Hi Ho folks,
I am still around and trying to catch up with all the lovely blogs in between ‘this girls’ rather sleepy moments- must be going through a bad patch, as the slightest amount of activity exhausts me- and it’s the first time in weeks (and weeks) that I haven’t set my hair all over….cor, something must be wrong!
I decided yesterday whilst in the shower that I would try a pin curl set, which will be the first in about five years. (you see, I get all my good ideas whilst in the shower!) Well, I started with great gusto, found my lovely stash of ye olde bobby pins, sectioned the front out and started pinning away, but unfortunately such enthusiasm waned after the sides and I gave up (‘just like that’, said in the Tommy Cooper manner)-Why? Well, I have too much hair! Not that I’m complaining or nuffin, I’m very grateful to have such a lot of the stuff, but it does make setting a real faff. Oh I do envy the gals who can set their hair so beautifully on just a few rollers. For a decent set on my noggin it takes about thirty rollers-No kidding!
This morning I quickly put up the back using my trusty metal rollers which gave enough curl to see me through the day. The front on the other hand was super- mind you I did keep the pin curls in all day and night! I brushed the sides up, then brushed the front and pinned. After unpinning the back (which was still slightly damp) I brushed and decided to keep the back smooth and plain, as the front was rather wayward and reaching for the sky (Oh, I love that film- isn’t Kenneth lovely?!) so I brushed it down and under and kept it tidy with a long hair clip given to me by my great aunt!
And here be the pictures…
Actually, I don’t know why I am bothering to show any of them, as none of them show me curly top very well! Ah well, me and Donald the wheelie donkey had fun. Is Wheelie even a word? Well anyhoo, Donald is on wheels.
Relaxing next to my beloved meat safe,
Finding a new book….
…Yes this book could change your life too!
|Much jollity was shared- making Donald’s ears as high as my hair!|
