I wonder how many of you will notice the changes around these parts.
I had the best day today, the best I've had in a very long time. It was terribly normal, fun and it was completely spontaneous.
At 9.30am I decided to ring hairdressing salons in the town I live in to see if there was any chance of getting an appointment today. The first hairdresser I rang had a slot at 12.15pm. What are the chances of that happening... on a Saturday no less.
In the 2 hours and 45 minutes that followed making the appointment I didn't once think of pulling out. Not once. Didn't even enter my head. That, is a complete first.
Gratuitous Before Shot
Before I forget! The jumper?
Remember I wanted the Topshop one but out of my current budget? I found this similar jumper new on Ebay from this seller for around a tenner. Bargain. I do wish I could find a longer one and this is only an 8 - 14 sizing so it's snug. Not too snug but not oversized and comfy.
Away I went!
The only thing that put me on edge was the chatty taxi driver. I don't do well with men out on my own. At all. And he was very chatty. Lovely! But well, chatty.
Anyway (chatty man aside) I arrived at Estilo Unisex Salon in Ballymoney.
I got my hair did :D
Couldn't resist ;)
Obligatory After Shot
Lighting wasn't very good, apologies I was ummm.... in Ground Espresso possibly having a ridiculously indulgent belgian waffle, chocolate sauce and ice cream combo (OMG) and of course some Suki Tea, whose Belfast Blend of tea is fast becoming my favourite ever tea.
The great thing about Ground in Ballymoney is they have a play area for kids which has been essential in me loosening the ties on Riley and letting him be a bit more independent. The staff indulge him every time and are always polite. Always. I've not had one bad customer service experience yet and I actually feel comfortable going there. It's a delight for Lee, whom I think has fallen in love with their coffee and bacon bagels...
So yes! Good day all round! We even found a second hand Drum Kit in a charity shop for Riley (I say Riley but Lee was playing it a fair bit more than the child....) Either which way, more of these days please? I really, very much, enjoyed myself. I feel tired but accomplished.
Plus! New Hair!
Hope you're liking the changes and I hope you're having a great weekend whatever you're doing.
