That's right, tomorrow I am getting my hair done and I am going for a completely new look. I am going dark! I have been brunette before but I went back to my trusty blonde and now I'm switching back. And my hairdresser is going to kill me if I turn up at her salon again in several months time demanding to go back to blonde again! In fact, I think my hair would fall out if I did that, it is in seriously bad condition! So I'm taking the plunge . . . EEK!
Following that I am taking the HG out to dinner for his birthday. He turned 28 on Tuesday and I thought it would be nice to get my hair done, get dressed up and actually go OUT for once. We don't go out much. It's really quite sad! We just can't afford it and it sucks but we've spent our money on things like putting in a driveway and other house renovations which doesn't leave alot of cash for going out every weekend. Or new clothes. Or 6 weekly hair appointments (hence the change to brunette!). I can't wait to not be able to afford to go out due to spending money on fun stuff - like cots, baby clothes and everything inbetween! I'm going to have a field day when that time comes (and the HG is going to hate it!)
We don't shop together nicely. Do many couples shop together nicely? Probably not. To give you an example, when we brought our house there were no curtains so we had to go shopping for curtains for every room in the house. And in amongst the curtains in the local Spotlight store we very nearly got divorced. It was so bad we ended up getting back in the car with no curtains, driving to his parents place and bringing his mum back to the store with us as a mediator. I am not kidding! I had woman walking past me shaking there heads in sympathy. So I wonder how this scenario is going to play out in the baby shops? Hopefully we get to find out very soon. Minus the divorce.
