Collect the moments, one by one.

[Mushaboom - Feist]

Old dirt road
Knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow old

I got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house
And we'll collect the moments one by one
I guess that's how the future's done

So I'm now a brunette.

Or 'auburn' as some people like to call it.

It wasn't a last minute decision. In fact I think I've been playing with the idea for months now! My hairdresser has gone on her travels and so I was left to fend for myself while my roots gradually took over my head.

I opted for Sassoon Salon in Leeds. I was in there for the majority of five hours going from one extreme to another. First I had it chopped, and, yes, I do feel a little bit bald but I knew a lot of dead ends had to come off. Then I had a primer put on (which made my hair turn a lovely shade of yellow) followed by three different shades of brown. And above is the end result! I wanted something natural with lighter ends/highlights - & I guess that's what I got!

I won't lie. The change is pretty drastic, and maybe I should have really thought about how long its going to feel like I'm wearing a wig for. But, it's done now. And that's that.

I keep toying with the idea of going lighter again on my next visit, but I want to see how this pans out first :) what do you reckon?

It snowed this week! (in case anybody didn't catch that) which was nice :) I love snow. Although, mainly when I'm curled up inside with a cup of tea. I did step outside in it for a while - realising very quickly that my boots have zero grip & I seriously need to invest in some wellies!

Other things? Work, work work. I'm still in the process of applying for my PGCE which is all quite exciting. Hopefully I'll get that sent in ASAP!

Running is pretty much at a standstill right now. I always opt for Twitter as my inspiration, but when I saw even some of the most fabulous runners turning to warmth rather than falling over - I figured I would follow their lead. But, I reckon, by next week, I'll have it all back under control. Fingers crossed! Because it does seem like I've lost my mojo to be honest, "Am I setting myself up for failure?" seems to be the question on rotate in my mind. Am I meant to run? Am I just being lazy? I honestly can't decide. I guess I'll just plod along for now, and see how things turn out. I'm sure some form of enthusiasm will find me again :)

How are you all?
