Red Head!

Here's me with my new red hair!

I like being a red head and I do it from time to time. This is the fourth time I have gone ginger! And this time it's pretty much the colour I wanted!

First time was a 1 day wash in wash out effort when I was about 13 on holiday and you could hardly see it

Second time I was about 15 using a tempory wella mouse thing and while I looked brilliant while I was keeping it up, it turned my hair pink when i tried to wash it out

Third time I was 18 at Uni and I had all my lovely long hair chopped off, dyed copper with gold streaks, but it came out bright orange with yellow stripes and I looked like a fat version of the girl from Fifth Element.

This time I used the same dye kit I use for my blonde hair but in this Morello Cherry with Copper Red. I wish I had put a few more streeks in it, but i was a little shy of getting it horribly wrong. I shouldn't have worried, I have been blonding up my naturally dark blond hair with this stuff for years and I know what I'm doing, so when my grey roots show next I'll be buying it again and enjoying the highlights a bit more.

haven't had chance to show it off yet though, as we DIDN'T go to Oz's birthday curry (shock horror) but I'm off down to Jacquies for the Bon Jovi concert soon so I can show it off then can't I?

Hummmm.... Must go shopping for red-head fashions!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

I hate the female body... sometimes (MEN, DON'T READ)

It's not so much that I hate it, as I hate what it does sometimes.

I am sure you all already know that I am off the Depo Jab now and am back on the pill after 8 years. it's microgynon 30 for those of you who might want to know. I was really worried about what my body was going to do to me with the switch over. I have heared all kinds of horror stories about coming off the Depo Jab (good and bad stories here) like having 6 month long heavy periods and all kinds of nastyness. I hate having periods. That's one of the reason why I started the Depo in the first place!

When I think about it, the are plently of things I hate my body doing, like sneezing, hiccuping, and basically anything that it desides to do all on it's own that disrupt what ever I'm doing. Sneezing it a pet hate of mine as I swear it's SO dangerous to sneeze when your driving! Your eyes close and your body spazems... it's can be safe!

So the thought of having to spend 1 week out of 4 either stuffin…
