Am loving my new coat!!!

SAM_0852b New coat!!!  Yes, doesn’t take too much to make me excited.  🙂

But I’m absolutely loving it.  You know those faux fur fleece blankies – those incredibly soft ones?  Well – the coat is like that inside!

 

To be honest, I didn’t have a clue what it was gonna be like, as it was ordered online… and when all you got is a pic to go by, it’s always a wee bit of a worry until it arrives.

So, I was dead chuffed when it was absolutely lush.  And the good thing about it, not being from a high street store is that hopefully I won’t be wandering around with it on, and seeing tons of others wearing the same (one year I had a Next coat – I swear half the female population of the UK had the same blooming coat).

 

What’s even better… I won it.  🙂

Well, technically I won credit to the store, but as this is what I picked, it became my prize.

I also got a dress, and a jumper for my credit, so over the moon with my goodies.  🙂

 

Coat is from Sheinside.  Their clothes are CHEAP.  And I mean… really cheap.  Delivery is as expected (I often order from Asia… and generally it takes between 7-10 days.  Quickest I’ve had something arrive is 5 days… and longest is about 2 weeks)… but the “processing time” (what the heck is that supposed to mean?) took what felt like forever before it got sent off… but then again, if you’re not in a hurry, having to wait a couple of weeks before the clothes are shipped off shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

However, I think the clothes has been made for tiny little elven creatures like Kylie Minogue!  I got the coat in Large, but it’s more like a M (this was anticipated, which is why I got large)… and my dress and jumper is “one size” (one size for petite 12 year olds – hahahaha).  I really liked them, so thought I’d chance it, considering it wasn’t costing me anything.  🙂

The jumper fits, and will be used, but it is a size smaller than I would have prefered.  The dress however…  oh my goodness – my derriere is atleast 2 sizes too big for it.  Hahahahaha.

 

And if you fancy trying to win some vouchers yourself, there’s loads of contests over on Polyvore for credit at stores!  And even if you don’t fancy playing virtual dress-up in the hope to win something, it’s loads of fun making other sets too!  Think of it like a very tidy and attractive Pinterest… you pick the items you like, and add them together in a set:

 

Home sets, fashion sets, arts & crafts, beauty, art and impression, hair styles… basically anything you want.  🙂

Update on the breeding bugger of a cat, and various other stuff.

I’m allowed to call her a bugger.  I love her to bits, but there’s no denying she’s a complete and utter arse.  🙂

Yes, Pie’s finally done (one of her kids was also fixed a few weeks ago, waiting with D as she’s still fairly petite, and not even 3kg yet)!  *does the happy dance*

As you can see she still got the indentation where her fur was shaved.

Fun and games started as soon as I went to pick her up.  Pie is glaring at my with furious eyes in the carrier, whilst I’m chatting to the vet.  Vet tells me to keep her in for 10 days.  I said Pie would kill me if I kept her in for 10 days.  And I mean, she would actually figure out a way to murder me.

I sigh, and say “fine”, knowing it will never happen.

So, I ask when I can take her collar off.  Vet says to keep it on for 10 days!  Hahahahahahaha!  Oh my goodness, this vet is clearly on some heavy drugs, or has never had a cat.

I’ll tell you how long the collar lasted for – less than 2 minutes!  As soon as we were in the car, Pie managed to push the collar off.  Atleast her glaring look subduded a few nothches after that.

So, wanting to keep her in for the night, cat litter tray, food and water gets put in our bedroom, and the door shot.  Pie goes to sleep…

Until 2am.  Come 2am she’s launching herself at the door handle (she can open the downstairs doors… however the bedroom doors are old, and tricky, as you have to hold the handle down whilst pulling at the door).

I figure it will be less stressful for her, and cause less stress on her body to just open the door…

So, Pie flies though the catflap, and I end up sitting up, worrying about her…

 

I didn’t worry for too long – less than 20 minutes later she returns – with a live bird in her mouth!!!

 

Luring Pie into the bathroom, I then spend the next 30 minutes trying to catch the bird in a box.  When bird finally released, and I open the bathroom door, Pie is there proud as can be, with a look that said “This is what you get for locking me in the bedroom”.

 

*sigh*

 

Otherwise, it’s blooming freezing… not good for the arthritis, but Boo is loving the fact that the fireplace is in use again:

Been to hospital appointments, and the specialist I’m seeing is trying to get me onto a drugs trial.  Have also walked around like a fashion guru with the last accessory of the season – a heart monitor.  Atleast it was so tiny and light it could be clipped onto my bra.

 

Being the idiot that I am, and having gotten as plump as a piggy, I’ve decided to try the Insanity workout.  Of course there are days where I can barely move, so the time-scale isn’t really being followed.  However, on a good day, I decided to do the Fit Test… you’d think it wasn’t possibly to fail a fit test, but I managed – ZERO push-up jacks.  Hahahahahaha!

 

Signing off with the of my gorgeous girls lurking at the fish:
