Holidays

Everyone is now in holiday mode, the children break from school tomorrow, six weeks of rest relaxation fun….. Me ,well our family has a big wedding abroad my only daughter is getting married on the island 🌴 of Cyprus. I still can’t believe my little girl is not only getting married but is so grown up .Because of the wedding I’m finding myself remembering how she was as a little girl is that normal. Time has flown ,I have two sons her brothers and I just think back to how they all were as children 👶 one of her brothers is already married and in the next two weeks I will just have one child to go.When did all this happen?.

So parents make the most of your children while they are young because they don’t stay that way for long ,time moves fast. Don’t get too cross when they play you up,cherish them , love them❤️. All of my children have made me proud still can’t believe I pulled it off . I feel a very lucky lady .

So this years holidy will be extra special. All my children together, celebrating with me looking on it doesn’t get any better than that. I just want to say 😊 THANK YOU.

 

Positivity

How do you find being positive all day ! I find it hard sometimes ,I mean really hard . They say in magazines that we should all try and be positive,stay happy think good thoughts ,Yes I agree and I try every day because I don’t want to be that moany ungrateful sad spiteful jealous 😒 person and it’s so easy to be negative rather than positive,

Some days you wake up and the world 🌎 is good lovely everything slots into place people around are amazing and you feel full of love .So that makes it easy ,you feel positive no one is raining on your parade . BUT what about the other days huh when you feel annoyed just because the people around you are even breathing, the work day awful , life is pants nothing worth fighting  for .

Those days are the days you should try your hardest to think some thing positive to try and forgive the people around you to love and feel love ❤️ because on those days you need it most .Just remember every thing we do say and feel has a consequence, the energy we recreate has an impact.

So take a deep breath ,think before you speak remember kindness , compassion, love , empathy and that we all make mistakes yes even you .

Norfolk

We have all just got back from our annual holiday in Norfolk. It started some years ago when the kids were small and we would take our two much loved German shepherds to the seaside for a week .

Kruegar and Storm were their names, they were our extended fur kids .Really you have to be a dog 🐶 lover to know what I’m saying , so it became a tradition.They have now passed away but we continue with blade our daughters lovely fur kid , my grand pup .

Norfolk is so gentle the people lovely, old England .And as I was walking I wondered about lord nelson ,was he an unassuming man was he gentle,he is one of England’s heroes I don’t know much about him just what we learned at school do they even teach that any more .

Im just walking thinking about this famously heroic man who must have been a bit fearless in his time and I thought about Norfolk and its beauty how calm restful and peaceful it is and it made me proud and I smiled .lord nelson is still in Norfolk I can feel him .

Beach

Birthdays

Yes I have had five days off because it was my birthday 🎉.And yes I love cake ,as you can see it’s a beautiful cake it     Looks too good to eat the reason my daughter had hedgehogs decorated on it is because my garden is hedgehog central with a resident hedgehog at hoglets manor .

Im a bit sad because I just love ❤️ watching them in my garden . They look so cute the babies are adorable I feel honoured and as I have been feeding them for a while I’m getting more and more .The really sad thing is one of my customers said she had never seen one , a real live one and the lady in question is in her early 60 ‘ s .

The thing is I just kinda assumed everyone had seen or been near them as they are all around so I guess I’m really lucky 🍀 .

Any way I had a great time and ended up going with my husband to Weymouth for the day with his man van job I feel I packed a lot in in my five days but alas I’m back to the shop tomorrow a full few days so I will leave you with some pictures x

Spring

Spring has arrived, don’t get me wrong winter has it’s merits but I love the sun and new beginnings spring reminds me of that Persephone the goddess has arrived to bring us love and playfulness.

Today I will be taking my grand pup out for a lovely walk enjoying the sun ☀️ flowers and countryside and tomorrow at the salon 💇 making all you lovely ladies look like goddesses. X

Put your hands in the air like you just don’t care.

Ladies do you ever get days when you just want it all to hang out, to sit on the sofa in your pyjamas cuddle in your sofa snuggly binge watch all your tv programs your new best friend bad boy on the street sugar chocolate overload .

I do some days I just want to hibernate not Surface not see anyone not speak to anyone as my work colleague said become like the hedgehog just eat then go to sleep for most of the winter, nice thought!

But alas ladies spring is coming and then summer holidays being planned. Do you want to look good for you or do you do it for everyone one else. Personally I like to look my best for me some where in my genetics I just can’t let it all go I like my hair to look great and yes I’m sorry I love make up l love looking like a lady and if I could walk in them loving high heels .

So for me letting it all go is okay , just now and then I love the fact that we all become peacocks getting ready for our reveals, beach baby, cat walk queen, sultry temptress.

Be proud of yourself love yourself your all beautiful. Look your best be your best and most of all do it for yourself because as the song goes “sisters are doing it for themselves” x 👩‍❤️‍👩 Tina

 

My First Ever Blog Post

Hello well here it is my very first blog post and I have to say it’s quite daunting especially to a 54 year old who I have to say is an absolute technophobe. My children all have a great laugh about it but a little while ago I decided I wanted to do a blog. I wanted to just chat about my daily life because I’m a hairdresser and I’ve been doing this job for quite  a long time,  meeting lots of very interesting people and enjoying most of it most of the time.

My husband helped me set up the blog post because he is amazing at all of the internet stuff and he called it ramblings of a hairdresser which I think was the right choice because believe me us hairdressers can certainly talk, well except a few who don’t say a word to their customers and make them feel uncomfortable so I’m told .

So here I am ready to ramble on about how lovely my job is how great my ladies are and my few gents. When I first started my apprenticeship one of the senior stylist told me being a hairdresser is a bit like being a hooker the customer is king you smile you chat you make them look amazing even if you feel like crap you don’t show it and you work it, the show must go on so I guess in a way she was right but you know what the buzz you get out of this job is amazing you just can’t beat it.

Its getting late and I have a full day tomorrow one which involves rainbow coloured hair so I hope all you people out there have a great day and if you happen to be going to your hairdresser just remember what an amazing person they are .

xx Tina
