Dusted: bird-motive sweater, striped blazer, houndstooth trousers, belt bag, and wool beret

Whew!!  We’ve been dealing with some unexpected “turbulence” around here recently…but fingers crossed, it appears that the proverbial dust is finally settling a little!!

Robin and I had last week off  (woohoo, right?!) but it ended up being the exact opposite of the “rest and relaxation” we’d originally planned.  Some of it was good stuff – I finally took the plunge and migrated* StyleIsMyPudding from Google’s Blogger to WordPress, for example.  I’d been thinking about making the move for at least a year; and having a whole week off to get my site properly relaunched and to familiarize myself with the new set-up seemed ideal.

But then good old Murphy’s Law came into play.  Just as I’m learning the ropes, our fur-baby Fancy – the rescue ferret we adopted almost exactly a year ago – had a bad fall, and we ended up spending a chunk of last Wednesday and Thursday at the veterinary clinic.  I was terrified that she might be paralyzed…but she’s a determined little girl, and slowly but surely she seems on the way to a full recovery.

So to make up for some of the fun we missed out on – and for what I’m hoping won’t be a premature celebration – we are hitting the town with friends tomorrow evening for drinks (everyone but me) and dancing (probably only me!!)  With Christmas a mere month away, and Thanksgiving happening today for my American readers, I think it’s high time to get this party started!!  💃🏼

*P.S. If you’re a blogger who’s contemplating the switch to WordPress, but are unsure of how to go about the process, I highly recommend the services of Pipdig!!  They take care of absolutely everything for you…and the move couldn’t be more seamless.  (And no, they did not pay me to say that!!)

    Love to see that jacket make an appearance, and still loving that beret. Hope the ferret’s recovery continues smoothly.
