Lou Lou's Vintage Fair
My Slovenian housemates cousin coming to stay for the week! She is so lovely (her cousin, not her) (kidding, she's super lovely too!) and it has been fun having someone to show around the city. It's also funny the things she noticed about England that we don't 'cos we live here. She's noticed that we swear all the time, which then I noticed is absolutely true...
Tea at the Vintage Fair
Lou Lou's Vintage fair at Guildhall, which I went to with my friends, and I bought a jacket for only £10! It was originally £30 and I didn't see the sale tag, oh my stars I was so so happy when I found out how much it actually was! We spent a couple of hours browsing and then another hour chatting over tea, paninis, and cake.
Snow! OK so there was only a short flurry, and it melted off the cars before I even left the house but it was still pretty to watch.
Going to Portsmouth aquarium with the housemates and friends. I was starting to feel ill when we went but I was dying to go anyway, I'm kind of glad I did 'cos I love the aquarium because it's so peaceful. But it took my last drop of health and I spent that night with a horrible fever and am only just recovering *sad face*.
My best friend making cracking sweet potato soup and looking after me while I've been ill. I haven't even had the energy to get out of bed let alone cook haha but lucky me I live with awesome people so I've been cooked for, shopped for, had my forehead dabbed with a cold flannel and kept company on the sofa watching Game of Thrones.
Having a girly night on the last night my housemate's cousin stayed. We had face masks and snacks and girly films! We watched Clueless which is one of my all time favourite films and I finally got my appetite back and ate pizza, cookies, pasta, garlic bread and mini eggs! I made up for lost food ;-)
I hope you've all had a better week than I have. I'm feeling pretty crummy at the moment, this cough hasn't shifted for more than six weeks! I am not great at being ill, I hate it and I ignore being ill until I'm so ill I can't even get out of bed. Which is what I did this time too, but I've been resting and drinking lots of fluids and eating good food and the fever is gone, I'm still pretty tired, but my cough still hasn't shifted and I've got a stuffy nose again! I also keep getting headaches/migraines and looking at bright lights really fucking hurts! I read an article about keeping happy when you're ill and that even though we should connect mind and body it's important to lead with whichever's strongest. Right now I guess my mind is (never thought I'd say that!) so I'm trying really hard to stay positive and not worry! Sorry for the long finish up here, I'm bored and concerned haha! Tell me about your week? We need a catch up! xo
