Hello happy smiley friends.....
Well your all going to be amazed as I have been out again! My mum popped round for a visit the other day and I was rather down and feeling like the world was against me...
Then out of the blue mum said I am taking you to the hairdressers! For a pick me up... She thought it would cheer me up. I was thrilled, but the thought of going out literally is a logistic nightmare. It's such an effort to dress, the pain levels are through the roof... But I kept thinking of my new hair do! Han got Bob out and off we went! Han assured me Bob would be fine in the hairdressers. So it's mum me and Han, off for new hair doos!
My hair was looking awful, seriously awful. I cannot remember the last time it was sorted out.... With me being so ill I have not had the chance to go anywhere.
Omg... Look at my before hair! Awful!
Grey, grey and more grey! And silver!!! Now I have a major issue with this as I really don't feel old enough to have grey hair! It drags me down and makes me feel awful. So I can see why my mum wanted to take me to the hairdressers! Ha ha
In the hairdressers I stayed sat in Bob, it was tough after about an hour, but I stuck it out. Han took some photos...
Ha ha can't see much going on there! Maybe this next one....
Oooooh yes! You can see colours!!
And then ....
It's so much better....just makes me instantly feel better and happier... Thanks mum!!
Then it was Hans turn, oh of course she joined in! And what would Han do? Changed her hair colour!!
Any clues there? She wanted up the back of her head shaved underneath..... Apparently it's when she wants to put it up it's easier? Her hair!!
And here is Hans new hair colour! The back has the same colour on top and a dusky pink underneath.... It's actually really pretty. The main thing, Han loves it!
And my mum... Oh yes she had her hair coloured too and restyled! You can see where I get my grey/silver from now!
I love my mums hair, it's so pretty... You think?
So that is what I have been up to! You can imagine by the time I got back home I was exhausted and almost fell asleep. I stopped myself from sleeping as I knew I would not sleep during the night, and oh my word! Sleeping at night is a nightmare already without napping! So in a bid to keep myself awake I thought I would give you all a blog update!
Stitching wise...hmmmm something I will share with you all that I am erm..... Not so happy about :(
It's the lovely Easter stitch I started some time back...
I mean look at it!!! It's adorable! I had started to stitch it..
Now if I have a chart I follow it.... I just can't get passed using other threads not on charts. It's obviously an issue I have! I try but then just don't have the confidence to go through with the change, that's when I end up not stitching it or regretting starting it!
Well I started this lovely Easter stitch...followed the right threads.. I was following DMC ...
Jon helped me get all the right threads from my stash.. I had all the DMC threads, so started stitching.
Aaarrrggggghhhhh!!! Oh my gosh! I was merrily stitching away thinking, ok my bunny is a different colour?! I looked at the picture on the chart and WOW! how could this be?? Look at my stitching of the bunny! I have a 'grey' bunny!! It's the colour on the chart!!
Here is the whole stitch...
I am pleased I actually finished it, but not sure I like the finished look? Maybe one day I will pluck up the courage to stitch with other colours? It's like a mental block of sorts....
Moving on....loving my salads! Mmmm
I am continuing to try food but seems like nothing is helping... And now my food intake has reduced drastically. I am not sure why, but if you think of an adult plate of food, say a typical meal... Portion it into 4 parts and that is what I eat during the day. Maybe less depending upon how much water I drink..ha ha I can't take both in! As far as my health issues go... I have to wait for my GP to get back to me to see what has been organized........ Yes more waiting!
Jon did, bless him try me on something new...
Just because there was no meat in it! I tried it but the smell and texture just was not agreeing with me... I tried it! :(
Of course I have been stitching bbzzzzzzzzzzing things! Ha ha more on that later! And I have the Joyful World April to stitch.... It's adorable. If you have not seen this I have a link in my side bar.
Hope your all well? I want to thank you all for commenting on my last few posts... Your all so kind and I am so happy I blog to have such nice friends.
Remember in my last post I asked for a caption for the photo of Han.....
It was rather a silly photo of Han being 'normal'! Ha ha
Han looked at everyone's comments and chose.........
