                hi jeanette
                breaking your nails thats a real disaster. though the look men give you when you complain - they just dont understand.

                i put a red hair colour on my blonde/grey hair before christmas. ok so now its growing out and i have no idea what to do with it. another disaster. i know i could wear a had but..........

                    i think i will stick to grey sort of blond but i dont know how im going to get there. i got my dog grooming shaver out and was contemplating cutting the lot off. then i talked myself out of it. but then im thinking what the hell it will all grow back.

                      That’s how I did it, didn’t shave it all off but did it really short and my hair grows really quick x

                        That's exactly what I did, Denise! Shaved the whole lot off with the dog's clippers and it felt fab-u-lous Dahling 👨‍🦲

                          Sorry about your fall, Janette. Hope you're not too sore...

                          My carers have been trying to get me to agree to them putting gel nails on me - so far I haven't capitulated!! They do file my nails and put on nail varnish though, in some wild colours and with seasonal stickers 🤩 It lasts for ages due to my hands not working 😄 xx

                              So sorry for your fall Janette .. such a horrible feeling ! Sorry about your nails too !

                              Go for gel nails Ellie and the clippers Denise ! My hair lady is coming to the house tomorrow. She is so lovely and Stuart has got expert at washing bleach off as he knows how to position me in the wetroom. ( it took him a while of him shouting.. is it meant to be blue ?) Can't wait as my roots look like a blackbird has landed on my head !

                              She cuts his hair too and does my gel nails.. going to go for each one in a whacky colour !

                              Sorry Phil... got sidetracked. We think 18 x
