Bad Hair Day



This morning Paul asked me to cut his hair so that he will look handsome and dashing when he walks out of Sydney airport next week.  Unfortunately I forgot to put the comb onto the end of the cutters so he now has a dashing streak up one side of his head. (I have been forbidden from taking a photo.)

I then decided to press my white linen dress ready for packing.  Clearly I had enjoyed my sauce laden lobster a bit too much last week and discovered a huge, orange blob.  I have spent the morning trying to remove the stain.

The day is going well.

  1. Oh dear - poor old Paul. I cut my husbands hair too and on one occasion did the very same thing, luckily he can't see the back of his head and I didn't mention it to him, to this day he doesn't know what I did. I have been very careful ever since. Another oh dear - I hope you managed to get the stain out, sometimes trying makes it even worse.

    1. An easy mistake to make but I shouldn't have laughed.

  2. I thought that you sounded lucky on Sept 6th @16:02 !
    As to the hair do, we watched a famous couple of English football teams on the TV on Friday and a lot of them had odd asymetrical hair cuts. I think that you should advertize and put your prices up.

    1. I spoke too soon! I should know better, I'm a very messy eater.

  3. I have to say I think she did it on purpose. The evil laughter and fake sorry were the clues.

    1. I don't do hair, but have to wield the buzz clippers on beard and scissors on the mouse-stache. I too have not fitted the comby thing and done a row of Minus 3 rather than the 2 setting that should have tidied things up. Well, do it yourself! is what I say, rather unhelpfully and with not much regret. BTW he never offers to put nail varnish on my toe or fingernails.

    2. Peter does my toes and fingernails. He applied a new red for me last night which he thinks is more suitable for Russia than my usual colour, blue.

  4. One good thing about hair is that it grows quite rapidly. So hey ho! What the hell and Paul will just be setting a new trend, which might just catch on :-)
    The dress is surely more important ah' poor you.

    1. I did offer to shave a stripe the other side of his head to match!

  5. Mrs Beaton will be turning in her grave. Your household management skills are clearly in dire need of an update Sue.

    1. Indeed they are but at least I'm still a supreme ping pong player.

    2. I don't think Mrs Beaton included a chapter on ping pong techniques.

  6. Have you tried toothpaste to remove the stain?

    1. Funnily enough that was my last resort. Seems to have worked.

  7. About 20 years ago I allowed my wife to cut my hair, which resulted in my visiting a barber for the first time since the mid 60's. "Looks like you've an industrial accident mate" he said. "No comment" I replied.

    1. Paul is wondering what the barber will say when he goes for a trim in Oz.

  8. Stains and linen are not good bedfellows.
