Happy New Year!

Hello everyone and happy new year!

Yes, I've been awol for a while, but rest assured I wasn't hiding the cupboard sulking or weeping and wailing and gnashing my teeth (although I must admit the thought crossed my mind ... heheh)

Not only did I have my 3 kids 24 hours a day for the holiday period (CAN YOU SAY EXHAUSTING???) but my Sisterlocks business really picked up and I have completed all three of my qualifying heads with numbers four and five scheduled for January and February. I actually have to slow things down a bit because I won't have time for (weekends with) my family otherwise!

I had a bit of a conundrum trying to decide what to do about my Sisterlock-less head when meeting my clients. In the end - I just bared my bruises so to speak. I have been fortunate in that none of them ran away screaming and were all rather encouraging with their comments - so far being bald has made no difference to those who have come for me although I still feel bad that I can't show them my own locks so they can have an idea of what to expect.... I suppose I could always dig out 'the bag' but seriously that might freak them out hahahah.

I've also been working on perfecting recipes for a line of natural cosmetics (not makeup, hair oil, hair and body butters, rich moisturisers, shampoos, conditioners, spritz, bath melts   -that kinda thing). AND AND oh yeah I forgot to say this aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago - I'm back at College (again hehehe) training to become a Holistic Massage therapist (more on that some other time). 

I can't sit and moan about what I've lost - I must focus on what I still have to give... on more than one occasion I've been told I have 'healing hands' so massage therapy looks like a good choice for me. Wish me luck!

What else? Well - baby boy turned 2 (wow!) and the golden child (i.e my eldest) received an award (for academic excellence) at her school's speech day.  Had the family over at ours for Christmas and had loads of fun calling the rest of the clan over in Barbados and Trinidad and hollering our greetings at the tops of our voices.

So all in all - I've been busy - after all, the show must go on! Thanks to those who are still following and of course to those who are believing with me for healing. Some day eh? MUAH Big kiss and hug and THANK YOU!

Now for some photos cos otherwise this will just be a boring bunch of text.

With love from London

Wow, I'm so glad you're busy. Busy means money and we all know that's a necessity!i'm happy for you sis. And all the best with the natural stuff, I'll probably be one fo your first customers the day it starts up.Had a 'friend' who offered to bring me stuff from the UK.I duly sacrificed money-i don't even get personal spending money that's how bad things are-and ordered some body butter and african black soap. She got it. She landed in SOuth Africa in December, on the 3rd. my stuff...hasn't made it here. She's kept it. Said she wanted to 'relax' with her family before sneding it to me or meeting up with my brother in the city she was in.(She was in Johannesburg I'm in Cape Town.)Needless to say,i'm disappointed in her.Anyway, South Africa has a dearth of natural products so I was so excited when she offered to bring it.Ok, essay over.Point-I look forward to ordering and receiving via the mail, LOL.So hurry up!!
