I had a good day! .... and I feel 'worth it'!!!

I wanted to share some positive news! I went to London on the train yesterday with a friend to get my hair 'sorted'. I was a little worried that I would struggle with the walking and feeling tired, and not be able to manage my IBS whilst out and about - but you know what - I DID!

It was a long process at the hair dressers 4 and a half hours of being attended to, and the end result - I said 'Cheryl Cole has got nothing on me!' (re the L'Oreal hair advert) I felt gorgeous with a new hair colour and lowlights and good cut and fab blowdry. It is amazing how important it is to pamper yourself and feel like you look great - my pain was the best it has been for the past 10 days and I even managed a good walk with the dog when I got home. Thank You for hairdressers everywhere - they make a real difference.

I usually do it myself too - so it was a real luxury - one of those voucher bargains! I think the absence of grey for a while does make you feel better :-)
