So, a short one today because I’m running out the door to use what’s left of the day before the kids finish school for two weeks.

First, I’m sending up a cheer because I found my camera battery charger! Hooray for that! I’ve been racking my brain, trying to figure out where on earth I could have put it, and using my phone to take photos instead. Which is fine but unsatisfying. I like the clarity of my camera.

The other thing is that having decided to henna my hair, I realised that I wasn’t going to have time and used a chemist-bought hair dye instead. Bittersweet Chocolate it said! It isn’t. It’s black. Shiny, healthy looking black but so dark against my skin that I look decidedly Morticia-like. I put makeup on yesterday, then went out in the car and when I saw myself in the rear-view mirror, all I could think was; “Oh my god…..an older, plumper, more harried Snow White…what have I done?!” It may have been the pinkish lipstick…..
