The great escape...

I saw this on the TV this evening. I loved fuzzy felt when I was a kid and I like the idea behind this too:

I feel I also need to clear up a little misunderstanding from my last post. Mr Monda didn't actually make the handmade bear, although he was very happy for people to believe this! He purchased it for me from a handmade stall at a Christmas market. Perhaps I need to have a softie making workshop with him - he's a very creative chap actually (he is a designer), but his sewing skills are not really that honed.

I've been to see the doctor this week. I have a yucky viral infection in my throat - it feels like there is something stuck in there. I'm also quite snotty and bunged up too. This has been simmering under the surface for some time and has finally surfaced. Antiseptic throat spray and vitamins are the remedy advised by the Doctor.

Something not advised by the doctor but highly recommended by me however (if you live in the UK), is treating your self to a Graze!I have mine delivered to work twice a week on a Tuesday and a Thursday (they get delivered by royal mail with your daily post), and these little boxes do a lot to cheer me up, as well as filling me up with healthy foods to graze on. My first box arrived this week and contained fresh pineapple slices, lemon salted almonds and a mix called 'aye carumba' which is cajun spiced seeds with goji berries and apricots. Take a look at the graze website - you can basically tell them what you would like to have delivered in your box by rating various foods, you can also tell them what you don't want too (I said no to everything with Chilli's in). I have no idea what will come in my box tomorrow but having a little pressie to yourself twice a week is great fun. The team behind Graze are concious of the environment too - all the packaging used is recycled, and the inks used in printing are vegetable based. At the moment, you can get a half price trial box for just £1.49. Try it, I bet you'll like it!

:-( Hope you're feeling much better soon.

The Graze box looks lovely and such a great treat to receive at work...almost makes it worth leaving the house for!

That graze box looks scrummy but I'm very disappointed that Mr Monda didn't make the bear - you definitely need to introduce him to a needle and thread because I'm sure the results would be fantastic!
