    We all do things everyday that are interesting which we tell people about but we never talk about the mildly interesting things we have done

    At work today, there was no clean tea spoons so i folded a large straw in half and used it as a spoon to stir my tea.

    Its not the most interesting thing, but it is mildly interesting

    A hairdresser once told me that unless your hair is really, really filthy, you only need to lather once.

    I haven't used anything on my hair for three years plus since I thought I had a frozen shoulder and couldn't lift my arm to shampoo. All I do is wet hair in the bath or shower, hairdresser didn't know for at least a year although if you have greasy hair I probably wouldn't recommend.

    I only ever shampoo my hair once, if I did it twice it'd dry it out even more.

    What's more, the new "thing" is to use a shampoo that isn't actually shampoo, it's conditioner

    I tried it and found that my hair managed to be both drier and greasier than normal...

    I don't even understand what washing it twice is supposed to achieve - my hair is exactly the same after two shampoos as it was after one. I just thought I'd give it a go in case it was miraculously life changing but nope. And I'm slightly resenting the extra time I had to spend rinsing my head now, I could have had an extra minute in bed!

    Yes, I had a look online. They are specific products. Probably just a gimmicky thing. I might try using just conditioner and see what happens.
    I don't wash my hair very often anyway, as it's incredibly dry due to years of colouring.

    Mines so fine that using a conditioner just leaves it lank and greasy. Now and then I use coconut oil, leave in for a few hours and shampoo out

    What is this hair of which you speak?

    I made a pizza from scratch today using a modified slimming world recipe. I had half for lunch and will have the other two quarters for tea. It was a common or garden cheese and tomato with herbs if anyone is mildly interested.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    It has to be treated regularly with all sorts of lotions and chemicals just to stop the people so afflicted looking like the Wreck of the Hesperus on its way backwards through the hedge.

    I've never heard of wizza, but I do regularly have to have a wiz. I've never made a tortilla wrap either, and calories aren't my main worry when it comes to food; it's salt.

    Saw Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes at Curve, Leicester. Though car parking was manic as it was a sell out.

    Remember to leave 15-20 mins earlier for Matilda in March. That sell out in 2.5 days!!

    Today I cut the front hedge and moved all the bird feeding paraphernalia further down the garden to stop the little !!!!!!s darlings from crapping on the windows and garden furniture.

    I've been putting some pictures into frames and hanging them up. Trying to decide which picture should go where is proving more difficult than I thought. I am starting to have great respect for gallery curators who have to hang and organise hundreds of the things.

    I went into a pub today and had a glass of lemonade..It was whilst ruminating upon my tragic life that I espied a sign above the Bar..

    Very wise, and vaguely interesting, I thought.
