Best of British - Day 4

Day 4 saw us travelling into Nottingham, my home town. We went to see my old neighbours Sue & Dave who live opposite our house that we are renting out. It was hard to see the house and not be able to go in but everything looked ok. Sue had made us some lovely Victoria Sponge cake, my favourite! It was so was great catching up with them just a shame we didn't have longer.

After our visit to Sue & Dave's we made our way to the hairdressers, we both had an appointment. My hair was in desperate need of a cut and colour. I am finding it very expensive in California at the hairdressers ($150 plus tip as opposed to £50).

Then off we went to see some friends (I had the whole day planned out!)

Meeting baby Jack

Meal at Zizzi's with friends (Catherine, me and Leanne)

More catching up with Jermaine, Lisa and Andrew

I had Pizza!

After all that catching up, we didn't get back to my mums house until nearly midnight.

It was lovely seeing everyone and great catching up on gossip! but I don't feel like I had enough time, it was all so rushed. I'm not sure how to make sure next time I visit that it doesn't feel like this??


  1. Are you in the U.S. temporarily? $150 is a lot for hair. I pay much less. You look happy...glad you had fun.

    1. Hey susie, we are in the US for at least 3 years.....I've asked around about hairdressers and that seems to be the going rate for a cut and colour! It is very expensive in California, I am going to see if I can find cheaper but I want to look good, I might have to colour it myself and just get it cut, that would be cheaper. I'm lucky that my hair stays ok for about 3 months. I had a lovely evening, just wish I'd had more time but it's finding a balance between friends and family! X

    2. Some people go to beauty schools to save money.

    3. I definitely need to check out some more options, or find a friend whose a hairdresser! That's not a bad idea? X

    4. Yes that is pretty much the going rate unless you want to check out a Supercuts. They aren't all that "super" but they are cheap.

  2. Looks like you had absolute fun! Nice pics too...

  3. Wow I can't get over the $150 for a haircut :o lol
