Bless You

There is a cold looming.  I can feel it.  I can feel my little immune system heave ho-ing against it with all its mite.  Pushing with its hands and its feet.  I havent quite got it yet.  It's that awful twinge-y head, tickly throat and hot ears and cold feet feeling. Bleeeurgh.  I am blaming it wholeheartedly on being back at Monsoon Towers after an unbelievably lovely stretch of days to my little self. 

That said i am A-okay.  Raring to go! Full of a lovely cocktail of pomegranate juice, coconut water, various fruits and sweet tea.   Back to a busy week of early morning get ups, installing Springtime windows at work (spending almost four hours making paper pom-poms gets tedious after a while), and enjoying more sunshine despite the intermittent snow blast of Sunday and Monday and walking to work a bit like a penguin.  I hope i find you all well? This week so far has largely been about skies (mostly clouds though if i am honest); cycling Spring style while visiting my favourite hoard of crocuses; feel better munching and being cosy…

Seeing so many pretty colours whilst out and about is the ultimate in cheer up cheesecake feeling - even if i am wearing gloves, hat and scarf.  I have been enjoying Spring-ifying my barnet with my beautiful Accessorize Bee Print Scarf - cannot get enough of our beautiful silk scarves - or any scarves come to think of it.  So very versatile.  There is nothing better than ice cold bubbly strawberry milkshake and sugary goodness to banish cold-shaped blues.   I like to think i evened out the Lovehearts with a few raspberries.  It worked delicious-ly.

In other news, we enjoyed our first little jaunt in the Mr's new car on Sunday (well a jaunt that is not Tesco, Asda or Sainsbury's - they don't count).  So strange to be mobile by car now.  I am used to hooking all manner of things on poor Willow and so my legs certainly enjoyed a rest.  We went up to Scotland to see my parents and their lovely new house.  The journey was spendid and i am most proud of the driver.  All went smoothly apart from a minor snow storm/blizzard/hail attack en route home and an altercation with a roundabout that we ended up going around far too many times!  

Tonight i am making spaghetti bolognese and looking forward to some warm bake-well tart with a huge dollop of madagascan vanilla cream. I knew when i woke up this morning that i wanted it.  Then i plan to wash my hair and watch Masterchef.  Exciting times!
