Back to blonde

I went to the hairdressers today and, 2.5 hours later, I am back to blonde.  I did try to take a photo of myself but, EWWW, I just could not get a good one.  Maybe if I had a different shirt, and some makeup, and TJL took it instead me attempting a self portrait I might get a passable photo, so maybe I will one day, just not today.  And I'm not blonde blonde, just quite a bit lighter than what I was.

So I made a start on making your home a haven  today.  I found this wooden sign in a little shop in our little village.  Its quite a neat wee shop, with a mix of secondhand and new clothes, and some gifts as well.

I plan to have it on my bedside table, so I see it every morning when I get up, and every night when I go to sleep.  It is one of those things that I need to remember to focus on.  Really, if you weighed my life all up it is probably a lot better than GOOD, it is in reality, pretty FANTASTIC!

And I also got this candle.  It's not very big, but it was all they had and, realistically, size does not matter.  I plan to have it on the, hmmmm, don't know what to call it.  It's not really a breakfast bar, but it is far too big to be a servery hatch window thing.  Its a large wall opening that goes from the kitchen to the lounge.  Anyway, the benefit of having it here is that I can see it from both rooms, and I plan to say a wee prayer each time I see it, regardless of whether it is lit or not.  Another benefit of placing it there is that I will have to tidy all of the rubbish off of the bench space, so my candle has pride of place.
