New Image

On Friday I had a text message from my daughter asking 'Should I dye my hair dark again, or have it cut short?'. I diplomatically dodged the question and said that whilst having dark hair suited her, last time she did it she got bored with it quickly, whereas it had been a while she she had a major hair-cut. Later that afternoon, I logged onto Facebook and saw that her profile mentioned short hair. A cold rush of fear swept over me, as I tried to work out whether this could somehow be my fault if she didn't like it. Then logic resumed and I figured that if she was publicising it on Facebook, then she must be happy. And indeed she was.


It's so nice and it makes her look quite different. But of course she now needs a whole new wardrobe of clothes to go with the new image. Like mother, like daughter.

On the knitting front, I am pleased to announce that baby Sophie's cardigan is now finished, although this now means I have to start tackling that mountain of ironing that has built up over the week :-(

She looks gorgeous! And I do like a mum who is prepared to enjoy a bit of experimentation - my mum didn't believe in hair colouring or drastic cuts (or perms in the 80's) and it took years for me to build up the courage to try these things!

Wow - she looks more gorgeous than ever, stunning hair cut and I adore that little cardi - I am seriously thinking about getting my knitting needles out but feel that to fit that in with everything else I will definately have to give up work - now off to think of ways to convince the main man that this is an option we should consider!

She looks amazing, so beautiful :-) So I reckon you should take the credit rather than worrying about the blame!

Sorry about the ironing xx

She looks stunning, yay for her! I always have to get clothes to match my hair cuts too!

Very cute cardi, well done for getting it done! I have a mountain of housework to face because my sister stayed for the week so it's been building up. It's gonna be a fun bank holiday monday - not!

That little cardi is so sweet! I used to love knitting little sweaters for my boys when they were tiny!

Good luck on the ironing front, I'm right there with you, once I've cleaned the house from top to bottom!! he he he!!!

Your daughter is stunning! And I say, let the ironing wait... daughter needs a new wardrobe, so maybe Mom can knit her a spunky little shrug to go with that haircut!
