So the top of the dress wasn't quite right; the best thing to do would be to re-shape and re-cut the top to fit better. Somehow it had waaay too much fabric on the sides but not nearly enough where it was needed. since I'm leaving tomorrow, I decided to put the project on hold until I get back. I might have been able to re-shape and re-cut and re-sew the dress today... but that would be stressful and I don't want to be stressed.
I did dye my hair today. The colour is different than what I normally get, which I guess is a bit darker and more mahogany. What I got is a lighter red with lighter orange-y highlights. It's not that bad, and it'll be fine, but it's different from what I'm accustomed to. My roots are definitely light - in fact, they're pale blond and pale, pale red... because of the grey there :) As I say, the colour will be fine and it'll wash out. I tried really hard to not get the dye under my patches and I think I succeeded.
I'm finishing up a load of laundry while I type this. When the laundry is done I'll pack my stuff for the trip. I'm not gone for too long and so I'm hoping to pack relatively lightly. Clothes-wise, packing is no problem... it's the entertainment stuff that's hard to pack. I'll be spending two full days on the train and I need stuff to do. So do I take the laptop? Do I take my books? Both? We'll see.
Since I might not have the laptop with me, I probably won't be updating this blog over the weekend. I'll definitely give an update Sunday or Monday.
