Feeling much better today but not great. Should be back to normal by tomorrow which is good as Steve and I are going out on Monday. He wants to get some new art supplies - easel, boards, oils, acrylics, etc.. so we're going to Maidstone. Going to also pop into Hobbycraft and then the best ever - we're going to Ikea.. whooo hoo - love Ikea. Won't do my diet any good. Gonna buy some Swedish goodies. Oh and a bunch of storage stuff we desperately need. So I need to be back to normal by Monday morning.

Today is "Saturday Self Portrait" at HS|MS. Ugh! What to do? And then I thought I should just take a photo of me snuggling up where I've been the past 2 days. In my chair, in the living room with my snuggly Ikea travel rug, my homemade cushion. Laptop. Tv. Yay. All set. All joking aside. I hate this time of the month. The pain is horrendous and I can't move due to flooding. You all know what I mean. So I honestly thought it would be a good photo to have for my collage at the end of the year.

Hope you all have a great Saturday!

Hi Di :-)

I am sooo lucky :-) Very little of anything just the mood swings which are TERRIBLE but I have been where you are and so really feel for you.

Take care and look after yourself.

Great sp . . . a really good idea :-)

Love IKEA but can spend £100 on "nothing" :-)

HSMS is addictive isn't it ?

I know what you mean my last one was so awful I slept with a hot water bottle on my tummy for 3 nights. I like the picture though.

Hope you're feeling better, especially tomorrow in time for Ikea (my favorite shop too!). x

Really like your photo today, very mellow and cosy, and have just caught up with yesterdays which were both great, especially the post-it - I want one!

Hi Di,

I've just caught up with your photos for this week - LOVE the Three one .... wish my man would do something like that!

And the Ring is just brilliant - if you ever fancy giving a Photoshop Tut. I'll pop round!

Hope you're feeling better soon.
