Yesterday was my birthday. I was literally 21 again (you can work it out!!).
I actually went into a bit of a Birthday Grump, which isn't really like me. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that its been so hot recently I haven't been able to manage more than a couple of hours unbroken sleep per night, which had left me feeling more than a bit cranky!!
I did manage to rally myself though and had a lovely day. I was extremely spoiled by Himself and my lovely family and the Barbie Army has 4 new recruits - including a Ken who looks disturbingly like Mark Owen from Take That!!
Other news is that I have had my hair chopped. Its never been the same since I tried very unsuccessfully to bleach it a few weeks ago. I made another mistake though by getting layers cut in, forgetting of course that it always looks fab when my hairdresser drys and styles it; but tends to look like a well-used mop when I do!! I am liking its shortness though, much quicker to wash and cooler at night - I have extremely thick hair and it gets very hot under there!!
We went shopping today at the Metro Centre http://www.metrocentre.uk.com/. I was meant to be looking for clothes for my new job, which I start on Monday; however, I came home with a new skirt, dress and two tops, none of which are really work-friendly!! they were all reduced in the sales though (apart from one top but I got a 10% discount on it as it was a display model!!).
I also got these shoes http://tinyurl.com/39tag3c
Anyone who knows me will be aware that I don't do high heels, largely because I cannot walk in them in the slightest, but I NEEDED these shoes and if necessary I will use a zimmer frame whenever I wear them!
