Going Grey Gracefully?
I remember having a conversation with my mum many years ago about wether she should keep dying her hair or go grey gracefully. It came to mind yesterday as I sat in the hairdressers chair having my roots done. I have been dying my hair since I was a teenager. It has been all different colours including green streaks at one stage (a happy accident). The last few years I have been pretending I'm a blonde so the grey doesn't show up so much. It's not that I don't like grey hair, I have a hankering after a long grey pigtail, it will suit my mad cat lady ambitions, but I don't think I'm ready for that step yet, after all 50 is the new 30 isn't it? Are you ready for the grey yet or have you already taken the plunge, and how do you go about it anyway? It is all very well being grey but it is the growing out stage that I don't think I could cope with!
Talking of hair, I haven't seen any mo's about for Movember this year yet, I hope it is still popular it is a brilliant way of raising awareness and money for mens health. Do you know someone who is taking part?
I had some cooking apples left over from the chutney making the other day so I thought I would make some seasonal tasting baked apples. Remove the cores and stuff the holes with mincemeat, cut a line around the middle of the apple so it can expand as it cooks and put in the oven until they are soft. Very easy and delicious.
I had a celeriac in my veg box this week, I have put it in soups and mashed it with potatoes before, has anyone got any more exciting ideas of what to do with it?
