Eye eye captain!

Well yet again, I have had to take a wee break from blogging, but this time, I was very frustrated as to why I couldn’t blog and I was also in pain!

For two whole weeks I walked around with a tiny piece of plastic embedded in my left eye! I have no idea how it got there, but I am eternally grateful for the Doctor who actually spotted it and removed it, after 4 other professionals failed to spot it, with one not even bothering to look in my eye! The pain was horrid, and the longer the plastic was there, the less I could look at anything bright or even outdoors. After having it removed, I woke up the next day and it was like nothing had ever been wrong. I am now more appreciative of my eyes than ever!

Whilst all that was going on, I did also manage to achieve something I’m really proud of too! I have a new job!! I had a interview on Halloween, squinty painful presentation made, and a total memory loss on policy relevant to the job, and I still managed to impress! I guess it shows that things do happen for a reason (still trying to work out a reason for the plastic eye shenanigans!). This job is the third I have been interviewed for, its a great development opportunity within my chosen profession, it offers great flexibility for the days I will be working, I get to keep my long service and its in Central Bristol!! So that’s it, we are officially moving back to Bristol in the new year!

I will be massively sad to leave Brighton, I have some wonderful friends here, who I am going to miss so much, it’s a gorgeous vibrant city and I have a fulfilling job, but Bristol has the upper hand, my parents and family are there, my oldest bestest friends are there, we will be able to afford somewhere lovely and pretty importantly Mr Egg will be able to work close to home and spend more time with us, no more nightmare train journeys to London!

I have also been very very busy making things since the eye trauma…but those reveals are for another post!


Has Isla been eating all of the cakes?

Yummy High Tea (devoured by moi and L)

I started wondering last night if the beautiful Isla Fisher ate one of these

whilst on maternity leave. I am thinking probably not. Hence the reason Isla Fisher is writhing about in teeny tiny hotpants looking amazing and I am not.


Gorgeous Isla Fisher on the cover of Red Magazine this month

I  will however be being RADICAL as of Shrove Tuesday (March 8th this year all you pancake lovers) and giving up not only CHOCOLATE, but CAKE and BISCUITS!!! I am eyeballing your outfit Isla….I am sure it will fit me in 40 days….


P.s The High Tea shown above, was AMAZING and can be enjoyed at Hove Museum and Art Gallery
