Freaky Friday

I haven't had much of a chance to immerse myself in perfume land this week, much as I would have liked to. I've been very busy at work and also took off three days as leave, spending some much-needed springtime time with my children. The weather has been glorious here and it feels as if spring has finally arrived and is here to stay.

Today we took the kids to a soft-play centre just outside of Tunbridge Wells. It is located in a warehouse and has lots of slides, obstacles and padded climbing frames. A dream for a kid and, I would have thought, for a dad who enjoys mucking about. Unfortunately my mucking about ended up as daddy-does-his-back-in and I am now almost immobile with an excruciatingly painful lower back injury. Ah, the follies of youth! Not... Having spoken to a doctor it seems like there is not much I can or should do for a few days other than take some strong painkillers and try to take it easy, yet ironically not stay still - the doctor said I stand a better chance of a quicker recovery if I move around, albeit carefully.

So, in and around all of this, I was intending on writing up and posting my thoughts on Puredistance M, but sadly haven't managed to fit this in. I guess it will have to wait until next week, as our closest friends, Darren and Carmen, are coming to stay for the weekend.

I've worn a bit of this and a bit of that this week, but to be honest I can hardly remember what. Today I wore Guerlain's L'Instant, which I own. I still think it is a lovely perfume. I wore Diptyque's Tam Dao yesterday, which felt perfect for a nice spring day. Not that it is necessarily a springlike fragrance, but its contemplative sandalwood and ambergris felt just right.

Next week I hope to be back with a bang. Until then, happy blogging everyone and have a good weekend.


  1. egads! I hate when that happens - mend quickly Michael!

  2. Thanks Frida. I shall do my best!

  3. feel better soon, Michael.

  4. I sympathize sincerely and hope you'll get better soon (I gave up and scheduled a visit to a chiropractor for tomorrow).
    Tam Dao is one of the perfumes that are currently on my "to buy" list. I think it's perfect almost for any part of the year in my area.

  5. Undina, thank you for the kind wishes. And by the sound of it, you are suffering a bit too. Hope it is not too bad. Tam Dao is my favourite of the current crop of Diptyques and yes, I too think it wears well at any time!
