I am recuperating.
I’d gone a long time with a hairstyle I didn’t like, not in the summer anyway, too “long” and, therefore, too hot. I needed something a little shorter, and since I’ve always cut my own hair, today was the day. It’s a very exhausting ordeal for me. More so now that I can’t stand up for very long, so I put a stool in the bathroom where this job is accomplished, and I chopped away until there was hair everywhere, all over the sink, the floor, the loo, and especially all over me, down my shirt, down my back, and now I itch like mad. But I am not ready to take a shower yet so I will itch for today.
This is as good a shot as I could get of the new haircut:
It’s up past my ears in the front which is a big change for me lately and short in the back too.
Oh boy it feels good though.
What will happen is I will keep snipping at it every time I shower for a while before I get it all even, especially the back which is hard to do on one’s own. I have a 3-fold mirror in the bathroom so I can open the two end mirrors and see around back which makes cutting my own hair even possible. Otherwise I could never do it.
I just found this old picture of my Mum and me in the front garden here at CC. I am definitely turning into her… this was probably taken 20 or more years ago. (I cropped it and blew it up a bit so the quality is poor).
