I’ve pinched the link from Melanie for the hair question!

If you could have your hair any colour for 24 hours, what colour would you choose?
Hubby photoshopped me when we thought I might need chemo in 2016 and there was a chance of losing my hair
I like the pink (my natural colour is second from the left)
Are you a Hitchcock fan? If so, what is your favourite movie?
Not a fan as such, but I enjoyed The Birds and Vertigo.
Do you decorate for Autumn/Halloween and will it be affected by this year’s craziness?
No. We had a sweetie bin for Trick or Treaters for a couple of years, but see nothing now.
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!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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.
Pink looks good.
I fancied it most for a wig. My sister ended up dying her hair pink for charity years before, her husband dying his beard and hair pink too. They looked like a pair of candy floss (aka cotton candy in the US) rejects from Willy Wonka. He looked great actually she not so much as pink was definitely not her colour.
I never have tried the rinse out ones ever.
My hair was too dark for highlights to take, so the stylist had to bleach my hair first and then highlight it. No-one noticed. My sister went white after the birth of her second daughter in 1982 and decided to go ‘blonde’. Her previous colour was almost as dark as mine, so it was quite a transition. When she had it highlighted later, it went brassy and bright yellow.
Bleaching the hair makes the color brassy. Very skilled people can do it right.
I was disappointed my highlights didn’t work, even though a professional friend did it for me, but will never forget how bright Sis went, and she’d been to a salon!!
Turning dark color into blond is always a bit tricky. The results are unpredictable
My sister was white when she went blond, and my highlights were supposed to be red, but ended up the same as my natural colour. other than a colour rinse shampoo, I’ve never coloured my hair since.
I have salt and pepper hair if I don’t color, but I do my roots every 4 weeks.
I have more salt and pepper than brown now, but Hubby calls them my ever widening Rogue streaks!
The pink is cool – if you can carry it off. I’d be more purple or turquoise
I did color my hair deep red once for husband’ birthday. Gave him smile
I liked the pink,but as things turned out I didn’t need to worry as I only needed radiotherapy
I just wish my red was as vibrant as it was when I was young. I’ve never dyed it so I’m not going to start now… As for Hitchcock I liked Rear Window, Vertigo, The Rope, and the Man Who Knew Too Much – I’m a big Jimmy Stewart fan, Hitchcock less so. As for decorating – I put out my pumpkin and spider and cat and witches kitchen hand towels. That is the extent of my decorations.
We squirted some kids with silly string one year as they tied to cash in on the Trick or Treat having made no effort. They came back and improvised, one standing on our step with his coat over his head and his friend poking his head out from under his arm.
