I feel like I have been neglecting my little blogger pals - Since my seizure I have been trying to spend less time at the computer - so I don't get migraine and tired eyes! So by the time I have checked my email, facebook and twitter, Uploaded and edited my pics and written my blog .. I only have time for sporadic visits to my favorite blogs! :(

I feel like I am missing out on your beautiful outfits and wonderful writings ... If I do get chance to see them I don't always have time to comment - so I just want you to know I am still out here and looking - if only for a fleeting second! Hopefully I will be able to return fully to the blogging community soon!!

Wore this outfit to work yesterday - added jacket as it has dropped a little cooler than the past few days - nooo return to me sunshine -- return!!

Jacket - Florence and Fred @ Tesco's!

Hope all of you that live in the UK enjoy your extended bank holiday weekend - and that the weather improves ... All of you in other countries hope you have a great weekend also :D

What happens when I get bored ....

The show must go on!

Back to work today, wasn't especially looking forward to it, as still feeling shaky, head achy, But it actually went ok, am in a different class covering on a Tuesday now, so wasn't sure what it was going to be like, as I don't know the routine or all of the children (some of them I used to have last year though) But it all went well :D

Found out that next year I will be in a different class altogether - everyone is having a move around (not everyone is happy with it to say the least!!!) I'm ok with my move - I shall be in the nursery classroom - and seeing as I spent 4 years as a nursery supervisor it won't be that much of a change!

Rock of Love!

We went to a wedding on Saturday: It also coincided with mine and Gra's 6th anniversary!! Wore the dress I thrifted for the last wedding we went to (seen here) Seeing as I didn't get much wear out of it last time!!

What I wore:
Dress: Thrifted.
Bolero: F+F @ Tesco.
Shoes: Else Shoes.
Necklace: Primark.
Corsage: Peacocks.
Headband: Asda.
Bag: Bling.
Bracelets: Gifted.

How I have worn the dress before!

Some shots from the wedding with some of our friends!

Seeing as it was our 6th anniversary I thought I'd share with you a picture or two of some of our first dates!! :D

And one from our honeymoon :) I know I just had my hair cut the other day - But looking at this I want my long hair back :'(

Lastly I would just like to take this opportunity to say that I hope Bret Michael's recovers soon, as a huge poison fan, and having loved watching him on Rock of Love - my prayers and thoughts are with him and his family at this time!!

Hair brained schemes ....

Also wore:
Cardie: F+F @ Tesco.
Shoes: M+S
Today has been an all over the place kind of day ... I am still relying on lifts everywhere - which is kind of frustrating .. so had arranged with my father in law to take me to the hairdressers and my dad to pick me up .. however best laid plains and all that ...

My stylist rang me the other day to say there water had been turned off by there neighbours who had gone away and were currently stuck in Shanghai!! So the Salon had no water .. it would be best if she could do my hair at my house .. Okay I said, no problem, so we left it at that - I cancelled my lifts and all was dandy.

Today arrives and I wait for L my hairdresser to arrive .. 2pm comes and goes with no sign of her ... 3pm approaches still no sign .. then I get a phone call .. her sat nav couldn't pick up my postcode or house so she had been driving around lost for an hour and had, had to return to the salon.

Cut a long story short - after several phone calls to different stylists from the same salon (none of whom could get to me) I had to call my dad to come get me to give me a lift!

L managed to dry cut my hair and then applied my colour .. I then had to walk through town back to the car park with my hair dye on and a plastic hair hat -I do in fact have evidence of this but I cant find my cable for my phone :'( .... Maybe for the best ;P

Me with the new do .. I know, I know, it doesn't look all that different - But I know it's a lot shorter and better coloured ;)

'Twas something for the weekend'

Finally getting round to putting on my pictures from this weekend! I haven't been well again . I'm still struggling with the after effects of my seizure .. and have had bad headache, fuzzy vision, dizziness etc since we got back from holiday, I went to the doctors on Friday and she has referred me to a neurologist, however I ended up back at the doctors again yesterday as I still felt really bad .. they think i may of had an allergic reaction to the medication I am on, so have changed my meds, but I feel like my life is on hold at the moment :(

I'm not allowed to drive and can't go to work this week, I feel like i can't really enjoy anything as one minute i feel fine the next i feel awful again -I'm just hoping it clears up for this weekend as I have a hair appointment and a friends wedding to attend!!

This is what I wore on Sunday - we finally have our wedding album back :D I LOVE it!! If i can I'll try to scan some of the pics in!
Went to my mum and dad's for tea which was nice as haven't seen them since before we went away!

Saturday, Gra drove me to the Osteopath's to see if it would help with the pain in my head and back - it did - for a short while :'(

As you can see the sun was in my eyes on these pics!

This pic is from y'day when I went to the docs, I didn't get a full length shot! As I was feeling like Cr*p!

Bonjour, Bonjour, Salut !

This is the second part of our holiday - travelled back to France to the sister in Law's Chateau

The first day I just stayed in and relaxed whilst everyone else went on a walk in the mountains I was still feeling a bit dizzy from my exploits in Spain (see first post) and so I just sat in the garden etc and then later on played with the boys on the trampoline etc - always a good cure - cuddles from nephews :D

I saw this new way of putting what I wore onto my photos from a new blog I stumbled upon called Kendi Everyday.

I probably won't do it on all my posts but thought it was fun to mix things up every once in a while :)

The second day we went to Luchon.
We took the children on some fairground rides and to the park and then went for Chocolaut au chauds YUM!

The third day we decided to go to Lac De Genos (See link below) for a picnic .. after this we went to a castle and then called at a little village for Crepes and Hot chocolates.

This is what I wore on the last day -the day we flew home (Good job we flew the day we did as all flights have been grounded now due to the volcanic ash!!)

A couple of pictures of Lac De Genos where we took the 3 nephews for a picnic - it was a little cooler and so we needed to wrap up a little - but how serene does it look??

(Note the little hubby on the pic of the mountain haha)

Macca's stop in Carcassone.
