What else I know for sure

That if you forget to turn your electric-blanket off, you can make human-toast… That it’s really cold at the moment and still hard to get out of bed, no matter how long you delay it… That my husband slept on MY side of the bed while I was in hospital recently (and used my electric… Continue Reading

“What I know for sure…”

Yesss! I’ve finally negotiated an early parole on the promise to the Doc that I can juggle meds/pain levels at home. “Don’t y’all worry. It ain’t nothin’ little Big Al can’t handle!”  A painful/weakened left arm is a small price to pay for freedom after 10 days incarceration at “Le ‘otel de Wesley”! During my… Continue Reading

Aren’t you? What makes “us… Continue Reading

Tread Carefully Through Fashion Fads…

Flicking through a recent copy of a popular fashion mag I was flabbergasted to see a combo being sold to us as “Left Bank Cool” (the outfit in question is not the one pictured. This was just another example of a trend combo gone wrong). They were implying that if we buy these  pieces we too… Continue Reading

What’s Your Style When You’re Not Feeling Well?

I love my sleep, don’t you?  But when we don’t get enough of it it’s really no fun. And it seems the more you think about the sleep you’re not getting, the less you get! Lucky for my loved ones I’m not a cranky-pants when I haven’t caught enough zz’s! Case in point – my recent trip to… Continue Reading
