What a week!

September 1, 2013

I promised myself I would blog a lot this week and have hardly posted at all! I do have a very good excuse though….



Yup, that’s my rather inconveniently sprained left hand. I’d like to say I did it doing something terribly exciting but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. No, silly me managed to tear the ligament beneath my thumb…getting out of bed.

So my left hand is completely unusable for a while, and I have to keep it in this very uncomfortable (and ugly – why doesn’t it come in black!) splint at least til my next hospital appointment next Thursday.

The pain seems to be lessening slightly now, and I’m finding it more annoying! One of the (ridiculously vain) reasons I’m most annoyed is that I cant put enough pressure on my thumb to remove my nail varnish, nor manage to slide it into my¬†Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover , so I’ve been repainting the same red over and over!

Guess this means no NOTD posts from me in the foreseeable future! My injury hasn’t hindered my ability to shop online though, so I have no excuse not to write a few reviews with parcels from Fragrance Direct, Avon, Cosmetics Fairy & Ebay either arrived or coming soon!

In band news we had a show in Derby last night which went really well!

I cant decide if my splint was a hindrance to my usual plethora of dramatic hand gestures or an awesome perma-grym-hand! I’m certainly glad that I don’t need to play keyboards at the moment that’s for sure – even with only a mic stand to master I had to fumble about and get Amie’s help to raise up the clip!

Still the night was very enjoyable, and I barely noticed any pain during the set once the adrenaline kicked in. We had lots of compliments and positive words from fans and friends old and new, which is very appreciated in a time of such stark change for the band. It makes me very excited for the future of Dakesis =)


Totally Hellbent for painkillers, ice, helpful bandmates and having a boyfriend willing to cut all my food into little squares for me.
