Love the Little Things #7: May day celebrations on the horizon!
It’s Frrrrrridaaaaaay! & As always, it’s that time of the week when Banana lady here hooks up with the wonderful blogging crew over with Le Belle that is Morgana (But Why Mummy Why), for our weekly ‘Little Loves’. A small corner of the interweb, where we share with you a snapshot into our week that was.
My usual jovial & chipper mood has somewhat diminished this week, & I fear I may be communicating on a greater level of bonkersness than ever before: I’m currently recovering from some surgery & I’m pointing my finger at the anaesthetic for wreaking havoc with me! Apologies, but lets be fair: you should know by now I’m slightly daft anyway!
This week I have:
I do love a good laugh: You know, a rip-roaring belly laugh. That’s exactly what this Haribo advert delivers: If you haven’t seen this commercial yet WHAT? Have you been living under a rock?!
The highlight of my week right here! Upon my discharge from hospital, I arrived home to an influx of congratulatory messages from all over twitter. ‘What’s this?’ I pondered. Apparently the shortlist for the BiBs (brilliance in blogging awards) had been announced & little old me had made it on there for ‘Fresh Voice’! Say whaaaat?! Admittedly, I was still feeling very woozy & I wasn’t entirely sure if I had hallucinated this. Nope! IT’S TRUE!!
I’m still in a state of elation & on cloud 9! I’m very excited & honoured to be gracing the same page as so many ahmaze-balls bloggers. & I have to say such a massive thank you to everyone who got me on the shortlist!
A ‘Campaign manager’ has been appointed, although she’s swooning of the US-of- A so no doubt slacking on her duties! All is fair in love & war: so if any of you awesome folks could find it in your heart to vote for me I am prepared to offer bribery, in the form of virtual hugs & kisses (Just sayin’) You can vote here
Bit of a #fail here this week. Not really ‘made’ much, due to being out of action. However, I’m having someone ‘make’ my blog look a little prettier (does that count?)….keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks.
I recall saying some seriously ludicrous things (unfortunately out loud rather than in my head) whilst awakening from my drug induced sleep. When the delightful nursing team were wheeling me back into my room, I could make out the TV was on in the background, with that Dreadful man Jeremy Kyle & his truly horrendous show. When the nurse enquired ‘Katrina, are you ok?’ My response was ‘Yeah, I’m ok. But you can turn that shit off’ Whoops- that’ll be the truth tonic talking (Rest assured-once my wits returned I swiftly apologised to the nurse for my foul mouth!)
I donned my Rapunzel hair: loose curls & my braid.
So, we’re approaching the first of two Bank holidays bestowed upon us during May here in the UK, & I am determined to battle through my post op pain & enjoy some Maypole dancing (the tradition for May day) & a 30th Birthday celebration at a swanky establishment this weekend (The poor staff won’t know whats hit ’em with 17 of us rowdy Londoners gathering to ‘chow down!)
Please keep visiting the blog & I promise to be back on top form next week!
What wonderful plans are on the horizon for you?
