This Week #12

I've been feeling sick for a few days, which hasn't been fun and I've been home alone. I always feel worse when there's no one around when I'm not feeling great, it's nice knowing there's someone there to make a hot lemon or something & it never tastes quite as good when I make it myself. But I've been using it as an excuse for lots of naps and reruns of CSI! 



This amazing cropped sweater* has been thrown over every smock dress I own this week because it's so comfortable and I don't want to stop wearing it!
No words necessary! Cutie pie.

Got to show just a little more love to the most perfect pink blush ever. Read all about it here.
This can only really be very loosely described as my favourite moment because it's one where I made a complete tit of myself.

I opened the door to the postman on Friday, he handed me a parcel and I replied with... 'Thanks Dad!' What a corker! I don't know where my head was at! And he's now on my list of people I need to avoid for a little while although I don't think either of us will forget that anytime soon. Oh dear. Successfully embarrassing myself since '89...!



The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared has been sitting on my shelf for a few weeks now and I've been really looking forward to starting it. I'm about 200 pages or so in at the moment and so far, I'm a little disappointed. I had really high expectations so I'm hoping that it starts to pick up a little bit.




I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! 

xoxo

  1. Sorry to hear you've been unwell, I hope you're starting to feel better? One of the worst things about living alone is no one to look after you when you're sick.

  6. This is such a lovely post! I've been a bit ill too this week :( The Lily Lolo blush looks gorgeous, I'd imagine it really perks up a skintone when you're ill!

  8. That cropped sweater looks lovely, and the lily lolo blush looks so good I might have to give it a go myself! Calling the postman dad had me in stitches of laughter, I bet he was quite taken aback! Hope you're feeling better soon, Jennie!

  10. I recently read 'The Little Old Lady who Broke All the Rules', which is branded similarly to the Hundred Year Old Man, and was really disappointed with that too... I hope this one improves for you soon!

  11. Aw, hope you're on the mend now! It's rubbish being sick, especially when you're by yourself.

    Loving what you said to the postman! Haha! Reminds me of when you would accidentally call your teacher 'Mum' in primary school!

  17. Get well soon sweet Jennie, wishing you make a full recovery very soon <3

    Your kitten is just the best and that's a shame about the book, the synopsis sounds so promising so fingers crossed it picks up pace and becomes an enjoyable read xo

  23. I'm also reading The hundred year old man. Love it so far! It's such a funny book.

  24. I hope you're on the mend! The Hundred Year Old Man is on my Kindle reading list - I've heard great things about it so I really hope it starts to pick up. It's such a shame when you've got such high hopes for a book and it never materialises!

  25. I hope you start feeling better ASAP! I've been feeling a bit rotten this week as well, but I'm sure we'll pull through :) I'm prescribing as much rest as possible, lots of reading, and even more tea! x

    Calling the Postman dad is quite the embarrassing moment! I always remember how cringeworthy it was when calling a teacher mam or dad haha! x
