Sunday Confessions



I confess: I have been m.i.a. due to my Mom visiting, sorry. We were busy climbing all of the stairs in London, my knees are shot! Which kind of annoyed me because I had hoped I had built them up a bit but apparently not enough for the Tower of London. It was good though, more fun stuff later.

I confess: I should not have watched this week's very emotional episode of GOT the day my Mom left. "Hold the door!" Sob. I mean seriously, what the ever loving frack GOT writers?!? Not happy with how this season is going. :-(

I confess: I have a weird sun/not sun rash on my chest. I don't think it is a sunburn because I was wearing a high necked t-shirt AND sunscreen the day it happened - I think I might actually be allergic to some suncreens? Anyway it is taking its time getting better, so far I have tried Aloe and E45 cream but it's still itchy and red. It has always been sensitive (my, erm decollatage) since I had radiotherapy there, but I don't get why it does this sometimes, I always thought it was a sun thing but I seriously got no sun there. Does anyone else ever react to sunscreen?

I confess: I really, really like staying in hotels. I think I could quite happily just live in hotels if I ever won the lottery. It's so freeing and un-cluttered (um except for all of my clutter!). I had a dream last night that I owned two Winnebagos and one was empty and I knew I could just put the overspill from the other Winnebago into the spare one and I would be set for life, and I was so happy to just be living in Winnebagos in the dream. So yeah, I have no idea what that means!

I confess: OH I forgot, my Mom and I were in Westminster Cathedral and there was this huge line of people waiting to confess, and I thought that was kind of awesome in this day and age where everyone just seems to use Twitter and/or Facebook as armchair confessionals, but also wasn't sure I had anything deep enough to confess - then I went to to the bathroom and took the Lord's name in vain trying to get the toilet paper out and figured that's how it starts, this conscious self awareness of our bad thoughts? I mean normally I wouldn't think twice about that but I felt guilty having just sat in numerous little chapels with Jesus and all. But hey, I have Sunday Confessions here on the blog! Plus that line was damned long! (Oops oh dear, sorry, hail Mary etc!) I think I'm past saving! ;-0

  1. The days after family leave are just the worst, so to have that episode on top of your mom leaving...! Not good timing, GoT showrunners.

    1. Aaaand I got my period today, so that would also explain the quantity of Cadbury chocolate fingers I consumed yesterday (and the weeps!) ;-)

  2. Yes, I react to perfumes and insect repellents in suncreams; I use the ones for kids because they're gentler. I also get heat rash sometimes...?

    1. I always thought it was prickly heat in Florida, but I was wearing a super thick t-shirt and it's wasn't THAT sunny, so I don't know. I will keep the kid's sunscreens in mind, good tip thanks! :-)

  3. I would be so scared to confess to an honest-to-goodness priest. I like the IDEA of it, but the practice...oi. Did you take a lot of pics in London? I hope you post some. I'm glad you had so much fun with your mom, but sorry about your knees. :(
    The best thing about hotels is knowing you will never be responsible for washing the sheets or the towels. You will never have to scrub the toilet. Hmm...not having to clean.

  4. Could it be a heat or sweat rash?

    1. Well I have had a sweat rash in the past (which grossed me out no end when the doctor told me it was...a fungus...omg) but this is more sudden and angry. I thinkit is a heat/sun/thin skin issue.

  5. I hope I never get allergic to sunscreen! That would be just awful for this pasty girl in California :( :(

    I like hotels for the same reason! Plus I've stayed in some super fancy ones lately which have made me want to up my decor game. Because I have none. But they did them in such a way that was still uncluttered. Love that.

    1. I think it's just certain sunscreens, I had a free sachet of Hawaian (is that spelled remotely right? looks weird!Hawaii...two w's? agh! what even)Tropic, which I think has caused problems in the past (just wiith my weird radiotherapy blitzed patch of skin, but then I forget about it because I only need sunscreen like twice a year in Scotland!
