Skyscrapers and String

Under The Heat!

Hello all!

Here I am sitting with foils in my hair at the Hairdressers again!

You can see I have my knitting with me, I am on the second front of my cardigan, it is an enjoyable knit!

When I go out for any reason, I always pack my knitting, it is amazing how much you can get done whilst on the bus or train.

My hairdresser Katy, is brilliant, she literally transforms my hair from straw into silk. Also, she is naturally and effortlessly beautiful, so you feel confident that in her hands, your hair will be successful.

I have played endless tricks on Katy, like the time I took a picture of my Blythe doll and asked for my hair to be cut the same.

It was a bit of a mean thing to do as she looked so shocked, but when I told her I was teasing she killed herself laughing ( relief lol )!

Katy has been a wonderful confidante over the years. As a working Mom we have a lot in common, although she has had her babies since I’ve known her. They are adorable, like their Mom!

I am knitting her a shawl for Christmas, in winter white. It will be a big surprise! She deserves it!

What is the etiquette at hair salons? I always bring knitting and a packed lunch, but in all the years coming here I have only seen other customers fiddle with their phones or look at the fashion magazines….

Here I am being combed out. I am cold and fidgety by this point, highlights and cut and style takes hours. I have been here 2.5 hrs already lol!


Once this is done, I’m going shopping for jam ingredients. I want to make a mixed jam of blackcurrants, raspberries and blueberries.

Oh, just a quick update on Jon, he is now Perfectly Fine, yesterday everything healed fine, considering I was stressed as he is on a high dose of blood thinning tablets following last years DVT. It was so kind of my friends here to send supportive messages! Thankyou all!!!

Here’s my hair all finished. Heading home now. That was jolly!

      • It’s ok… busy working (online) so not really noticing what’s going on in the outside world 😦 Also trying to book a hotel for Ally Pally but am having a nightmare… everything says ‘from £96.50 per night’ but when I try to book it is actually £396.50 per night…. might as well just book the Ritz !!! lol

        Yes, posh hotels are expensive! There’s a good little family hotel near me in Hornchurch called The Devonshire Hotel, however it’s about 90 minutes from Ally Pally. I’ll ask my friends in work if they know somewhere nearer. Xxx

      • Thanks.. we usually stay in an apartment in Kensington but as it is just myself and my Daughter we thought we would stay closer to Oxford Street… our plan is Thursday Madamme Tusauds, (sorry, can’t spell) Chockywockydooda and shopping, Friday Ally Pally and maybe a show in the evening leaving Saturday available for either more shopping or a return to Ally Pally, Sunday some more sightseeing and/or shopping flying back to Crete Sunday afternoon 🙂
