So, I decided, after being utterly disgusted with my hair, to start a regimen of vitamins that are supposed to be really good for hair growth and I think they’re working!  It’s growing pretty fast, which is excellent news, although right now, I still hate my hair.  I decreed that I am never cutting my hair short ever again.  Yeah right… lol.

Anyway, moving on.  What’s new at the house?  Nothing much to be honest.  I washed the carpets this weekend as we had a flood in the playroom.   Hmmm… we’re waiting on some inheritance money from John’s Dads ‘estate’ and our tax rebate.  Mum is coming to visit in a month, which we’re all very excited about.

I need to post “before, during and after” pictures of our back yard, so watch this space for that.

Nothing else to report!


Channeling Julia :  “Big Mistake.  HUGE!”

What was I thinking?  Well, in all honesty, what I was thinking is that my ends were really badly split from a bad dye job and subsequent repair a couple of months ago that no amount of conditioning was going to fix, and that a really good short CHOP! was about the only way I could see of improving the situation.   However, by the time I got from the Salon to the car I was thinking: “Oh. My. Gosh.  What have I done?!”

It’s too short for me.  I look like a manic, overweight, slightly deranged, pixie.  It’s kind of cute though, in a manic, overweight, slightly deranged, pixie sort of way.  If I can just get used to it and try and make the front sit the way I want, I think it might not be so bad.   I said to John earlier : “It wouldn’t be so bad if the front wouldn’t keep going in two different directions”, to which he added : “Three, if you could straight up!”.  Thanks, Dear.  Always know I can rely on you….. lol.

So, there you have it.  Bad hair month coming up for me.  This said, I’ve just finished researching what vitamins can help hair grow strong and healthy and FAST!

Have a GREAT day!  Bah!







*runs screaming from the room to bury her head in the sand*

I’ve been trying to move this blog to a new host, but I cannot as it doesn’t appear that when I download my file for export that it takes the pictures.  So I’m a little stuck and as a result haven’t been updating much whilst I try and figure out what to do!

In the meantime, Tom lost his first tooth!  Whooo Hooooo!!!!!

Here’s a picture!



Now, in the UK this would be “Labour” but as it’s a US holiday, I’m going to defer to your spelling!

Here’s some pics snapped in the back yard this afternoon.


And a flower …

Introducing our newest family member…. Miss Grace.  Also known as “Our Little Princess” … she’s going to be spoiled rotten!

Edited to add : Oh, and I bought some flowers yesterday.

I’ve been working a lot with my external flash this past couple of weeks and I have to say, I love it!  Not the flash alone, but the flash combined with the Demb Flip-it…. oh, I’m in love!

Anyway, some pictures to share from the end of the day yesterday with my boys.

Enjoy!  (There are more on my flickr Photostream ~ see left sidebar)
