First Friday letters of February

It is February today… the second month of the year. How did that happen?!?
It is also Friday, and we all know what that means… Letters time!

Dear January. Where did you go? I know you’re not my favourite month, and I can’t say I’m exactly sorry to see you go, but I was hoping to get a little more done before February turned up!

Dear hair. Sometimes, I hate you. How is it even possible for a shampoo that was fine two weeks ago to stop working on you? Does anyone else out there become immune to their shampoo after a while or is it just me?

Dear weather. I’m confused! First we had snow, then freezing rain and black ice. This week it’s gradually got warmer – peaking with highs of a whole 16°C on Wednesday. And then there’s the rain – we’ve had lots of rain over the past few days, although yesterday was a mixture of cloud and sunshine. Next week, it’s supposed to get colder again. What is going on?!

Dear new kettle. I love how red and shiny you are! Now I just need the toaster to break so I can replace that with a red one too.

Dear cross stitch. I’ve been neglecting you this week, but I really need to get a move on if I’m going to have three kits completed by May! I’ll be back on you with a venegeance this weekend.

That’s all from me. I appear to have done nothing this week! Click on the button for more Friday’s letters.



A hairy problem

I may just have the most annoying hair in the world. The top part, close to the roots, tends to get greasy really quickly. The ends, on the other hand, get dry really easily. So shampoo for greasy hair is great for the top half of my hair but leaves everything from the middle down looking like straw. Auburn straw with split ends. And shampoo for dry, damaged hair leaves the bottom half of my hair silky smooth while the top half looks like explosion in a vegetable oil factory. It makes finding a good shampoo for me rather challenging, so I’m always pleased when I find one that’s just right.
Unfortunately, the just rightness never seems to last for long. I’ll use my new shampoo quite happliy for two or three months then BAM, my hair suddenly seems to become immune to it. I’ll wash my hair perfectly normally, rinse out all the shampoo and a few hours later my hair is so limp and greasy you’d think it hadn’t been washed for three days. It’s slightly strange and very, very annoying.

So last night as the boyfriend and I were going to bed he said to me “Didn’t you wash your hair this morning?” “Yeees,” I answered, suspecting I knew what was coming. “I thought so,” replied the boyfriend. “It’s just that it looks really greasy now.”
*Sigh* Time to find a new shampoo again methinks…
