..the sound of silence.....

Hi everyone, just wanted to put a few words to the page, so to speak, to let you know that I am around, just not up to blogging at present due to ill-health.  I also wanted to "speak" up when I am sick I feel very small and possibly lonely too.  When I am sick I spend all my time in my bed if I can, because I like to hide away but the obvious affect of this (1) hiding away is not really my style, and (2) I have loads of time to think about things which I want to share!

So in this update post, firstly thank you Dear Readers, thank you for your wonderful comments on my plans for 2012.  I don't really make "traditional new year's resolutions" I tend to just come up with something I want to do.  The starting point for this blog was in March, which is post-Christmas and more like Chinese New Year!  However, as Christmas 2011 approached I felt more compelled to be be proactive rather than re-active.  Planning something and then following it through will be more of a challenge than just suddenly throwing up my hands in horror, and saying "that's it, I have had enough, I am going to stop...."

To clarify:

I will buy clothes from second hand/thrift/charity stores: just like last year, but without the "new" tee shirts from JayJays and the "new" shoes from Rubi/No 1 Shoes etc.  

New underpants were bought in December which are a horrible fit and shape and I swear I can make something more comfortable, so I am writing a "Clothes to make" list which is currently topped by undies. 

I can hear a few mutterings about bras....come on you know you are wondering about bras, I KNOW you are wondering about bras.  I am just going to spit it out.  I cheated.  I went to the Bendon Outlet store on 27th December and bought 4 beautiful bras.  Two for $10 each and two for $20 each.  I was in the store for about an hour as I am a "popular size".  Anyway.  Bra situation is under control.

Right, all my brain can manage at present, over and out.  


  1. Oh sweet I do hope you feel better soon!!!! Poor you!!!! Sending a big furry squirrel hug. Love V

  2. Bummer to hear that you are crook!Take care, and get well SOON!X

  3. I hope it won't be too long before you feel up to leaving your little hidey-hole. Take care x

  4. i just mailed a little something to you, hopefully it will work as a pick-me-up.

  5. Sending you a big get well soon hug. Take care of yourself. Xx

  6. Making your own undies. That is freaking awesome.
    I'm glad someone is able to find bras that fit at outlet stores. It is a perpetual struggle for me.
    All the best for this challenge.


I love getting feedback and comments from readers!
