    I haven't posted much this month due to a medical emergency with my Mum. She is finally home from hospital but will have a long recovery ahead. I need to catch up on Basenotes news but hope everyone is doing o.k.!

    I'm wearing What I did on my Holidays by 4160 Tuesdays.

    Hugs to all!

    Whack-a-Doodle Do everybody!

    I feel better emotionally since I started cleaning my floors with my scrubbing drill attachment. I get settled on the floor with a couple buckets, some rags, paper towels and let the drill do the work. It's not as grounding as my yard work, not nearly so fun as my spinning wheel, but it'll do in a pinch for finding a mind flow state.

    Trilby -- I missed the news you were into making masks, too. It's satisfying to me as well, and I'm glad we have it in common.


    (((Quarry))) I'm glad you've finished your chemo. (((Kewart))) that sounds hard--I hope your antibiotics kick in quickly. (((Mike))) You're a champ.

    I had a good day Monday with my L'Huere Bleue/ Teint de Neige wrist to wrist-- it made me laugh at myself, for sure. Today, I'm still in Teint de Neige but the oil, blasting loud rock music to accent the whir of my drill.
    She who laughs last.....

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    CuddleCat I truly hope your mother recovers well.
    Mike - it was their loss!
    I am feeling more positive today as the anti-biotics are
    kicking in. Thank you for listening to my rants and for your
    support. I didn't know Boots did a delivery Teardrop but I usually
    use Pharmacy to U. I only used the chemist attatched to the surgery
    because my GP though it woud be quicker on this occasion.

    My SOTD is the warm hug that is Visa.

    Good morning all !. Confined to barracks today thanks to mother nature

    CuddleCat, you have been missed. Sending my very best wishes to your mother for a full recovery.

    kewart, I sometimes wonder if this country can organise anything efficiently

    Mike, I really admire your approach and I definitely agree with kewart - their loss.

    Hello and best to everyone. Cuddle Cat it’s so nice to see you again. Speedy, full recovery for your mom.
    Kewart I’m glad the antibiotics are starting to work. I hope they get you back to 100% soon.
    Mike this can only mean that something even better is waiting for you. Your outlook is to be admired.

    Hugs to everyone who needs them.

    The corona situation is getting worse and worse everyday here. My boss doesn't want me to work from home despite me actually doing more from home because he "likes me being in the office". I work with texts, not people. Well, I'll just comment with a Skype emoticon and will just say (womanshrug).

    Mon Guerlain again today.

    Mostly spritz and dash, but quick shout outs of support for Mike, kewart and Mum CuddleCat!!!

    Another sample wear today, A Lab On Fire What We Do In Paris Is Secret. Honey-forward, which makes me happy.



    Hope everybody has a thrilling (but not palpitation-inducing-thrilling!) Thursday.

    What We Do In Paris Is Secret fragrance notes: Bergamot, Honey, Lychee, Turkish Rose Essence, Vanilla, Heliotrope, Tonka Bean, Tolu, Sandalwood, Ambergris
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Wet, warm, and windy here as the edges of Hurricane Zeta brush past us. Seems like a good day for the smoke and spice of Tea for Two (with a hat tip to Trilby Lark).

    MikeP, I admire your sanguine attitude.

    Shocking news from France with yet another
    terrorist attack in Nice. My sympathy and solidarity
    goes out to all those who not only have another lockdown
    beginning tonight but must feel under threat from dark forces
    right now.

    +1.

    I'm absolutely outraged by this happening again in such a laid back and beautiful place. I wonder why it is so difficult for a minority of lunatics to accept that we all have different values / beliefs and can quite happily co-exist. What is being achieved by this wickedness ?. I'm lost for words .....

    I'm wearing Unknown Pleasures today. I wore it yesterday and I kept getting wafts of it periodically. I love it when that happens.

    CuddleCat, it's nice to see you again!

    Sad to learn about the situation in Nice. I agree with Jon's perspective.
