I should not be left unattended (video)

I have decided to do something dumb fun. 😳

I’m going to screw around with my hair again. πŸ™„

I’ll tell you something, I am not ready to be grey. And, because my hair is growing so fast, my roots show every two weeks or so.

The grey is of course most visible at my part. The top of my head. 😡

So. I’m going to take a strand of hair from the top of my head at the part and bleach it blonde.

I may or may not post pictures.

Worst case scenario I can always colour over it again…

Or, if I get frustrated, I’ll shave it all off. That’ll teach my hair a lesson. πŸ˜‚

Time will tell. Stay tuned for more hair shenanigans.


I did it. I’m currently typing this about an hour later with tinfoil in my hair. Just certain spots. I bleached some strands.

Then I did another stupid thing. I ate pie with my third and final coffee. For breakfast.

Pie is not protein. Protein is good for me for breakfast, better than sugar.


The pie was delicious. It was a spring-pie: rhubarb strawberry.

Sorry not sorry.

Off to wash off my bleach-y hair. I may or may not have some bald spots shortly.


I may have made a mistake.


The towel is currently wrapped around my head covering the mistake not mistake. I’m scared…what did I do?

I really should not be left unattended…



Well the teens are still asleep so I can’t give you a reaction. I can tell you from previous reactions they wont’ be thrilled.

Oh well.

Anyway I think the whole strand rather than just the top inch would have looked better but I had that bleach colour in for the full 30 minutes and I don’t know what I did wrong. Like I said in the video, I’ll do that part again in a couple of days.

So that killed a couple of lockdown hours.

See you in the comments. πŸ˜›

  1. You can never go wrong with pie πŸ˜‰ I keep meaning to acquire some rhubarb seeds, so thanks for the reminder πŸ˜‰

    I quite like your hair. It’s certainly come out a lot better than when I tried to trim my own…


    1. I want to fix the strand, to make it blond all the way down. Maybe later today or tomorrow…

      Generally I like it. I used to be scared to do things like this, what would people think or say?

      I’m not like this anymore. I have woken up in the past two years and realized, life is short. If not now, when…all that stuff.

      I’ll keep you posted of my hair situation. πŸ™„

    1. I’ve been buying the lighter colour browns hoping it would help do the transition but because my natural colour is dark brown the color just ends up darker for some reason. The only way that I can get a lighter brown is to bleach the natural colour out.

      I’m just fooling around for now. It’s not like I can go anywhere anyway so if it screws up it’s not the end of the world. πŸ˜€

  2. While I am looking forward to going grey (the women in my family have really pretty silver hair and I pray to the DNA Gods I am that lucky), I will admit I changed my hair colour multiple times during lockdown. Mainly because I wouldn’t have to worry about breaking the dress code at work. So have fun! Just don’t do too much damage.

  3. I’ve never been one to fuss much with hair. Seems like a lot of work to me. But then, I’ve been (not so) patiently waiting for grey for at least a decade. Only a little, at the temples. Sigh. You’d think that by now, I’d have earned it.

    1. My grandmother lived to 92 and if I remember correctly she had some brown left in her hair right up until her 80s…

      Her daughter, my mom, start colouring her hair when I was still a child. She took after her father who I remember as having had white hair for as far back as I can remember. I was the first grandchild…

      Anyway there’s only so much writing I can do. At some point I have to take a break and let stuff rattle around in my head. Which is why I messed around with my hair. πŸ™„πŸ™ƒ

      1. I have sisters, all of whom have a significant measure of grey, which they either flaunt, or color over. Same with my brother. I am the only one who seems to be taking after my (crazy, and not pleasantly so) grandmother–who was nearly all mousy brown on her deathbed, in her early nineties. Sigh. It’s raining and snowing out–I’m supposed to be out planting trees, but I shudder at the damp of it.
