I thought I had better blog before everyone gets worried. It has been a busy three days - nothing major going on, but just flat out and no time to sit down to blog. On Saturday we were out doing a few jobs and I was sitting in the van waiting for Aaron and Harri who had gone into a shop. I started fiddling with my hair and looked in the rear view mirror and look what I found - my first grey hair!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't believe it!! How did it go like that without me even noticing!! Do they just turn grey overnight or what!? I was freaking out. Most of my friends my age have had a few grey hairs for a while, but I was happy that I could always say I had never had a grey hair - until now :(
Aaron has been going grey for a long time. He has this little grey patch in the top of his head that everyone comments about. A few years ago he was totally paranoid about it, and even wanted to dye it. I told him it would look ridiculous and he should just live with it as it's going to get worse anyway. At school all the students ask 'did you dye your hair Mr King?' and he gives them his sarcastic tone back 'um yeah! I thought it would be really cool to just dye my hair grey on one patch on the top!'. Or else he will say 'no, I'm going grey since I started teaching you', or 'no, I was painting on the weekend' (depending on which mood he is on the day!).
I'm rushing out to buy a box of hair dye this afternoon! Even though I'm almost 35 I don't feel anywhere near that, but it's times like this that you are given a reality check and know you really aren't as young as you feel.
