    Yep that sucks. My DH moved department at his work the week DD was born and spent 10 miserable months trying to make things work in the new team. A month ago he got transferred back and he's soooooo much happier even though there's lots of travel involved. He didn't realize how much it was bringing him down, all he did was complain about work all the time. Hope the situation improves for your DH too

    Easier said than done, but try not to let it get you down. It's out of your control. Stand by your DH he is probably feeling the pressure from both sides and in a really tough situation. He will feel even more pressure knowing how much it's upsetting you. I know if it were my hubby he would want to deal with it in his own way. I really hope things get better soon x

    thanks.

    I think a lot of the difficulty for me is that we have very different styles of reacting to these kinds of situations. ok very fiery and instantly want to go in all guns blazing. he's not like that at all and I get frustrated at his style which I perceive as too passive and I interpret this as not doing enough or not getting passionate about things.

    he keeps saying how much I'm supporting him which is good but I feel like if I can't motivate him to feel more empowered then I'm failing.

    the sh!tty thing is I've been in this exact same situation in a previous job so I know exactly how paralyzing it can be.

    argh so frustrating!! I just hope he finds something better soon before this all wears down on him too much. I need a functioning husband, not someone who is depressed and anxious!

    I am intrigued. Dyson have released a hair dryer... No idea why I currently have an appliance obsession!

    It is extremely expensive. I've not read any reviews of it yet but to be honest I'm wondering if it's more gimmick value. I have many dyson products and am never sure if they are all they are cracked up to be.

    Hideously expensive. Will be interesting to see if any of the salons take it up. I am pretty sure no matter how good the hair dryer is I could never get that 'just been to a salon' look! I'd probably rather put the $ toward the Dyson robot vacuum which is yet to be released in Oz. The YouTube clip makes it look pretty spesh. Probably cost as much as a small car though!

    I watched a YouTube review out of curiosity, because there's no way I would spend $700 on a hairdryer.
    She compared it to the Parlux (one of the current top of the range dryers, less than half the price).

    What I took from it - it's more ergonomic because the motor is in the handle, unlike current hairdryers, so a more comfortable and less heavy hold. It constantly monitors the temperature (20 times a second) so that it stays consistent, which means it's less damaging on your hair. It had a slightly faster dry time and her hair looked smoother, less fuzzy than the Parlux.
    She did say that it is really good, but you're definitely paying for the brand, sleek look and exclusivity of it (so pretty much gimmick value, as Sonja said).

    I was reading the comments on their page. A hairdresser asked if these were salon suitable and Dyson replied that they're releasing a salon version. I imagine that would be even more expensive, so I'd be surprised if many buy it.
