Today wasn’t so much a birthday outing as it was a dripping wet drive and dismal walk from the carpark along to the hairdressers. At least the old ladies were in good form for banter. And for the record, I am not one of the oldies there. Not by a long way. I have twenty years or more to go. I have to admire the staff for keeping good humour with us all. It is a small salon, so there is a lot of moving and shifting and shuffling around of bodies from waiting couch to basin to mirror to dryer to mirror to payment desk and thence out the door. And all to the accompaniment of Radio 2 with a banter of its own to add to the cacophany in the shop.
I think not. So I think the birthday treat for today will be to do some amazon shopping.
