Vanity Thy Name Is ???

I went to bed last night with one eye a little puffy and itchy; I woke this morning with two puffy itchy eyes. I didn't have bags under my eyes I had terraces. Think the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and you can't go wrong.

If my husband was thinking that he'd just spent the night with an old hag he was too polite to say so.

A quick trip into the pharmacy on my way to work and I was armed with a box of antihistamine eye drops. The last time I took an antihistamine tablet I ended up ill and slept for hours (and they were the non-drowsy variety). I didn't want to risk that again but I was willing - and desperate - to try the eye drops.

By the time I got to work my cheeks were all red and blotchy and I really looked awful. Just the other day I'd been bemoaning the fact that I'm getting older and that it shows and in an effort to cheer myself up I had reminded myself that I'm never going to look as good again as I do right now.

Well I was right. I just didn't expect to get worse so quickly!

I'm just hoping the allergy isn't due to something in my garden. I don't think it is. I think it's more likely something that these awful Spring winds have blown in.

I hope it settles soon. Otherwise DH will be spending the night with an old hag again!

I forgot it's spring in your corner of the globe. Hope you get over the allergies soon.
