Spring things

Today, as the clocks went forward, it felt like Spring had arrived. The weather was good so time was spent in the garden chopping back all the old stalks and dead leaves and hoping that it'll encourage new growth.

Then time to do some housework. Well yes, that's the theory, however in practice I managed to get a wash on and that was it. The rest of the day was spent writing poems and course related activity. Anything in fact so that time was taken up until it felt too late for housework so on to the next planned activity... dying my hair.

The last time I did it I tried John Frieda foaming dye, in what is called Medium Natural Blonde, and it turned out fine. So I bought some more. And now my hair is... well certainly not medium blonde, more quite brown with red bits! Arghh! So in spite of telling myself that I wouldn't drink any wine tonight, I've decided to console myself by having a couple of glasses. So the inside Spring clean will have to wait until tomorrow.


  1. Having a glass or three of wine sounds good. The problem with cleaning the house is that it needs to be done all over again a short while later.

  2. I'm in total agreement Eileen... not of course that I need any more reasons to avoid housework!
