Long long long day!!!!



Today has been a very busy, long day!!! It started at 9am with an appointment in Chertsey, and then at 10am a quick drive to Weybridge train station for the fast train to Waterloo. Then two tubes to Covent Garden and a visit here to have my hair cut and roots done (!) by my lovely lovely lovely cousin Richard. Do you think we look alike? We're more kind of brother and sister than cousins because our Mums are identical twins - so we share more genes than the average cousins.

The colour (no more Myra Hindley black roots for me!) alone took two and half hours and the another hour for the haircut. All the while I was plied with coffee and biscuits by his lovely staff and totally pampered and taken care of.  The very best part is when the shampoo-ing person does a fabulous indian head massage when they've put the conditioner on your hair. For me that could have lasted the rest of the afternoon and I wouldn't have complained :)

Then I went to Oxford Street to meet Jo for mid-afternoon coffee and cake - then while Jo finished work I had a wee trip to Selfridges - where I spoilt myself by getting two very luxurious bottles of Chanel Nail Varnish. Not girly pink as is shown here though - oh no - I bought gothic black, and a very very dark purple. Tres chic !!!!

At 5pm Jo met me again when she had finished work and we got the tube back to Waterloo and then the train home. 
I got home - dragged Millie out for a quick walk, and then dashed up to the stables to see to Phoebe - by which time it was pitch black - so that was a task and a half - running around a stable yard when you can't see your hand in front of your face!!!

Then to the chip shop (again) to collect a fish supper for me and Su, then another quick dash to Byfleet to Su's house to deliver and eat supper before it went cold!!! After the fish and chips we had after dinner mints!!!!! How posh are we? 

The postman has been today and brought me a parcel which I suspect contains a birthday gift - so I won't open it until Tuesday!!! I am a very lucky girl!!!

I've had a lovely fun day - but am a bit tired now Zzzzzzzzzzzz

  3. I work three days a week Christian - that's twenty one and half hours!!! Contrast that to May and April and March this year when my average weekly hours were between 70 and 80 - I much prefer things as they are now :) See you next weekend !!!
