Afternoon all and sundry.
After many happy years of gert lush long hair flapping about in any sort of a wind, I decided to have it all lopped off.
It was a decision I took a few weeks ago and I thought I’d just kick it around a bit before heading for the scissors to see if I wanted to change my mind, but as time went on, the more it irritated me, the hotter I became on sunny days and so finally, yesterday, I lunged for the blades and ooh, I feel like a new woman!
It’s done me the power of good and as I’ve been run a little ragged of late, it’s given me a much needed boost of confidence and energy.
My friends all drew breath and double-taked my new mullet (allow me this little English travesty), commenting that it had shaved a few years off of my 2 score year and 3, which made me feel all smiley inside.
I’m now building up to having a major eco-colour deployment from Herb UK, the gentlest of all hair products and treatments and I’m quite fancying the Primeval Abby look…(sharp intake of breath from readers now too)…
Let me know your thoughts before I proceed towards the bottle.
Also, just needed to let you know I’m still busy talking and writing rubbish too! Here’s a rubbish round up. Tomorrow, as usual, I’ll be presenting my radio show ‘Slow Down and Green Up’ on Apple AM between 10am and 1pm – do tune in via the ‘Listen Live’ button.
As for wordy bits of a non-vocal variety, I recently penned and shot the newsletter for Recycle More which was great fun and I’ve a cracking interview in the summer edition of the Co-Op Magazine, available at a store near you and to read online too.
I’ve a filming day with the Soil Association soon, which I’m mighty excited about, more details when I can reveal them and the video from the Eco-Rally I drove in last week should surface in a week or two too!
Next week I’ll be doing a talkie thing at the Corsham Literary Festival, shortly followed by another thing at Ways With Words Literary Festival in the gorgeous Dartington Hall, then I’ll be back on the BBC (all being well) the following week…
At the end of the month, the hotly anticipated Book of Green will be out, for which I had the privilege of writing the foreword; be sure to get yourself a free copy from an outlet near you…
Can’t think of anything else exciting and imminent, except my tea, which is slow cooking in the solar oven…oh well, no rush there then…just time to hang out my smalls for a waft in the early evening breeze.
