Ooops, I’ve gone and not blogged again… what with working afternoons and evenings I find it’s so hard to make myself sit down and blog. I also need to take time and read all blog posts I’ve been putting off reading (I’m not going to read all of them, just select the ones that catch my fancy).

Today I’m going to try to do something about my hair, it’s gotten way too long and I’m considering adding some colour to it as well. Though I’m not sure they’ll have time for a cut and colour, I’m just going to pop by the salon and see if they can squeeze me in after lunch. I’ve used clips to get my bangs to not be in my eyes, and even though I ROCK that look I want to have the option of having them down too.

I recently bought makeup brushes (and some more makeup, gotta get new colours to try them out ya know!) and I’ve been playing around with them a couple of times. It’s a new experience to use all these different brushes when putting gunk on, but it does look a lot better and I’m sure once I get the hang of it, it’ll be awesome! Makeup’s always been fun, now it’s even more so.

Last weekend I was at camp with eleven 14 year old’s (in Sweden you go through confirmation at 14, same as Catholic children do at age 7 (?), it’s optional but most do it, at least if your a member of the Church of Sweden). So anyway, we stayed at a place called Skaga from Friday evening to Sunday lunch. They have this tiny Stave Church (go clickety for a explanation), which had to be rebuilt after it burned to the ground in 1999, the new church looks exactly the same and is too cute!

I had one hour off on Saturday and spent most of it sitting in my room writing. I’m almost a 1000 words in to my Steampunk Viking short story, which will be the one I’m sending to the Borderlands Anthology. The plan today (other than getting my hair done) is to add my handwritten stuff to the document on my laptop.

I’m also entering this as my NaNoWriMo piece, it’s not meant to be 50.000 words, but I’m thinking it’ll help me get things done (the deadline for the Anthology is also the 28th of November, which is neat since NaNo ends on the 30th).

Anyhow, I need to go drop my son off at a friend’s house and try to find a friend for my eldest daughter to play with… being twins (or I guess siblings are enough) demands the need for things to be super equal All The Time!
