I think I was mumsy long before I actually became a mum. I have always opted for the comfortable look ...apart from a rather memorable Opticians Ball at uni where I went to buy a dress and came home with a tiger print number in lycra which tied up at the back with gold ribbons. I didn't wear that dress to the Ball. The one I did wear got some attention from a rather older but dishy optician but was a bit more of a sober colour.
Anyhoo I digress. I like comfy as it's easier. I can do glam but it's just such a faff.
I went all mumsy today and had my long hair cut into a bob at Macs Hair in the Slade (so mumsy I couldn't even bother to go to a town salon).
I love my new hair.
My tot has yet to notice what is different. Hubby said the back was like Louise Brookes .... oooooh the rather sexy silent film star (that's me talking, not him).
So maybe not so mumsy after all. Now I just have to find my flapper dress.

I think it sounds lovely, and certainly if it looks anything like that photograph!

Co-incidently, I'm about to go for my two-yearly bob-chop. The trouble is keeping it straight and slick...

Alas, I do not look much like Louise Brooker. But I still love the hair.
They had straighteners in the 20s. I think I'm going to have to get some small ones...I used to have large straighteners but threw them out :(
Or just wear lots of hats.
