Out hideously entertaining?!) and eat chocolate to my heart's content. I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!


  1. lovely blog.

  2. That's such a cool sweater! I love Luella, especially when she had her line over here at Target.

    Oh wow, I'm so sorry you had to go through that procedure :( But I hope everything is alright. Will be praying and thinking of you. x


Thanks for your lovely comments! I try to reply to them all :) x
