Hey there APJ Crew,
GAK! This week has been a bit of a write off. Sick and bad tooth.
Did see some mates, wear a bunch of fabulous perfume and do some stuff but it mostly went by in a blur of drugs and wishing to be in my Couch Cocoon. Jin got better and then worse, poor bugger.
Scent Diary: 1.4 – 7.4.2019
April Fools Day. I’m not leaving the house this morning except to walk the dogs.
SOTMorning: Wan Chai by Teone Reinthal. So thick, rich and luscious. A funky amber by an Aussie naturals perfumer.
Because the house was already spotless from Saturday all I’ve done is some clothes washing and the dishwasher.
Writing TRVIA Q&A. By 3.30pm I have the Games and Jackpots all finished and the base 20 Q&A done. Tonight I just have to write 80 more Q&A and I’m done. Woo Hoo!
SOTAfternoon: Tonka Imperiale by Guerlain
Did some couch & TV time watching Peaky Blinders.
Jin came home and we had more Vietnamese Rolls.
It’s time this wobbly back tooth came out. We have been fighting to save it for YEARS and now it’s at the point where it’s creating trouble for me chewing, getting in the way, scraping, jamming and hurting. I’ve left a message for the dentist.
Finished my TRIVIA Q&A by 12.30am
SOTBed: ELdO True Lust – Rayon Violet de ses Yeux. A spicy rose and parma violet candy.
I’m getting sick. I can feel it. Cue annoying five year old whinging child noises.
Booked my wobbly tooth removal for Thursday.
I need some perfume to make this shit day seem better.
SOTMorning: Mitzah by DIOR. 5 big chest sprays. It does make me feel a little better. BLOODY HELL! This stuff is gorgeous.
Made a Couch Cocoon, some Tea and Snacks. Watched Peaky Blinders.
Jin came home.
I had a VERY hot bath, which calmed my slightly feverish head but made my body sweat.
SOTEvening: Knize Ten bought this decade. Someone was talking about it somewhere recently and I found my bottle. Smells excellent. Soft, birchy leather and some flowers.
Work was so much fun. We had 72 players this evening and loads of rowdy fun.
Jin is fast asleep so I fed & walked the dogs.
Cuppa chamomile tea and bedtime.
Today went in a blur of rose and berry infused tea with slices of ginger and lemon in the pot.
On the couch watching Peaky Blinders. I’m already up to Season 4.
SOTEvening: Vintage Miss Dior EdT
Gave myself a bunch of drugs.
Work was fun. Love Greystanes Inn.
Home and doing a little blogging but my mind isn’t very focussed and I’m taking forever to do even the simplest tasks.
SOTBed: Eau My Soul by 4160 Tuesdays. YUM! The gorgeous Sarah popped it into my hand last year. When I got back from my travels everything went into a box. I’ve just rediscovered this and a couple of others. YAY!
Amouage Gold Man
Lazy morning. Made savoury French Toast. Same as usual but with no sugar or maple syrup and with cheese on top. MMMMM
Met Rose for a cuppa in the Macquarie St Hospital and while drinking it got a call from the dentist saying he was running early. Off we popped and had my tooth out in a trice. Isn’t he the most gorgeous dentist ever.
We wandered around some paintings in the NSW State Library and I showed Rose the reading gallery.
Then we went to St Mary’s Cathedral where Saint Rose made an appearance.
Jin met us and drove home because I’d had a hefty local anaesthetic.
I’ve been told I’m only allowed luke-warm mushy food. Nothing hot or cold. Also nothing I really have to chew. My first thought was a Chinese Omelet but our local is closed for renovations. Then I thought McDonalds!!! I haven’t had it since September. Surely this counts as an emergency? No…….. ??
OK, so there’s another Chinese not far away, I had that. The Spring Rolls were disgusting and the King Prawn Omelette had tiny prawns that I couldn’t see to take them out. GRRR! The Lemon Chicken and Egg Fried rice were yum though.
I’m done now. Taking some night Codral and off to bed.
SOTDay: Vintage Y by Yves Saint Laurent. Its a softer galbanum floral chypre for days when the big guns are too much.
Post Office. Grocery shopping. Blogging.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I am utterly lifeless.
There were things I was supposed to do but just didn’t. SORRY WORLD.
Jin and I spent the evening watching Sex Education. It’s fun. Another Netflix series.
Went to shave at 1am and the hot water cord jumped off the under tap area and started gushing. I was so surprised I ran to wake Jin up and lost all ability to make coherent sentences and just kept screaming “JIN! THE BATHROOM EXPLODED!! FUCK!! JIN! THE BATHROOM! FUCK! FUCK! JIN! JIN! FUCK! JIN! BATHROOM!” Poor guy was sound asleep, had to run into the very hot water and burn his hands & feet to stop it. My HERO! Once fixed he went straight back to bed and was snoring in under a minute. Amazing.
There’s very little chance of me sleeping for a while after that kind of excitement. I’m turning the TV back on.
SOTBed: Liberté by Cacharel
SOTMorning: Velours by YSL
Jin and I had some running around to do. Haircuts, pants and alterations, buying the new plumbing for my bathroom.
Came home and Michael Borg came over for lunch and sniffs.
Jin fixed the bathroom and back to his sick bed.
SOTAfternoon: Cuir Amethyste by Armani Prive
Kath, Michael, Rose and I went to see Vossco play viola at the Strathfield Symphony. It was fun.
We took him out for dinner at Liu Rose after. We were the last table standing at the end. My Fortune Cookie was nice eh?
Woke up this morning at around 9am in the spare room and had no idea how I got there. Amusingly it was Paris who walked in to wake me up. VERY dislocated mentally.
Jin woke and told me last night I got home, chatted randomly, cleaned my teeth, called Paris and we went to the spare bedroom and fell asleep.
I have no memories of any of this. Last thing I remember is Vossco dropping me off at the front door after driving me home from dinner after the symphony.
SOTMorning: Bulgari Eau thé Vert
For brunch I made Jin and me some Sausage & Onions on Bread with Mustard Pickle, Hot English Mustard and Seeded Mustard base and BarBQ Sauce. SO DELICIOUS!!
SOTEvening: Veil by Oliver & Co
Work ws unbelievable. The place was jam packed with families for the big Easter Raffle. We still did trivia. It was fun.
Got to lick my mate Marc. YAY!
Home and walked the dogs.
SOTBed: Shalimar extrait by Guerlain
