My main object in writing this is to change the look of my Blog page for when I log on each day to see what you are all up to. Even if it's only me that sees it, it was getting a little boring. So this post is really about having a change of scenery :)
I thought I would tell you that I just gave myself a haircut. (Cutting edge news, this.)
Of course I always give myself a bit of a clip 'n chop around the front of my head, (where I can easily reach), in between visits to my chosen (no complete disasters yet) hairdresser - who does actually get a little snippy (soo glad I could use that word there), on occasion about my DIY attitude. But when your hair grows this quickly and a hairdresser visit costs $40.. she's learned to live with it.
(I asked a friend where she gets her hair cut. She always looks lovely, and I thought that surely I could find somewhere cheaper. She pays $120! Sigh.)
Anyway, this time I thought that I would try doing over my whole head. My method for cutting the back and other parts I couldn't see was just to kind of grope around and cut anything that seemed a little long or thick. I amused myself occasionally by wondering if Neil would notice. (If you know Neil then you are probably smiling at the very idea too :) Occasionally I would start day-dreaming, and suddenly notice that the bathroom sink was getting very full of hair. It's almost addictive once you start..
It's not a complete disaster. Perhaps a little 'Meg Ryan'-short-and-uneven in (most) places. (I wish!) I've had worse. And - I saved $40 :)
