Hi lovelies! Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted for a little while, as someone who tries to post at least a few times a week, so over a week seems like forever for me! If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you'll have some idea as to why I've been rather absent for the past week. To get the not so nice stuff out of the way first, as you can see from the picture above, I had a bit of an accident! I was slicing potatoes and apparently, my thumb too, so my Tuesday night ended with three hours in A&E! I cut a good few mm clean off, no huge damage done, but I do have a good chunk of thumb missing for now. It should heal okay, but I could possibly have a slightly weird looking thumb from now on - oops! So, a few days later, my thumb stops hurting and I'm able to use it again slightly, but then my body decides it's not done with me yet and I get the flu! So I was knocked out for a few days on the sofa with lots of water and a very sympathetic puppy and now I'm (almost) 100% better and back on track!

So now for the exciting part and the other reason I've been a little MIA lately! I'm starting my own Beauty Salon! The lady who owned the salon I was working in, which is above a hairdressers, had to leave, so I was given the option of taking over myself. While it was a very scary decision to make, I've always wanted to own my own salon and one above a hairdressers seemed slightly less scary than starting from scratch elsewhere. So, between attempting to amputate my thumb and being stuck in bed, I've been in and out of the Salon sorting decorators, furniture etc etc, all ready for the re-opening day on 2nd March! It's still in progress but I'm getting there and I'm super excited to get going (hopefully with all 10 fingers mostly intact by then), If you'd like to have a nose, the salon is @mspabeauty on Instagram and M Spa Hertfordshire on Facebook, likes or follows would be much appreciated!

Thanks to those who have put up with me in my absence and to those who are new here, sorry for the very strange first post - welcome to Chloe's Way!
