A Busy Long Weekend

I had quite a busy long weekend here. I love Bank Holiday Monday - cos no-one that doesn't work for a bank gets it! I got some good books read (I'll post on that later).

I did so much cleaning! One of the Managers at work was telling how FlyLady has revolutionised her life. With a commendation like that I had to give it a go. I am up to day 7 of a polished sink! I still can't believe I am using windex on my sink! LOL

I had an Irish Dancing Competition on Sunday. I got a gold and a silver for two of my dances. Ironically, I completely stuffed up my premiership dance and I had already danced it once and won a silver. I got to the middle of it and couldn't remember the next step. So embarassing:)

On Monday I tore around everywhere. I got my hair done. I was there 3 and a half hours! It is very blonde. The hair dresser is a bit of a flibity gibbet and walked off in the middle of the streaking process. It was a bit of a shock when I came out, but I am getting used to it and have got quite a number of compliments on it which has been reassuring. I wasn't sure if it was too blonde - I am naturally a dark honey colour kind of blonde, this is verging towards a very pale blonde.

I also went to the Sheridan outlet and got some fresh white sheets for the spare bedroom. Can't wait to put them on the bed. I think they will make it look really special. I am going to try and sew new doona covers for them too. Hopefully I will get them all done before DH gets back from Iraq.

I also had a private ballet lesson and bible study. So, all in all I think that my day off was more pressured than my normal work day!


  1. I am going to give FlyLady a try. I definitely need help with house cleaning.

    Enjoy your week!

  2. Sounds like a busy holiday weekend. Congratulations on the gold and silver at the competition!

  3. Congrats on you wins! I al loving your new header too!

  4. How cool that you are an Irish Dancer! My daughter and I love watching that, and she has her own version that she does around the house.
