I have the plague.


Ok, perhaps this is a slightly more accurate description.

I am currently feeling really rather horrible and haven't got out of bed for two days.  I have no energy for anything except sleeping and reading.  The only slight problem with the latter is that all the books in my to-read pile are large and fairly serious and not really ideal sickbed material.  Blogs are better - shorter, more fun and don't need as much brainpower as a 400 page novel. I'm about to embark on a well overdue blog commenting session but your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to link me up to a good blog that I need to read.  I'm sure I'm missing out on loads of them!  Which do you currently love, and why?


ps - If you're on Twitter and around on Thursday night between 7 and 8pm, come and join in the Twitter party on #wwfashion for lots of fun chat about fashion, styling and dressing for your shape, whatever that may be, plus a chance to win lots of lovely Debenhams vouchers! I could so have done with this when I was in the middle of losing weight, so I'll definitely be there sharing some of my hints and tips.

  2. Boohiss, get well soon!
    I'm currently reading lots of sewing and knitting blogs e.g. Did You Make That? and wishing I had more time for making. Do you knit or crochet? Now could be the time! (if you have the materials to hand) Youtube is a good teacher :)

  20. Hope you're feeling better now Alex! I always love going on blog reading sprees when I'm off work ill too, they require just the right amount of concentration to keep me amused but not to cause pain hehe. I like Rachel the hat http://www.rachelthehat.com/ and Cold Knees at the moment http://coldknees.blogspot.co.uk/

  22. Sorry to be late to the game, but I hope you are feeling better now. I am always woefully behind on blog reading these days, so I focus first on friends rather than anything new. And when I am feeling blue anything cat-related does it for me xx
