WEEK TWENTY THREE, TWENTY FOUR, TWENTY FIVE & TWENTY SIX...KNOWN AS MONTH SIX...





Of this crazy covid life...

Well it has been a crazy busy few weeks with lots going on work wise and with home life. It’s gone from having nothing to do, to being so busy with no spare time to do the blog for a quite a few weeks! So, here goes... Are you ready😂


Week 23...

The good news is we were given the green light to get back open at the Leisure Centre 😃Yippee

The week was completely crazy, packing up the temporary salon and getting set back up in the Leisure Centre, all while still working. We only had one day to get everything in but we did it, phew!!  I couldn’t believe how much I had to pack and unpack (Mostly PPE). I was absolutely shattered at the end but loving being back. It was so lovely to see all the Leisure Centre staff and have a catch up with them all.


Week 24...

As usual you have made the first week back lots of fun. Full of chatter, laughter and snoring from some of you . 😴 It’s has made me giggle when you wake yourself up with a snore and then apologise. No need to apologise as this is the best compliment you can give me, to be so relaxed you fall asleep. 😁 Job satisfaction at its best.


My home is now looking less cluttered , all the boxes (PPE and salon stuff) have gone from the landing. I didn’t realise how spacious our hall was until it all went. No crab walking down the hall, space to dance there now.


Week25...

My eldest has gone back to Uni and taken all his gear. The house is looking a lot more empty and feeling quiet😞. It has been a very emotional weekend. 😢😢 I thought I would be ok as it’s his second year but as soon as he drove off I started crying .😢 Be even worse next week when my youngest is also off to uni. Not sure I am ready for this stage. I am so pleased for them both but keep getting butterflies at the thought of it. 😟What will I do without my boys. 😞🤔 That  empty nest feeling is hitting me hard. I am going to have a find a new hobby. Thank god I am back at work and you gorgeous people need me.


Week 26...

My youngest has gone to Uni 😢😢😢. Just as I was getting over last week I now have that feeling of emptiness that I have never felt before...

I have had my boys in my life, cared for them, fed them, looked after them, laughed with them, cried with them and sometimes shouted at them 😏 everyday for 21 years and now there gone... The house feels so empty but it’s amazing how tidy it’s staying.🤣 Plus the washing basket is still only half full,😆 the kitchen tops have no crumbs or dirty plates and cups on them. 🤪 I have only put the dishwasher on once this week, 😄the toilet has no stains 😅😆, no toothpaste splatters left all over the sink and mirror and we still have beer & milk left in the fridge😆😂 But, even with all these positives I still miss them so much. I suppose it will get easier with time and I am so proud of them both.


So, this week also brings the news from Boris, the corona virus is increasing and that only six people can meet up indoors and out 😞☹️


Not the news any of us want to hear and it has definitely effected people’s moods. I have noticed a big difference with a lot of you feeling low in your moods. I don’t have the answers but can help with a relaxing treatment and a listening ear.


We offer lots of treatments for relaxation, skin care and well being. If you’re unsure what treatment would benefit you please book in for consultation or just text me and I will call you back and talk you through your needs and concerns. I always happy to help. I have nearly 30 years of skin, beauty and health knowledge. Please don’t feel overwhelmed or alone I am here to help.


So that’s about it for now, please stay safe, stay well, look after yourself and give yourself an treat ...
