Fruit Salad

fruit saladLooks lovely, doesn’t it.
All that’s missing is either the double or single cream, ice cream or fromage frais, or if you’re feeling really good, nothing else at all and just tuck in.

Now imagine washing in it.
Or washing your hair in the juice.

Gone are the days of shampoo for normal, dry or greasy hair.
Shower gels, bubble bath, soap, in fact anything to do with washing one’s body or hair now seems to be fruit linked again, and I’m just glad I’m nowhere near a group of monkeys as I’d be mobbed in my tracks.
fruit monkeys 2Last week, I used the last of my apple shampoo. It was also great to use as a bodywash because it was mild and gentle (aahh), so only one bottle necessary to go up to the shower block to do the deed.
Do you think I could find it on the shelf in ANY of the discount stores I frequent and know stock the brand? Not on your nelly.
Everything this time around is pink.
No, I do not want pomegranate, strawberries and cream or raspberry ripple.
Neither do I want a plum or blueberry rinse thank you very much. I just want a BASIC shampoo to wash my long hair, without it going frizzy.

The last time this happened, I ended up buying a coconut and lychee shampoo because it was cheap and smelt nice. I couldn’t find that either, BUT I did discover a white cream shampoo for long and (promised) shiny hair, so bought that, hoping I wouldn’t glow in the dark.
It was useless as a body wash though, so I had to resort to getting shower gel as well.
Here we go again, hunting for a suitable fruit punch.
I felt like punching something I can tell you.
Anyway, I opted for a lemon and tea tree concoction, mainly because Hubby likes shower gel and somehow I don’t think Peaches or toothpaste minty would suit!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. A hook and non drippy shower gel.
    Obviously a man of good taste.

    the body shop used to do a grapefruit shampoo which smelt so like the real thing, it was really unnerving putting it on your hair.

    • I remember The Body Shop ranges. Some of their stuff was really overpowering. There was another ‘natural’ range company too, Lush or something. Great fizzy Bath Bombs, you just had to be careful not to drink them!
