This week has gone by so fast
and it's good to stop still for
a few minutes and reflect on what's
been good about the week.
Luke cut my hair.
I know, I actually let him get near
my head with a pair of sharp scissors!
He needs practice cutting longer hair
and his boss suggested that I could
go in (thanks for that Rob!). Of course
I wanted to support my son............. ;o)
I had the full service;
wash, condition and chat about holiday
plans. I have to confess that I felt rather
self-conscious sitting in a very male
Listening in on the men's chat was funny -
football and food.
That was it.
I guess they might have discussed another
'F' had I not been sitting there.
I was really proud of Luke, how he
took instruction from his boss, kept on trying,
and, actually, how well he cut my hair.
I was able to cancel a 'proper'
hair appointment booked for yesterday.
I enjoyed catching up with my
dear friend, Dawn, yesterday.
It's her birthday today,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAWN!
We've been friends since we were 18
and both worked as
Fingerprint Officers at
New Scotland Yard.
Those were fun days *wink*
Our lives have moved in very different
directions and it's always a real pleasure
to meet up with her.
Hope is cooking our evening meal tonight.
She said she wanted to do more cooking.
I'm happy for her to do this, of course.
I was, however, expecting it to be something
like macaroni cheese etc.
Tonight we have a Jamie Oliver recipe;
grilled trout topped with mustard and oats,
served with baby new potatoes
and Spring vegetables.
(Trout fillets were on special offer in Morrisons,
which is rather handy).
Zumba was such fun this week.
Hope came too, which I like her to do.
Unfortunately she was downwind of
someone's, um, farty bottom
(sorry, I just couldn't find a nice way of putting that).
So when the Zumba instructor told us to take deep
breaths, poor Hope went kinda puce!
He he ;D
(I'm glad I wasn't standing where she was).
for being such a funny old lady.
for being my dear old friend.
I can't remember the last time he had a day off.
Work for him has been full on but he's just kept
plugging away, and still makes time for
all of us when he does get to spend any time
at home (and he still put the bins out for collection).
Well this little list pales into insignificance
compared to the Rocking Queen
Fancy joining in with the rest of
the Friday Rockettes?
(You'd be made very welcome,
and we'll pop by and read about
what's made your week better).
