Lost my voice and more alphabet city!

Hello all I am sick, very sick! I had a bad cough last week and the doctor said it was just a little virus that would clear up with a bit of cough mixture. Yesterday I woke up with a sore and raspy throat, but I dealt with it and went to work as usual in the pub, which was difficult as my voice faded in and out of its own accord making talking to customers increasingly difficult. But today I woke up with no voice at all just a squeaky whisper, my throat is raw and painful, my lungs and throat are full of horrid gunk, so I think it is safe to say that the little virus has flourished into full fledged chest/throat infection. Luckily the doctor gave me a back up prescription of antibiotics incase this happened, so Im hoping my honey will venture out tomorrow morning and get them for me while I stay curled up in my cwtchy bed. Alas I cannot go to work, and on Black Friday too, I'm so sad about this *hear heavy sarcasm* I am missing the most chaotic/busiest day of the year. Anywhoo that has at least given me the time to catch on on everyones blog and get some more of my alphabet city post done. So here are a few more letters to make up for the great lack of posts over the last few days.

T is for Twiggy

She needs no introduction, she is the iconic Twiggy!

Or see her in the M&S TV ads here.

U is for Umbrella

In our current weather situation (and generally all year round in the UK) we need a good old brolly, but who says we can't have a stylish one! Here are a few I like.

Who wouldn't want a bit of blue sky on a rainy day, find it on Amazon

Laura Ashley (this just has an oriental vibe!)
River Island (not a pink fan but love this one)

John Lewis (but they are also available loads of other places)
Random online kids store (can't remember name) isn't it just so sweet!

Plus I found this absolutely stunning one in work and luckily nobody came to claim it so now its all mine, hehe! It has a pretty flower pattern in the fabric and a lace edge, plus a cute tassle on the pole and a really sweet thin handle (sorry the pics aren't that great, hard to take a good shot).
