There was a storm this afternoon - thunder, lightening, very, very frightening. Unable to get outside to do any gardening I decided to use the time to dye my eyebrows. I am very blonde/grey and I like a little definition so that people can actually see when I raise a quizzical eyebrow. I’m not after a scouse brow but I find that I need to leave the dye on a bit longer than the prescribed 10 minutes to get any effect.
So while my brows were ‘cooking’ I decided to do some upholstery work. This is an old bedroom chair that I am re-covering, first with calico and then some plush damask. It is very therapeutic stretching the fabric and tapping the tacks into place. I lost track of time and suddenly realised that an hour had gone by since I put the dye on my brows.
For godsake they’re not even a matching pair! I may have to wear a hat for a week or two.
