Outfit of the day 31/01/17

Today has not been terribly inspiring, really. I have been very weak and tired over the weekend and did not go out of the house. So, things have been very similar today too. I tried to get up this morning and went downstairs, but Lovely Husband quickly sent me back to bed.

My outfit today was a velour lounge suit by Cotton Traders. It is in a deep navy and is very comfortable and comforting when I am feeling low. I also managed to wear some brass dangly earrings and my navy leather Ferragamo bracelet for a bit of bling. LH bought me a fluffy fleece blanket some years ago, so I snuggled down with this for most of the day.

I read my latest book for a while and ate lunch, kindly made by Younger Son before he went out to work. In the afternoon, LH and I swapped places and he came up to bed for a rest whilst I went down to watch the Silent Witness recordings from last week. I enjoy this show as I really like Emilia Fox and I don’t usually guess the killer until well into the second part – very unusual for me.

I finished “The Glass Rainbow” by James Lee Burke on Saturday. I found this hard to read, not because the writing was poor, far from it, but because my lack of concentration means that I struggle to read descriptive passages, and there are a lot in this book. Burke sets the scenes and culture of the Deep South with such a beautiful touch. Even though I didn’t understand every word, I felt transported into the swamps, levees and bayous, the heat and sweat and damp trickling through the leaves. Wonderful stuff!

This evening, I will read some more and then write more blog posts, if I am in the mood. My new book is “The Reckoning” by Jane Casey and is the second book in her Maeve Kerrigan series. I am filling in the gaps.

Such exciting stuff when you have a chronic illness!
