Many moons ago when I was younger and still cutting edge I had a hankering for coloured hair. It had by then become more acceptable - in my youth it was not the thing at all! However although I yearned for this hair I possessed employment which frowned on such abandonment. I waited, I have the patience of cat when needed:)
Then I retired from employment but was so busy caring for parents I forgot for a while my dream of colour. Then one day I went forward and dyed my greying hair turquoise and fuchia pink. Lovely.
This week I decided on a change - I would go orange and bronze - well it was bright - I had wanted bright!
Three thing Thursday is the brainchild of nerd in the brain. To note each week three of the things which have made me smile. Difficult to choose as so much does:)
1) when I look in the mirror I am reminded of the ginger topped clowns of long ago visited circuses - A little too bright but it will fade to just the shade I imagined - it was a big smile I flashed at the mirror.
2) my friend from forever/editor came to stay and while we were out I got tempted into buying more yarn (I don't need) for my scrumbles - they were beautiful and in a sale, who could resist?
3) The other morning I heard my (I claim for my own because they have adopted my garden as a des. res. ) wild doves coo-ing to each other. They had perched on the archway and they beaked each others necks softly - it doesn't feel like spring yet but, they brought it with them.
