Discovering the inner Me

It's been a bit of an up and down week! I had a fantastic time at the Wedding Show with my mum and sister on Saturday at the NEC...when I go to my flat in Manc my Ebay/Twitter Wedding dress had arrived!
I had a bit of a Monica from Friends moment and hung around the flat wearing it! Thank goodness it fits!!
Once again a MASSIVE thank you to all the people on Twitter who came together so that I could buy this dress! Ok so my wedding isn't until September next year..but that gives me plenty of time to find the perfect shoes, bridesmaid dresses and Oh - Grow my hair..which brings me to my next point!
SO.. after finally being at ease with my short hair.. what do I go and do? I hacked off the front and side on Sunday evening and dyed it red. WELL the red didn't stick and the DIY haircut was a disaster.. Jim very kindly said that it was OK but bless him.. I knew I had failed myself..
I was due to have my latest tattoo addition on Monday afternoon, but Studio 81 called and said that my tattooist had done his back in at the Convention (which took place in Manc all weekend). So with the afternoon off...I set an appointment at Toni and Guy and they sorted me out a treat! I am well happy, and they have cut it  so that the time after next it'll be at a length where it will be nearly level and I can have both sides the same length.. this is what I am aiming for anyway as I want my hair to look good for my BFF Victoria's wedding in June but for it to be a great length for my own wedding next year!

Tuesday I went to London for a total of 20 minutes only to have to come back to Manchester again and guess what? I am doing it all again tomorrow..but I might be there for a whole hour! Oh the life of a garment tech!! OH! I am going to be made senior tech in a few excited! I just hope Manchester is as kind to my Jim as it has been to me and he gets a job soon..times like these that we wonder why we moved in the first place...

AnYway folks... thought I'd leave you with my fave outfit this week so far!
