Made a visit to the hairdressers yesterday, me for a perm to make mine look at least presentable, and K for her usual ‘short as possible without shaving’ look. Took some photos on the walk up there. It was trying its damnedest to rain, kept spitting and the dark clouds overhead looked ominous. We had to have something done in readiness for our ‘break away’ coming up very soon. My hair tends to get where I can’t do it myself when its straight, and as my long term readers will know, as soon as K’s gets any longer than an inch or so, she just has to have it shorn. Annoying for me, seeing as only the other day another shopper in Tesco’s said to me,
I’ve no doubt that you have all heard of Sod’s Law. That famous law that tends to occur to all of us on occasions at some point or another during our lifetimes. In my case it happens more often than not, and usually involves the exact same laws occurring time and time again. Here’s the list. See if any of them regularly happen to you. All of the following I can guarantee will tend to occur to me more or less on a daily basis.
We’ve both been to the hairdressers for our hair doing. A perm for me and K a wash cut and blow dry. This time it wasn’t our usual hairdresser, she has left for pastures new. It was the salon owner doing the honours today. I actually prefer how she has done K’s, especially her fringe but I don’t think K is as suited about it. Mine looks okay, I’ll be able to tell better when I try to style it myself later.
It was another lovely sunny day as well, and quite a busy ‘rushing about’ one for me. First of all, I had to escort daughter down to the Adult Education Centre for her cookery class which began at ten o’clock. Why? Because the day care staff are having a training day. After dropping her off, I then rushed across town for some Grape Juice for me as I was running out and forgot to buy any yesterday, then back to the ATM outside the bank to withdraw some cash to pay for our hair do’s, a quick dash to the bus station for the bus.
Home, then before I’d blinked or had time to catch my breath it was time to walk back down to collect K at 12.30pm. Back to bus station caught the bus home, some dinner, a quick browse on the Internet then a brisk walk up to the hairdressers for my 3.00pm hair appointment.
Now back home I am sitting down composing this blog for you to read and literally catching my breath as I do so. I feel exhausted! It’s a wonder to be honest with you that I didn’t meet myself coming back.
