Well, I finally cracked. I’ve had to buy a pack of hair clips to keep my locks reasonably tamed. Fortunately, even though I had to get them from the children’s section, at least I didn’t have to get anything from the Frozen or Princesses range, but I now look like a superannuated Heidi. Mind you, it wouldn’t have been my lowest point, I had to use my best Girl Scout ingenuity and rootle around in one of my many toot drawers for something to keep my hair away from my face. So, what did I use, a freezer bag clip! I knew my minor fetish for small kitchen gadgets would finally pay off. I was fortunate to last have a hair appointment the week businesses closed down, if I hadn’t taken that appointment (and believe me I did consider whether to go) then I would be tripping over my fringe by now.

A friend sent for a pair of hair clippers for himself (the sort that cuts hair on various body parts that I don’t particularly wish to think about. When you were ‘designed’ chaps, someone should have put their hand down when you were asked if you wanted ear hair. Eeeew!). Anyway, to keep me amused my friend videoed himself wielding this instrument on his own bonce, and I have to say that he made a pretty good job of it, although he didn’t think to use the longer cutter and gradually work his way down to a shorter cut, he just went for broke. Let’s just say that it may be a good thing that he’s currently having to work from home! I can imagine those ladies and gents who are slowly returning to work having donned scarves or beanies and the like, are counting the days until their hairdresser opens to receive clients once again. And if I have to wait for many more weeks before I can get my shaggy locks tended, I may have to borrow those clippers myself.
