Comfort Food

I'm feeling sorry for myself today, like Sophie Dahl said on her programme last week, I'm suffering from a Eeyore day. I've got a pain in my side which I can't shift even after taking paracetamol, I'm hobbling along after being stupid and wearing new trainers on my 2 hr dog walk yesterday which took the skin off the back of my heel. The house is a mess, there's dust everywhere I look, but I don't have the energy or inclination to clean it. So whats a girl to do?....... I made myself a big bacon butty and a brew to cheer myself up, it was bloomin horrible.... :o) I also have a cake lined up in a bit, after my butty has gone down.....alas I shall never be slim.

I kept forgetting to take a pic of these. These were bought at last weeks car boot. Three Redoute botanical prints in frames for £3.....Bargain. Not keen on the frames, so I will either buy new, or paint these.

Well off to wallow.

That tablecloth alone would cheer me up. x

Oh poor you it sounds rather unpleasant. Hope you bacon butty and brew has helped to put things right.

Love the pictures.

Take care.

Sound's like you have the right idea though bacon roll and cake will make anything feel better!

Sorry your not feeling well....that sandwich looks yum! Love me some bacon! Feel well friend!

I can really understand. Days like that are totally rubbish. When I have a day where I feel blue I make myself lots of toast with melted butter on, and a big ole pot of tea. I am totally convinced of the medicinal properties of a hot pot of tea. And then I abuse a few cream eggs just for good measure. I hope you feel better soon. Sending a big hug. Emma xxx

I keep eating loads at the moment, I’m going on holiday on Monday…any ideas how I can lose a stone in a few days??? ;-)

Love Lou xxx
I hope you feel better soon!

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Hope you feel better soon. I like your botanical prints! Oke, the frames are terrible but a creativ person like you can certainly do something to make them more beautiful. Or buy new ones indeed!
Get well soon!

Dearest Eeyore :) I know how you feel, it's hard when you have days like that, sounds like you need Tigger to come along and bounce around until you have to laugh at him! I just found your blog and read your profile, I have to say I too would LOVE to live in a cottage with a bit of land in Somerset. I spent a lot of my childhood in the Dorset countryside and long for those days again, nowadays I live in Belgium but boy do I miss England! So it's been fun to catch up a bit with that Cottage feel at your Blog. I'm having a giveaway, details on my Blog, may cheer you up a bit :) Hugs, Catherine x

Oh a good wallow every now and then and a bacon butty is GOOD for you!!
Hope you feel sunny again soon.
Warm Wishes,
Cally x

We all get those days! Isn't awful when the most you can manage is to look at the dust and then walk off! Yummy, bacon butty, I want one now! Love that mug too, and hmmm, I love the prints and I think I would definitely paint the frames. Suzie xxx

I'm your partner in the Fabric Addict swap!! Nice to meet you - it's always good to discover new blogs ... yours is great!

Let me know your colour/pattern preferences ... although, I can guess that anything CK-like would do the trick! :)
