So apparently migraines make you do crazy things. At least, that's my excuse for my moment of insanity today.
No pictures as our camera is still out of action (I think we're getting a new one soon though, thanks to insurance!); I can see how I'd do this post if I could put pictures in it.
Anyway, I digress.......
Today I had washed my hair, and after working through the morning doing various jobs I decided to straighten it. Will was napping so I knew I had a little while. But I just started thinking to myself...... if only I could have a hair cut. it's been so long. at least 11 months. (really, it has). if my hair was shorter, Will wouldn't grab at it all the time. it would take less time to straighten too. and I'd really like a change. As you can tell, by this time I had decided I wanted a hair cut. But this is where the migraine made me make a very insane decision..
I wanted my hair cut RIGHT THEN!!!! Could I wait until next week when I could actually make an appointment to see a hairdresser?? NO, of course not. William would only sleep another 15 minutes or so, and I wanted to straighten it. And I wanted it cut. Now.
So, I did the unthinkable. I stood in front of my bathroom mirror, and little by little, I cut my hair. Yes Mum, I know you're now having heart palpatations, you cannot believe you would produce a daughter who would do such a ridiculously spontaneous thing.
But I did it.
The bathroom floor was covered in hair, and my little boy was just gaping at me. What on earth?........... After visiting our wonderful friend Nev this afternoon to um..... "tweak it" a bit (ie. straighten out the crocked bits- it's really hard to cut your own hair! probably why no-one does it; thankyou Nev for your help :))....... it's looking good. I mean, I really really like it!! I haven't ever worn my hair this short. It's just under my shoulders, has a few little layers in it and will be so much cooler for Summer. Today was hot, so I already had a chance to feel the difference!
It seems to be going down ok with the family....... and aside from Elijah's comment "oh, you're a boy now Mamma!" (it's really not that short), I'm happy with it.
Even if it was a little spontaneous.
Hope this mirgraine goes away soon. Who knows what other crazy things I might do.....
