Anyway readers, it's finally happened. After walking around for the best part of 14 months without seeing a hairdresser, I've managed to come to my senses and sort my barnet out.
Before I booked the appointment, it was brassy,dry, tortoiseshell cat-esque and just.........on the scale of Worzel Gummidge, 9 out of ten......
It's the peril of living on the south coast I guess.
So I sorted it out. And now I love my tresses again.
I look a bit like a fat Nigella. It's all glossy and swishy and swirly. Well, it was when I left the salon anyway.
In the UK, it's Mothers Day today. I've had a lie-in, I have had the full English breakfast treatment, opened gifts with my Mum in Law (that's MIL, not MILF....ahem) and generally had a wonderful time. My own mum was in Devon all weekend with my dad, celebrating 39 years of marriage. I salute them.
So the MIL and I had a great day doing NOTHING!
|We opened gifts|
|YAY!!!! Chocolate bath bombs!|
|I also got the CD I fell in love with at my friend Sharease's house. |
It's The King and his album Gravelands.
Google The King James Brown if you haven't heard of this Irish postman.
|My kids aren't so bad after all!|
Being a mum is flaming hard work at times but I have lovely moments. Like this, watching the Princess (unaware) as she is lost in the world of Harry Potter. I sit and watch her beautiful little face quite often, when she doesn't know.
|Yep that's my giant granny blanket. |
A year on, STILL trying to finish it!
It's been a busy old time recently.The Princess dressed as Charlie Bucket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for World Book Day.
I have been working hard, snatching moments when I can find peace in the house.
My mother and father in law came down Thursday afternoon for three nights. We ate and drank and had a good time.
|We went out on Sat for an early Mother's Day lunch |
and to celebrate my father in law's birthday
I haven't frequented many cherry tree shops recently but did grab this last week from the West Sussex Horse Trust shop.

|£1 my darlings. One gold nugget.|
|Would love to be more like Pollyanna|
|LOVE the illustration|
She was an absolute rock for me when we had the stressful time of having to find a new home fast (landlord sold the house, giving us just 8 weeks to find somewhere new) and deciding to relocate and then finding a new home, before finally buying. I love her to bits - she is a "radiator" friend.
|Enjoying a leetle gin|
|Love the way they write your booking on the table!|
|Several glasses of wine later.....|
|Our 19th attempt at a drunken photo where we were all actually in the frame!|
And so now the cold weather looms yet again. We are expecting a little snow tomorrow.
Last Wednesday, I walked to the sea and back and the weather was stunning. When I got home, the sun streamed through the hall. I took this pic as I knew it wouldn't last.
|Sunshine but not for long...|
Hoping to check out some cherry tree shops that I haven't been in before. I shall keep you posted.
Oh and for those fans of one of my fave films Wish You Were Here, I took this just for you:
|The cinema is great. You can buy booze from the bar and take it in with you!|
