I bought a set of Wahl clippers and different sized "combs" last week. All over number 6, reducing numbers to taper the back, tapered combs for around the ears and no comb for trimming here and there. Pertly done by my wife and partly by myself and ... success! I visited my parents today and they thought I'd been to the barbers.

I also did two of my sons' hair - the third decided to stay with his mop ... and not because of the results with the first two.

My wife managed to get an appointment to have her hair done this Tuesday.

I read Steve's comment a short while ago and nearly choked on my coffee!  (Imagination working overtime ;)).

I went for an eye test today, it being two and a half years since my last one. I knew I needed new glasses for driving as my vision was a little blurry when I wore them, and my prescription sunglasses were over 7 years old, so I figured it was going to be expensive. Imagine my state of gobsmackedness when the lady told me my vision had improved since my last visit, I would easily pass the number plate test and I no longer needed glasses for driving! Not only that, but my short-range vision had improved slightly too - my existing glasses were fine and if I needed any more to get some 10 ones from the chemist. Retinas are fine; only the merest hint of the beginnings of a cataract to spoil the perfect 10, but even that's not going to cause any problems for a few years yet. Deep joy.

Now if only the same could happen to my hearing...

Cheers,

Chris
