Do you ever wish you were 18 again.

I sometimes look back at old photographs of myself, and  think what the hell was I complaining
about  I was such an uncomfortable young person  not a child anymore but not an adult either, I had short hair with a high quiff for a fringe, which I kept up with a whole bottle of Silverkrin hairspray that cost me 10 pence  from the indoor market in town,  I hated my hair it was dark and thick and stuck up if I didn't put a wet brush through it to calm it down, all I wanted to be is blonde, like Joanne from next door who had teenage boys salivating after her, fancy living in the shadow of that golden Princess there was I trailing after her, Oh look there is Joanne and her friend. 
  Joanne was a really nice person "Bitch" I thought in my head, no she was a really nice friend, honestly.I was a trainee hairdresser at the time and worked very hard in a town center salon I loved my job and the people I worked with, I had a really nice time, I had finished with a boyfriend that …

                                   What the hell has happened  to my hair.
It's now the end of the Summer and  I have at the minute the most driest hair you will ever imagine, what the hell has happened  to it, it has been so hot and humid this year that is has taken it's toll on my  usually well behaved locks,  I have a conditioner  that I usually use but it's not doing the trick it's not bad when I first wash it, but the next day I wake up looking like th…

22nd August 2018
A couple of weeks ago I stumbled on this little gem on BBC 1, Age Before Beauty, Tuesday's 9.00 pm, I binged watched the first two episodes on BBC i player in one weekend and had decided to stick with it, It's about a beauty parlor the main character  Bel played by Polly Walker comes back to work at the salon years after leaving, she is brought back to revive it after her jealous sister almost  runs it  into the ground the main plot is that Bel's husband starts to have an affair with  a younger attractive  women the plot has many twist's and turns at first I thought it wouldn't be very good, and that's why it was shoved into the Summer slot when everyone is on holiday but I have been very pleasantly surprised  and now am hooked I will watch  episode 4 after finishing posting here feet up after another very busy day.  Catch this if you can episode five is on next Tuesday or catch up with BBC i player…

Lovely Day and Fantasy Dinner Party Guest, Princess Diana.

21st August 2018                                     


         Woke up this morning,  boiling hot and with a headache, for some reason here in the U.K over night it must have gone up 10 degrees. I quickly got out of bed and pushed open the window's to try to let the non existing breeze in, then  got back into bed, today dear reader's I had a number of appointment's,  this week is going to be one of those weeks I think, you can  almost feel the holiday vibe of the last few weeks ending and it's becoming business as usual, I lay there thinking about this morning and what was going to be said, lets just say by 11 am all went well,  still a lot to think about though.  I had a bowl of soup for lunch just about cleaned up and some of my loved one's came  over to visit, and a surprise visitor which was unexpected,  I spoke to a friend just before tea, to arrange Birthday plans, for her Birthday on Thursday evening, they have all been sorted and we should…

I Found A Coat I Love Shall I Buy It Now?

20th August 2018

      Yes as my title says I have actually found a coat I love shall I buy it now? I have been looking for a coat for the Autumn  and have been looking around mainly online, I want a coat that is not to expensive warm because Winter's in the UK can get cold and a nice colour,  more importantly one that doesn't make me look like the Michelin man on a bad day. I have found the perfect one in one of my favorite online store's Asda George,  I love the deep plum colour  perfect for Autumn days and I want a hood, because I love to walk outside. I love the fur trim and it's reversible and a bargain at £45.00, to buy or not to buy that is the question? Here's the link  https://direct.asda.com/george/womens/coats-jackets/reversible-hooded-padded-coat/GEM618069,default,pd.html
