As per request- the New Do

After my post yesterday I had a comment left by my mate OziMum asking for pics of the new hairdo, so here 'tis. For those who don't know me personally, I have always been blonde and never coloured my hair until my mid-20's, when the blonde began to turn darker. Since then I have pretty much maintained the light locks, but prior to travelling to China to pick up our sweet Alice, I decided to get drastic and go brunette. The reasons?
a) because I was already going to stick out like a sore thumb in Jiangxi because of my pale skin and big nose;
b) because I remember reading somewhere that blonde hair is seen as the sign of a witch, and I didn't want to completely freak out my new daughter by looking INCREDIBLY foreign.

So out went the blonde and in came the brunette, and I didn't mind it too much, but after almost three months with no hair care, I was well and truly overdue for a cut and colour. When my hairdresser suggested blonde again, I said 'Why not??' So here I am, looking dressed and ready for the kid's school picnic today. Now all I need is my grumpy and overtired baby to wake up so we can go to the beach!!

Oh & btw - keep an eye out in the mail mid-week *crossing fingers* ;)

And on the previous post - isn't that the grandma's job? (They take sweet revenge or somesuch according to my sources *lmao*)

Oh my goodness... I didn't know about the witch thing. I have heard that blonde can really freak the babies out, but who knows whether they would have freaked out at dark hair?!!

Looking very swish indeed! You look so different with blonde hair!

Hope Grumpy Overtired Baby woke up in time for the beach! (which of course, Murphys Law states, she would've slept an hour longer that day, because you're sposed to go out - as opposed to staying home all day, in which case she would've slept for 15 mins!!!)
