Today I had my hair coloured and cut for the second time by a very talented hairdresser who I’ll call B. She spends a great deal of time making sure she has the perfect colours mixed and places the foils like her life depended on it. She and I chat about my daughter and about … More Ex husbands and hair dos
She whipped a candy at me. Yep, my lovely little girl went too far tonight. Welcome to “I’m a tired little kid that doesn’t know how to just chill out.

The smallest scrape or bump to the head can result in alligator tears and days of her saying it still hurts. So when she came to me with her latest ailment I took … More Oh boy, that doesn’t look right.
