Thursdays news!

Good evening peeps.

I haven't managed to post anything interesting (do I ever?) for a day or two and I guess today won't be much different either!

Yesterday I went to the hairdressers and had a cut and colour and paid the horrendous sum of.........well, let's just say it's beans on toast for a couple of weeks! Why does the hair salon have to be so very expensive? I'm damn sure the hairdressers themselves don't work for £40,  £50 or whatever per hour either.
I know I could always go to a different salon and perhaps pay less but, truthfully, I've been with the same hairdresser for about 10 years now and can't face change in case it's crap!!!
So, for now I love the cut and colour but I'm dreading washing and styling it myself as it won't look the same at all!
Felt quite unwell in the evening though so had an early night hoping for a good nights sleep - which I didn't have so been tired all day today.

And, talking of today, I went to the hospital for xrays on my ankles as I've probably got arthiritis in them and mobility is very painful. But, what a faff with the buses! One bus to get there but 2 to get home and then a taxi for the last leg. Ridiculous non-bus service at tea time!

I have been busy with some scrapbooking in my craft room over the last few days but I have managed to make a few cards just for fun. Sometimes it's nice just to let creativity flow and make whatever feels good at the time instead of following the 'challenges'.

I'm off to see my friend in Canterbury tomorrow with two other friends Jason and Michellebelle! He who works very hard is meeting us there as he is currently in London and it makes sense for him to travel from London to Kent as opposed to travelling back to Leyland then down to Kent!!!! Really looking forward to seeing her again (and her eldest son Giannis and his girlfriend). She lives in Zakynthos and is only visiting here for two weeks so lots of gossip and nattering to catch up on.

Right, all that news has tired me out so I'm signing off for a few days.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy Monday peeps!

The amount of jobs I've had to do this morning has been incredible!
Isn't it amazing how, when you start one job, another pops up and inbetween doing these (faffing about like a blue- ar**d fly) the phones keep ringing! Landline and moby - like the chuffin telephone exchange it is

I got up uber early this morning, 6 am to wave his nibs off til Friday but not before I sent him on his way with a couple of sausage buns wrapped in tin foil - and no, I don't add little notes to a lunch-box either!!!

Hopefully the weather stays nice today. It makes a change to look out and see some sunshine and the birdies in the garden splashing about in a little water bath i have for them. I thought it would be too cold for a bird-bath but apparently not. They love splashing about and some of them even form a queue and wait for their turn! Cute :)
I keep meaning to take photos of them but by the time i get downstairs, they've flown away!
Next time I'll be waiting!

So now I have a coffee and time to indulge my crafting passion but not before I enter this card into the following challenge
