A bit of pampering

Thanks again for all your wonderful and supportive comments – I’m glad to hear I’m not alone out there, and a number of us deal with similar issues. Sorry to those of you that missed the posts, so you won’t know what I’m talking about, as I’ve now deleted them both … time to move on …

Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the time off over the weekend that I needed, but I did finally wangle tomorrow off after a bit of negotiating … and as it turns out the flights aren’t looking that crash-hot so Mum’s ending up going home two nights earlier than planned.  It was either that or she was going to have to stay for at least another week – and to be honest I think I needed a day to myself before flying to Sydney to unwind a bit.

Today I decided to pamper myself a bit to make myself feel a bit brighter and positive about myself – I’ve booked myself in for a haircut and colour on Monday (the original flight day for Mum), and tonight after work I went in to get an eyebrow shaping and eyelash tinting done … it was a really nice pick-me-up.  Anything that makes me feel a bit better about myself this week has got to be a good thing! 😉

Tomorrow I’m driving out to Dandenong to “Big in Black” a shop that apparently specialises in eveningwear for the larger and voluptuous figure … thanks to the generosity of Sharon, though, I have a back-up plan of a black jacket/top that I can borrow … at least I have the day off tomorrow to work on it.  Then Monday I can take the entire day off (hopefully) to pamper myself – unfortunately I still have to work all weekend, so poor Mum has to sit at the airport for a while … we’ll probably have to leave here at about 6.30am at the latest for me to get her there, drop her off, and have time to drive back again in time for a 9am start at work.  Unfortunately Mum’s flight doesn’t leave until 11.45am, so she’d better take a good book or her stitching!  At least if she doesn’t get on that flight, the evening flight has more free seats so there’s a back-up option.  Unfortunately because I can’t get off work, we can’t just go in for the evening flight, as I finish work at the time she’s supposed to be checking in.  Anyway, everything will sort itself out, I’m sure 🙂

Now I’m off to chill out for a short while – I’m not in the mood to stitch, and it’s possible I won’t touch a needle over the next week or so while I’m in Sydney, as I’m not 100% sure whether I’ll bother taking any with me … that’s something else I can decide on Monday 🙂  Right now my stitching has lost its priority … c’est la vie …

  1. So glad you are feeling better! It’s a tough, tough issue! I hear ya about the pampering too. I was just thinking as I was driving in to work today that I am going to book a haircut this weekend too – similar reason 🙂

  2. The pampering sounds like just the thing you need at the minute 🙂

    Good luck with finding something to wear!

  3. Hope the shopping was successful 🙂
    It’s good to let off steam – glad things are a bit better and you’re going to get some pampering. Wonderful 🙂

  4. Sounds like a wonderful idea to pamper yourself! And I wish you much success in finding the perfect outfit at an affordable price too 🙂

  5. I know what ya mean about every bit of pampering being needed – I’m having a period of that too!!! I too posted some moany stuff then deleted it. Sometimes we just need to feel we’re have a public say about something that narks us to get it off our chests and then we can zap it! Blogs are great for that, aren’t they?

    How’s your stitching coming on? Ever gonna finish those stumpwork UFOs???=)
