Pip Pip Cheerio...


As you'll have no doubt noticed it's been a bit quiet around here for the past week. I haven't really had the energy to summon anything up.

Hence I've taken the decision to take a bit of a break from Blogging. I've not posted much about my M.E. in recent months but my cognitive function and concentration has got a lot worse. Whilst I have days where I feel ok (relatively speaking) physically, mentally I'll have turned to mush. And vice versa- you win some, you lose some.

Trying to even conjure inspiration for posts has escaped me recently and that's before I'll even have expended energy putting pen to paper. Or digit to touch screen enabled smart phone, but that doesn't have the same ring, does it?

The upshot is: I need to take time out. I hope to be back at some point in the not to distant future.

I'll still be around on Twitter and Instagram if you feel like getting in touch.

For now though, take care and thank you for reading!

Off The Chart...

As a self confessed tea-aholic (whaddya mean you had no idea?!) I couldn't help but chuckle at this guide to the tea colour strengths (supposedly) favoured by the Great British public.






I stumbled across it whilst looking up colour charts on Pinterest (why? I hear you ask. All will be revealed soon. Ish.). God bless the Internet in all its random glory.

My cuppa of choice lies somewhere between Skimmed Alive Brown Zero. Yup, I'm one of those heathens who likes it milky. Sorry.

Are you a Colonel Mustard (in the billboards room? With a candlestick?) or more of an Iron Brew?

Benefit Calling...

Just a quick one from me to share Benefit's brilliant new marketing campaign Temptation Telephone:




Would you have answered? I definitely would. I love a bit of mystery and intrigue. And anything pink. So yes, a big pink ringing telephone box would definitely pique my interest. 

If you're on Twitter you can get involved via the #temptationtelephone tag. Or follow @Benefit_UK_IRE for the chance to win Benefit goodies and find out where it's going to land next.

Keep your eyes peeled!
