First Cut Of The Season

Good Morning,

.

Well, things have picked up weatherwise now.

Yesterday it was so sunny in the afternoon that we went for a ‘pootle about’ in the car …. and with the top down too!

.

It was lovely driving around Northumberland, gazing at the lush greenness which suddenly changes into bare landscapes with only scrub and sheep farms as far as the eye can see.

It is just a shame that buying fuel for the car is so prohibitively expensive now, but it was a fine if expensive end to the perpetual feeling of winter.

.

My hair is still looking better after the impromptu haircut, even at the end of the second day.

I am so glad that I took the chance rather than just to persevere with the ‘bag lady’ look.

.

I think that we older ladies should be very careful about fearing to make changes which could end up being a mistake because it seems to freeze time if you do that.

.

Just think how many mature ladies wear strange hairstyles which consist of long hair which is ornately clipped up, twisted, back-combed and arranged, in order to cover thin patches and the like.

I have never seen one of them where a sharp modern loose cut would not have appeared fresher, younger and infinitely more modern.

I mean, young women colour, cut, chop and alter their hair whenever the mood takes them …. and it usually works even if it looks solidly punky.

If mine goes all-white and it does not look good then I may well dye it some outlandish colour …. perhaps a similar blue to the one I always like to do my toenails.

.

We have no specific plans for today but I think that it is probably time to spent a few hours in the garden, or even give the grass it’s first cut of the new year.

Big H has bought some lawn feed, containing  a moss and weed killer, so perhaps we shall put that on too.

.

At the moment, I am suggesting to him that we buy a couple of apple trees, so that we can pick our own fruit eventually and even put a hammock in between them in the future.

What a sweet thought to lie there reading under the apple blossoms.

.

On that fine note I shall end today’s post, which only leaves me to wish you a happy day today.

So have fun.

Jaksie.
