It's happened....

I'm going grey! As if shedding hair like a golden-retriever post pregnancy isn't bad enough I AM GOING GREY!!! 

I thought I had escaped, I thought it would never happen to me! I realise this sounds ludicrous but at 61 my dad has no grey, well not on his head. A beard however is not something my dad can grow because it comes through grey, brown, ginger and black it looks bonkers. But I'd hoped I had inherited his genes. I mean I never plan to grow a beard so it's fine I'll take the full head of almost black hair along with the dodgy beard gene thankyou very much, I figure by the time I do start sprouting whiskers I'll hopefully be too old too care what colour they are!

Now I know some of you may think 'just accept it gracefully' and to you I politely say 'Sod off'. I have dark hair ... 


... Really really dark hair and the intruder that my husband kindly pointed out to me is almost WHITE! Do you understand how crazy I'm going to look! Like Cruella bloody De Vil that's how crazy!

And as for the Mr, having pulled out the offending hair at my request he enjoyed asking if I wanted to go out for dinner,  at The Grey Horse (much guffawing), pointed out that soon the carpets may match the drapes! (More guffawing) and repeatedly wondered at how fast I would look like my Nana.... I wonder if he realises He's never getting lucky AGAIN! 

Right now I'm off to stock up on hair dye!

  7. I found a grey hair not long after I had my wee lad. Now rather than dyingy hair for a wee change or to feel good about myself, I dye it like a military mission to keep those wee buggers at bay.
    My mum says to relax, that it might only ever be one but as far as I'm concerned, 1 is too many!
