And so it begins



I appear to have done something bad to my foot which has been giving me grief for the last week, my jaw bones hurt bad and my bones ache. Maybe I should actually go to the Dr. I am one of those (possibly) silly people who just don't go to the Dr until their leg is falling off or they're dragged there by the hair. I think it's because my Mother lives in the Drs, not literally but her life revolves around what her latest illness is, how many tablets she has to take a day etc etc etc. Anyway not being able to chew is probably a good start to my New Year diet no? :)

Him indoors is currently running around the shops in a last minute panic with the small people to buy me a birthday present. It is my birthday on Saturday and he is back off shore to work tomorrow morning. The taxi is booked for 4.15am - don't start me on the whole why does he have to wake me up too thing! Anyway he has ordered my present from him online which I am very pleased about as I have been hinting for them for ever. Who knows what the smalls will be able to find in the shops in the 10 minutes they'll probably have before the shops shut LOL Luckily I already know one of the things big one has got me because I bought it myself and gave it to her to give to me LOL Crafty? No just practical ;)

I am still having issues with my laptop - but aaaah ok enough with the moaning.

I just got a text from my friend at work which gave me a shock because the way she worded it I read I should be at work but fortunately she rang me straight away when she realised I was hopping around. My god if the state my head has been in for the last 5 days is anything to go by 2009 is going to be one nutty year.

Do you want to see something that is possibly a little bit sad?
Well brace yourself....




Yes I did the most ungreenest thing and bought fancy cloths instead of using my knitted dishcloths and old rags. The Green Fairy will surely smite me but they are soooo preeeettty. :)

Oh and these have absolutely nothing to do with my sore foot I swear. I was not wearing them!!! But I'm not going to show you the one's I was wearing ;)



Oh go on one last piccy just because having a nice chat with you has helped put a smile back on my face.
This is the sandwich I attempted to eat in the Carnegie Deli in New York.

And no I didn't come close to finishing it!

Oo, nice shoes!! And a very happy Birthday for Saturday! M bought my Christmas pressie online, but left it so late that it didn't get to us until after Christmas! Typical bloke eh? :-) Hope your foot gets better soon!

Cor what lovely shoes, i don't think I could walk in them now, I am turning into an old fuddy duddy!
Have a lovely birthday, and that is a monstrous sandwich, I notice they have to use a cocktail stick just to keep the bread on!
I hope you are feeling better soon

cheers Alex

Last year, after Christmas, my jaw locked! I couldn't open it more than 1/2". It didn't help with my diet though.....

I love the shoes!!!

When you ate at the deli did you have their cheesecake?? It is my favorite. Sometimes we splurge and have it shipped in!

Thanks for all the comments :)

I have a feeling my present will probably not be in here in time either Samsara ;)

Seems the shoes are a hit LOL :D

And that's no cocktail stick more of a kebab stick, you know the bamboo one's you use on the BBQ?

We had no room for the cheesecake but we did try out the one in the Stage Deli one night which was just as enourmous.

Hmmm - does that last photo explain the aching jaw?!

Hi, Thanks so much for popping by my blog. I hope you are feeling better soon, like you I refuse to go to the doctors for anything, I would have to be on my last legs before you could get me there. The shoes are fab, I was kinda drooling over them (I have been known to hug shoes). Hope you feel better by Saturday and have a Happy Birthday! X

Taz said...

No jb*jb you'd have to be like one of those snakes who dislocate their jaw to swallow a whole horse to get your chops round that butty :D

Thanks VK I do have a bit of a thing for shoes. Was very deprived of them as a child so now I buy far too many

OH those red shoes.....!!

Beautiful shoes, the black and white ones are fabulous. I too bought some of those Sarah Smith cloths and a couple of purple sponges.......it's bad but they sure do look pretty don't they.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who has them :D
