Yesterday I had arranged to meet one of my very good friends for our weekly catch up. We went into town together and she bought me a coffee. While we were sitting there, she suddenly burst out, "I have organised a surprise for you, so we have to leave as soon as we are done here!" I didn't really know what to say or think, she wouldn't give me any more information, except that it was a thank you for always being there for her when she needed someone for anything, and that she hoped I wouldn't be offended.
Which started to get me worried, haha!
Well she drove me home, but instead of stopping, she drove right by my house, to the hair salon at the end of the road. She had had her hair cut last week, and I told her at the time that I was envious, that I needed my hair done, but that I couldn't afford to get it done, but was looking forward to getting it done in februray for my birthday treat.
So she had booked and paid for me to get my hair cut!!!
I was totally overwhelmed. I feel so lucky to have amazing friends in my life, that appreciate me, and that value me, despite all this craziness that I come with.
Anyway, I now have fab friends AND fab hair!! lucky me!
As a thank you, I spent today baking shortbread to give her.
