I have to admit that I actually wrote this post on Friday evening. I am working both Saturday and Sunday and after a looooong shift, I don’t always feel like writing too much.
After feeling pretty grotty for the past week and spending most of the time in my PJs, I felt that I needed a bit of cheering up. I find that when my hair looks good I feel good. However, my hair looked bloody awful! My face has got even fatter and I didn’t feel my hairstyle was very flattering at all, especially as I have to wear it up for work. I look the same shape as a snowman with the ball-shaped head and big round body with a couple of stick-like arms (and legs). It was time for a change.
After ploughing through Pinterest to get some ideas (flattering hair for fat faces) I saw several but they were too high maintenance by the look of them. I need, easy and simple styles for the fat face! Anyway, this morning I phoned the local hairdresser on the off-chance to see if they had any appointments free and they did at 1 pm.
The stylist was helpful and friendly and gave me some ideas as to what she thought would suit me. I took her advice, had quite a lot cut off, and a fringe put in and I loved it. It is not often I feel confident about my appearance but my new hairstyle made me feel fantastic.
Oh, and later on in the day, I had the results of another assignment. I was worried I would fail it after the disaster of the first essay but I passed. Definitely a fantastic day!
You’re looking/doing fantastic sis!
Thanks, dear Sis. If only I could just get that weight off……xx
You’ll get there!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
