Happy Holidays!

yes, I can say Happy Holidays.. no seasonal conotations at all and it is OUR summer holidays down here, so I think it is the perfect greeting for me to say...
today I run round like a mad woman, not the wise woman that I strive to be... I run to buy Brandy Butter, more cream. Vegetables and fruit. Yoghurt to go with the fruit compote that I serve at breakfast on Christmas day. I go to the butchers to collect my ham, I finish wrapping presents and i order one dozen sausages just in case the 9kg ham is not enough. Just in case.....

a little corner of my world brings peace back into my soul every time i walk in the back door.....
yesterday I had my hair coloured... my youngest daughter Sophie is now a hairdresser and has just passed a hair colouring exam receiving top marks.. so I asked her to colour my hair... it is still dark but now I have purple foils... love it.. kind of goes with the tattoo... no photos yet....

Your day sounds like mine - running hither and thither madly buying and buying some more. I also had my hair coloured last week. Wish I had some purple highlights. One day....

You must take a pic of yourself with your "new hair" so we can see.

Congrats on the blog awards. Will check them out.
Follow rules? Well, maybe some of the time - but certainly not always!
Happy Holidays to you too.

Ooh purple highlights in summer hair - how pretty.

Love your altar and tree. I have to take a picture of mine too. I got a tiny 2 foot live pine tree that I pray I can keep from killing and plant in a bare spot out back come spring...

I am so glad to have "met" you this year sweet Robyn - here's to 2009 and growth and joy and light and .... everything good.

Have a wonderful family holiday!

I too ran around like a crazy woman on Christmas Eve - after I had promised myself I would not go to the marketplace after last Friday. Best laid plans....

Hope you Had a Merry Yule/Solstice/Midsummer celebration!
