Oh the delight of a new hair style! For years I have had the same hair-dresser – a charming man who - as he often maintained, knew every hair of my head and frequently waxed lyrical about the state of it. So what’s your problem you may ask? Well the problem was that he was quite proprietal about it. And I would ask him to take it over to this side, to make it less heavy there, to cut it in close there and he would sweetly ignore me and do what he had been doing for years. And absolutely no tinkering with colour or tints would he contemplate. So I would go in every seven weeks or so for a cut and blow dry. Often I would be the only person there as he has lots of other interests and I often felt he was just doing my hair as a favour.
We arranged that he would do my hair the day before the wedding and I was to phone and remind him. I started phoning a week before and each day there was no reply and no answering machine. I assumed that he had decided to stop hair -dressing in favour of his other pursuits. In desperation I rang a number someone had given me, got an appointment with the stylist she had recommended and walked into a lively buzzing salon. She hadn’t time to cut it but still gave me a respectable hair – do and yesterday I went to her for a re-style .Now I have a chic new coiffure and mixed emotions of liberation and guilt.

This infuriated lots of bloggers and would, I imagine, harm the charity he was supporting. Like most people I have regular charities I support, and occasionally am tempted to support an on-line one BUT only if one can do this by snail mail. I suspect quite a few people of my age group feel like this.
At last a TV programme that MTL and I can enjoy together and if you like mountains you have to watch it. As an actor I find Griff Rhys Jones too quirky but in documentaries such as ‘Mountain’ Sunday BBC1at he is just the job. He starts in North West Scotland with Monroes – mountains over 3000ft, and then Skye. Later there will be the
