The 33 when someone's ill

This flu season means that any of us could be called upon to dash off to a friend's or family member's for a day or two, to pick up prescriptions, do a load or two of laundry, and make a cup of tea.

So your laundry IS quite up to date, your toiletries are packed and ready to go, including a few days worth of your prescriptions?  Don't forget something to read, the charger for your telephone, and some cash and small bills (just in case you have to hang around the hospital and eat out of the vending machines).

And you HAVE had a flu shot?  it's not too late...

  3. I have the misfortune of being the sickie, not the caregiver. Thankfully, I'm home. And my mom, who epitomizes the French chic simplicity vibe, does look this elegant while making soup. I wish I had a capsule wardrobe for having the flu. My ratty blue robe is even more depressing.

  4. I like the pink shirt added here a fun brighter color is perfect when under the weather.

  6. I absolutely love this! Can you tell me the name of the scarf? I assume it is Hermes. Thanks, Pam

  7. I think it looks quite practical. Black slacks, white T-shirt, cardigan and flats. Chic and practical. Why dress down further when you need to cheer someone up?
