We're a bit ridiculous with the bathroom door too, generally it gets left open, the other day we had my OH peeing, me doing my hair and the cat drinking water from the tap, does get closed for a number two though ;)

Well I've been to work today, feeling almost back to 'normal', just still feeling tired. Dinner soon though, and relaxing time.

Lisa, I know of a few ladies who stopped wearing dreads due to not being able to get them in to their helmet at Derby Practise.


Today, Richard has rang the bathroom place & complained. Someone came down to see how the install was going & he complained to them too. A short story for you all: The guys that turned up on Monday were expecting to rip the bathroom out as they hadn't been told it had been done on Sunday, so they turned up without any equipment to start the bathroom, so they had to go to B&Q to buy gypsum & whatnot. The bathroom arrived later that day & they sent us the wrong sink, then today when they started to fit it, there are no drainage parts for the shower with the order & they ran out of ceiling cladding.

Needless to say Richard was rather displeased to the point of telling who he spoke to he wasn't going to pay them. The guy who came down, luckily understood why Richard was unhappy & said he'd look in to it. I want a mother fucking discount for this!!!! Nothing is ever bloody simple. >_____<

Hope it gets sorted Sarah. And Lisa, I have had many customers who had to source extra-large helmets for Derby/ bikes/ horse riding.

Even though I am well into my 4th decade of being a girl, I have just had a horrendous grooming incident which proves, once and for all, that I am shit at it.

Some would call it hair removal but I don't do it often so it becomes something more akin to what Lisa does for a living. It is very personal so I will spare you the details. But suffice it to say that, for a few awful minutes, I thought I would have to cancel my coil-fitting appointment in the morning.

Gracey, that reminds me of a rather amusing hair removal incident involving my husband, a pot of wax and a confident assertion that 'it can't hurt that much!'.

Needless to say, he whimpered like a girl with the first pull of the wax strip, and refused to let me pull any more of it off. I *accidentally* failed to mention that the wax is oil-solvable and proceeded to watch him desperately wash his nether regions in a hot bath trying to melt the wax off. Until about 20 minutes later when, picking myself up off the floor from a laughing fit, I handed him some oil and told him to soak it off with that.

He has never once doubted my pain threshold during any hair removal process since.

Mindi, take your story and add in an unfortunate accident with some toilet paper and you pretty much have my disaster. I have spent a good twenty minutes with a bottle of Napolena olive oil, prising loo-roll from my under-carriage.

Oh dear! Toilet paper + wax = large sticky papery mess! Not a good look anywhere on the body!

This pretty much sums up why I am now in the process of having all of my usually removed body hair lasered off. I cannot wait to be permanently free of the usual hair removal trauma!

Well my new campaign training is going well, we're part of the low carbon london programme, calling existing customers in london to tell them about the new meters etc... Its ongoing for at least 3 months but if we're successful in meeting our target then it could go on for longer. Fingers crossed!

In other news i'm finding it very hard to keep my comments to myself about a cousin of mine when all i really want to do is tell her to stop being a daft twat! She's treat her mam like shite this weekend and is currently on FB telling everyone how she also sent her child to school knowing full well that she was ill and that she wasn't well enough.

Coil appointment did not go well. I went into spasm and, after several attempts, it was abandoned. it was genuinely horrific and has left me somewhat jangling. And now I have to go to work. Marvellous.

Morning all!

Well the Walking Dead finale was the best episode of the whole season...it actually had ZOMBIES in it FFS

But now, having finished watching Breaking Bad, I have a decent drama shaped hole in my evenings...

Any suggestions? I like grit, sci-fi or horror type things :)

I agree about Walking dead. I wished I'd skipped the whole season apart from the last episode lol.

I currently have several progs all on the go, but I can happily recommend; Grimm, Alcatraz, Fringe, Misfits (only just go around to watching this, I have no idea how it escaped me, I love it), Game of Thrones is back on 2nd April too woo!
I do watch an aweful amount of tv, its quite shameful :oops:

In other news, I have been in the worst mood since the weekend which I haven't been able to shake and now it seems there is light at the end of the tunnel. Just keep getitng really down lately. I think some retail therapy would help!

I'm watching all of those too, except the misfits. I can't wait for fringe to come back and the final season of breaking bad should be amazing!

I had my eye test at hospital. I need a field vision test, I'll get an appointment in the post. I got my new tax credit letter in the post along with a revised housing benefit letter.

My head hurts, I'm sure I got a head ache from having massive pupils allowing every beam of light in to my eyes.

Now, I'm going to get korben and go to Tesco.

Have you tried American Horror Story, Liz? We just finished with The Walking Dead too. We're starting with Six Feet Under now, years behind everyone else.

Gracey, your hair removal comments had me guffawing out loud.

Right, I've got home from work, been for a run and now dinner time!

Jordan had to use those drops that swell the pupil several times a day for 6 months in an attempt to treat her overactive muscle. It didn't work and she had to carry a doctors note in case her tutors thought she was on drugs when they looked at her eyes. She has the field tests every 3 months and also had an electro magnetic light test that I took photos of, because she looked funny and I am a twat.

Today, the strangest thing that anyone has said to me is 'I'm sorry, it looks like I've grazed your cervix.' It bloody feels like it too. She is the Bitch Of The Day.

I actually cringed! Ouchies Grace!

Hey ladies, been a few days, been a bit gutted about a few things, had to turn some stuff down and got royally messed with. Never mind, the house is empty tonight and I'm going to climb into bed and forget it's happened.

Hair removal, I find I have really sensitive skin, ideas? :( I've always wanted to try wax, but find it might make matters worse?

Yeah, I was in quite a lot of pain yesterday. The graze was from the clamp she used. I feel a lot better today, except for muscle ache in my stomach, inner thigh and strangely, arms. I was very tense, there's no doubt.

Long job today, more extenders. I hope our weather stays like this, its gorgeous.

Hnnnnn.

In other news, BeeUnique are still out of stock on nearly all SFX dyes. Fffffff. I really wish SFX weren't as sodding useless as they appear to be, as I recall stock problems have always been down to their being shoddy suppliers and being poor at comms/sending shipments late, though if someone wants to correct me from BU here please do.

Goddamnit I need to do my roots.

That reminds me, I need to order more Napalm. I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to stay this colour though, I'm fancying a change of shade and a length tweak.

I'm sending off for my provisional license this weekend, almost 20 years since I did it last. Am I not the queen of procrastination?

Good morning :D

Im going to get myself a nice summer jacket today. Ive never had one because i used to just wear hoodies to cover my large kite :lol: but ive decided that now is the time to show my body off a wee bit and you cant do that in a huge winter coat.
Anyone know where there are any good, thin jackets on the highstreets?

Cant you use a lower quality dye just to tide you over until the good stuff is back in stock madii? I hate it when i cant do my roots so it must be driving you crackers!

Watched the first 3 episodes of Grimm last night...looks like it's definitely our sort of thing so thanks for the recommendation.

I have the first episode of American Horror Story to watch but keep forgetting about it.

It's a glorious day today...I feel knackered though. Thanks to the early light Scarlet has been constantly waking at 5.30am...luckily Dan has cobbled together a blackout blind and it's now nearly pitch black in there so hopefully that should help. I just put her down for a nap and it took her less than 5 minutes to get to sleep :)

I really Liked American Horror Story, my OH wasn't convinced though for some reason.

Afternoon all, another nice day today, always puts me in a good mood. I have ordered the new furniture I was oggling last night (good job I didn't get it last night too, as it all wen't in a sale today, bonus!).

I'm going to sort some stuff out in my wardrobe tonight for sale, so may pop something on the forum in the next week or so of stuff up for grabs.
