Monday morning

Good morning! I am so glad to wake up today feeling clear headed.  I was going to write about the gold frame makeover last night but we went to dinner at friends and their cat kept jumping up on my lap. How do animals zero in on the person that doesn't want them? I am so allergic to cats and so by the time we got home I was sniffling and sneezing and my eyes were streaming so it was no blogging for me.  

I didn't used to be allergic to cats - we grew up with very fluffy Persian chinchillas but when I was about 26 I broke my nose waterskiing - I was jumping the wake on a new ski and I fell forwards and my ski hit me in the face and broke a lot of the bones around my sinus.  At 32 knots it wad a fair bit of force. This now means I sneeze when washing my hair, or putting perfume on, I can't cope with strong flowers such as lilies, I absolutely can not walk past the front of a Lush shop (much less than walk into one) and I can't cope with cats anymore. 


Anyway I am off to swim squad now to clear my head a bit more.  I'll be back tomorrow with what I've done with the gold frame and some weekend thrifted finds.  Pop and see what I found. Thank you all so much with all the suggestions. I love your input.

  1. Oh my goodness, Fiona, your house is beautifully stunning. The photo collage is lovely. Have a good week and I hope you enjoyed your swim squad. What a good thing to do - I wish I had your energy. Sorry to hear about your sinuses. That sounds like a bad accident.
