Ever since I dyed my hair brown, I've not felt 'right' in myself.
In fact, I've hated my hair so much I had been doing nothing with it at all.
No straightening, no curls. Nothing.
I would look in the mirror and tell myself it was NEAT not having re-growth... but under it all I felt YUCK.
Totally not myself, not happy at all.
So when one of the ladies I do Aqua Fit with told me about a salon here in Cambridge, offering a $99 Christmas special on colours/foils, I jumped at the chance.
And they could do my hair yesterday afternoon!
So... I got it done.
Right now there's some funky shit going on where Lacy put the pink and purple stripes in... part of it has gone green, some is back to pink... weird. I don't mind that though. It's funky... right? *smiles*
OH! Best thing? We negotiated a price I'm happy with, and it's much, much cheaper than the other two salons I got quotes from, and it's way cheaper than going back to Auckland to get it done there. SCORE!
ABOVE: Too cute not to share... Steve bathing his boys last night. I wonder who enjoys the bubbles more?
Today my only JOB is to paint that freakin' bathroom unit. I ain't doing another bloody thing till it's done.
Some people are just so ... sad and pathetic. If blonde hair is so ageing, how come MOST older women have blonde/grey hair and look LOVELY?
I believe as long as you are happy with how you look, no one has the right to tell you any different. Well... as long as you ain't looking like a hag... as I'm sure ANONYMOUS looks.
Only jealous and mean spirited people attack others for no good reason, except to be nasty.
"Mirror, mirror on the wall...."
LYNDA: Yes, I got about 8 inches cut off the length about a month ago. It desperately needed it, and it was simply TOO long!
My painting is going... so-so. The undercoat kept clogging up and stopping the sprayer from working, but I persevered and it's getting better.
Waiting for the undercoat to dry now before putting the first coat of top coat on.
ABOVE: Brylee wears these slippers, inside and sometimes outside in the yard, ALL THE TIME.
Now I don't mind that she's wearing stinking hot slippers in summer, her feet an' all... but OMG... she drags and slides them along the floor when she walks.
The noise has finally done my head in... and I'm about to take them off her and throw them on the roof where she can't get them back! Or maybe I better just hide them?
Can't have the silly little tart trying to get on the roof I suppose. *sigh*
I wonder if the neighbours will hear her screams when I yank them off her feet? ha ha ha!
12.31 pm: The damn paint is taking FOREVER to dry! And it's only the undercoat! Oh well... I have managed to get heaps of other things done while waiting.
Tidied my sewing room so I could actually get in the door! Sorted out Christmas presents, found the gaps and wrote a list. Just a few odds 'n' ends to get now.
Brylee didn't scream when I removed her slippers! Totally didn't expect compliance, nope, not at all.
FFS ANON: Give it up! Me an 'old lady'?... like hell! I'm a middle aged Crabby Tart. And as for having age appropriate hair length, who the fuck said 'old ladies' couldn't have long hair?
I will NEVER have short hair, and god help anyone who tries to cut it when I am actually OLD! Family.... be aware.
AND... I don't think I look OLD at all! Pffffft.
Over this shit now! Moving on... I've finally managed to get the 1st top coat on the bathroom unit. It's looking good.
I will be very happy when it gets back in the bathroom, I've got towels and stuff all over the freakin' floor.
Yaaa, I got the last coat on the bathroom unit tonight. So, it's got all night to dry and set.
Dinner tonight was bacon and spring onion rice risotto... it was delicious. Stew is having left overs for lunch tomorrow.
Time to sign off for the day. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your lovely comments about my latest hair colouring.
