I got my head checked .... By a jumbo jet

Well not quite ....

I got my results from my CT scan today, so it was an early start (Hence having nowhere in the living room to take pics because of the sun!!)

Got to the hospital at 9.15am .. and by 11.30am I was still sat there waiting ... oh all this after being sent to the WRONG department 3 times!!!

What a palaver!

Anyway - the results showed no significant abnormalities, but as they are still not sure what is causing the headaches etc, they want me to now have an MRI Scan, which I was meant to be having in the first place - to test the blood vessels!

After finally getting out of the hosp, we were both starving Marvin's (me and the hubs that is) so we went to Maccy D's ;) and were going to go catch Toy Story 3 at the cinema, but it was really sunny day so decided not to sit in a dark room!

And went DIY stores instead - what, wait, there not outside?? Logic please people?

Got some wallpaper samples and then did the weekly shop!!

What I wore:

Top and Cardie -both: New Look.

Skirt: Thrifted.

Belt: Primark.

Shoes: Marks and Spencer Limited Collection.

Bangle: Vintage.

Necklace: Gifted, a leaving present from a child at work!
How I've worn this skirt before!

It was really fun to go through all of the things, and we only got one side of boxes done!
In amongst my things was my Grandmas wedding gown and veil, plus a load of my Nanna's old letters, jewellery, photos and I found a great leather coin purse and a pair of brown leather gloves .. which found there way home with me :D
