Up and about, just about!

Here is a photo taken of me today.
It's the first time in....erm... I don't know. Since Christmas?! That I've worn make-up.

We were going out for a drive, and possibly some shops and food along the way. So I thought I'd spare the populace, not to mention Luvbug, the sight of my pale virus-ridden bleagh. The observant among you, or possibly stalkers (LOL) wil notice the haircut. That was done a month or so ago. Layers! I actually agreed to layers, and let them clip away my long, long, straight hair. Waah!

I have put on soooo much weight.
Everything I wear is tight and my chubby cheeks have taken over my chin. Sigh...

I took this one outside of a place called The Suffolk Food Halls, which was full of lovely, luxurious foody things and we spent far too much but said, never mind, it's a one-off treat....

Here's another, from the car park;I love the way I managed to catch the bird!

Bob came too, of course. Here he is at a reservoir we visited. He's pointing to a windsurfer.
It looked like a lovely place to walk around, full of paths and trees and bird-hides. You could also hire bikes. But I was soooo dizzy and woozy, and the wind coming off the water set my bad throat off again :(

It was still great to get out though, and a lovely clear day. It's Mother's Day here today, and I wasn't able to go and see mine because I didn't want to risk giving her the bug. So I felt a bit lost. Hence, it was nice to go out, even though I now feel like I've been hit by a truck! It was nice of Luvbug to get us out of the house. Can't wait for warmer days. We live in such a great spot for exploring nice places.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Hello dear Helena! My goodness you are so very beautiful!!! I admire drew barrymore and you could be her twin sister!
Thank you for visiting today....Miss Peach is facing some rather serious surgery after easter. She has a cancer tumor on her tummy and needs her teeth pulled. I am beside myself with worry. She is over 16 now sweet old girl...plus she has both ears infected now...I want to climb on the back of a dragon and fly away......can I come visit Dilly?

**LOL thankyou so much for the lovely compliments!!!**

LOL! I do think I am so fat. It would be lovely to see the SHAPE of my face again, instead of one that could be stuck on a balloon with no alteration to the shape being needed at all :)

Miss Peach, I have left a message for you over at your place. A really worrying time. My Fluffy has had blood tests that show high calcium, and this could be bad for her liver. They retested after a month and then retested after a week- I get the results prob. Thursday. I am very worried. Her thyroid is fine again, now we have to worry about her liver! Waah!

Helena, you look lovely! I know what you mean about extra weight - at the moment I look more pregnant than my son's fiancee, and she's due in less than 2 months! Fine weather and feeling well again will make a lot of difference.

Your hair looks very nice. It can grow long again if you want but really, it's quite pretty as it is.

Hope you feel better soon. The bugs seem to be hitting everyone very hard this year.
