Thursday

Good morning, everyone.  First of all, thank you for the lovely comments yesterday; they were truly appreciated.

Sharon came round as expected and an hour later I felt a new person.  Although I have never done this, I can understand why some people have their hair done more regularly.  It is such a good feeling and a very relaxing time.

Beth was round too as Sharon does her hair at the same time.  She couldn't stay for long afterwards biut we did have time for a chat and to arrange my Christmas present as Beth is taking me out to dinner.  We've decided on Prezzo - we both like Italian, it's easy to get to in town, it has a really great vegetarian menu and it's not outrageously expensive.  I'm so looking forward to it!
(woo hoo!!!)
We have decided that we really ought to have a mum/daughter meal out together once a month.  Nothing lavish, just local, but there's some nice little eating places around here that don't cost a bomb so we're spoilt for choice.

Just before twelve I popped off to Lindsey's for my hour of personal torture - I mean, training.  I'm well into the swing of it now and she's starting to introduce more challenging elements.  I can certainly feel my arms this morning!

I rushed home again for a quick lunch before my friend, L, turned up for a cuppa and a chat and we talked pretty much non stop for over two hours before she had to go.  It was lovely and we will repeat the experience but maybe at the Flyer next time.

By the evening I was so, so tired.  I kept nodding off so, in the end, I went up to bed at just after eight and slept the clock round until just before five this morning.  I rarely sleep as long as that and now feel most refreshed!

Today was going to be a very busy day!

Some of my family are coming here for lunch.  Nothing posh but it will be lovely to have them all round and I've made a big casserole which, with rice and veg, will fill us up nicely.

Then it was going to be tuition but, because I wasn't sure of timings, I have moved that until tomorrow.

Then it was going to be pottery but I had an email saying that because of tutor availability (I presume they meant unavailability really) there would be no pottery this week.  That's disappointinmg because I wanted to see if I could have another, more successful go at the candle stand.  However, they've tacked an extra session on the end of this term so that's OK.

As it turns out, I could have done tuition today after all, but I'm not going to mess the parents about by changing it again.  Anyway, it means I can get properly cleared up after the family has left rather than shoving it all in the kitchen and shutting the door.

I'm really looking forward to today.  You have a good one too, OK?  xx

  2. Morning Joy. I love having my hair done, always makes me feel 'me' again. I'm very lucky that my lovely friend and neighbour 2 doors away is a hairdresser, so I don't have far to go for a haircut! Enjoy your family meal today. xx

  3. There’s something therapeutic reading about another persons days. Maybe it takes away from our own lives for a bit , you’ve had a good day and the pottery class sounds so exciting, something I’ve always wanted to try. Thank you for sharing with us.

    1. I know what you mean. I also enjoy reading the everyday exploits of other and some I feel have become friends.
      I really love the pottery classes - I'm no artist but they are satisfying and really hands on too.

  4. My hair desparately needs a cut - a few inches off the bottom, it gets to the point of being too long. There was so much going on before Christmas I cancelled, but it has grown so quickly.
    Sometimes a good sleep is just what we need.

    1. That is the thing with hair. It stays OK and then, suddenly, it's too long and really annoying! Can you get an appointment soon?
      Sleep can be underrated until you really need it - then it's the best thing in the world!

  5. My hairdresser has gone to Tasmania for a year, so I'm going to have to find a new one. I'm thrilled for her going off on an adventure, but I've never had a bad haircut by her, so I'm sad that she won't be cutting it this year, if ever again.

    1. Oh, no. Losing a good hairdresser is rather a disaster really. I do hope you find someone else just as good.

    1. lol - somewhat confusing at time, I'm sure. Everyone's gone now, the dishwasher is doing the necessary and the rest of the day is free. Nice.
