Hair today, hair tomorrow...

OK, so today, the sun was shining, the weather was sweet, girls were wearing maxi dresses and guys were walking around in Havianas! The breeze was blowing and the blossom (or 'flower snow' as Little Miss O calls it) was dancing (literally) across my path. I was in complete awe of today and walking in the sun (to get my nails done, but that's a different issue), I had time to think about my impending hair appointment...sigh...

I've booked my hair appointment, to have extension twists put in - but why? Because I am 'bored'... because my hair is not that versatile at the moment? Why have I already spent 30 minutes scouring images on google; spent 10 minutes moaning (and I hate moaners) about having to get my hair done? Why am I planning to spend at least 20 minutes selecting the perfect brand/colour/length/texture of packeted/boxed hair, 40 minutes driving to and from my hairdresser's house and then a further 4+ hours getting a numb bum in her chair! Why? Because I am 'bored'? It seems like a lot to go through to avoid boredom? Isn't it?

Surely, in that time (nearly 6 hours) we could drive to Blackpool, enjoy the sun, sea and sand, have a picnic, eat ice-cream and then come back again - or I could 'get my hair did'...

To top it all off, I will have to spend a good few hours taking it out later on - this would either be whenever I get 'bored' (the irony is tear-inducing) again, or when the (fake) hair starts to look messy..

This of course is all before I consider the cost of doing all of this - it's true, time IS money!

So, I have 36 hours to decide whether to relieve my supposed 'boredom' by
a) being creative, and, for want of a better expression, sucking it up and continuing on my natural hair journey 
b) conceding that I have exhausted my creativity with my current hair length and accept that having extensions will allow me to experiment in other ways. 

I know which way I am swaying!
