4 month

one winter, 100+ day lockdown, no haircut.

After years of well trimmed hair, it came as a shock to see a hippy staring back at me from the mirror in the morning.

Hair standing up in all directions.

Blond, grey, white, all tangled up.

But it also came as a surprise to have a warmer neck, without a scarf. Nether experienced that. Even with my fine stranded hair.

I noticed yesterday, when I was trying to repair a MacBook, the cold airflow around my neck.

Yes, you guessed it. Yesterday was the day of a haircut. What a feeling.

Neat and tidy. And no more enticing for Magpies, who wanted their share for nest building.

Only now, they are swooping to protect their young or out of more sinister reasons.
