The last seven days have been eventful to say the least in the Iris May Style household.
Most of you probably know by now that Jonny went into hospital last Wednesday for a double hernia operation – I know. Ouch. And then Ouch again (well he did have two hernia’s).
This operation was also the first time Jonny had ever had a general anaesthetic, and let me tell you, he wasn’t looking forward to it.
Up until this point he was extremely proud of his ‘I’ve never been in hospital/had an operation record’
The surgeon operating on Jonny already knew that one of the hernia’s were really bad, but during surgery she found the second one to be equally as nasty – no wonder the poor bloke is sore.
Thank goodness for morphine I say 😉
This stuff helped immensely to numb the pain over the first few days when Jonny got home…it also helped that he had the perfect nurse looking after him of course *Ahem cough, cough* ME!
Having Jonny poorly has made me realise just how lucky I am.
Jonny and I are a partnership.
We share the household responsibilities – ok I’ll admit, Jonny is amazing and does the lions share around the house.
So with Jonny out of action (he can’t lift anything heavier than 5kgs for the next 5 weeks) it means I am chief cook and bottle washer…oh and
puppy dog ‘Princess Lulabelle’ walker…and ironing lady (one household chore I NEVER do) and did I mention BIN LADY? Confession: I had to ask Jonny what the coloured lids on the bins were for!
Plus everything else Saint Jonathan does around the house.
I AM EXHAUSTED – and I still have jobs stacking up!
And that is before Beckie moves house again this weekend.
Talk about bad timing.
She only moved into the new apartment in March (don’t ask, it’s a long story).
Anyway, it’s all worked out perfectly (except for the fact that Jonny is out of action of course).
On the bright side, she is moving into a delightful place with Sophie (the other half of Two Corporate Girls).
I am so happy for them.
Can you imagine the fun those gorgeous girls will have together?
To say they are excited is an understatement.
Of course, I’ll keep you posted on the TCG shenanigans.
In normal circumstances, removals would of course be the answer (but nothing is ever normal in our household). The girls are moving to the apartment block, right next door to the one where Beckie is n now.
So I’m hoping when we arrive in Brisbane for the move, they have talked a few mates with muscles into helping.
As you probably can imagine blogging hasn’t really been on my mind much this week.
Rather than over think today’s post, I just thought a quick catch-up with you all would be much better.
After all, sh*t happens to us all and sometimes the important stuff needs to take priority.
So these are a couple of new pieces that have landed in my P O Box over the last week or so and because I just can’t resist trying new things on, I grabbed the tripod (as my lensman is out of action) and snapped a quick couple of pics to show you.
I adore that the top has bell sleeves with a flattering hi-low hem. The fact that it’s cotton and stripes just seals the deal for me.
And who doesn’t love a lazy-girl tee dress?
Especially one that has a v-neck and POCKETS
This one works so well with sneakers and a casual jacket or mix it up with ankle boots and (p)leather jacket and scarf.
On a cold day layer up with a bamboo slip dress underneath. Or even knot the hemline for a different look.
Oh and just to give you one last giggle.
It’s been 8 weeks since I’ve been re-blonded (I’m thinking of starting a new trend with the BADGER look 😉 ) Beckie and I normally meet up for some Mumma Daughter time at Blow in Brisbane, but our hair schedules got out of whack. So to get us back together at the salon, I put my appointment back a couple of weeks to align with her schedule.
Our appointments are this Saturday…yes the day Beckie is moving house!
Guess who has to cancel?
Expect the Badger look to live on just that little bit longer!
So how are you? What’s been happening in your lives?
