Monday, Monday ...


It was cold this weekend! We had the fire going 24/7 which the dogs are loving… nothing like curling up under the fire place.

The kids are off school this week, mid-term break.  Because Himself & I both have to work they are going ‘camping’.  Don’t worry we’re not sending them off to go sleep out in the rain in tents.  It’s called camping but they will be staying in little bungalows.  I hope it goes well. Tiger was not to keen on going but I’m that by the time they get back they’ll have loads of stories to tell.

So I was standing at the vending machine getting coffee this morning when a lady who works on my floor rubs the top of my head and says to me:

wow your hair is really growing fast, can’t believe it was still so short last week
yeah it does’ I reply

my son just shaved all his hair, I’m not happy about it but what can you do. At least it looks okay on men.  But when women do it, no I just don’t understand it.’ ‘There are people with cancer who have no choice about it, so I don’t think its good for women to shave their hair off’.

Okay, I know that people who have cancer would give anything to not have to shave their heads. I didn’t shave my hair off to mock people with cancer. My gran had cancer and lost all of her hair at the age of 38 – it never grew back! But implying that I’m making fun of people with cancer just cause I have a shaved head is not cool either.

Right, not that I have that off my chest I’ll shut-up and get back to work … only 3 day work week, so happy about it!

O and if hurricane Sandy is heading your way, good luck, hope you don’t suffer any damages!

  2. That's probably why she's not happy about her son's hair and he did it anyways... her opinion just does NOT count :)

    Glad to know camping can be in or outdoors!! I would hate to be outside in a tent in this rain :/

    Happy Monday friend!

  4. She seriously walked up to you and rubbed your head?! Oh my gosh that lady had quite a bit of nerve. That would have totally ticked me off!

  5. That's when you say an enormous "Wot! Eva!" and prance off. Seriously.

  6. I can't believe she touched you. Clearly she has personal space issues. I'm not sure what I would have said but seriously she is the one with the problem.

  7. I can't believe she actually touched your head...creepy! And for her to say such comments to you is just so unbelievably rude! :(

    p.s. - I'm sure your kids will have a blast and will return more excited than ever to go back again!
