Sick Again

The uploading took a back seat as I contracted a nasty cold that has left me fighting mucus and a sore throat. At least it's bonus month. I intend to get two new pairs of jeans. I already bought myself some new perfume for the winter, as I use my Coco for work and the L'Ombre dans L'Eau by Diptyque is really more of a spring/summer smell. I bought the new Miss Dior eau de parfum. It smelled wonderful in the shop but I wish they wouldn't use those paper strips to test the perfume, the scent can be completely different once it starts interacting with your skin, but this smells a little like Coco, so we'll see.

I also visited Over Farm Shop today for the first time (one of those places that you can't visit unless you're driving). It's the closest place I've seen to The Goods Shed since I left Canterbury, with a delicatessen, a tea shop and a butchery attached to the main shop (which sells vegetables, locally brewed cider and beer, eggs and sundries). Parking is free and it's open until 6pm Mon-Sat, 5pm on Sundays. Will definitely be going back there.

Saw Bram Stoker's Dracula with my friends on Thursday, had forgotten just how ridiculous it gets in places (not to mention the soft porn), but time does not dim Anthony Hopkins's performance. Also saw Gentlemen Prefer Blondes yesterday (they show a classic movie at 3pm the first Saturday of every month). It's the first time I've seen it all the way through and the scene with Jane Russell pretending to be Marilyn Monroe makes much more sense now! *lol* I also think she had nearly all the best lines in the film, even if everyone does remember it for Marilyn singing Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend.

Still waiting to see Thor: The Dark World. *sigh*

I've contracted an inner ear virus which means that I've spent yesterday and today at home, the world literally spinning around me if I move too quickly. Fortunately, my mum had booked this week to come up and stay with me, so I haven't been alone in this. Just wanted to let you know why it's taking so long for me to post about Prague.

(My sister finally gave me the photos of Paris from my 30th birthday last year... in a photo album. So I guess I'll just have to finish the Paris travelogue without them. :/)

So Sunday night leapt straight to the top of the list due to constant diarrhoea and vomiting (couldn't even keep water down), sometimes at the same time (TMI?). I called in sick to work, even though I'll probably get told off for doing that straight after my holiday, but I can't help that I had 'gastroenteritis' (according to the District Nurse). I'm going in tomorrow, even though I probably shouldn't, but I can't afford another day off.

In other bad news, I can't find my flash drive, which had all my stories on it. FML.
