Knotty Kay

A very patient and loving husband dreaded my hair for me yesterday! It took almost the entire day and I believe poor hubby has sore hands today. Thank you babe.

I’d actually already tried to do the deed myself last weekend and it was pretty disastrous. I ended up soaking those out in the bath last Monday. I tried really hard to manage the work on my own, but was not to be. Poor Bill.

Oh, and as I promised Mum and Dad, here’s a pic of me with my new specs on.

I went to the optician a few weeks ago and have ended up needing glasses for the first time. I’d been finding it hard to read road signs while driving and although the optician said my prescription was minor I decided to go ahead and be able to see clearly again. I do like things to be in focus.

While there, the optician also commented that I had unusally large optic nerves, and that one of them was a lot bigger than the other. He couldn’t find anything else wrong and said that I may have just been born like that, but was surprised no optician had ever mentioned it to me before.

I called Dad when I got home and asked him to see if anything had been noted on my notes in Tavistock…nothing. Although, Dad did tell me that he’d once been to the doctor and was referred to see an optician because of the same trait. Our optician then took a look and didn’t make anything of it. *shrugs*

Trying glasses on was very confusing, had no idea what to get. I tried a few plastic frames on and a few made the shortlist until I decided they made me look French. Opted instead for these thin plummy coloured metal frames. Wearing them is very strange, but I certainly feel more comfortable when I drive now.

    For those wanting their haid dreaded … forget it! We took some breaks but all in all it was about 10-11 hours of work. My hands are actually a little sore today. :\

    Still, Kay looks ultra hot with them. XD

    Wahey!

    They look (American) Awesome! (American/) The colour look brighter on them somehow and they’ve gone HUUUge! 😀

    They really suit you and those are lovely glasses too.

    Be really, really grateful that spectacle design has come such a long way forward!!! It’s only really in the last few years that I’ve started to like wearing mine too. They even coordinate with your hair.

    Re: Wahey!

    Thank you!!

    Yeah, they have turned out thicker than I expected. I didn’t seem to have much hair and was very surprised that so little got so chunky!

    I’m very excited. 😀 Wheeeee!!

    Re: Wahey!

    I think we must have quite similar hair: sort of fine and flyaway when loose but lots of it, so when you dread it… WHOOOMPH!

    Big hair rules! 🙂

    Yay! I have a very beautiful daughter. Well done Bill.
    If I grow my hair really long can you do mine like that next year? But actually I don’t think that there will be much left on top soon :-(.

    Do the boys recognise you?
    The glasses suit you too!

    Guess what? We’re off to the beach today! Oh it’s a hard life down under!

    Love you my little possum 🙂

    So – what do you put in your hair to make it do that?
    I’m rather tempted to go low maintenance …

  12. boo_11 August 23, 2005 at 11:57 am #

    Wow the dreads look really cool! Have been tempted for many years but unfortunately the corporate world won’t allow it – but soon I will give it all up!

    Glasses suit you too!

    Hope all is well *hugs*

    Wow! You look so cute with dreads! Well done Bill, the perseverence and sore fingers were so worth it. 😉

    Thanks also for my Birthday phonecall babe, it made me really happy. I wish you could have been here to have a slice of cake and enjoy the curry too, it was so so yummy.

    Lots of love

    I am thank you!

    Hey…you’ve still not posted evidence of your new hair cut? *scowls*

  25. kaypow August 24, 2005 at 7:31 pm #

    Thank you Sammie!

    Bah humbug to the corporate world! 😉

    Give it up? – What are you planning to do?

    I’m glad (so far) that I took the plunge and did it. Love my dreadies!

    I had to go to the dentist yesterday and afterwards I walked to a foodcourt to get some lunch. I felt so much more confident and me again. It was great.

  26. kaypow August 24, 2005 at 7:33 pm #

    I wish I could have been there too. *growls* I want curry and cake…and don’t forget the wine!

    Glad you had a good birthday darling. You rule.

    YAY for DADDY!!!

    Love you too, glad I got to talk to you the other day. Big hugs to you and Mumsy.

    Not long now before it’s time for you to go home, but at least you’ll have the Mowgs to welcome you back and follow you around the house at your ankles when you get there!

    Re: Happy hair bunny

    You are welcome, you just need to dread Bill now and the doggles too…

    As for my hair, when I left the hairdressers it rocked [bottom of ear length choppy wispy trendy thing] 2 weeks later without any wax or stuff [for work] I look like early to mid nineties US grunge [it’s weird though it’s knocked years off me as long as i’m clean shaven]… maybe there will be some infest photos this weekend, but to honest you know me I dislike my body/ hair most of the time [though my dress sense has substantially improved recently *lol*]

    Re: WOW DREADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I smell of Knotty Boy Dreadwax right now.

    Lemme see..that appears to be a combination of beeswax, hempseed oil, avocado oil, Kukui Nut oil, Jojoba oil, African Shea Nut oil and vitamin oil. It’s rather nice actually. And I don’t know whether it is the smell or the hair, but whatever it is it seems to be having quite the aphrodisiac effect on hubby. So I’m not complaining.
