But the hair gods were not smiling on me or my poor hairdresser today! We decided to add a slightly darker colour to break up the blonde a bit. Well to cut a long story short (as I don't have time now) the red in it grabbed and I ended up with blonde and a very subtle but noticeable red/PINK tinge - not so bad if you're 22 and not 42! So she started again combing bleach onto the pink bits to get it out, well I ended up bright solid coppery blonde with no roots at all showing, ten times worse!
By this time my poor longterm hairdresser & I are both getting a little concerned. So she tests another colour with no visible red that's darker and then pulls it through the cap to fix the problem. Well it worked 90%, except I am now darker than I wanted to be and it's blonder in area's but it's at least ok to be seen out in public. We made another appointment Thursday to get it properly sorted out....but oh boy did I ever not need this today of all days - I was in there 5 hours!
Just spoke to my mum who is now packing at 10:45pm the night before her flight at noon tomorrow, because she decided to garden earlier, oh and watch the tennis!! Don't even get me started on that one and why she is therefore always so wiped out when she arrives, but still blames the journey?!?! [takes deep breath!]
So excuse me folks if I don't get the video or any other piccies up today, I will after she's here.
IN THE MEANTIME....I made myself look like a right 'numpty' today out of sheer determination to track down this gorgeous little shrub. You see it's planted right along the McDonalds drive-through line and so I had to walk past all the cars to take this picture! No doubt I got some very odd looks - so please somebody identify this shrub??
OK - off to finish tidying the house up as we leave early tomorrow!
