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!
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
