I’ve had two lovely gifts this week, the first appeared after lunch on Monday when I was working from home. A much lusted after Canon 5D Mark II!! I was very excited and couldn’t stop jumping up and down in disbelief that this lovely new camera was now mine. The past few days have seen me get to grips with the new menus and settings and experimenting with the HD video function (it’s very good!). I feel like a real pro now I have a back-up camera. ~ To my trusty 30D – I still consider you to be my second baby and won’t be selling you any time soon, I promise. ~
The second surprise was a gift voucher for a head massage and hair re-style. Not something I would think about doing for myself, but after Maia’s trendy haircut (see right) at the beautiful salon, Reference Coiffure (James’ hairdresser) I began thinking that I might suit having a fringe again and having some length taken off.
The head massage was divine and truly relaxing. It’s not often these days I get to really relax. If I’m at home, I am too close to work and can’t stop thinking about it or working on stuff. The nearest I get is actually with my knitting, but even that these days has become mostly work related! The head massage was given during a deep shampoo and condition and took place whilst laying in an electronic massage chair in a curtained off area in the corner of the beautifully light salon – a very nice touch.
I would highly recommend this salon, for both men, women and children. They were very friendly and I absolutely love my re-style. I just hope that my very low-maintenance beauty routine can keep it looking good.
