I had a pig of a day on Wednesday.......

We are going to a wedding on Saturday, and I have been meaning to dye my hair for a couple of weeks now, and finally got around to it on Wednesday morning. I bought the Nice 'N Easy Natural Medium Brown and due to the fact I have the odd grey hair, who am I kidding I have a ton of grey hair, I leave it on for the 45 minutes.

Now I am not one for swearing, but I get out of the shower and look in the mirror and say Holy S**t, what have I done. I look like a Goth :00 My hair is so dark and with my pale skin it looks even darker. So I am not a happy camper. I emailed one of my knitting group buddies and told her I wasn't coming to knitting class, as that is the first thing they will say what did you do to your hair. Told Eva the mail lady I wasn't setting foot out of the house, she told me not to be so daft. I mean I look like a Goth......which is all well and good if that's what you want to look like, but I DON'T!!! So goodness knows what I am going to do........

We have had rain for a few days now, so everything is wet. I put my wellies on to take out the ashes from the fireplace to the fire pit and walk on the wet deck; I slip on the wet wood and fall on my backside. My rear end is fine, as there is plenty of padding there!! However I twist my knee on the way down and I am in agony, I am hobbling around and it is so sore. So goodness knows what damage I have done there, as my knees were sore before hand.

Caught another three mice overnight, so I think that's 12 since Saturday, oh joy!!! Still haven't found the elusive trap that disappeared. Dh put wire wool in the hole, but there is more work to be done there. Don't think I will be doing much as I am in so much pain with this rotten knee. The fly population is down though, only got the odd one or two remaining!!

Then the icing on the cake was I caught two more mice on Wednesday afternoon, and one was still alive, with it's back leg hanging off. I should have hit it over the head to put it out of its misery, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I was actually in tears over that one.

Put the heating on, but it will only come on when it goes down to 14 oC in the house. We have the fire on, on a night so it's keeping the chill off the house. However it is cool upstairs.

So another GREAT day here on the Acreage!!

Hey, as long as your nails and lipstick aren't black, you're okay. Besides, everybody will be looking at the bride. All the best!

Have you installed those things you plug in the wall that make a sound the mice do not like? I will look up the brand we use and let you know but since we started using them we have had no more mice.

I hope your knee heals quickly and I am guessing your hair looks fine but that you have just shocked yourself lol.

Awe I'm so sorry it wasn't a good day. However you did get more mice and maybe with a Goth look they might not stay around. JK

Hope your day is much better today. Hugs!!

I'm so sorry you're having such a horrible day...I can suggest a solution for your hair though. Call you salon, tell them what happened and they can bleach your hair and re-color it. It may cost a pretty penny, but it's better than waiting for it to grow out or fade. I don't know how close you are to the Mississauga area, but there's an area there called Streetsville and if you're looking for a great salon there Called Salon Bardot, my cousin is a hair dresser there and her name is Krystine. She's probably booked solid tomorrow and Saturday, but there are other good hairdressers there too. If Krystine is free at all and you decide to have your hair redyed, go with her, she has never, ever ruined my hair, she's actually one of the only people I trust with it.
