Sick of being sick.

The reason I have been quiet on the blog front is because I have been sick and let me tell you I'm sick of being sick. It's infected sinus' actually. I suffer throughout winter and generally in Spring. Summer is my saving grace. Another reason I love the season.

If only you could have seen me. I was in bed with 3 great, sexy and amazing....blankets. I also scattered hundreds of snotty tissues around the bed like delicate germ land mines.
I have also marinated myself in lemon, ginger and honey tea. I'm feeling much better but I still have the post nasal drip. It's so annoying, I could tear my own throat out. I wont. It would be messy.

I'm annoyed too because just as I start my exercise regime, this happens. It has taken me over a year to motivate myself to get my wobbly ass to the gym and when I do, I fall sick. Now, I could take it is a sign, but I wont. I am determined this time to actually be toned and fabulous. I have been given a challenge. I need to get myself into a super tight and sexy mini for a mates birthday in October. I scoffed at this obviously, but she seems to think this will motivate me. She's picking the dress out too. Crap.
I had better get my post nasal drip to the punching bags immediately or scare everyone away in October.

This weekend really was chilled. I had been in bed for Thursday and Friday so I was literally climbing the walls in my cabin fever state. I had to work Saturday and Sunday, so I took the opportunity to see some girl friends on Sunday. We had brunch at Atholl Square and it was absolutely fantastic. Poached eggs, coffee and winter sunshine; that's what I'm talking about!
I literally felt like I was having my very own Sex in the City moment. We chatted about everything, everything!
I needed that!

In other news, I bought Pepper Spray today. It was a spontaneous moment. Well, kind of. I've been wanting to get something after my smash and grab for a while now . I've never really gotten round to it, but today I happened to walk past a security store. Ultimately I have wanted to get a tazer. Shock his criminal ass, you know?
R5000? I think not. I bought a R95 pepper spray.
I'm rather scared of it though. I would be the type of person who in a moment of panic would spray the nozzle into my own face. We all know how Murphy's Law adores me.
It does make me feel better to have it though. I really hope I never have to use it.

I've decided to make a delicious stuffed roast chicken tonight - I'm still learning how to cook, you see, so this is all experimental. I'm setting the table and lighting candles. I even bought a new table cloth. Blogshell is putting out all the stops! Hold me back! ;-) Haha!

Shame, I've just recovered from flu and although I slept for three solid days I was so over it by Friday. Hope you're feeling better super soon.

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Aw shame Boldly Benny...luckily I escaped the FLU, but the sinus symptoms are really similiar! Horrible!

Glad you're feeling better too :-)

R95 for a pepper spray !! omg ...I used to get them at the chemist counter for like R20 in Cpt!!! would love to have mine here with me...but i hear pepper spray is illegal here and mace isnt or somethien similarly screwed up like that!

Hope you get better...been missing you online.

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Aw thanks Midnitegem, that makes me feel better! Nice to know I've been missed :-)

Oh jeez, maybe I was ripped off!!??!!

I hope not to use it, but if I have to, that would ALSO be my luck...Police: "Sorry m'aam, it's illegal to use this! Your criminal goes free and you go away for life!"
Charming! LOL

MidniteGem said...

Lol - maybe it is just Joberg know with it being more dagerous and stuff (i'm not being entirely seriously with that)

I know that pepper spray is legal in SA and mace isnt. I always felt better carrying it even though i never had to use it.

Also did you know that in SA if you shot your attacker and just wound him you get into worse legal trouble then if you shoot and kill screwed up is that.

Glad i made you feel better :)

i'm fascinated with my own pepper spray... i soooooooooo badly want to try it out!!

MidniteGem said...

I had friends who tried one out in the garden while we all sat inside... it was all good until the wind blew what must have been the pepper spray particals into the lounge and we all started coughing and spluttering!!! that stuff is seriously strong...if you even need to use it, use it and then run away very fast so you dont inhale any of it!
Even the cops call the treatment of people who have been sprayed as decontamination !!!!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Midnite Gem, you learn something everyday!! Thanks :-)
Can't wait to step outside my gates today! Woohoo! Haha!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Sweets, I do too! Too scared to though, all I need is to spray myself or to be upwind when I do spray some! Argh!
You try it first and let me know what it's like! Haha!
