Year 2 Day 8: Lather, Rinse, Repeat
I finally broke down and forced myself into purchasing more shampoo and conditioner today. Previously I had been surviving on two giant 800 ml bottles of TRESemme'...maybe since January even, but they are both bone-dry now. It even got to the point that putting a bit of water inside "to extend the life" of the contents was no longer effective.
Unfortunately, Morrison's didn't have the size of TRESemme' I was looking for and I simply cannot justify spending £3.65 on one skinny little bottle (x2) when I recall getting the previous 'economy-sized' ones on offer for something like £3/each. So, I bit the bullet and bought some cheapo Alberto Balsam crap. It smells lovely, but isn't as effective in the deep-cleansing department. Since beggars can't be choosers, you can't really argue with £1 per bottle.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
