In a hovel of a bed I will scream in vain








I am currently recovering from a Septoplasty and Bilateral Turbinoplasty.
Sounds ghastly! But deliciously dramatic....
(It's only minor surgery,and surprisingly common!)
I feel FARKING UNCOMFORTABLE and SORRY FOR MYSELF right now, at day 5, but the payoff will be being able to breathe properly. 
I don't look remotely glamourous; these pix must be a couple of weeks old. I have a puffy face and a weeping nose and haven't left the house in days!
Meh, woe is ME!
Spring is springing like a horny deer, however, which is cheering, so it won't be long before I can shed the furry hats and cardigans!
I feel the need to make Summery plans, like picnics and parties and places to go....but, then I probably will just do my usual feck all at home! I am certain I have lost all my social skills of late; all I want to do is hang out alone, or with G, and read, sew or cook. But that could just be the Winter hibernation thang.
We will see what the sunny season brings!

Poor you!!! Well onwards and upwards for here then. Hopefully you will be back to your normal sparkling best before you know it. Arrrr yes SPRINGness is here, and Summer not far behind. Come north and I will take you to Raglan for a picnic and watch the sunset. Or Whangamata and we can watch the sun rise, choice is yours or we do both!!! You make a fur hat look positively fab!

Foolishly, I googled your procedures - ack! You poor dear! I hope you recover soon, and that G is lavishing care on you like the diva you are.

I like that the bottom suitcase is smiling. He seems very cheery.

aw, it's worth it. My ward handles all the nasal surgeries. My son had it done when he was 16.

No more snoring and so worth it for peace and quiet at night.

Relax, enjoy the quiet down time.

Hope you feel better soon and are back on your stylish vintage-clad feet soon :)

Delia West said...

So sorry to hear you are not feeling well and hope your recovery is quick now for you. I love your dress the fabric is so pretty I always think you look gorgeous. I am sure its the winter months making you feel like you want to hibernate it certainly does that to me once the cold sets in and the nights are dark all I feel like doing is snuggling up on the sofa with my blanket reading or doing crochet. Get well soon lovely, dee xx

ANd for us who don't understand what kind of surgery you are recovering from - it sounds "ghastly" (don't know what that really means either but I can kind of hear when I say it out loud ...) but you sure look good in the Pictures and I'm so ealous that you have a (horny!) spring and a summer round the corner.

I feel sore just reading that. You must e in a lot of pain. I hope that they have given you good painkillers and that you are taking it easy. You look fab in that outfit. Orange is such a happy colour and a good antidote to the cold. We are just rolling round into winter and I definitely see some orange on the horizon. That is one incredible cabinet. I love all the painted doors. Hope you feel better soon. Xx

Hope you are on the mend soon! IKWYM about lounging around at home; having a cozy space is delightful! We make Grand Plans on occasion, but really, sitting on the deck or porch with a cool drink and watching the hummingbirds flit amongst the flowers is pretty magical and hard to beat!

Beth Waltz said...

What a very Victorian title and ensemble, dear Helga! So very appropriate for a truly ghastly-sounding surgery! (But you'll be pleased with having dealt with the snorckling and gorckling. Brava!)

The Chinoiserie cabinet is a very handsome piece, even while serving as a roost for what appears to be a skunk-skin coat. ?! If you are bored enough to tell its tale, please do.

Carol said...

Ouch! Here's wishing you the speediest of recoveries. xo

Curtise said...

Bleugh! That doesn't sound much fun, no wonder you feel a bit sorry for yourself. But I'm sure you will be out and about looking fabularse again soon. Loving the bright orange, the beautiful frock, and your hair flowing wild and free! xxx

Vix said...

Ouch! That doesn't sound a pleasant experience at all but, if it gets rid of your head colds and allergies then it's got to be worth looking like John Merrick for a week or so.
Ace photos, that wardrobe is splendid and no-one looks as good in a cardi as you do.
Gawd, I'm positively dying to have a booze-free, anti-social weekend but there's a couple of weeks to go. I'm a right bastard wreck.
Love you! xxxx

Melanie said...

Ouch ouch ouch!!! Of course you feel rotten - people were farking with your nose. I feel for you. Rest, pampering, and loud whining is always cathartic. And good food. Soon you will be up and frisky and romping about, looking as gorgeous as you do in these photos. Hang in there, my beauty.

Connie said...

Oh Poor Baby. I hope you feel better soon so you can breath that lovely Spring air. I absolutely love your entire outfit right down to your sensible shoes. You know, I had a roommate that went to the hospital for surgery for a -ahem- "deviated septum" and came out with a Brand New Nose. But since your schnoz is already perfect, I suspect you went under the knife for the drugs. XXXOOO

thorne garnet said...

Nothing about the word surgery is fun, yuck. Get well soon so you can enjoy your spring. On my side of the world, I've just about had it with the heat and humidity and look longingly at my fall/winter clothes. Soon dears, soon

Goody said...

When my sister was going through all that awful stuff I offered to break her nose for free, but she insisted on a professional. Go figure. I hope you heal quickly and it reduces your suffering.

No wonder you always look so incredible-you have a dressing room worthy of a movie star. That wardrobe is really something.

Get well soon.

poor dear lady, I wish you recover soon and enjoy all the pleasures of warm weather, picnics and lots of social life!

Forest City Fashionista said...

Oh, OUCH, your poor nose! Wishing you a speedy recovery so that you can prance about and enjoy the spring. Tell G all your blogger friends have said that he is to wait on you hand and foot (and nose).

That is a spectacular wardrobe!

freckleface said...

Poor bambino! Let's hope by now you are starting to feel a bit better and breathing a bit easier. Puffy chops don't make one wish for social intercourse it is true. (Our school song had the word intercourse in it, imagine how we sniggered EVERY TIME we had to sing it). You do look beautiful and romantic by your rather dazzling wardrobe, I love the fur hat look, indoors, it makes me think Julie Christie in Doctor Zhivago in the big country house. But anyway, stop teasing us. I can see a beautiful floral pale blue long dress on the side of the wardrobe, and I need to see more of it. And you. Glad you're coming out of hibernation Helgita! Xxxx

Trees said...

I'm sure you're all recovered by now - but I thought you looked lovely in these pictures, even if you felt gross!! Love those orange tights!

char said...

Well, I hope you feel better soon but you certainly do look glamourous in these photos!

Frenie Agbayani said...
