I Get My Zing Back But Blogger Loses It.

How's your day been?



Will a bit of citrus help?  Hit those flu symptoms on the head good and proper?  Liven up your taste buds?  Give you a hit of Vitamin C?  Here, have some on me.

Chin up, we're just over the half way mark of the working week.  I didn't just eat citrus for my morning tea today, I wore it as well.

Cardi - Target, necklace - Faux Fuchsia Orange by Red Phoenix Emporium, tank - Big W, belt - GAP, trousers - GAP.

I don't know about you but this morning was the first one of the week where I woke up feeling, well, awake.  I think it's the weather that's made me feel so tired these last few days.  I've had a dull ache in my head that's too minor to be called a headache but its just there being annoying.  Fortunately, I've got my zing back.  Just in time.  It's been a day of exciting email dialogues, creative collaboration and general anticipation.  Watch this space.



There was one less thing I needed to anticipate today.  How's that for speedy?  My cardy sock ugg boots arrived in the post this morning from Ugg Boots Made in Australia.  I blogged about buying them 2 days ago and hey presto, here they are! 

Full points to my Australia Post Parcel delivery guy for braving the downpours this morning and getting my parcel out so early in the morning.  He's clearly pumped full of Vitamin C.

I got the tall length and they sit below the knee.  The cardy socks were not as difficult to put on my uggs as I feared.  They look rather cute together.  Probably redundant but cute.  And you can't have too much cute in winter.

It's at this point in the post that I just have to spill.  Blogger is being sluggish with the photo uploads.  I've been trying to load photos for this post for ages and they just don't seem to be working.

I'm going to try again one more time.

Nope.  No dice.

We'll just have to all sit down in a quiet corner, close our eyes and imagine.

Missing photo uploaded.


The first photo was of me sitting at the yoga studio waiting for class to start but unable to remove my uggs and their cardigans from my feet.  They were that comfy.  I was so attached I was seriously considering the first ugg booted hand stand the studio had ever witnessed.  I chickened out in the end.

Missing photo uploaded.


The next photo was of the dark, wet street I walked down after class finished.  It was a much nicer walk in my snug uggs.

So, sorry about the word pictures in lieu of the photos.  If I get a chance tomorrow, I'll have another go at uploading them.

Take care, live long and prosper.  It's only business days until the weekend.  I hope you have excellent plans.

Before I go though, I'd like to say a few words for my readers from Greece or anyone who has family over there.  The news each day and the local accounts of the fall out from the debt crisis are both so dire.  Pay cut after pay cut for those employed, taxes hitting the middle and lower income earners the hardest, the riots outside parliament.  We're hearing and seeing it all on the news right now.  What's less obvious to us here is the silent destruction of the structure of society.  As parents lose jobs and houses and children battle to understand what's going on around them, ever fearful that the bank is going to come and take everything away from them.

I don't know what else to say but that I hope a solution is found where every sector of society pays equally and that somehow this huge burden will unify the nation rather than tear it apart.

  1. Lovely uggs.

    The situation in Greece does look pretty dire at present. It must be quite horrible.

    Blogger definitely seems to have lost its mojo.

  2. I wonder if there are too many bloggers and the server is overloaded.
    Loving your oranges...
    The situation in Greece does sound very dire. I hope there will be some improvement soon.

  3. Totally agree with your thought re: Greece. It's very scary to think that this could be part of the downfall of the EU. Scary stuff for the financial world, but also the "everyday" world.

    Good stuff on the uggies - they are very cute. Think I might have to buy when they hit the sale racks as it's far too hot in the Northern Hemisphere for uggs at the moment!

  4. SSG Saw the cardies @ 40% off at Target today but only large sizes- I love the green & orange.. Have yours stood the test of time in terms of keeping shape/ not pilling (I seriously have pilling angst with knitwear)????? Love Orange too- am rocking my orange gap scarf circa 2007 right now...

  5. Perhaps blogger needs a hit of vitamin c. I couldn't upload photos the other day. I'll take some citrusy goodness too - on holidays here and I've come down with something rotten. Always the way.

    Terrible situation in Greece. Fabulous situation going on with your feet.

    I hate it when blogger won't upload photos.

    You look lovely in orange.

    Greece is a huge concern, their situation seems even more dire than Ireland and things are NOT going well there.

  7. Love the orange (don't think it gets enough of a run at all) and nice to see a decent length cardie -- mine always seem too short. A pat on the back for you too for getting along to yoga despite the ordinary weather.

    I have a mate heading to Greece shortly and have given strict instructions to take care. I do hope things improve soon, it's such a beautiful country.
