To Dye or Not To Dye

The before semi natural look lol. I think my hair is reasonably close to it’s natural colour but when I compared to the chart thingy there is a red tinge to some of it now lol.

As I write this post I am sat in the middle of the bathroom waiting for my hair dye to take. I was thinking of going mahogany red again but the dye that I use no longer sell the plummy mahogany red that I like so I went for Cosmic Blue in the Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL range – it’s black with like a blue tint.

I have the feeling that I’ve dyed my ears and most of my neck a funny blue colour now but I guess time will tell. I need to phone the hairdresser in the morning and book an appointment to trim the ends of my hair as they are really eugh lol.

So Happy Independence Day to any US readers. On Friday when I was at work one of my UK colleagues was talking to one of my US colleagues about the weekend and the US colleage asked how the UK Colleague was spending the long weekend. Erm well seeing as it isn’t a long weekend for us I guess UK Colleague will be back in work on Monday (that’s when we got into the conversation about seeing as we work for a US company couldn’t we have off the days for US holidays as well (such as Independence Day and Thanksgiving.)

Anyhoo, Friday was my brothers birthday. He turned 22. He had some friends round for pizza so I went to invade as well. Me and Dad picked off some cherries from the tree in his garden. I guess we have about enough for maybe one or two puddings. First thing though I have to sit and pit them all (take the stones out the middle) I guess you can put them in the pudding still with the stones just that you have to pick them out as you go.

I wasn’t feeling too good and after spending 10 minutes stood over the lol I figured it was time to go home to bed. I got home and crashed in bed. Next thing I knew it was 5:30am ish Saturday morning.


I spend most of Saturday on my own. The Kiwi had a famiy thing to go to and That Boy took the young people on a residential. I spend nearly all day doing washing. As we had lovely weather I alternated between washing and watching TV. I managed to watch the whole of Season 1 of A Town Called Eureka (which in the US and Australia it’s just called Eureka). My brother received Season 2 as a birthday presen so yesterday after going to the supermarket I went to his house and hung out with him and The Kiwi eating Chinese food and watching Season 2

(time up I’ll be back with another installment)

    When you dye your hair, be sure to put Vaseline (petroleum jelly) on your ears and neck. That way it won’t be stained with dye. I learned this the hard way, LOL.

      Someone suggested Vaseline last time and I didn’t think of this time! I will most definitely try it next time I’m so fed up of looking like a wally with a dyed neck and forehead lol. Oh and my ears hehe
