Got some pics of the decking that my lovely hubby (who is a carpenter) made with lots of `help` from the children. It was nice for them getting to work with their dad on a biggish project like this...
This side area has been unusable up till now... when we moved in it was actually blocked off. Its too big an area to waste though, and the view from the end is lovely out across the countryside (PLUS its a very secluded little suntrap). So we have raised the deck about 3 feet from floor level and now its a lovely big balcony. Planning to put french doors from the living room out onto the balcony :o) Just needs populating with nice pot plants now!
While they were at it, they`ve changed the balustrade & wood around the bottom of the decking, and cleaned & treated the whole lot ;o)
Just need to put a roof on the 2 tall uprights now - its a nice sheltered sitting area
And thats pretty much it... apart from my minor hair disaster today! I took my 11 year old daughter to my hairdresser - we were both having a trim & layers. Rachael went first & had a lovely haircut. Unfortunately we spent so much time chatting the hairdresser gave me the same hairdo! So now my long lightly layered hair that hung in a very heavy curtain (all one length apart from the light layering) is now about 4" shorter at the front...to around shoulder length - a `do` that I really do not like! Its fine on many people - but not on me. I`ve been contemplating chopping the whole lot off to collar length for a few weeks... the only thing stopping me is the prospect that if I decide to grow it again I have to go through this awkward length that always takes forever to get past. And now its like it AAAGH. SO do I chop it all off? Or just the 4" at the back so its basically a long bob? Or put it in a ponytail & ignore it for a few months?
Im certainly not upset about it...its only hair - and it will grow. Im just annoyed with myself for being such a chatterbox that I didnt make sure I got what I wanted! Rachaels immediate reaction as we walked out was "my hair is better than yours" with a big smile :o) little darlin`.
Anyway, Im off to crowbar said little darlin`out of the bath - where she has been marinating for about an hour & a half now :o) The lady in Lush gave her a couple of bathbombs as a freebee last night (I had just brought quite a bit mind you) she is testing the first one out.
