but once you get started, it sometimes ends up long So, yet another week has whizzed past. Only five more days and we’ll be in Dorset visiting grandchildren. This week has seen me radically change the colour of my hair, Travis at the vets and an 80th birthday party. First my hair, is it the time of year or something but nearly everyone at work has been toying with the idea of doing ‘something different’ (hairwise!). I had only intended to have a small change to autumn colours but my hairdresser persuaded me to go dark, something I’ve always shied away from. However, faced with a dare (almost!) I’m up there with the rest and am so chuffed I did. Here’s a hint of what it’s like The underneath is black and then you can see the beautiful purple colour it is on top!
After all the shenanigans with Charley last weekend, it was Travis’s turn to have our whole attention on Wednesday. Poor lad had gone down with a dreadful tummy upset which is defying a course of antibiotics at the moment (3rd day). We’ve had rather a lot of messes to clear up, yikes! Just hoping and praying that Charley doesn’t pick it up as they are particularly ‘up close and personal’ right now while she’s in season, (what a floozie!). I hasten to add that Travis has been neutered but it doesn’t stop him from being ‘interested’ !
Last night saw us at a family do in a fabulous Chinese restaurant/hotel. We took over a room to celebrate Dave’s BIL’s dad’s 80th, a wonderful old gent who I’ve known for years as I taught his grandchildren. It was lovely to officially become a part of his family when Dave and I met nearly 9 years ago. It was a raucous evening with hoards to eat and drink. I didn’t overdo the food at least though as Chinese is not my thing…too much MSG and vinegar for my liking but I still found lots of nice bits and pieces (namely the crispy duck and rice!).
