Happy Holidays

Many South African businesses, including clients, shut down for the Christmas and New Year holidays this week/today. If you're one of the people closing down today, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and we'll reconnect next year.

For now, I don't have to do any deadlined work, except for the milestones that I've set for myself. Spent most of the day reading bids. Bleh!

Went to the barber and cut my hair. Ja, I know I'm supposed to go to a hairdresser, but I've discovered I like having very short, no fuss hair. And it costs me only R10 (approx $1.25) per month for the haircut. So now I feel refreshed, and ready to take on summer. Yay!

WHAT!!!!!!!!!! TEN RONT!

Good lord! I pay R160 just to TRIM mine!!!!

Yup. TEN Rand. But then, don't forget it's a barber, not a stylist. And it's been my experience that hairdressers who work with caucasian hair are rather pricey. One of my friends pays over R650 for a colour, styling and trim, while I'd pay about R200 for a relax, trim and styling at an uplmarket salon at the mall nearby. Go figure, cos I always thought Black hair was the one with hassles and more work!

I pay an average of £24 in the UK for a trim and that is cheap! That is roughly R300. You are sooo lucky! Low maintenance is the way to go.

Happy New Year to you. Hope it was and will be a good one.

Wow - R10!!! I thought I had discovered a bargain at R80. My normal hairdresser charges R200!
