Back to the hair decision.
I think I have FOUR options.
1. Go with The Sample Room, and pay $275. (and presume they will do a fantastic job)
2. Drive back to Manukau, and pay $140.
3. Do more ringing around, and try to find a cheaper salon. Trusting that cheaper does not mean I will get a bad colour and cut?
3. Talk to a long time, but haven't seen in years, friend who does hairdressing from her home in Hamilton, and get her to do my hair.
1 and 2 are both fairly sound options, number 3 is dragging it out some more.... and number 4... well what if she does a shit job and I end up pissing her off by never getting her to do the job again?
What a drama over my stupid hair! But I really want to get it sorted soon, and stick with whatever option I go for. I hate mucking around.
Stew's sister, Khady, is due to leave this morning, she's off up to Auckland to spend a week with a friend.
Shame the weather is going to be atrocious this week, she won't get many walks on the beach with her dog Max.
As for the kids and me... we have NO plans today. And I don't have any 'jobs' to do either.
I can't believe almost all the jobs are done!
I will be looking for things to do soon.
Actually, I might just do some sewing today... now there's an idea. *smiles*
They choose to sleep in the lounge so they have more room for the cot Archer sleeps in, and Dante can be with them too.
The spare bedroom is quite small with the queen size bed in it. It's just fine for the likes of Lacy and Keera, but not a couple and a toddler in a cot.
Oh talking of Lacy, she's coming back this weekend to spend a couple of days with Keera here.
So, we will have a full house this weekend. FUN.
11.24 am: I decided to go down town and visit a couple more hair salons, and get more quotes.
The first one ...
ABOVE: If you thought yesterday's quote of $275 was bad.... it isn't the worst!!!
Oh hell no way am I paying that sort of price!
So, on to the next salon...
ABOVE: Totally acceptable! She agreed to lower the hair CUT price, as I only ever get a light trim. No styling. $170 all up if I get a trim too... otherwise just $150. SCORE!
I was tickled pink with that quote, so made an appointment for next week... the soonest I can get in.
Better cancel the other appointment now.
After the salon hunt, I went to the local New World supermarket to get some lunch stuff (ham, lettuce, bread and so on).
There is a LOTTO counter as you enter the shop, and as I had a couple of old lotto tickets, I decided to get them checked out.
ABOVE: I won $668 !!!
I'm pretty sure I squealed! Then I text everyone to share my happy win.
I am having a bloody AWESOME day!
4.56 pm: after lunch I had a nana nap. I was feeling a bit tired ... no reason even!
So now it's almost time to think about dinner... but nah. It's takeaway night I think.
Brylee has a friend coming over for a sleep over tonight. Hope that goes well.
Thank goodness we have a spare bedroom!
I've been thinking of what to do with my winnings.
And have decided to do NOTHING with it. It can go towards a very special event that is going to be happening in the next few months.
BUT. IT'S. A. SECRET. RIGHT. NOW... don't ya just hate that?
I know. But you don't. hee hee. Shit I'm awful. But nice too... *smiles*
10.40 pm: Time to wind down for the evening. It's been such a lovely day. I've got the hair sorted and money in the bank for a special something. Yaaa.
