So I better write a proper entry as I promised one lol..........It was really late when I added those pics, plus you have to wait for them to load and then add a caption, etc......*yawn* ;)
Have you all had a good weekend? Here's a rundown of what I've been up too!!
Saturday - I got up early (8.30am, that's early for me ;-), and left the flat at 9am. I went to the hairdressers, jeez it was chilly outside!! Got into the hairdressers and they were very busy!! I had to stand up for a few minutes until a bloke moved from the waiting area. One of the hairdressers asked what I wanted but she didn't give me a time of how long I had to wait. Hey-ho, I had all day ;-) Well technically I did but officially I didn't!! Eventually just as I was giving up and succumbing to deleting my text messages so I wouldn't look.....well I don't know, one of the 'cutters' (can't be bothered to keep typing hairdressers) came up and asked what I wanted done etc and that I had to go to the basin for the wash. As I was being dealt with though, this woman and her daughter came into the shop and asked specifically for the lady who I had been given. She didn't want to cut my hair and let's face it I didn't want her to cut my hair lol..........She was the nasty woman I had, had before. I think I spoke about her on here somewhere!! Anyway I got another woman, who was very nice and didn't stop talking :o) Well if she's babbling then I don't have too lol....................
So once I was done in there I walked into town (yep up that hill again, what am I a glutton for punishment?? Nope just don't trust those buses!!) and made my way to the parcel collection place. This is the one thing wrong with ordering all your presents online. I had only been there on Thursday and here I was again!! Shall go there again before the weeks out I bet ya ;-)
I spent the morning going round town and trying to find something extra for Megs and mum. Everyone else had been relatively easy but not these two *groan* I popped into New Look in the new development in town. It's a larger store than it had been before and they do clothes in my size and I want a new top for New Years :o) Found a couple I like but not having any money decided I would wait. Also need to get a second opinion lol
Went into Evans (big mistake!!) Found a top I like, not to go out in, well I could but not dressy evening stuff. It's a hooded top which is pinky in colour with white markings of flowers and (this is the best bit) skulls and crossbones :o) Had to get it, even with no money!! I tell you I think I've brought more things for me than anyone else this december lol...........
Managed to get something else for mum, but I give up on Megs!! Mum has asked for a no-toy ban this year and that limits what I can get, but I do have an idea. I am not posting that idea cos as you know mum and megs read my journal ;-) They will find out soon enough.
Got home about 1pm, sat down had something to eat then cleaned the flat (very quickly, couldn't be bothered). Then dyed my hair, same colour as before just needed doing can't stand seeing those grey hairs grrrrrr......... Spent the rest of the afternoon reading journals, sorting out photobucket, typing up memories etc.
Today as usual I had a lie-in :-) Got up lazily, had a shower, then went for a walk. Stopped off at the Range to see if they have inspiration for Megs pressie but nope, so idea to be put into place. Went to Scumerfield for food items and walked home, very cold out there. Prefer it to be cold then raining to be honest with you!
When home I chopped my onion for the cottage pie I was gonna cook and then wrapped my pressies. Luckily there was just enough wrapping paper. The award for most annoying pressie to wrap goes to Trina and Greg this year ~ grrrrrrrrrrrrr at the pair of them!!
I've written some more xmas cards and watched the last Cranford (I cried, everyone was so happy :-) I love those period dramas. I'm now gonna go and watch some of my beloved Roger on youtube. I have a craving for him lol
Hope you have a good week xx
p.s glad you liked the piccies :-) Barry ~ yes they really did have a bike in their living room. Joan ~ I can't remember what type of car it was..........I shall find out for Stuart ;)
