And for my next trick..

After you've got over the intial shock of me posting twice in the same week, I hope your sitting down for a third helping, you lucky devils!
After being on very intimate terms with the toliet for the past few weeks-and believe you me, no one will ever know the grouting round the tiles and the rattle of the cistern quite like I do- I'm finally starting to feel a smidge better, perhaps not fighting fit but no longer in a morphine induced haze or revisting every meal I eat.
Illness aside, January hasn't been too bad a month. I ordered a new wardrobe and bedside cabinet which (with a wee bit of help from my dad) I managed to construct hitch free, you will know by now is quite the achievement for me since A. I'm beyond clumsy and B. I have the attention span of a malteaser.
You've also probably noticed that the blog has had a reshuffle. I downloaded a photoshop type program which I used to do my blog header, it's probably wildly amateurish but I'm quite proud of it, and also my new computer skills (thank-you to Matt for your advice and help!). What do you all think? I'm loving some of the girls new headers and layouts; Beth's labels are very cute, Gem's new layout and header are fab, and I love all the little touches Emma's added to her blog.
I've been slacking a bit in my 365 project, but I've taken loads of pictures (although none from my hopsital stay-not overly keen on documentation of me looking rough being broadcast on here!) I just need to upload them all. Is anyone else doing their own 365 project?
I hope that people found my review helpful, I got some great feedback. I try to cover all bases when I do the reviews but if there's anything I'm missing or something in particular that I havent included leave me a comment, similarly if there's a product you want to see reviewed let me know. Coming soon in reviews is Marks and Spencers and Starbucks new sandwiches, and also my first edition of Gluten-Free Heroes which I'm really excited about.
Anyway I shall leave you with a few pics from the past month and a few bits and bobs I got for Chrimbo-better late than never eh?
See you all soon my Katie-Boo Babes!
