Sheer luxury.

Haircut: $25
Shoulder massage: $15
Coffee: $2.70
Sanity: priceless

Every Wednesday Missy Moo and her cousin go to Grandad and Granny's house for the day. I like to do the housework, sew or catch up on sleep but I decided on the spur of the moment this morning to venture to Box Hill to my favourite cheap but nice hair salon. It's been four months since my last haircut which is a new record for me - I usually only get my hair cut about twice a year. Generally, I have long natural hair which doesn't require coloring or styling and I just can't justify spending the money on something as ridiculous as that - $50 for a haircut - get out of town! Anyhoo, enjoyed the haircut and on the way back to the train station I walked past one of those Chinese acupressure torture massage places and stopped for a shoulder massage. Wonderfully painful yet somehow relaxing at the same time.
Thanks to Granny I am now ready to face another week with Missy Moo.
I think I'm bruised though.....
