I was very brave this morning and I went to "Just Cuts" to have my hair trimmed. (I have almost the same fear of hairdressers that I do of my Dentist). My hairdresser left and I changed salons, then my new one left and my old one came back and I went to her again but.....etc, etc. Anyway it all boils down to the fact that I felt I needed a change again and "Just Cuts" is only down the road now, so I braved it. Guess what! a very nice trim for only $21! Really nice girl, friendly place and I will go again. I waited with wet, stringy hair outside the salon at 9am, so I could be first and get out quickly. I decided not to have a blow wave, just made a run for the door and came home and styled my hair. I HATE anyone washing my hair. I HATE the massage that they give you in the salons and so I was pleased to be able to wash my hair before I went (washed it again when I came home and styled it). I had tried "Just Cuts" in Newcastle some years ago, but didn't realise they would leave my hair wet and hanging, so I wasn't impressed, as I had arranged to stay at the shopping centre for the afternoon and I looked like a drowned rat. Anyway, now I have one close to home and I can be prepared, I am quite happy. They do now dry your hair for an extra $6 anyway (if you want it), so that's good.
I have been very slack with exercise this week. I haven't been to the gym and have had a really hungry week. NOT GOOD!!! Hopefully my motivation will return soon!
I have been visiting the Op Shops this week looking for knitting patterns. Found lots for 20 cents each! Knitting needles were only 50 cents a pair! I love Op Shopping! Got really carried away the other afternoon looking at patterns and then realised I had been there for 2 hours! I reckon the person at the counter must have thought I wanted to take up residence!! Anyway I had fun!
Other exciting news! Subway is coming just down the road from my place. It is being built as we speak! (Doesn't take much to make me excited these days!).
Hope you are all having a fantastic week!
