Ow Ow Ow - My New Essential Fashion Accessory!

After a few days of feeling much better my poor hand started hurting last night - it felt very, very tight and pretty uncomfortable. By this morning it had started to blister and scab (sorry if tmi).I know this is part of the healing process but it isn't nice and due to the patches of open skin the decision was made to bandage it up. Hopefully this should keep it nice and clean and stop any infection till it starts to heal :(

A Mixed Day !

It has been a mixed day spending wise - First of all I went crazy buying Hello Kitty for MAC spending shall we say a lot :( Nevermind its what I wanted - I'll post some pics when it comes :) I did manage to claw a bit back though - I will be returning the lovely turquoise travel bag that came this morning, its just too big and heavy to be practical so its going - that's another £25 back in my purse.

Happy Pancake Day

The Reason Why I Shop?

I must admit I have had a crappy couple of weeks. A twinge in my ear culminated in an ear infection and a blocked ear canal. Cue a few days of feeling very dizzy, nauseaous and disorientated. I eventually managed to get to the doctors where I was given a fortnights supply of antibiotics. they have only really started kicking in in the past day or so, so I have had over a week of being totally housebound and feeling ghastly, What do you do in this situation, unfortunately for me I shop online. I always seem to want to buy something to cheer me up, using it as an emotional crutch to perk me up and keep me sane. This time I turned to ebay buying a whole load of all be it bargain silver jewellery, and some discontinued Body Shop bits. It made me feel better for a bit then the guilt kicked in when I checked my paypal account. I really don't know why I do it - my old counsellor used to say I was filling a gap in my life which at the time made sense, but now who knows , maybe its just a habit I've got myself into - who knows. All I know is I have to try and get back into the money saving and spending ban habit - well after Thursday at least - I have an exclusive online invitation to the launch of MAC Hello Kitty - Oh well I can always start again on Friday ;)

My Poor Little Hand Or Why Louise Is A Stubbon Moo

I must admit I never ever learn my lesson, I think I am too bloody stubborn. I know full well that I can't lift full pans and full kettles my bloody weak ME ridden arms just don't let me :( So what happened yesterday - Louise lifted a full pan of boiling pasta to the sink to drain and poured it all over her hand - OWWWWWWW!

Its cleared up since yesterday thankfully loads of Aloe Vera gel took away the swelling and some of the pain but I have a lovely burn to show for it and a hot hand :(

Positivity and Acceptance

Received a link to this site from one of my new Facebook friends - although this is her site - it has made me realise I am not the only one and I can relate to most things that she says here. Read it and learn more about me by learning about the condition that has shaped who I am.
