Today I'm finally getting my hair done 'professionally'!

It's been a good couple of years since I got it coloured in a salon, and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm getting a hair cut at the same time too.  Thinking of getting some layers put in.  Not sure yet.  My hair is not as thick as it once was!

After talking about making Club Sandwiches in my Tupperware Jel-ring, a long time blog friend (PAULA), sent me a bunch of recipes for the Jel-ring!  Thanks Paula, much appreciated. 

I am sure I will find some good ideas among that lot.  *smiles*

Right... first up for the day.... for the foreseeable future, I'm off to water me grass seed... until it turns into grass.
Then I can finally do a 'before' and 'after' photo of our entirely NEW back yard.

It is NOTHING like it used to be.  And we are incredibly happy with it.


ABOVE:  Breakfast.  NO, not all of them!  Just some.  Before the birds eat them all.  Grrrrr.

Stew's new passport is supposed to arrive today. Once that is here, we have most things ticked off in readiness for our little trip over to Australia next month.  

Right, I'm off to do some sewing.

LOL... famous last words.  I haven't sewn a thing.  I've been fluffing around outside.
Out my Studio window in fact.

Remember I bought that black fabric-y thing to hang and put plants in a while ago?  Yeah.  Not gunna use it.
I've got heaps to water now as it is without adding yet another thing to the list.

It can wait till I think of another use for it.  

ABOVE:  A small improvement.  Now... I will sew!

1.12 pm:  And I've done some sewing, Yaaa go me.
The passport is now with the couriers, so SHOULD be delivered this afternoon sometime.  It's been sitting in the Hamilton Depot since 8 this morning.  

I just heard from Griffin, he reckons he will be home tonight.  Yep. Heard that before too.  His broken tooth, that got repaired last Wednesday, fell off again. 

ABOVE: it's hot under here... and the lighting in here sucks. Not flattering at all. 
Change of plans with my hair too. She wouldn't do a full head of foils as my hair is too damaged, so only the top is being done today. It has made the cost less, which is rather awesome too.

5 pm:  home from the salon.  I'm fairly happy with the hair colour... it's  a start on keeping it the colour I like, and healthy too.

No cut today, it's short enough!

ABOVE:  As you can tell, she tried not to colour the ends as that would have damaged them even more.

Although it's not quite what I wanted, it's better to be safe than BALD.

The stylist certainly knew her stuff.  
Sadly, she won't be there for much longer as she is having her first baby in 4 months.

Hopefully someone else in that salon is a conscientious as 'S'. 

We are having a silly bugger dinner tonight. Chicken steaks, baked beans and spaghetti on toast.  lol
*** Should be yummy ***.

So dinner was good.  Just the three of us again.
I'm struggling to keep me eyes open and it's only 10.20 pm!  So, off to bed for me.  See ya tomorrow.

    If you have bangs put in make sure they're long enough over your eyes so you don't notice the sloping flower box thing. Ha ha! Shame they couldn't make it level.

    2. Kinda an unnecessary comment really, as the new flower bed is on SLOPING GROUND, and it would have looked naff level. Well... that's our opinion anyway.

      exactly, you should all be used to things haveing a bit of character or pizzazz to them at Ma and Pa's I'm mean just look at the fence 😊
      hope your day is better than your comment Annon lol 😂

  4. You're only going to be a couple hours away from me! :)

    1. Well... we will be there from 18th till about the 24th. You could always 'pop' in! lol

  5. Have fun trying out the new recipes ... will look forward to seeing photos in the future. Enjoy the pampering at the hairdresser today.

  7. Haha, great photo - it's just so unflattering sitting in the hairdresser's chair isn't it! I hope the hair turns out well.

  8. Glad your hair stylist sounds like she knows what she talking about not just take ya money not give toss about the consequences

    1. Yep, I'm glad she wasn't just out to make a buck.

  9. Hair looks nice and healthy...
