New hair, new chapter

I've gone for the chop and had my hair cut, ready in preparation for having very little time to wash it let alone dry it (it was so long and thick it was taking over 5 hours to dry naturally or half an hour to blow dry it!) it's also put a lot more shine back in to it, so hopefully I can keep it healthier from now on. I go through stages with my hair, i've had it very long and very short, luckily my hair grows rather fast so can keep up the pace. I very often find that I chop and restyle my hair in response to changes in my life; new job, new baby, new outlook, etc, isn't it strange how something as simple as our hair can form such a part of our identity and our statement to the world about how we are and how we're feeling?

Big news this week in the Thrift household is our gorgeous son turned 3!!

The good news is he enjoyed his party and birthday very much, probably the 1st one he has really been old enough to understand and get excited about! The bad news- we have a house full of huge plastic toys that are taking over, and requiring a massive shop for batteries, aaaghhh!
Feeling a little low today, I am realising being nearly 7 months pregnant and getting a stinking cold is not a good combination, but then again I should count my blessings, compared to last year my health has been fantastic and this is the 1st cold for months, so I'll just take it easy today, eat jacket potato with cheese & beans (my newest craving!) and keep putting the roof back on the lego police car GS has been given for the hundredth time today!

We are off on Friday for a few nights in York; I love this city and haven't been before with hubby and GS so looking forward to exploring the old sights with them and showing GS the railway museum especially! The hotel we are staying at is actually converted railway carriages by the side of the main line, so should be very exciting for GS (and Hubby!!)


  1. Oooh! I love the new cut! It is so cute :D I'm like that with my hair....I change the style, cut or color depending on my mood or major events in my life. Right now it is very long (hot and heavy as well), but I'm growing it out for "Locks of Love". It will soon be long enough to chop off and send on! Mine also grows very fast, so that's a good thing :D

    I can't believe the little man is already 3!!!! Where does the time go?!?! Surely it was only yesterday he was born? Really, I'm getting old, lol! Also, I can't believe you're already 7 months along! Seems like you just found out.

    York is a lovely city and I hope you all have a fantastic time! Just makes me sad we're not there so we could meet up. R and I love York :D Have a great trip, lovey!

  2. I really love the hair, sometimes a change is a good thing. I love York it is my most fav city in the whole wide world!

    Plastic toys ar ethe bain of my life!

  3. Your hair looks great - definately easier to manage with a toddler & a new baby.

    Little man looks like he had a great ToyStory birthday - just a pain about the batteries.

  4. Your hair looks lovely
    Iam the same - long hair, short hair, but like you it grows quickly so it doesn't matter too much at all.

  5. Hope you all have a great time away in York.
    Belated happy birthday wishes to your little boy.
    And your new hair cut is fab! I agree that having a good hair-do does make you feel so much better, equally a bad one gets you down!

  6. This made me smile because I did exactly the same with my hair - it was waist length and thick like yours and when I couldn't bend over my bump to wash it any more I had it cut short! Your lovely boy looks like he's concentrating hard on opening his presents - just the same expression as my eldest at the same age! xx

  7. Your hair looks lovely, have a great time in York x
