Pressing Merrily On

It was an easy mistake to make. Especially at a time like this, Christmas coming, credit crunch munching, hair growing - longer and longer -

I mean anyone with as rambling a hairstyle as mine, anyone as short of time and cash, anyone feeling as unduly accomplished with their pruning shears as me - anyone could have made the very same mistake...

Couldn't they?

Have given themselves a full Milly-Molly-Mandy haircut I mean. 
In their middle years.

One minute I was peering happily into the bathroom mirror, snip, snip, humming softly, feeling pleased, thinking - crikey, I  can't really focus so well up close any more... ah well, never mind, press on.... hum, hum, snip, snip -

and the next minute as I laid down the scissors - ta dah!!  There she was in the mirror, peering back at me, a little older than I recall -

Oh no...

What!


Hnnnnn!!

s*******t!!! 

It has taken an eternity
and a magnifying glass
to get it all,
nicely,
back 
to normal....








Yet I have!!









Ok, I exaggerate a little,
but only, I regret to say,
a tad...

Oh, what memories this post brings flooding back! I often used to have a go at cutting my own hair, but finally learned my lesson.

Never cut your fringe whilst it is wet.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only fan of Milly Molly Mandy - yet another thing we have in common.

Next time why not splash out and get yourself a pudding basin? As a template - it will last for years.

Thank you all for your sane comments -
I'm hopeless both as a blogger and as a groomed individual. Real life gets in the way. Damn!

Granny on the Web said...

Don't ask how I got here! I tend to roam on and on through various blogs and then forget where I was going ( guess? Yep I'm a senior)
Not to worry, I am here now. I see you haven't posted on nigh on a year... so I hope all is going well with you ( your disentanglement etc) So I thought I would comment and cheer you on, because I have enjoyed your humour and don't want to see you waste it.
Cheers to you.
Love Granny
