SO I'M BACK AT HOME AND IT'S AWFULLY QUIET. A BIT TOO QUIET WITH REVISION AND GARDENING BEING THE HOUSEHOLD PRIORITIES. WHAT'S MORE, WI-FI CONNECTION IS TERRIBLE, MAKING SPOTIFY TEMPERAMENTAL AND I CAN'T EVEN CATCH UP WITH NEIGHBOURS.
BUT, YOU COULD ARGUE THAT THE AIR IS FRESH AND I CAN SEE GREENERY FROM MY WINDOW.
(apparently there are benefits to countrylife.)
ALSO, MY ROOM IS FINALLY LARGER THAN THE SHOEBOX I'VE BEEN COPING WITH UNTIL NOW.
BY THE WAY, I DIDN'T WIN MY COMPETITION. SO I WON'T BE GOING TO NEW YORK. RUBBISH, BUT I THANK YOU KINDLY FOR YOUR MANY VOTES- I DID ROLL IN AT SECOND PLACE. unfortunately there is no second place prize- 3 holidays this summer though be greedy though wouldn't it.
MY PERSONAL CONSOLATION PRIZE TO MYSELF, A FRESH NEW HAIRCUT.
I KNEW I WANTED TO SHORTER, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW I'D GO THIS SHORT. ASSURING MY HAIRDRESSER THAT YES, I DID TRUST HER- I WATCHED AS MY HAIR FELL AND GATHERED AROUND MY ANKLES. SCARED...
BUT, FORTUNATELY I LOVE IT. LOVE IT. so short and neat, with the back even being described as 'bristly'. what a novelty eh? long heavy fringe- obviously essential, satisfying my compulsive hair-flick. not to mention ensuring my straighteners don't get too dusty and hair bobbles don't go to waste.
i love it.
until tomorrow when my own styling skills will undoubtedly fail me.
