Happy blogaversary to me ....

... Happy blogaversary to me, Happy blogaversary dear CC, Happy blogaversary to me :D

So here we are one year in - I can't believe that it has been a year already - I have truly loved every minute that I has been spent on my blog, whether that's thinking up the new ideas for clothes, shopping for new ones, meeting and talking to new friends .. I may not have many followers but I really appreciate every comment that you take time to write on my page.

Ive loved looking back over my outfits for the last year and can't wait to see how my style develops over the next ... so without further ado I present to you my fave outfits from the past 12 months;













I think that from looking at this I tend to via towards liking "Summer" clothing more and that I tend to wear a lot of brighter and pink colours in the summer.
What do you think - what are you faves?
Here's to the next blog year :D

Hello again .. Hello

So it was back to work for me today - I can officially say I am knackered - I haven't been doing much apart from sitting, reading, watching TV etc for the last 3 weeks so it's quite a shock to the system - plus the kids were manic :S

Had to blow dry my hair and style it myself today after having cut - takes more time than when it was longer!!! But I think it turned out ok - can never get it as good as the salon :'(

I needed comfy clothes as my stomach is still a bit sore .. and also wanted something that covers up my scars - I still have my stitches in also.
This top is deep purple but always looks blue on pictures for some reason.
What I wore:
Top: Matalan.
Trousers: Florence and Fred @ Tesco.
Boots: Barrett's.

Bob's your uncle ...

So I ventured out for my first outing for 3 weeks (apart from docs and hosp) and went to the hairdressers to get a new do .. have gone for a black long bob :D

I really like it - at the mo - I always change my mind when I have to style it myself lol ....

What do you think?

Back to work next week, I'm still not feeling a 100% but can't really have anymore time off .. so will have to see how I get on - so regular outfit posts should be returning!
Plus a special post is in the offing for next week also :D ......

Stay tuned ........

Anyone for Doubles?

Ok so no "proper" blog posts for a while yet but wanted to keep in touch and have had a few ideas about what to blog about for the next couple of weeks ...

Just a little update: I'm doing ok, am still in pain and have a fair bit of swelling around my stomach (look like Ive eaten a beach ball) The operation itself went smoothly however the doctors weren't able to do exactly what they wanted so in a way I am back to square one as they still do not know what is causing the pain - Ive had it for around 12 years now, but it has got progressively worse and definitely worse over the last year :(

When I went in on the morning of the op, I wasn't told that my husband would not be allowed to stay with me which was horrible, as I didn't really get to say bye, i was ushered into a room and didn't realise he wasn't coming with me, I still had my handbag and all my belongings that I was going to give to him to take care of for me. So had a little cry and lots of texts flew back and forth between me and my spouse.
I calmed down and met my nurse for the day, then the anesthetists (whom i asked lots of questions as I have panic attacks about wearing the oxygen mask - he let me off) and then finally my consultant. Then it was time to go - or so I thought, waited around in the "holding bay" area for around an hour as they shifted the schedule around, I got shuffled down a place.

When i came around I felt okay - which was a relief as last time I had any anesthetic I was v poorly - I have low blood pressure and kept losing consciousness. I was taken back up to the ward and left to rest for a little while before being given some weetabix and a cup of tea.

The girl next to me in the bad, though fragile looking, looked radiant, her hair was cascading over her shoulders and she looked peaceful - I however looked a mess! She reminded me so much of Jessica Simpson - which will lead me on to the next part of this post in just a moment.

First I'll round up my hospital (long and boring you may say) story first, So I had my food and was told I could go home, Gra was rung and waiting, I had to get ready. So I finally managed to get dressed - not an easy feat I can tell you, and was told I had to go to the toilet before I left, so dutifully I did, came out nearly passed out and was sick - NICE!! So had to stay a bit longer, have more blood pressure tests etc, before finally being wheeled to the car - and home to bed - which is where I remain.

Now onto the fun part of my blog - U deserve a reward (of sorts) if you read all that crap .... Now as I was saying the girl next to me reminded me of Jessica Simpson and it got me to thinking about my doppelgangers and who people say or have said that I look like.

When I was at uni I had a short blonde bob and everyone used to say that I looked like Gillian Anderson - my nickname even became Scully for a while!

Other people used to comment that I looked like Drew Barrymore:

Probably more as Josie Grossie in Never Been Kissed though tbh hahaha.

Another friend of mine used to tell me that my eyes looked like Busy Phillips.

Face Double always seems to think I'm Anne Hathaway!

And lastly a good friend of mine and myself say that I look like Jane McDonald (A UK TV presenter and singer) when I do certain faces!
So what do you think - who do you think I most resemble - any of these or your own ideas - and tell me do you have a looky-like out there?
Let me know - keep me entertained :D
