Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Weekly Round Up – November 15th – 21st 2020 – Aretha, Alexander Technique, Christmas Book Fair, Reviews and Funnies

Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

Nothing really new to report this week on the home front as we have both been getting on with projects. I have been completing the first few rounds of editing on my new collection due out we hope in December, and also working on a couple of projects next year. It is the 25th anniversary of my weight loss and I will be releasing a new edition of my weight loss book Size Matters, updated and with new material. I also have a novel on the go which has been so long in the writing it will need completely updating to be current.. so plenty to be getting on with.

I did give myself a haircut this morning..I take care of the front and David tidies the back. One of the benefits of having very short hair. Our lockdown ends on December 2nd but we don’t know what restrictions will be in place in the run up to Christmas. My hairdresser is likely to open for extended hours but I am sure will be slammed to get everyone who needs colour and highlights in during that four weeks.

The days of popping in to have a wash and blow dry are gone, at least around here so that they can fit in the cuts and longer appointments. I don’t think my hair looks too bad but there again I had to do it without my glasses on and haven’t dare look in the mirror since!!!

Anyway.. with a mask and a hood because of the weather, only David is seeing my haircut these days and it is something he will just have to live with……

As always my thanks to William Price King for bringing music into our lives and Debby Gies, D.G. Kaye for her wonderful funnies to brighten our days. I am also grateful for all your support and comments during the week. They certainly keep me motivated.

  1. You are very inspirational, Sally with all of your projects and goals. I am extra curious about your book “Size Matters,” since I was very heavy as a teenager. Obviously many people relate to this topic. We are in the beginning of a more severe lockdown again. We have had practice with this, yet it always poses new challenges. Thank you for my smile. (a llama?) Darn cute, too. I extra love the Dogs emotional video. Have a great week. xx

  2. A great week, as always, Sally. I still have a few posts to catch up on. I had to cancel my hair appointment has my hair has stopped growing. Although it hasn’t fallen out it hasn’t grown since my last cut six weeks ago – saves me money but I feel bad for my hairdresser 🙂
