New haircut & another book read

So this week has been pretty ace. It's been a little stressful at work but everything is better when it's the weekend.

On Friday I finished a book I've been reading for a few weeks now.

Life after life by Kate Atkinson. It took me a good 1/3 of the book before I even got into it.
I was very confused at the beginning. The book description read;

What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right?

During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath.
During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale.
What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to?
Life After Life follows Ursula Todd as she lives through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. With wit and compassion, Kate Atkinson finds warmth even in life's bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past. Here she is at her most profound and inventive, in a novel that celebrates the best and worst of ourselves.
Eventually I was absolutely captivated. The story began to add up and I couldn't put the book down. I was incredibly impressed with the writing style (I say this like author's aren't professionals but you know what I mean... it was an very complex writing structure.) It was a story that was both sad and beautiful.

So anyway, today saw me having a new haircut. It was the shortest cut I've had in about 10 years so I was a bit scared! I had Tony from Arthur Razor cut if off. He's a barber based in West London, both friend and client. We are currently re-designing his website which you can see live soon at He's cut Dan's hair for almost a year now and always done an amazing job. He's cut the likes of Colin Firth as well. Oooh la la.

See some snaps of my new look!
