Well, here it is, just shy of my 1st anniversary on blogger, my hundredth post.
This is another one of those 'haven't-had-time-for-a-long-post-in-a-while-so-time-to-play-catch-up' posts. Stick around though, I'll have a dig around and find something good to end on.
Sooooo lets see, what have I been up to lately? *racks brain*. I've been spending a lot of time just hanging out with Fi lately because she was staying with her parents who live around the corner from me for a couple of weeks, so we've been making the most of it before her parents move. On Sunday Fi came over in the afternoon for a BBQ, we spent the afternoon sitting out in the sun, then I dropped her back at her parents place and went to babysit my beautiful nephew Riley while Steve and Christina went to a concert. Riley is now 10 months old and scooting all over the place. He's a cheeky little giggle-pot so we had fun. He had a nap for about 2 hours before his dinner then stayed up til Steve and Chris got home at midnight, so hopefully they will have gotten a bit of a sleep in.
On Monday night Fi called me very distressed after getting some bad news and needed to be with friends, I was busy at the time so Ross went round to her place and I met them there and we all went back to my place and got exceptionally drunk. I have discovered V (guarana) and vodka. Whoa. Makes for a good night as long as you don't plan on getting much sleep. We spent most of the night outside sitting at the table, lying on the grass, and generally mucking around. We went to bed around 3.30am. Tuesday was spent recovering.
One of the good things that came out of Monday night was that before we got too drunk we managed to work out when we are seeing the Priscilla: Queen of the Desert musical and got tickets. Now I just hope everyone coughs up the money soon since I'm about $470 out of pocket.
On Wednesday Fi and I had a girly day. We met at the shops to get hair stuff, then back to my place to bleach my hair. We used a tipping cap with the result that my hair is now multicoloured brown, blond, and a coppery ginger. My hair was still a bit damp in the photo so its not really true to colour but it gives you an idea. I was a bit nervous about overdoing it as I've never used peroxide before and was weary of my hair going brittle so we didn't leave it in as long as we could have. I am going to go over it with deep red, but might stay like this for a few days first. I go burgundy from time to time but on my dark hair it really only shows up as a tint, now it should be really vivid. As I've never bleached before this also serves as a test for 'Shave for a Cure', which involves either shaving or colouring your hair to raise money for cancer. I'm planning on doing it next year. My hair has coped fine with the bleach so now I know I can do it again and dye a really out-there colour over the top. I would only shave if I raised a huge amount of money, since my hair grows quite slowly.
Now, in celebration of my hundredth post, I want you all to delurk! If I go by my comments I only have 3 regular readers plus the odd drop in. I know I get more views then that, so leave a comment!
