I went to the hairdressers and took the first step of going red. I think I knew I wanted to get to blinde eventually but was very excited about the red along the way! I loved – still love – red hair and I know I will go back to it at some point, when doing my regrowth every 30 seconds (or thereabouts) gets too, too much. Here it was still darker than I wanted but going from dyed black hair over bleached white hair back up lighter again is no easy task! I liked seeing the beginning of it all. Even if I had my eyes closed half the time..! I went to see Dita von Teese at the lingerie launch – and saw the kind of red hair I wanted, too! We went to a vintage sale at Como House. Nothing there for me, but the house and grounds are beautiful. My collection of full skirted dresses was slowly, slowly growing. They're not easy to find here but they are perfect for summer (and spring, and autumn, and sometimes winter!) here. I'd had these two for ages and was wearing them more and more often, and finally committed to the decision to find more, too! And our Autumn here really is beautiful – it's finally cool enough to enjoy being outdoors again. This is our friend's cute pooch. I can see now that last March was much cooler than this one. I started to spruce up the tiny bedroom where I keep my clothes. (This makes it sound like I have a LOT of clothes, and all I can say is, I wish that was true!) It feels like it was the start of so many things, and ages ago and not that long ago, at the same time. It's so wonderful how our blogs can show us time!
